In as of 1/16 with a small scholly! W&M is pretty high up on my list so I'm def. happy about it. Has anyone had any luck negotiating for more merit aid from them? Total COA is going to be a significant factor in where I ultimately end up and, as is, I'd be paying OOS cost for W&M.

I'm curious about this as well. I'm wondering if a Washington & Lee offer could be used?

I'd hope so, my W&L offer was great. I'm using it against plenty of schools now

My W&L offer was strong as well. I know each school is different, but it seemed strange how far apart W&M and W&L offers were, considering their similar job stats, rank, and location.

Crossing my fingers...it seems like others who were accepted got e-mails though.

This may be a stupid question...but does this mean I've been held? Also, I don't really understand what being held means..

Yes, it means you are now in the general "not a sure thing" and "not an immediate rejection" pool. Your application will be considered against all the others beginning after the March 1 application deadline. Decisions will start rolling out for that pool of candidates around mid-March or early April. So... basically congrats on not being dinged right off the bat, but sorry you weren't admitted immediately. :-)

Hey all. First post but been watching these a lot since I submitted a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, I went complete on 1/31, status page changed today to include the four unchecked boxes. Anybody else? Is the consensus still that this isn't indicative of an admit decision? I know that's what the official answer is but wondering if I can get my hopes up yet/when I should expect to hear something. Any info that can help is greatly appreciated!

I'm on hold for further review and I don't have any boxes. I think I may have had boxes when I was under my initial review but I'm not certain. Status definitely changes to "under review" or something similar before decision/hold update. You're probably in review.

Thanks. Forgot to mention that I went under review on 1/31 when my file was completed. Status currently reads "File is complete and in review process." I'm 89% sure that the boxes are new today, which caught my attention and I started looking through for other people who saw them too. I know its still way early to be hearing ANYTHING though, so I'm not totally sure that it actually means anything. I haven't read that anybody saw them without getting admitted soonish though (but it could be happening a lot without people posting about it). Who knows. Guess I just have to keep waiting :shock:

Thank you for the detailed explanation. I've had the same status for a few months now and didn't really know what to make of it or what was happening with my file... Apparently nothing until after March 1st.

Good luck guys!

Know not to expect anything until March, but this is still going to drive me crazy! William & Mary is my number one, so a quick response would have been nice!

The woman I spoke with from admissions (some of the nicest admissions staff ANYWHERE, by the way) explained that unlike most schools W&M does NOT have rolling admissions. They prefer to review the vast majority of applications against one another all at once, so they can put together a group with the dynamic they're looking for in that cycle.

Has anyone had success negotiating scholarships? I've now sent an e-mail to the main admissions dept and an individual admin I met at my undergraduate's Law Day, but I've yet to hear back.

@BostonFuse, what's your breakdown? (Numbers/Scholarship Amounts) If you don't mind me asking. Also keep us updated on the negotiations. I'm thinking of taking a shot at that, too.

WM really wants to reject me! Got an email last week saying I could apply for a waiver. Deleted it. Got another email this week with an automatic fee waiver.
