Nobody can say for sure. But, how do your sent/complete dates and GPA/LSAT dates stack-up to everyone elses?

In general the acceptances seem to be for:
1) relatively early submission dates (sent in october, and complete before november)
2) stats that put W&M as a solid target school, or splitters (high LSAT/low GPA, for example)

The people who seem to have not heard yet look like:
1) slight reaches (GPA/LSAT a little below medians)
2) YP candidates who can get accepted T20 or better (stellar GPA and LSAT)

Mine hasn't changed yet and I think I stack up pretty favorably for a splitter. 171, 3.28 and a completion date of 10/8.

I'm a slight reach. I'm just wondering if they would send out any rejections at all. If I sent in a 1.9GPA with a 122LSAT would they make me wait until March 24 for a reject notice?

Has anyone out of state actually gotten the change under mailings? I'm at decision pending but no new mailings; sent 10/15, received 10/19, complete 10/26. Numbers are 169/3.91.

You and I are virtually identical - decision pending, same received and complete dates, and nearly identical numbers. I'm out of state but no changes.

Yes. I am out-of-state (close though as a Maryland resident), accepted, and have lower numbers for both GPA and LSAT.

Meh, I guess I'm just being impatient. It was really so much better when they didn't have a status checker.

Mine just updated to simply state "decision pending." No more "initial review complete" message.

Yeah, I had this. Its almost like reverse progress. Or maybe it means that we were reviewed and are being help over to the next round of reviews? Who knows...

Yeah, it might mean that we weren't an auto-admit and they want to look the files over again.

I got in with the same LSAT as you and a lower GPA. I wouldn't worry for a second, you will get in. When did you apply? In state?


I applied at the beginning of Sept, and no I am not in state. :(

App ready for review as of 11/3. Submitted 10/28, so I'm not really expecting to hear back too soon. Do we know the latest submit date for people who've been accepted?

Accepted today! Was e-mailed my status checker this morning and when I pulled it up the application timeline said "Congratulations! Admit package mailed".

My numbers aren't great.. just 99%ile LSAT and a GPA above every school's 75th except for Yale, and even then only .02 below Yale's. :roll: Faked humility is obnoxious.

I was 'incomplete' earlier today, but I discovered they have updated my status this afternoon to 'ready for review.' I submitted last week and am out-of-state.

Good to know there's movement on these, but mine still says Incomplete. :(

I am sorry you feel so insecure that you must mock me. Have a nice day.
