As far as financial aid disbursement, last year it came out the thursday of orientation (which is a one week thing the week before classes start).
Wash U doesn't have a soft floor. I know several people in my section with GPA's that were below 2.8.
Wait I don't know who you are. Do you think ill get in 167/2.5?
I'm going to guess you'll get waitlisted. Your numbers are fine for what they want, LSAT wise. Yet the GPA is low enough and the LSAT isn't high enough and the rest of your app isn't shiny enough to make them that attracted to you to take them in now - I imagine your app (based on your posting here) has been in long enough that if they were going to take you right away, you'd be in already. Yet they might need you to hit there LSAT (which I'm guessing is going to be a 165, but it might be slightly different), so depending on what happens, you might get in off of the WL. They took a LOT of people off the waitlist last year, and I don't expect that to change this year.
As much as this goes against TSL wisdom, but when you are in that 'maybe' area numbers wise, not all numbers are the same. A 2.5 with a huge upward grade trend in a tough major, vs a downward grade trend in Poli Sci - the two are very different. Of the people I know with sub 2.8 GPA's, they all did VERY well first semester. Is there something in your application that makes them think you'll outperform that 2.5?
