Been under review since 12/11 so hopefully I'll get a response this week or next, has anyone been waiting approx the same amount of time and already has a decision? I'm just barely under both medians, so we'll see if I can pull an acceptance.

You may have also just hit it at a bad time with the holidays. Have hope! From reading threads from last year, they start the ball rolling again sometime around mid-January.

Anyone else get that financial aid email today? I thought for sure it was scholarship info...

Oh well, at least we're supposed to know by end of this month. Nice of them to give us a date instead of leaving us to wonder when we'll hear something.

Yes also received it. Thought for sure it was scholarship info. Should know soon enough though.

Asked to interview. Unfortunate since I was hoping for some scholarship money :(.

No frowning! From last year's thread, Dean Shively came in and explained the interview wasn't a death sentence. Rather, it was a way for them to get to know some applicants better. It could mean they're deciding how much to give you. Not sure what the case for interviewing is exactly this year, but don't think it's an auto no-soup-for-you decision.

Has anyone else been asked to do an online interview for admission? I got an email, expecting it to be saying I was waitlisted but was pleasantly surprised that it was asking me to interview!

to clarify my last post....I was reading the above posts about interviews to be from people who were already admitted and being interviewed for financial aid purposes. I haven't received a decision yet.

I just got the same email! Hopefully it's a good indication!

Who else is anxiously awaiting scholarship info? Only two weeks left to go before their 2/1/14 date. The tuition at WF really isn't bad compared to other private schools - $10K/year cheaper than some - so you don't need $100K+ to make it somewhat cheap.

I searched through last year's thread and looks like at least some of the people who got video interviews we're admitted and even some with money! Great news to me, as I assumed I would be waitlisted at best because I'm slightly below both medians. I'm going to do mine in the morning, I figure it's best to get it out of the way and not stress over it. Good luck to you!!

Yeah, I think it's definitely a good sign. I also expected to get wait listed, or even rejected, since I'm slightly below one median and well below the other 25%. I'm planning on doing mine sometime this weekend. I'm expecting questions like "why law?" "why wake?" and probably a couple other random questions about ourselves/background. Good luck!

I think I might straight up tell them I need major $$$ for me to go since minnesota costs me 13k a year after my scholarship and Bama 9k. No sense I feel in beating around the bush.

For those of you who were emailed about doing an interview for admission: when did your applications go under review? Mine has been under review since 12/11 and I haven't heard anything at all. :(

I believe mine was under review since 12/11 and just changed to yesterday's date to indicate they emailed me a request for interview.

hmm, that is pretty disconcerting. I, like a lot of you who have posted that you got the interview request, am just barely below both medians. I suppose I'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Just got an email saying decisions are going to be delayed this year due to "an especially volatile year in law school admissions necessitating adjustments to our standard operating procedures."
