Still says "File is Complete and in Review Process" (01/15, but requirement List now has Seat Deposited Received, Health Form, Photo...

Not the usual LSAC App stuff. Is this an impending sign of acceptance? 8)

I haven't gotten it yet either, but it's going to my permanent address at home and my Mom is really not the best at checking the mail, so I figured I'd ask. If you got yours on the same day like some other previous admits did I would be much more diligent in my requests that she check the mail everyday :) I'm not too worried/know I shouldn't complain now that I have a decision, I'm just anxious/excited to see it/scholarship info, etc. My status checker online still says I'm in review which I'm guessing might mean that it could be a while. I think some other people's changed to say "Admit packet mailed" or something like that in the mailings section but I don't know if that happens for everyone or not.

Hey and congrats to all who were accepted!

I'm a little confused about the timeline of my acceptance, because I got a packet in the mail yesterday from W&M with my acceptance letter (with a very nice handwritten note from the Dean!), scholarship info, etc, but I had never received an email from them, and what's even more strange is that I checked my application status online that same morning, and it was at "Application Complete: Review in Progress" (still is) (I applied just short of 2 weeks ago, and was shocked to hear from them so soon)

Needless to say, it was a huge/wonderful surprise getting my first acceptance packet in the mail yesterday, but I was wondering if anyone else received their physical letters before getting an email/having their online status updated. I even tried to set up my WM student account today, but it said my student ID number didn't match the email address I gave them.

I'm sure I'm just over-thinking this, but did anyone else get their actual packet of info before getting an email/call/status update??

Congrats! I think the timeline has been a little different between groups of people that applied at different times. I got an email acceptance on Wednesday and got the packet in the mail yesterday, but my status still says "Application complete: review in progress" and is dated 1/31. It's weird that you didn't get an email, though I don't think there's anything in the email that wasn't in the admissions packet. You may want to check your spam folder or call them to make sure they have your email filed accurately though? I just tried my email and student ID number and it didn't work either so I don't know what's up with that.

Went into review on 2/6. When I logged into the status checker this morning, I saw that the page had changed to include those four unchecked boxes under the requirements section. Really hope that means a decision is on its way!

Same here; and it was my first acceptance, too, which made it even more exciting. I am ecstatic!

Does the email include scholarship info if you are eligible for it? Or does it come in the mail later?

Didn't mention it. From earlier in the thread, seems like it come in the actual acceptance packet.

Accepted yesterday via email, no scholarship information attached or anything like that. Seems like if there's $$$ it will come in the packet from what others are saying.

Anyone have any experience negotiating with W&M? Do you think they'd play ball with a big offer from Wake? I have a half scholly at W&M but nearly a full at WF.

I can't speak specifically to Wake Forest, but in general I think W&M is willing to play ball. I sent a negotiation e-mail and they told me to send my other offers and an updated transcript and they would review my initial offer.

I went complete and "in review" yesterday, and had the four little boxes added to my status checker today. :shock: Kudos to W&M for being so fast! (If that's a sign of good news like it's been for everyone so far.)
Although, I did just receive an email about xyz programs and "here's a fee waiver" so I think they're a little confused, haha.

For those who were accepted on Monday (2/10), were your status checkers updated to reflect your admittance? Mine still says "in review" and the mailings section doesn't state that my acceptance packet was sent out. Just wondering if I should be concerned.

I was accepted on Monday the 10th (after applying on Jan 31!!!!), and mine still says in review. I think I received my official packet today but haven't been home to check to see if there's any scholarship information.

How have people been doing scholarship-wise who are <median LSAT and have a GPA that's > median??

I'm hoping my fast acceptance means that I will be getting something at least...
