Hey guys... so this is really weird.

I was interviewed in September before submitting my application and was accepted in January. I recently got in touch with them, asking for a reference for a scholarship I am applying to and they said ok.

And they asked me to do a second interview... without telling me why.
Anyone else? What could this possibly be about??? They can't be rethinking about my offer can they..

Wondering this as well. I was interviewed almost three weeks ago and I have heard nothing. I have been accepted and wait listed at higher up schools, so I really don't know what to think rn.

+1 i got a full ride, but won't attend, so hopefully they allocate my cash to one of you beautimous people


If they've already allocated a lot of money to you but you know that you're not interested, you should withdraw so that it can be redistributed.

You can't use it tor negotiation if you withdraw.


Why not? The school that you're negotiating with doesn't need to know that you've withdrawn.


negotiating in bad faith is frowned upon. You really should not be trying to negotiate with offers you no longer hold. I wouldn't, you can do whatever you want, but you definitely shouldn't encourage others to.

Wl.

167/3.4.

I assumed it was coming. They're showing no love for 167s this year.

Another one to add to the WL pile. Def not surprised though.

It seems like they've WL'd a lot of people. Does anyone know if they accept very many people off the WL?

I'm sure it's been stated elsewhere already, but I'm getting the strong sense that there's a hard cut off right at 168 or so. 170+ seems to be getting fairly generous treatment even with shoddy GPA numbers (I know my 171/3.2 got a full ride offer).

167 here still waiting on a response. If they don't get back before everyone's April 1st seat deposit deadline I'm just withdrawing my application. Anyone else in a similar boat?

+1. I'm a 167 and I went complete very early January. Not a word from WUSTL (not even an interview request).

That to me is a shitty law school to attend.

user has been warned not to debate the merits of a school in the acceptance/denials/waitlists thread. continuing to do so will result in a ban

Went ahead and withdrew as well. Just crazy to think if this had been a year earlier I'd likely be coming out with $105-$120k in scholarship, and this year it's a waitlist. Playing the median game that harshly isn't the best look to me, but I respect the hustle.

Send an LOCI. It worked for me. 3.85/161. I sent one in four weeks post-interview and was accepted a couple days later and given a scholly a week after that. That was less than 2 weeks ago. Seriously, do it. They want us reverse splitters to really want it this cycle.
