But don't accepted ppl find out about scholarships later? I think the two on the 26th just updated, because they both show scholarships...


that might be. but why would they change their decision dates? i don't think they're linked, although someone changed it to day, but i think he just withdrew. question is why did all 3 of them change their decision dates?

Sometimes LSN automatically changes your date when you update. I hate when it does that!


well that's good. then historically based on patterns from WUSTL the last 2 years... tomorrow will have mass acceptances... let's all hope for the best.

I'm in the same boat. I also submitted last week but my status has not gone to complete yet. Did you get that email from Ms. Clifford asking you to apply? Is that why you applied l8? It's my reason.

I actually submitted my app the day I got my my February LSAT (2/27) and got an e-mail from Clifford after the fact. I forgot to send my resume in with my application so Anna Donovan e-mailed me on Friday telling me I needed that to go complete. Sent it on Saturday and now I'm complete 3/8.

3rd update might just be an update without an acceptance. it might come tomorrow though but there is no guarantee that a 3rd update means you'll get an email that day.

Oh i see. Mine went like this: got Feb lsat 2/27, got clifford email on 3/2. submitted complete app on 3/3. got app status checker email on 3/4 and it has yet to say app complete. i think my app is behind yours because even though i sent in a finished application, i still submitted after the 3/1 suggested deadline so that makes sense.

Just got the email. Since it results in spending only 5 semesters at WUSTL, your scholarship will be cut by 1/5 and you will only get 5/6th the total amount.

I may still consider it.


I hear you... 20% would be pretty substantial for me (and you as well, from your profile). However, the prospect of getting an LLM from Utrecht in addition to the JD from WUSTL, and the whole host of opportunities that opens up, is very, very intriguing. I am looking to specialize in healthcare and M&A (corporate), so the international/comparative law angle of the program is very enticing to me. M&A's nowadays typically transcend national borders...


The TLP is why WUSTL is my top choice; but I need to be accepted first. Not likely, but a girl can wish....

I am finishing my MA in Bioethics right now, so I really want to specialize in health and international law. I think there is a definite future there.


I have been calculating the incremental costs associated with entering the TLP. For me, that would be about $24K in lost scholarship + $16K for the 4th year in Utrecht. That's a pretty hefty sum that may just preclude me from deciding to apply/enter the program.

In the TLP FAQ, however, they mentioned that they were working out some options for students who are in the program to obtain some type of scholarship/financial aid covering the 4th year. That would certainly be a deal-clincher for me.

I am looking to specialize in corporate law with a focus on mergers & acquisitions. As the recent Kraft-Cadbury merger exemplifies (US-based Kraft and UK-based Cadbury), these mega-transactions typically span across borders and are thus implicated by various laws/legal systems.

I am pretty certain that corporate attorneys with the type of specialized training afforded by the TLP will have an edge as businesses become more globalized... pretty sure this program will become a much bigger draw in the coming years and wouldn't be surprised if the other top law schools follow suit.

I realize this has probably already been mentioned, but has a consensus been reached on what it means when your application status date changes to a more recent date, but the status itself still simply reads complete...?

Thanks in advance.

I am also interested in the TLP. I am wondering though how much of a competitive advantage completion of the program is, especially for people who are already fluent in a second language? Considering the extra cost and time associated with the program, I would only want to do it if it gives one a real advantage rather than just intellectual enrichement. Any opinions on that? I am hestitant to apply.

From what I understand, the thrust of the program is not so much that you will learn a second language; in fact, demonstrated ability to learn a second language is one of the qualifications they look for in applicants to the program.

The main draw of the program is that candidates will be trained in both US and European jurisprudence, and will thus be able to function effectively in a transnational/transcontinental setting.

If you are planning on working for a multinational corporation or a law firm that caters to multinational conglomerates that conduct business in both the US and Europe, you will certainly have a competitive advantage over attorneys who are only well-versed in one set of laws or the other. It may also open up avenues into other areas of the law. The link below is a very useful source of information regarding the TLP.

http://law.wustl.edu/international/index.asp?id=6420

Edit: The TLP may not necessarily be confined to US and European law and may encompass international law in general, but I would imagine those 2 will comprise the basic framework due to the locations of the participating schools.

It's Tuesday again (and two weeks since the last big wave of acceptances). Good luck to everyone...

...especially 2/3 splitters.

I will be withdrawing my application today. I'm lucky to be participating in Teach For America for the next two years, after which I plan on re-applying to law schools. I hope my spot opens up someone's chances.

I haven't been following this thread, so apologies if it's already been answered, but are Tuesdays when WUSTL sends out decisions?

I similarly applied Sunday after I got my February LSAT score, got my status checker e-mail the next Monday morning, but I'm still at "received" status. Haven't gone complete yet, and it's beginning to unnerve me.

Usually Tues or Thurs this year, and generally no more than 14 days apart. Today is fourteen days after the last wave of acceptances.

Any chance they are still going to send out decisions today? I don't know what time of day is likely to be too late.

Last thing I heard was that they sent them out at 6:00Pm EST. So we still have to wait a few hrs.

Well it'll probably happen soon. We're just about identical numbers-wise with the same major haha. I applied 3/1 to a bunch of schools and have still not heard back from them at all (ND, GWU, and Iowa).

3 updates is a long ways away WUSTL!
