Submitted on 11/3, interview invite on 11/9, interview on 11/29, accepted via a call on 12/5, and got offered the Dean's Fellowship today.

LSAT>75, 25<GPA<50. WashU is one of my safety schools but I'm actually considering going given the $$$.

Best of luck to all of you :)

Pretty standard questions. Mine were : tell me about being an international student in the states, why law, why washu, any hobbies.
Don't stress too much about it. It was pretty chill and the admission officer seems super nice. Whole thing lasted about 10 mins for me. Good luck!

Stats are 172/3.63. Engineering major from a top 10 undergrad, and a Master's degree from an ivy. WashU is one of my safety schools but I'm actually considering going there given the $$$.

Best of luck to all of you :)


Did they email the scholarship offer to you?

Yes. The email has all the details about the fellowship (full-tuition, mentorship etc.), along with "If you wish to accept this award, the committee requests that you fully commit to Washington University School of Law by our first deposit deadline, April 9, 2018. "

How are they with weekend admits? Had my interview last Thursday and the adcomm said I'd hear back in a week or two. Expecting this to be my first admit, waiting anxiously.

Anyone apply for the Webster Society scholarship for public service? Would that slow down getting a decision since they'd need to take time to specifically consider your qualifications for that scholarship?

Just be patient for now. The cycle is starting to pick up, so they are naturally busier, and if you are a splitter it's going to take even longer


Thanks. I'm an international applicant so I don'
t think my GPA carry much weight, anyway it was ranked AA.

Does everyone have a blurb at the top of their application status page? Something saying their documents have been received and their application is under review? I'm 90% sure I used to have one but now there are no notes or anything above my biographical information. Any chance this means they've made a decision?? Or am I just paranoid/neurotic?

Definitely go a size up! I unfortunately didn’t do that and it’s too small. Probably will be giving it to my 12 year old sister lol.

I went a size up and it was still too small! A girl on Reddit said she ordered the large and normally wears an XS and it fit her nicely...
