took me about a day or two after they sent me the status checker. but i think they usually update on a monday/tuesday.

Okay, I submitted on Friday, so I should get it today or tomorrow? Thanks!


yes i would say by tuesday it should be complete. if not email them on wednesday and they will put you at complete assuming LSAC sent them everything.

Could you divulge your numbers?

WUSTL won't send out W/Ls and Rejections until April (according to lsn). And they've only been sending out admit bunches on Tuesdays.

Oh I like the sound of this. I'm at 38% chance on LSN. Reverse splitter, way higher than 75th on GPA, a bit lower than 25th on LSAT. URM, Int'l student, and really exceptional softs.

Oh I really hope this is good news, I have a bunch of top 20 acceptances, but this will be my first one under 20. I love WUST, but I have really good $$$ offers from schools just a bit lower in the rankings, hopefully they can match it.

I'm not In Review or Under Review. My Application Complete status date is the only thing that changed. Is this usual?

Just for clarity's sake, those are referred to as T30. 1-20 is labeled the T20.

Sorry for the language mistake, yes, you are right, I meant schools from 21-30.

No worries, just trying to save confusion for any n00bs that might be lurking :wink:

Sorry if this has been answered before but how do you find out first about your decision? Status changes, email, or do we have to wait impatiently for the mail. I just want to know what am I going to be obsessing about for the next few days.

They emailed my acceptance to me. I don't know about the denials.

Haha, spoke too soon - I just got the status checker email. Not complete yet, but I'm sure that will change soon.

First complete 1/12 or so. Just updated to 3/1. Hate to be negative here but my numbers aren't great so if we are all getting decisions tomorrow it may not be positive. 163/3.43

Interesting. My numbers are similar. I'm 164, 3.7. Maybe it's not going to be such great news.

The only hope we have is that LSN is accurate and they don't WL/reject tomorrow. Best case they accept us because we have a damn good PS or a "super-soft"

Keemos, I think we might just be getting another review. My numbers are similar and it seems like we are now in the same cycle (even though I applied on 2/1). My best bet is that they're getting ready to accept their last batch of >167 & >3.7. Then (I would imagine) they'll start looking for the >3.3 & >161.

From what I can tell, we need one more complete date before we get positive news. 3 completes = acceptance. So maybe this is just the second step in our review process?

You may very well be right but from what I understood, you go complete again on the day of your acceptance, so that would be the third update? I think the second update is basically a decision pending update. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

BTW i would go to WUSTL at sticker without question

I think this negativity is unfounded. Looking at LSP, those who commented on their low chances are at 48% and 58% percent chances of admissions based solely on numbers. If you guys are URMs or have good softs or wrote a really good essay, I would consider you locks. So dont put this negativity on the forum without reason. I think/hope this is actually good news.
