Maybe you should call them... unless your GPA is hell I can't see them still deliberating on you - it took them about a month for me and my GPA's not that great.

You really really should ... I had a friend last year apply with a 170/3.8 never heard anything from them, finally he called, they had lost his application.

when did you apply? i just received my status check but my status says incomplete. I'm not sure if there is anything missing from my file, or just that i recently applied so they haven't completely added all my files.

Do they have a step between complete and decision? Such as "in review"? Also are decisions made through snail mail, status checker or email?

Thanks for your help guys.

No "in review" ... you get either a decision, silence, or a series of nerve-wrecking updated "complete" dates (see this thread history)

thanks... yea i've been reading the past pages. that one person though who got accepted within 8 days is almost hard to believe...

everyone whose still waiting for a decision after changing complete dates a couple of times.. do you guys have great LSAT scores as well? 167+ that is? seems like WUSTL only aims for high LSAT scores...

Hey All,

Had a quick question. I was accepted to Wash U. with a note stating that I am being considered for Scholars in Law scholarship. Live more than 100 miles from Wash U. but did not get a note at the bottom of my "admitted students day email" stating that they would pay for my travel. Anyone know how they decide who gets it? Is it worth calling them about this?

No one knows. Question was asked before, too, you can probably try calling. Worst case is you waste a couple of minutes on your cell phone plan this month. :)

It wasn't in the admitted student day email, it was in the bulletin board email, at the bottom.

I also have no advisory in the email I got about by when I need to give a seat deposit or officially withdraw. Will I get one later?


wow how did you get notified? email? also do you mind sharing your GPA? great lsat btw and congrats!


I missed this, sorry.

And I promise I'm not trolling. I thought my father was trolling me when he called me because I hadn't seen the email yet. :oops:

My mother forwarded an email she received(permanent contact info slot on LSAC common app) to me and my father.

GPA 3.36 to 3.50 depending on whether or not you factor in a near 4.0 Junior year abroad. Around 3.36 without, which is what LSAC reported in their GPA main number. My junior year was reported on a separate foreign transcript evaluation sheet(s).

So I was accepted back in Dec and just received my admitted student flash drive. There is a ton of information on it, but no mention of a scholarship. I was just curious if anyone had received scholarship info on their flash drive or if that was to follow later.

I don't think it would be on the flash drive. That would require them customizing so many drives whereas now I assume the files are delivered on the drives to them and they don't do it themselves.

On the Checklist For Admitted Students it says scholarship awards will take place between Feb-May. Someone asked the admissions office a week or so ago and were told the first round would be notified on or around 2/15, so we will not find out until sometime next week it sounds like.

They probably just leave that wide of a window for people accepted off the WL and for redistributing scholarships once people withdraw or don't send in their deposits on April 1st. I'm sure if you're admitted already you should hear about any initial scholarship information by the end of March, assuming they actually start next week.

Just got an email from santtta clara telling me it's not too late to apply even though its past their app deadline. All I saw was the word admissions in their email address and my heart stopped. HATE
