From the numbers posted on LSN, it looks they want their GPA > 50s. I'm splitting with an LSAT > 75, and only got 45K total. Unless something was subpar on my app.

Take my words with a grain of salt since I saw this somewhere else in this forum, but WUSTL is known to throw lots of money around so some schools might not take it seriously, but still I don't see why you shouldn't give it a try though! (especially since WUSTL and USC are so close in rankings) :D

Yeah that's what I'm worried about. But then again, they're peer schools so I'm hoping for it. We shall see!

Got the email. Not thrilled but not surprised given my stats. Does anyone who applied for the public interest scholarship know if that information was also released/ decided on today?
