I just got my second update 3/1. Does anyone know how long the turnaround will be for a decision?

Has anyone else gotten an email from a current 1L (after being accepted) offering to answer questions, etc?

I'm complete - 12/1/09.

Safe to go ahead and call that a rejection?

+1. Went from 1/25 complete to 3/1 complete. My numbers are below both medians, so this is a super reach for me.

Either they go through apps grouped by numbers... or we're all screwed.

To be honest, I think those of us, like myself, who aren't in yet, are by and large waitlisted or rejected. Sorry for the doom and gloom.

on one hand I second your doom and gloom, on the other hand a lot of us who haven't been given a decision yet have pretty strong numbers... I feel like a lot of the 2/3 group have 167+ am I right?

Seems like almost all of the 2/3's do. I don't know man, some 2/3's got in like 3 weeks ago. I just feel like the rest of us are getting the waitlist.

Applied in November, updated 1/29? and then now on at 2/3. (172, 2.8 ) In my opinion I'm a fairly weak canidate when you look behind the numbers, straight out of undergrad, no softs, average essay+ LORs. I have gotten into similar schools though, like UMN, W&L, UIUC, so I'm not fatally flawed as an applicant or anything.

Yea, I'm really not sure what to make of it. WashU claims that it doesn't do rolling admissions, but it must have some sort of process for choosing which applications to consider earliest, right?

hmm well there are the 2/23 and 3/1 people though... 2/3 has been too long but i think there's still a chance for those who applied later and got those later updates... or so i hope

but the 2/3s seem to by and large have the best numbers of all those groups with the 3/1s having the weakest

i might agree with that but 2/23 has numbers that fit well under the category of acceptances for WUSTL though... that of which is 167+ LSAT. i am one of them. applied early feburary and it hasn't been a month for me. (168 LSAT)

i think most if not all the 2/23ers are late applications with 167+ in which 2/23 is either the second or third update.
