One of my two numbers is alright. The other is lacking. I've been accepted to one T14, rejected from 2, waitlisted at 1, with 6 pending.

Has this happened to anyone else?


I'm in this group. Did everyone get a decision email today?

No, it's from GULC. NU decision should be coming this week; I've WE, so I'm guessing I'll be in. I'm not thinking I'd take NU at sticker over GULC + $, though. With that said, I'd kill for NYU or CLS (but the GPA ...)

I did get a letter from them today. They're waiting until students that have been accepted pay their deposits on Apr 1st. Since I applied pretty late, they've put me on a hold list...which I guess is in between the limbo of wait list and acceptance.

This is what I got. Is this a waitlist email or a "hold" email?


We appreciate your interest in attending Washington University School of Law. This year, we received applications from a record number of outstanding candidates and we are currently over-committed with our offers of admission. For that reason, a final decision regarding the status of your application has not yet been made, and the Admissions Committee has placed you on our wait list. However, the Committee was highly impressed with your credentials and is hoping to be able to extend you an offer of admission in the near future.

I understand that you need to start making plans for this fall. Unfortunately, at this time, it is difficult to determine exactly when and how many candidates will be admitted from our wait list. Admitted candidates have until April 1st to submit a deposit to hold their seats in the entering class. As soon as we know that we have seats available, we will immediately notify those additional applicants to whom we are able to offer admission.

If it?s any encouragement, we do anticipate taking candidates from the wait list this year. For your part, if you wish to remain on our wait list, please complete the "Wait List" form at http://law.wustl.edu/admissions/forms/waitlist.asp

We appreciate your patience and hope that you will continue to consider Washington University School of Law as your school of choice for your legal education.

Sincerely,

Mary Ann Clifford
Assistant Dean for Admissions

Hold list looks like this:

This year, due to a record number of outstanding candidates, we are currently over-committed with our offers of admission. For that reason, a final decision regarding the status of your application has not yet been made, and the Admissions Committee has placed your file on hold. The committee was highly impressed with your credentials and is hoping to be able to extend you an offer of admission in the very near future.

I understand that you need to start making plans for this fall. Unfortunately, at this time, it is difficult to determine exactly when and how many additional candidates we will be able to admit. Admitted candidates have until April 1st to submit a deposit to reserve their seats in the entering class. As soon as we know that we have seats available, we will immediately notify those additional applicants to whom we are able to offer admission.


I do anticipate admitting additional candidates. For your part, if you wish to remain under consideration for admission, please complete the online form (link redacted)

I was put on hold earlier today. 168/2.95.

Did anyone with an LSAT above median get a "waitlist" e-mail?

So how do holds usually work? Like, do they accept everyone off the hold list before they move to the waitlist folks?

i think being held in regular decision is a new thing. it makes sense to hold someone from early decision to regular decision so this is quite strange. guessing they'll pull from the hold first, when spots are open, then move on to the waitlist. but for all i know it could be the opposite.

Hold basically means they haven't made a decision yet. Most holds will probably end up on the waitlist.

bah! hopefully it means that we're on top of the waitlist if that happens?

and i mean our hold emails did say "I do anticipate admitting additional candidates." unlike the waitlist emails.

Yeah, some of us will get in for sure. But, there are a lot of holds, so I bet the majority find their way to the WL. Moral of the story is that we are now all enemies.

I think hold means, "We need to see whether more LSAT splitters or GPA splitters withdraw and which category we most need to boost or maintain our medians, and if you help the one we need, you'll probably be in within a week"

Lot's of schools do holds, most holds don't seem to get in (some do). I don't know about WUSTL though.

Well... kinda. It says

If it?s any encouragement, we do anticipate taking candidates from the wait list this year.

Which is totally less encouraging.
