Checking in!

I just applied (fairly late). I'm a pretty extreme reverse splitter! I got an interview a day after I submitted. Just finished my interview on 1/24 and am just playing the waiting game :?

Checking in. Longtime lurker that just made an account yesterday. Still waiting on plenty of decisions, but given my full tuition Scholars in Law here and my lack of desire to go into Big Law, I think this is where I'll end up. Good luck to everybody!


Hello! I am thinking along the same lines. Are you going to admitted students days?

So, I got accepted at WUSTL on Jan 17. However, my online status checker never changed to "Accepted." It is still blank. Also, I haven't received an email about scholarship or any other information since the original acceptance email. Is this normal? Thanks.

At the top of the page it should say:

"A decision has been made on your application and an email will be sent shortly to the primary email account listed on your application. It is Admissions Office policy not to post final decisions on the status check page. Decisions are emailed to each individual applicant."


10 days without a scholarship is normal. Some people hear back in a few days, others take month+.

For anyone wondering about scholarship negotiation:

I sent in a scholarship negotiation letter with an updated resume. They took four days to reply. They were incredibly kind, congratulated me again on my admission and scholarship, and said they'd add my request to my file/keep me notified about any updates. If anyone wants to see the letter I sent, PM me!

I also finally received my acceptance letter via snail mail (accepted via email on 12/15). Nothing special, just repeated what was in the original acceptance email. No packet or anything.

Just got my acceptance letter too! A couple months later but I'll take it ;) Now I'm just waiting for my t-shirt...

I'd love to see that letter if you don't mind!

Just got my acceptance email four days after my interview! No financial info yet, though! I'm so psyched!

Stats in case anyone cared:
GPA>75%
LSAT<25%

Complete 1/8 and nothing since. I know others have been waiting longer for interviews, but I'm definitely getting a little freaked out reading the much quicker turnarounds people are getting. Hoping to interview soon.

I applied in early December and hit "Application Documents Received" on 12/12 with no contact since then. Does everybody who gets accepted get an interview? I'm worried about not having heard anything at all.
For reference, lsat is median and gpa is just shy of median

Just got an interview request. Anybody who has already done one via Skype have any insight as to what kinds of questions they ask?

Good news! I also finally got my interview request just now and will no longer be annoying everyone on this forum about being ghosted!
