I got full at 3 schools (3 schools is the max you can submit) and only about 40% (18k) and W&M. I just sent in the reconsideration application. Ill let y'all know how it goes for me


Would you mind pointing me in the direction of the reconsideration application?


I think you might have to contact them for your own unique link. I have one, but it says in the directions to only submit the form once. The form couldnt be simpler, however. it is just name, school names, and school amounts with a box for notes at the bottom.


Good to know, thanks for the info!

Have any people who applied in October/November heard anything this month?

Applied early January... I believe the 2nd and heard back (accepted) on the 8th. Not sure if this helps

Got accepted today. Sent in a late application last week. Does anyone know if scholarship info comes with the admissions letter?

Scholarship info comes in the letter you receive via snail mail. My snail mail letter came in the day after I received the email

My snail mail (iirc) took a bit longer after the email. But the email was acceptance only, then the letter was a full admissions packet.

Any thoughts on whether it is appropriate to bring a significant other to admitted students weekend? I'd like them to feel part of the process, but also don't want it to be weird or detract from the weekend. Is there an established norm?

Wondering the same thing. I know parents are a no-no, and at 27 they haven't been involved in the process but my SO and I are looking at getting married while I'm in law school so having him come and see where I would be going to school and the area where he would be living is important.

I don't really see anything wrong with bringing an SO; after all, they're coming with you too. I've heard some people advise bringing SOs only to the social parts of ASD, and not the academic parts. But if W&M allows guests at their ASD (I haven't checked to see if they do or not) and you really want your SO to be involved in the process, my personal advice is to forget what everyone else thinks and bring them. I'm bringing my SO with me because there's no way I'm dragging them halfway across the country sight unseen.

Yeah, I'm a splitter and URM. I'm happy though :D


Oh boy, I have the same stats as you but have yet to hear back. This gives me some more hope! Congrats!


When did you apply?


Just now saw this message - sorry for the delay! I applied on 1/21! Still no news...

Haven't seen any movement for WM on LSN in almost two weeks, do y'all think this means another decision wave should be soon? The application deadline was March 1 so I would imagine more decisions would be coming out soon, especially for the people who applied months back.

Do it, no one will care. Honestly, many brought parents to the one's I've gone to so far and it didn't seem like a deal at all. People may silently judge but whatever.

Would bring an SO over parents, way more adult...

Especially if your SO will be moving with you, its totally appropriate to bring them, at least to check the place out. FWIW my SO's coming with me but doesn't want to go to the actual law school events, so he's going to be scouting out housing and such at all of the ASD's I'm going to while I do all of the admitted students stuff.

A consulting firm posted the 2018 US News Top Law Schools a few days before the official list comes out on the 14th. Looks like W&M dropped to 41, anybody have any insight?

That kind of sucks. But USNWR rankings are largely meaningless, so it shouldn't affect your decision too much

Just received an email acceptance :) My status checker doesn't say anything -- all fields are blank. It's been blank since my CAS report was submitted at the end of Feb (I applied with a Feb LSAT). I was honestly worried that my application might have been incomplete and was considering calling...

Same here! Got my email today during lunch and when I checked my SC it was still blank since I applied in February.
