In! Via phone call last night, then snail mail packet/email just now (they are very thorough). Graduate fellowship and $10k scholarship. I'm >75th LSAT, 25th-50th gpa. I haven't been following the status checker super well, but I only submitted about two weeks ago, so I had a fast turnaround. Good luck to those still waiting.

That's weird that everyone seems to be getting an email and regular mail the same day.

I got my package in the mail finally; it took ~10 days to arrive, but I'm in TX. Received the graduate fellowship that roughly amounts to $39,000 over 3 years.

I've noticed a lot of fellowship admits. Do you think this had an effect on the first few admits?

Congrats to everyone who got in! I was accepted last week as well and W&M has been so cordial and welcoming all the way from the message on the acceptance letter, to the personal phone call, and the scholarship offer. I wish you all the best of luck in the process. If you are interested in my personal stats you can PM m.

Go get em this cycle!

I've also been held for further reviews. I called the admissions office and they weren't very helpful about what that means. Is anyone with the same status sending a LOCI or is it too early for that?

Also, congrats to everyone who's been admitted!

Declined acceptance today. I hope one of you on hold gets my spot.

Best of luck!

Under Review today. Submitted it yesterday. Hopefully this will be a fast process and I'll get my first admit soon!

What do you mean exactly? I was one of the grad fellowship admits (though I didn't apply for it), so I'm curious as to how many people get the fellowship.

I was wondering the same thing since I got the grad fellowship as well.

My file is listed as incomplete, although they've received my application several days ago. Should I send an email asking I need to send something else...or has it just not been initially reviewed yet?

Noticed my requirements check box shifted from the application requirements to check boxes for photo, health form, etc. Hopefully that means good news is on its way soon. :mrgreen:

I was just accepted at W&M and W&L less than 10 mins apart. Coincidence?

When and through what medium does W&M send $$$ info? My acceptance email didn't state anything about it.

I received my $$$ info through a USPS Priority Mail. They called me to tell me I had been accepted on a Sunday but they said they had mailed the packet on Friday. It was delivered on Tuesday I think. Congratulations!

Congrats! Mine came via the UPS package they send, a day or two after the email (East Coast).

Those who've gotten fellowships: which did you get? They offered me Library!

Did they actually offer a specific position? In my letter they just mentioned that, at least in the first year, I would work either in the law school administration or law school library. They didn't say exactly what I'd be doing.

To anyone familiar with W&M: how important is it to have ties to the area if you're shooting for DC metro or the other large cities in VA? Is the W&M degree portable to other areas where you have stronger ties?

I like the idea of studying at a school/area with so much history and having a shot to practice in the DC area, but I'm worried about my lack of ties to that part of the country.
