The verdict is you don't love ND as much as you claimed to in the ND thread. :wink: My vote would go for whichever is cheaper or if you have an affinity or personal reason for one over the other.

Do we know when WUSTL typically sends out scholarship offers?

I think someone in this thread asked the admissions department and was told mid-to-late February for this cycle.

URM would be Under Represented Minority - aka groups who fit certain affirmative action/diversity quotas and thus receive a bump in they're chances of being admitted.

I am pretty excited! Def. one of my top choices outside the T14. I don't care about Fordham though and really don't see why everyone gets excited about being admitted to Fordham like its HYS....to each his own I guess :)

BTW, I am intl and have never in my life been to the midwest, but there is something that really excites me about WUSTL.

[quote="jks289"]Does everyone get the Scholars in Law mention? Any idea when they will be deciding on merit aid?[/quote]

According to people's experience here, no, not everyone gets the Scholars in Law mention.

Has anyone else from early Jan gotten an update today....accepts?


I submitted 1/5, was complete 1/7, and then changed to complete 1/29. Haven't heard anything else.

So I have been complete since October, re-complete in Dec., just re-submitted my transcript. I still have not heard a yea, nea, or delay. I have a 169/3.45. Anyone in the same boat?

I heard OCI was slightly less miserable at WUSTL than ND this year fwiw.

South Bend sucks.

St. Louis isn't much better but forest park is awesome and there are plenty of young people and bars (if you're into that thing).

Is there a dramatic difference in cost btwn the two? If not, go with where you're more comfortable. I say wustl ftmfw.
