Review Completed 2/08.

I looked under the mailings heading, but there is simply a blank line with the date 02/08 after it. Perhaps it'll update further in a few hours.


You're in! Congrats!

I was Pending since November, and this morning it changed to Review Complete, so I don't think everyone has to wait til March to hear if you're Pending.

Ooohhhhhh Alice, you are killing me haha. I've been pending since 10/27. It was nice not having to worry about constantly checking that status checker. I was looking forward to checking it in March :P . Now I will be checking it often since people are being taken off pending haha.

LSAT at 75th, GPA around 75th.

However, I still don't have a description of what was mailed out. Everyone here tells me it is an acceptance, but I don't see evidence quite yet.

171 / 3.53

I've also emailed them twice over the past two months because I have no patience. :oops:
I don't know if that's made any difference.....and my W&M page doesn't show that anything has been mailed, so I don't know what that means.

I am in the same boat. Knowing what I know (or pretend to know) about W&M's cycle and from hounding these forums, I should be expecting good news, but nothing changed in the mailings.

If my W&M status checker says:

Does that mean that a decision is in the mail or is it just some cryptic way of being waitlisted or "in review"? Thanks!


It means you'll get a decision in March. Everyone who gets a decision before then is accepted, the March decisions are about 5-10% acceptances (is that what the consensus is?).



Where did you get 5-10% from?

Can anyone back this up?

I think a few pages back someone pulled that number out of their @$$ with some "calculations." They can only be based on LSN data though.

Also a few pages back, somebody said they talked to an admissions person who said that 50% of March decisions are acceptances. I imagine that these are the more borderline candidates. Right now, it seems that those who are getting in are people who are receiving scholarships. Those who will be paying sticker will get in later.

I'm feeling pretty *meh* about W&M at this point. I've stopped hoping.
I don't think its patience, just accepting the black hole that is their application process

How do you know they are in? Also, I have "Review Complete" and no blank line in the mailing list, does that mean the same thing?

It seems like the people taken off DP yesterday had very high scores... could this be the first waitlist or YP reject group?

Has anyone attempted to negotiate scholarships at W&M, and/or heard of anyone's efforts on this front?

Tried via email to negotiate my fellowship offer up, the Dean was really nice, but said as of now no. However, if you have an offer from W&L or something like that...it might be a different story.
