Did they give you a time frame or did they just say "later"?

Got scholarship info today, covering 3 years tuition. :D


This indicates that it's roughly 1-2 weeks? idk if typical or not, just an example from pg. 13 (accepted 11/28, scholarship info on 12/7).

Yeah it seems like people with real high numbers are getting their full rides. I'm around the medians and I was accepted almost a month and a half ago and still no word on scholarship.

Hi, my LSAT is 168, that's median I guess. So just wait :D

Offered the Scholar in Law program (full tuition) about a week after initial acceptance.

Same. Been waiting since October 26th. Not too upset since I've been accepted elsewhere but curious why I haven't heard anything from them. I'm hoping I might get some activity from them once I send in an updated transcript with fall grades.

I was told that it could be a couple of weeks which would fit with what other people tend to be seeing.

Still radio silence since my interview in the first week of October. I'm kind of surprised since I've been accepted to a handful of higher-ranked schools. Oh well. Not sure what the delay is at this point.

Well something is going on with me. UR3 as of today. 75th for LSAT, and above 75th for GPA. Something has to be off with my app since Wash U. would have probably just accepted me fairly quickly based on their track record.

I've been working out a visit with WUSTL and they've granted me a travel stipend- yay! I'll be going late January. Anyone have any suggestions for my extremely short visit? It'll be my first time in the area.

Are you a reverse splitter or splitter? I had my interview 11/23 (though that's nowhere near October) and still nothing yet, either.

Splitter but it seems like that's WUSTL's bread and butter. I have a sort of specific professional background that doesn't mesh well with ST. Louis so I'm wondering if I didn't convince them I was interested enough in my interview? No clue, really.

Depends on your interests. St. Louis, more than any city I've been to, is a neighborhood-focused city. Each neighborhood has a distinct personality, and as a result, there's a lot of very different things to do.

I would maintain hope. It would take a lot for Wash U to decide not to admit someone who had the numbers. Wash U is typically willing to play ball with some extreme splitters, too. If your LSAT is above median, it would take a lot to not get admitted.

Appreciate that. Yeah, I'm wayyy above the 75th for LSAT so I'm hoping I'll eventually hear some good news.

Did you end up getting your decision the next day? I just had my interview yesterday and my status checker is now showing a future date too.

I ended up hearing back by email on 12/13. I didn't look at my status checker between the 9th and 13th though.

What about for a reverse splitter? I'm at 25th for LSAT and ever so slightly below 75 for GPA.

Hard to say for reverse splitter - you're probably in a little bit worse of a position because the 25th LSAT is just so far below the median. Depends how close your GPA is to the 75th, since most GPA stats will fluctuate a little cycle-to-cycle because of the granularity.
