not to say you've been or will be rejected or waitlisted (it may be that they haven't decided on your app yet) ,but some people who submitted their apps just as early as you are bound to receive their decisions after april 1st since wustl seems to only send out admit decisions before april. just trying to say that there are probably lots of people who have approx. the same app date yet have not heard back yet.

Don't lose hope if you haven't gotten an acceptance email fellow 2/3 updaters!


How about you make sure that doesn't have my name on it? Got the accepted email but still waiting for my flash drive...


Very strange... must be a result of snowpocalypse in your case. Maybe call and ask if it's been sent? WUSTL's admissions officers are extremely nice.

Snowpocalypse doesn't explain why I never got the email, and I'm pretty sure the last two solid weeks of worrying have cost me a year off of my life. Oh well, first decision FTW!


Did you go decision rendered on the 3rd or simply go complete a third time. I went complete 3 times around those dates, the last being the third, but have not gone decision rendered.

Complete a 3rd time on the 3rd, there's no DR status for WUSTL. That's why I've been one cheeseburger short of a stress-induced heart attack for the last 2 weeks, I've been waiting for the email nonstop after all of the TLSers with 2/1 and 2/2 updates were admitted the day of or after going complete. If the numbers on your profile aren't fudged, you may have a package coming in the mail very soon as well :wink:

looks like it! =D


Um, try no status update since 12/16. I think I win.


No, I win. Complete since 12/10 and I was told I probably won't hear until mid to late March. Below median LSAT and no GPA, FTW.


Man, I'm sorry (Pappy, too). Did you get the mid-to-late March estimate by calling them? Through an e-mail?

I went complete for the second time on 2/4. Has anyone else that has gone complete on this date had success? I'm just trying to figure out if this is a good sign or a bad sign.

I did and sent it in as a PDF. Never got a response, so I'll probably have to make sure they got it at some point.

I went complete a third time on 2/4 and got the email that day. So I don't know about only having gone complete a second time.

You guys must have missed it, I got in yesterday via the USB packet. Check the past page or two for info. Yours may be in transit :wink:

Edit: Page 78. 2/3 updaters, there is hope!

what do you guys think of the school, do the rumors about it's lack of portability scare you at all?

TLS anti-non-T14 hype. Less than 1/3 stay in St. Louis. If WUSTL truly wasn't portable, that number would be higher. It's not going to give you the same options as Duke, Michigan, or maybe even Vandy/Texas, but it's probably not as bad as you've heard here.

I have a feeling you will. As I said, I was informed that me not receiving the email is simply a problem with their system when I called. Rough 2 weeks, but it did make getting it even more exciting since it I didn't think it would or even could come without the email. I think the packet was here Saturday, and I'm only about 5 hours from St. Louis. If you're further away, it may be sometime over the next few days.

That's good to know. I hope that's the case for me. I'm out in California so hopefully in a couple days I'll find a surprise in the mailbox.

Much thanks. I'm still convinced I got it first because of my proximity... glad to be the bearer of good tidings to come though! Time to start obsessing over the mailbox rather than your email, guys :D
