+1. Not sure if I should withdraw or ride it out considering they took a -8 hit in rankings.

Contemplating the same. I don't know if I want to ride it out and I definitely wouldn't go at sticker which is what they would offer me, I'm sure.

Hey guys! I'm relieved that decisions are finally being released but am curious how many of you guys are still waiting. Applied 9/2....still nothing.

Waitlisted as well :/ Mostly my own fault for applying very last minute/not studying for LSAT. Plus a little bit of god for being sick the day of.

3.3/160. Top 30 school, in state.

Considering taking the June LSAT and sending that in if it improves substantially (which I think it might), how much would that improve chances that late in the game?

People overreacting to these little fluctuations from 25-50 is nuts. Does anyone remember W&L dropping from top 25 to the 40's in the last couple years? That said, William and Mary you need to match W&L's scholarships because this is VERY concerning!

No one has over reacted here..but yes I agree with that. Planning on pitting my W&L scholly against W&M...regardless of the ranking drop W&M will always be solid due to its prestige

I wish you luck. I negotiated with my W&L scholarship and others but did not get William and Mary to match. They did raise it, though. My W&L scholarship, especially after an unsolicited bump, is still far superior. William and Mary is making this an easy choice for me.

Not sure if I should try to negotiate again with William and Mary or wait and see if they will give an unsolicited bump after asking for statements of intent from admitted students. At this point I am leaning to W&L.

Did you use a competing offer or was it more of just a general request to see if they had anymore funds?

So do they really not take anyone off of their waitlist?
