Do people have summer associate gigs lined up? How does the employment outlook look over there?


If you're asking about 1Ls, definitely not. You aren't allowed to apply most places until December 1st. If you're asking about 2Ls, I think their class is faring pretty well.

sjs12 wrote:Hi all! Reverse splitter here with a couple of questions.

Does anyone have experience with a deferral to regular admissions from the early decision program? I applied early decision because I figured why not, but I knew I wouldn't get it as my LSAT score is low (3.92/163). However, I did want the committee to know that Wash U is my number 1 choice and if accepted, I'd put the deposit down that day, ha. I applied 11/16, interviewed on 11/30, received the deferral on 12/1. Anyone have experience with this and know when I should expect a decision by?

Unfortunately, my dad passed away this fall and I withdrew from the December test due to the obvious distraction there + lack of time to study due to family obligations. I plan to retake in February because I KNOW I can do better. My practice tests were much higher and I have never had an issue with doing well on standardized testing. If I get in with little to no money (which is what I am thinking will happen after my interview), is it common to retake the test after an acceptance to try to negotiate for more scholarship money?

Other tidbits of information: my interview went very well. She did ask about my LSAT score and I explained my dad's illness and subsequent passing, etc. along with the fact that due to those factors I believe my GPA and work experience are much better indicators of my potential as a law student and lawyer. She told me not to worry about it because my application was very strong. I also have several "softs" as I've heard them called: a personal connection to the law school, strong personal statement, and a very strong resume with a lot of experience in politics.

If anyone has any insights about my two questions I would be forever grateful! :)


I was deferred from ED too and got my acceptance a few hours after the deferral email

As a former teacher, let me say this: the only stupid question is the one to which you already have the answer.

You already had the answer in front of you, with minimal work. Not sass, just facts.

I saw the posts about scholarship offers in September/early October but also saw posts about going 4+ weeks without offers even with strong numbers. so no, i didn't think the answer was clear cut.

also as a former sass-master, let me say this: those comments were sassy

Wait didn't someone here say before that WUSTL's status checker never changes to "UR" or even "Complete?"

I've been at "Application Documents Received" since 11/8...

Mine says "Application Under Review" since 11/14

And at the top of the checker, it says: "Your application has been sent to the Admissions Committee to be reviewed. There are several stages of review. Over time, you may notice that the current status date will change even though your current status does not. These changes are not associated with the Committee’s decision. It is the Admissions Office policy not to post final decisions on the status check page..."

Same. Seems like people are getting interview requests inside a week or two typically. My app has also been updated multiple times (LSAT, new LOR) and still nothing. strange.

Ohh mine says "Application Documents Received - 11/8" but on the top it says "We have received your required application documents. Your application is under review by our Admissions Committee..+ exactly what you said"

So should I consider myself UR? so confusing lol :(

I interviewed the Thursday before last week and haven't received anything yet. Reverse splitter too.


Looks like we're going to have to wait a while maybe? I'm so sad. :(


Yes, but I remember my interviewer said the decision would be released in 2-3 weeks after the interview, so it's probably the end of this week or next week :? .


oh, they didn't say anything to me about that. have you gotten anything yet?
