Top 10% after 1L is complete grades on given a good-faith effort at the writing competition.
The rest get in purely based on the writing competition, ~33% of the class does one of the three journals, I believe.


Sorry, your sentence is phrased oddly and I'm confused. Top 10% are automatically on LR if they give a good faith effort at the competition? Am I understanding that correctly?

Yea, that's right. Sorry about the confusion, it made sense to me in my head.

top10% grade-on (but have to do the writing competition like everyone else)

Just paid the deposit. I guess it isn't quite the same since it is refundable through May, but I did get excited when they sent me the "Welcome to the Class of 2013" confirmation email. :D

Deposited as well, but may withdraw depending on final aid offer.

by final aid offer do you mean scholly or need based financial aid? i think need based aid is just loans. also did they give you a time frame for when you should expect it?

ugh i just built a model trying to figure out how much more it would cost me to go, and it is SOOOO much money. It has me seriously spooked. Im at a point where law school feels like a crazy decision, oh what a difference 24 hours makes. Yesterday the only thing i had against the school was an imaginary blond bimbo

Called admissions yesterday and they said scholarship money was not dependent on when you got in and just because you haven't heard yet doesn't mean your not getting money. Also they reassured me that everyone would hear by tomorrow.

I wonder if that means that decisions are coming out this evening (because they usually do it on Tuesdays/Thursdays) or tomorrow because it's the last day of the month (giving them the most time available while still keeping their promise). Cmon WUSTL!

so...if they are still planning on maybe giving money, then that means that people who haven't heard yet aren't ALL rejections/WL...

i think that means that just because you haven't heard that you're getting scholarship money yet doesn't mean you aren't, not that if you haven't heard if you're in yet you're getting scholarship money. does that make sense? with that said, i'd still imagine that some of the people who haven't gotten in yet will be getting some scholarship money. come on webster society!

I like this. It implies more acceptances AND more scholarships. Hopefully it's not just admissions-office runaround.

from talking to them today...i think there will be decisions coming out for sure today. But the lady also mentioned that not all decisions will come out by the end of the month so some people will hear in April.

What kind of people will hear in April? Were there super late applications that won't be decided on until then?

Thanks. I'm sick of it, too, and sick of posting about it. WUSTL, you could make all my dreams come true! Forget the scholarship money, just give me an acceptance and an autographed Pujols bat.

i'm also wondering what makes itsmytime10 so certain decisions are coming out today? i mean, i would welcome that (especially if mine is included and it's favorable), but just curious.
