You never know, someone just went submit-admit in 7 days. I was insanely jealous :cry: But happy for him nonetheless, and I don't have any pity for myself since I submitted in early January. October though, wow... that's rough. Admissions is a cruel mistress.


damn nice stats. did you write in those 4 lines about why WUSTL? and when did you apply? you should get in... or maybe they think with that LSAT you would get into T14? (which you probably did if you applied)


I visited in October, so I wrote pretty honestly about what I learned from (and what was reinforced by) my visit. Awesome facilities and support equipment, good prestige, desirable region/city, good financial aid.

I think they'll infer from my numbers that T14 is possible but far from a surety. Since I'm likely to get no money from T14s and some/lots from WUSTL, they're about as desirable as any school that admits me and maybe moreso due to personal reasons. We'll see once I finally get an acceptance from somewhere :roll:

Edit: Didn't notice the date question. Applied around January 8th, final LOR came in ~14th. Complete 1/27 (called to make sure they had everything) 1/29 and 2/3.

Could we be getting yield protected?

I like to think that they're just deciding how much scholarship money to offer us.

I think someone else said that you can't use a bookmark and have to go to the status checker through the regular website and then it should work.

You can use a bookmark, just not the regular 'status check' one... maybe they're having an issue where it just won't load, like I had with Santa Clara.

No USB because no mail from Wash U, right? Not that they quit sending them out?

Yeah, sorry for the confusion. Nothing from WUSTL for me today. Just another invitation to get a Chase credit card.

I know someone else was interested in the Transnational Program. From their site:

Prospective Students (J.D. Class of 2013): TLP application information will be distributed to all admitted and wait-listed students in the Spring of 2010. You must be admitted or wait-listed to WU Law before applying to the TLP. The deadline for applications for J.D. Class of 2013 will be May 1, 2010.

I sure hope so. They said at the ASD two weeks ago that they would be sending emails out starting in "a couple weeks". That could be interpreted any number of ways...

radio silence until Feb 8, 2010.

ACCEPTANCE! :shock:

First decision of my cycle, woooooo! I'm so freakin happy.

P.S. I guess wustl doesn't believe in Application Received/Completed/Under Review emails?

Edit: In case people are wondering, I did write a Why WUSTL in the four lines offered on the application body. Maybe that makes a difference.


did you ever see your complete date change? or did you not check at all?

I just got the USB! It's pretty cool...now I just have to wait for scholarship info.

Also, good luck to everyone! They accepted me and I'm slightly below both medians from last year (and therefore thought I'd be an auto-ding), so don't lose hope!
