I don't know how they decide. I mentioned a few pages ago that I also got the SIL mention and live super far away, but I got nothing. Why don't they like me?

Can anyone think of a non-annoying way to ask about it?

Didn't hear anything over here. I'm going to go ahead and chalk this up as a reject for me (WUSTL kind of a reach for me and I didn't really expect to get in anyway-sour grapes much?). All this "gone complete x/xx!, I'm in" updates are driving me crazy. Haha. I can't even finish this post without checking the status checker one more time. Commence more nail biting and mouse clicking....btw also a 1/26er

I'm going to also assume it's a ding from WUSTL considering I re-updated to 1/12 and have heard nothing yet. Oh well, it was an UBER-REACH for me.

in other words im around 25th for both lsat and gpa, a little above for lsat, but have what i think are decent softs or at least good experiences...
honestly the 1/26 update blew me away and its been driving me nuts.

All things are possible .. It's unlikely though TBF.

Nothing for me either, I'm retaking though so maybe they were like oh we'll update her, oh shit nm. At least that's what I'm hoping.

Ps-I really hope WUSTL is a reverse splitter lover! btw 25th and median for LSAT >75th for GPA, but not a lot.

both traditional splitters and reverse splitters do well in regards to chances of admission to wustl. traditional splitters (2.9/3.x, 167+) are a lock for an acceptance. for reverse splitters as long as they have at least a 163 they can almost consider wustl a safety as well.

With regards to the travel stipend, do you guys know if it's reimbursable regardless of whether or not we enroll?? Likely going to the 3/26 one.

So, for those of us likely to matriculate...are we going to be gainfully and happily employed when we graduate, or homeless and saddled with debt? Reading this board and xoxo have given me the impression that only those on the Yale Law Review are finding work.

Also, anyone else interested in or thinking about JAG?

are you hispanic? though hispanics are URM, i get the impression that they're treated like ORM when it comes to admissions at Wustl. hispanics make up less than 1% of Wustl's student body (though 25% declined to report their race/ethnicity). of course if you're a splitter none of that matters, however if you're not...

they reimburse whether or not you enroll. 3/26 as well. i figured it would be the livelier one of the 2 remaining dates...also better weather?
