They sent an email, I went back to check the status checker and it looks like it updates after the email is sent to "decision rendered"

In!! Do you guys think it’s best to send in competing scholarships ASAP?

Only if you don't think you'll get an even better competing offer by the Jan 20 deadline they gave. Otherwise, I'd wait it out so you give yourself the best shot and don't have to go back and try to haggle with Wake again.

That’s what I was thinking. This is my first acceptance that didn’t include the scholarship offer immediately, so it feels like I can’t even let myself be too excited yet ugh.

When you receive your scholarship correspondence (probably around late January) it comes with a scholarship reconsideration form where you list your competing scholarships and they process it for you.

Legallyblonde was asking because the email advises admits to send competing offers before Wake send out their initial offers. Good to know if we don't we might get a second chance though!

I am personally not super familiar with it, but we have an IP Journal at school and its definitely something the school is really proud of. The Journal has IP Lawyers as advisors from a wide array of law firms in NC. Here's an article posted by the school a couple years ago talking about IP at Wake. http://news.law.wfu.edu/2014/06/wake-fo ... -programs/

Any other questions feel free to ask, need something to do while I wait for final grades.

Is it worth trying to wait for a CRS fee waiver if possible (3.45/169) or should I just suck it up and pay the $75? I will probably just suck it up by 1/2/2018 anyway.

I’m a current Wake student and spoke to Dean shively before I went home. He said that they’ll send out another round this month. They just accepted the top applicants first round

Anecdotally the people I knew who had IP backgrounds did pretty well (granted, most of the people in the group also did well academically). Several went to biglaw firms or IP boutiques of some sort in places like the Triangle, Atlanta, etc., and at least one to Silicon Valley. But I think those prospects are generally better for IP people across the board.

Does anyone know if they send acceptance packages in the mail? I was accepted in the first wave in December and never received anything.

I remember getting an acceptance package last year. I was also accepted in December, but I couldn't tell you when the package came.
