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...


Booo it’s like they’re discriminating against normal sized women :lol: should’ve gotten the guys shirt I guess :P

I received a different full tuition award and was wondering about this same thing. I guess it would help if Slippin' Jimmy let us know if the stipend offer came in the same email as the full tuition scholarship email

Got turned down for ED on 11/30 and got sent to reg decision. Anyone know how long it will take since they already reviewed me once?

Has anybody gotten scholarship info beyond the initial email? Everyone recommends including a scanned copy of the competing scholarship offer when negotiating additional scholarships at other schools, but all I have from WUSTL is the email they sent me about a month ago...

I'm sure you could either send that email as a pdf, or forward that email. Whether it is a scanned form of the same thing or electronic makes no difference - especially considering that my acceptance letter was just my acceptance email, printed.

And that's fine but my adcomm totally teased me by saying they'd get back to me "in a week or two", so I've been on edge.

A pdf of the email is all you'll have from most schools

For me it went - radio silence for a month and a half; then acceptance, then scholly in the span of a couple days. They'll get to you, don't worry.

Interviewed on 12/20/17 and Admitted 12/22/17. Interviewer was very sweet and was also upfront and told me I was a strong candidate during the interview.

Does anyone who got a dean's scholarship know if they will let you stay on wait lists in April and May if you take it? Or do you have to pull from all wait lists in order to take their $$?

Also, any idea how many 1Ls are getting a full ride? Seems like a lot, but I don't know if that's kind of a TLS bias or if that's real!

Not sure about the waitlist part, probably is a question for admissions.

As for the amount of 1Ls getting full rides, I think I remember seeing somewhere that around 10-15 matriculate each year with the Dean's scholarship, but there are probably many recipients who opt for the T14. Plus there is major TLS bias for most results, as this site is very far from being an accurate representation of the applicant pool.

Interview Request 12/26 -- I thought they were all taking this week off!!

How bad is it if I put off scheduling an interview until next week when I'm back at work and can look at my schedule? I want to use this week to kind of finish all my applications before I prep for the interview.
