The fact that they were talking about not having any app fees at the beginning of the year, and then they roll this out at the end of the cycle, makes me think that they didn't want to run the risk of this new system getting clogged and screwing up the entire cycle. By having a much smaller number of applicants going through this easy application, they can find any kinks in the system and probably get this up and running for next cycle. Applying to law schools is ridiculously expensive, and if WUSTL is using some of their huge endowment to take even a little of the burden off of applicants, why do people jump to the conclusion that the ONLY reason they're doing this is to increase selectivity?

This could be the case. Or it could be to boost selectivity. Or it could be both. No matter what it is, it won't really impact admitted applicants.

If Georgetown (aka the punchline to every non-Cooley joke on this site) did the same thing the pitchforks and torches would already be out.


I agree. But I think that's mostly because of the accumulated suspicion towards GULC...not necessarily because people are in love with WUSTL. WUSTL certainly receives a fair amount of heat on TLS forums as well.

Guys this is a brilliant move by an experience and distinguished group of individuals. Society as a whole tends to be critical of innovation and this is a perfect example.

I went ahead and wrote to WUSTL in advance of scholarship decisions letting them know they are my top choice if it is financially feasible to attend in light of other offers. I mentioned my award from Emory among others so I will let you know how it is received.


I am very interested in hearing how this turns out yednock. Please update us with your scholly decision.

It would depend on your numbers...I'm not sure if updates correspond with an impending decision

The next round is on LSAC! Make it a $20 drink. (I recommend the Dogfish Head 120-Minute IPA. It'll knock your socks off.)

It's what, 3 12 packs of bud light?


Where do you shop for beer!?!


Or two pints from a PNW micro brewery :shock:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't easy app applicants going to have to pay the $21 for WUSTL to get transcript and LSAT, and recs as well if not sent directly?

Yup. It's probably more of a hassle to send those things directly anyway, might as well pay the $21.
