I'm a little more hopeful after reading through last year's NU WL thread (which, by the way, somebody should get going for this year... I'm in for the long haul, and I can't be the only one). Seems like a lot of folks got in, splitters and reverse-splitters alike.

I assume they'll send out an email or tweet about it tomorrow (the 23rd) -- they probably just wanted to get everything all set up online first?


that discovery was courtesy of intrepid status checker, nancybotwin.


Whoops, you're right... thanks Nancy, then!

How many people are in each group (i.e. heard back --> WL vs. limbo)?

No money offered AT ALL. Can I turn down 100k at WUSTL?


NU is worth it only if you are willing to work VERY hard in school and plan to sell your soul upon graduation. WUSTL means you probably won't be as successful in biglaw, but with 100K you'll have the flexibility to do something you actually like and live a more balanced life since you won't have the burden of repaying so much debt (if any?).


This is what I'm thinking.

Good luck to everyone on the WL! I may be withdrawing in favor of WUSTL (I know, most people think that's crazy).

Hmm...it seems like we have people with great numbers on both ends of it, so I don't really know what to think. I know Miranda should be in, so I'd be surprised if all of you who haven't updated are dings. Maybe we should start a list?

WL:
170/3.0x

Still on hold:

Yesterday nancybotwin found her letter was replaced right around now... looks as if maybe the rest of us won't hear today.
