Been at "application documents received" for nearly two weeks now. Anyone else take that long to go complete?

There are a lot of reasons why your application might be processed later than other people's, many of which have nothing to do with your strength as a candidate. So don't become discouraged if you're still waiting. It's still really early. I wasn't admitted until January my first cycle and not until December my second time and I got considerable scholarships both times. So no worries.

WUSTL is killing me with these emails that have nothing to do with admissions/interviews!

Just received invite for interview. Below Median on LSAT and below 25th GPA. What reason do you think they would offer an interview for a <5% chance applicant?

When complete in the beginning of November. I am assuming that my grad degree and military record has piqued their interest but not sure if it is worth the effort for an eventual ding. Fudge it....might as well put in full effort and hope for the best. Any tips on the phone interview?

Have a really good answer for the "why law" question. I did my interview in person and it was the most important question asked by a mile. Also, if you get Mary Anne Clifford, I would discuss why you want to go back to law school so badly. If memory serves, she was a late in life law student who got an MBA before attending Wash U law.

I would say you have a higher chance than that. There are people in my class with lower stats than you, I promise.

Does anyone know what an interview request means? I have a 170 and 3.73 so I believe I'm above their medians. And any tips for the interview? I'm doing it by phone
