No, not last year at least. I applied in Feb and was in in a week or so, no interview, but if you may be a yp risk, I would, even though yp doesn't seem to be prominent here

It's different this year. I think the applicants are required to interview (not sure, maybe it's only if they're offered one)



Can you guys define YP risk? like both GPA and LSAT above 75%?

Also, congrats to the new admits!!

I think Penn is the best example of a YP-whore

WUSTL doesn't really have a reputation for it like some other schools like University of Washington, but sometimes schools will waitlist a person if they believe that they will not actually attend, and perhaps just want a scholarship offer for negotiation purposes (probably more applicable with WUSTL, as after last year, people will be looking for fulls to negotiate with the lower T14, and maybe Vandy/UT/UCLA/USC).

I obviously don't work in admissions, but what schools seem to consider is:

1. Your numbers/likelihood of receiving a "better" offer

2. How likely they think it is you will attend - how interested have you been in the school? (this is where interviews come in). Do you have a reason to be in St Louis, Seattle, wherever?


This is all obviously based on browsing this site and are my impressions btw, but hopefully it gives you some idea.

Btw, some schools will do a WL YP initially, which sometimes you can get out of by sending LOCI.


Thanks for this. Sublime. My numbers are a bit better than WUSTL's applicants in general, i guess. But I went to UG there and really loved it. Hope they believe me. :|

I think there is zero chance you'll get YP'd if you went there for undergrad, even if you are 4.0/180. You have four years of documented interest in the school. Unless you wrote an essay about how much you hated the school or something...

Ooooooh, ok. I've had a "complete" status within a few days everywhere else I applied, and "under review" when my file was being looked at. I didn't realize they offered interviews while you had the "received" status. Ok, that makes me feel a little less anxious.

I was stuck on "App Docs Received" for about a week while other schools had me complete the next day. I called up admissions and the guy at the desk said, "Oh, yeah, let me fix that real quick." Boom. Complete.

I called early last week and he said they were catching up but that everything should be fine and I should get an update soon. It's been over a week since then and still nothing. I know they were on break after I submitted, but I was getting a little worried because it's 2+ weeks since they reopened. I guess they don't stick too strictly to the status sequence if some people were invited to interview while their status was still "app docs received." Also, if we're talking about the same guy he is just ridiculously nice.

Congratulations! Did you just hear this afternoon or was it earlier in the day? Just wondering if decisions are rolling out one by one or if they went out en masse.

this is need to know info.

Yes. He is the best.

Also, to address a few who asked. I got my interview request about 10 days after going "Application Materials Received." I did not have another status update until my decision.
