Haha wow good detective work, but we can always start a new precedent. No?

My application is complete, but "current status" and "current status date" are completely blank. Does this just mean that it isn't under review yet? The application has been complete since Monday.

Also is it possible that the 0 number is due to all of the students who received a full ride going somewhere else? Or does it mean that no one received one at all...

I'm not sure. As far as I know, it's the people who matriculated. You'd think at least one person would matriculate with a full scholarship or more (see ASU's 509 for the 18 at tuition and 18 above tuition). This link might shed light: http://law.wm.edu/admissions/financialaid/. "Scholarships cannot exceed the total cost of attendance. If you receive military funding or external scholarships in excess of the yearly total cost of attendance as published in admission publications, your scholarship will be reduced accordingly." Sounds like they set an upper bound.

However, I'd like us to set a new precedent if this is true! Are you on lawschoolnumbers, btw? I'd like to follow your application progress.

Sure thing, nope, I'm not on it, but can make an account haha. Do people on here usually post that they're on it? Sorry not too familiar, I used to just look around the forums but never really posted.

And you're right, I was assuming that someone probably would've been baited by the money so you're probably right. Also didn't know that you could look at these types of stats.

As far as I know, people don't just blast it. Since people on here are generally hyper-engaged, it was worth it to ask. My account is the same name as this one.

The stats are pretty cool. Each school has to disclose information about their classes and about their employment. Definitely check some school ABA disclosures if you haven't already.

Just wanted to say, "how you doin?"
Also was legit wondering how long, for those accepted, it took to get the snail mail stuff. I got in on the 5th I think, and still haven't gotten snail mail. That being said I do not live close to VA.

Took about two to three business days from what I recall. Sounds like you'll likely get it today or tomorrow.

I'm going to be visiting the school soon and thinking about signing up for an informational meeting. The website indicates that you can email the admissions office for a stand-alone meeting. Has anyone done either of these? I imagine the general info meeting is with other prospective students if they are making it a point to differentiate here?
