I'm never gonna forgive myself for accidentally skipping a question on the LSAT if I don't get in.


From a 3L here, I'd give you about a 95% chance of getting in eventually, provided you don't have any unusual C/F issues or you turned in a personal statement with a ridiculous amount of errors. Or one of your LOR people said you were a racist or an anti-Semite or something.

IOW, I wouldn't worry too much.

As for the other posters, the adcoms do read TLS. They figured out who I was before I was even admitted. They have probably figured out who half of you are already. If you post your GPA, LSAT, and location on your TLS profile, it's pretty easy to narrow it down. And if your e-mail address is anything similar to your screen name here...the cat's out of the bag. It's okay...they're normal people (at least relatively speaking when it comes to the legal industry), and they have a sense of humor. They certainly don't care if you swear and shit like that, because all lawyers swear.

Bottom line is don't worry so much. Law school applications are stressful, but worrying won't change your fate. Save your nerves for second-semester 1L and 2L. You're going to need them when the first set of grades come out, and then again when you get rejected from nearly every firm at OCI. :D

Of course, I think I sealed my fate when I answered the question "How did you find out about WUSTL Law?" when I said TLS.

If you're going to call it WUSTL, then it rhymes with "hustle" except for a hard "t". Like "wuhh-sTle." As in "E'rry day I'm WUSTLing."

btw, xs20 started a fb group for c/o 2016. Come join in the fun! And by fun I mean listening to the sounds of crickets chirping (for now).

And really? I can't call it Woostl? :( Such a cuter pet name for it though.

Yeah, when our tour guide pronounced it, I wanted to correct her. I've always pronounced it without the t in my head.

I now have a funny picture in my head of the adcoms sitting down looking at our applications in one pile and our tls profile in the other pile, with a picture of sexy Stalin attached to sunny's.

I wonder if my acceptance/rejection letter will include something like "now please stop spamming our thread on TLS"

Checking in. Went compete back in September. Haven't heard a peep since, other than a new complete date (11/30). Good luck all!

Just to add more fuel to the scholly-speculation-fire:

Scholly's (or mine anyway) came out Feb 10th last year. I was admitted Jan 31st...so they made a decision on my scholly in less than 2 weeks. Pretty quick turnaround time.

Here's hoping award notices come out the week of the 14th so it'll sort of compensate for the obscene amount of money i'm spending on valentines day....yay for relationships

Id be surprised if they haven't already figured out who I was, considering how specific I've been with things such as posting immediately after my phone interview, my unique numbers etc...with that being said.....if I haven't said it before....WUSTL is my #1 choice.


I was thinking the same. With my posting here and the link to my LSN plus pretty unique numbers I believe it's probably not hard to realize who I am. I do wonder from time to time if any adcomm checked out my LSN....

I really hope this is incorporated into the promotional materials next year. Like instead of a flash drive, you get an unmarked cd... Intrigued, you pop it in and then it's a WUSTLin' cover version of the song.

I'm sure it's already been done, but this would make a hilarious Law Revue video

If I attend, I would be more than happy to be the lead choreographer for the video. Get in shape TLS, you'll be the stars.

It would definitely have to include a Katt Williams impersonator.

let's settle this now. I propose for the admitted students to call it "WOOstle" ("woo" denoted excitement)

and for those of us waiting to rhyme it with "Hustle"

thoughts?

Hustle with a hard "t" earns my vote.

The whole woo thing is weird to me.
