We want to keep you updated on the status of your application because we understand you are facing difficult decisions right now. As you know, you have been placed on the waitlist for Washington University School of Law.
We appreciate your interest in attending. Unfortunately, the admissions committee is now confident that they will not be able to re-consider your application until after our June 1st second deposit deadline.
We understand that many schools have deposit deadlines in the near future and we want to be sure you are fully informed so that you do not miss the opportunity to secure your seat at other schools.
If you wish to withdraw your application from consideration in light of this information, please do so by responding to this email.
I wish I had better news for you right now. Although the admissions committee is not currently able to admit you from the waitlist, they are impressed with your application. If you attend another school in the fall of 2014, we do invite you to consider transferring to Washington University School of Law as a 2L. We will begin accepting applications for transfer admission by January 2015.
I received the same email today.
1. Does this mean that they made a round of WL admits after April 15?
2. The wording is pretty strong. Did anyone else get an update that was worded more optimistically?
I received this email today also.
---->1. I don't think they have vacancy at this point.
---->2. Except for my name, exactly the same wording. I guess somebody really bothered the admission office with waitlist decisions.
WUSTL apparently has a good track record of admitting a good number of WL candidates - there's nothing in the email that says that there isn't a chance. I doubt they have accepted some people, if at all, given that the 1st deposit deadline wasn't even a week ago (and because of the time it takes to process deposits, etc.)
