I got in back in January and the scholarship information was sent about three weeks later. $114k. I have a full ride to UMN and SLU, with basically a full ride to Iowa (one of those packages with a guaranteed RA position and in-state tuition for the second two years). Other solid offers, but nothing that would really compete with WUSTL, and no news from T14s. I'm hoping to increase my scholarship package, but I have a sneaking suspicion that as an STL native they think I will be attending regardless of other offers. I do not fully expect them to match the offer from UMN, but it seems to be the closest peer school to use as a bargaining chip. They already know about my Iowa offer. Any thoughts on when/how I should be negotiating?

(Full disclosure: my father is an alum and I have recommendation phoned in from a family friend that is Federal judge and WUSTL alum. 167 LSAT, 3.75 GPA.)


114k seems pretty good. I dont think you can get much negotiating with the umn or slu offers though.

I interviewed nearly three months ago and still havent heard back haha. Numbers are competitive... between 25th and 50th LSAT and >75th GPA. Plus the woman who interviewed me said that she was giving me a great recommendation. So yeah... could be awhile :/

Literally the exact same as me. Same numbers, interviewed 3 months ago, and the interviewer said she was giving me a great recommendation. I'm worried I bombed the interview or something.


I doubt we bombed the interview tbh. She would've just not said anything if we had done poorly, not lie to us. At least I hope not lol

Went under review yesterday after my interview a few weeks ago. How long does it usually take for a decision to be made after this point?

My status date says 2/20/2017 on it? I assume they have just made a decision and that's when they will notify me?

Sorry to ask this again but didn't get a response last time. What's the turn around rate usually on getting scholarship info after acceptance?

Thanks! Yeah I'm just trying to get a date for ASW and learn more about St. Louis - I've never really ventured outside of California.

Can you PM stats? I know you said you were a reverse splitter. I am also a reverse splitter and interviewed a couple days after you.

In as of tonight also! Excited! Interviewed late last week and didn't think it went particularly well so kinda surprised here. Now if they can offer me a nice amount of $, St. Louis is a real possibility.

DerWille wrote:Has anyone else gotten a request to schedule a phone call with Dean Staudt? I guess I was supposed to talk to her when I visited for my interview but there was a scheduling mishap and she wasn't available. She E-mailed about a week after I got my acceptance E-mail asking to schedule a call. I set up the call for next Monday. I didn't think much of it but now I'm wondering if it's potentially about a scholarship ie the Deans fellowship. But they already gave me a scholar in law award and I wouldn't think they would notify of a scholarship if a larger one was a possibility. Does she speak with every admitted student? Just wondering if anyone had a similar experience.


Nope, no request here (accepted in January w/Dean's Fellowship).

Wondering if anyone has any knowledge about the possibility of WUSTL bumping up stipend awards. I feel pretty bad trying to do it because they've already given me a pretty generous amount, but some extra $ could potentially sway my decision.

Also included WAS THE FREE T-SHIRT OFFER. Stoked lol
