Congrats! First acceptance outside of Wednesday or Friday that I've heard of, maybe things are winding down.


Shoot sorry man this was about a month or so ago, just joined TLS yesterday though. Good luck to everyone hang in there! I'm still waiting on USC so I know how that whole thing goes. WUSTL is a phenomenal school, thrilled to be accepted.

Man my jimmies were almost wustled

Question for those already admitted:

How long did it take to receive financial information? Its coming up on 2 months without any correspondence from the financial aid department since my acceptance.

I do have gmail (they were having problems with their messages going to spam), but I followed up and still received no correspondence.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

So two months is a little excessive...does no correspondence mean no offer?

Unfortunately I would assume so :/

Received scholarship info today at 5:18pm EST, admitted 3/5 (if that helps anyone still waiting as far as timelines go). BEYOND thrilled.

Anyone have any details on WUSTL’s deferral policy? I emailed admissions a while back but have yet to hear back. More specifically, does anyone know if deferrals are binding and also what impact they have on scholarships? While I would love to attend this year, I have been asked to stay on for another year in my current role and an additional year of full-time work would certainly help mitigate my future debt load. Any insight would be very much appreciated!

If you defer, you agree to enroll in the fall. You can't apply to other schools. And your scholarship is locked in, you can't negotiate higher.

In my opinion, unless you're completely set on attending WUSTL (yay if you are), just withdraw and re-apply to schools again next year, including WUSTL

Many thanks! This is very helpful. I think I may end up just reapplying next year if that is the case. Depending on shifting political winds, I may end up being asked to stay longer so being locked in at WUSTL would be tough. GW on the other hand seems willing to let me defer without any constraints... It's a tough call to say the least.

You don't gain anything by committing yourself to a school by deferring. You'll be admitted again if you re-apply.

Deferring only really makes sense if you have a completely satisfactory scholarship package from your dream school and you have some personal reason for taking some time off

Consider re-taking the LSAT during your year off and re-applying

yay! That's great news. :)

Also, I got really excited when I got the "living in a global community" email because I only saw the sender and thought it might be scholly.
