The nice lady I talked to said I will receive an email about the processing time when my status is updated. However, I have not received anything yet, despite the fact my online status says comeplete now. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the email says. It does not feel right to call admission again and ask them. Thanks!


My status checker says complete as well, but no email here either.

Just got the complete email. I had called last week and she changed the status to complete for me while I was on the phone - that was 11/12.

I just got the "complete" email a bit ago.

The FAFSA part scared me for a second, about the application not being considered.

I got my acceptance letter on Tuesday :D Apparently, it took almost two weeks to get to my house because they sent it to the wrong state first...? Good job, W&L! haha. No clue if I'll end up going to W&L (it's waaaay out of my price range), but this is my first acceptance so I'm super pumped.

Did your status checker say "Decision Rendered"? Or did you just get the acceptance letter in the mail?

Anyone check this out with all the comments? Fascinating: http://leiterlawschool.typepad.com/leit ... -lees.html I also had no idea W&L was almost always ranked higher than W&M until recently. I believe W&L's highest ranking was around 18 in 2003 or so!

Great link. Interesting to see all the opinions and the Dean weigh in.

Haha, thanks. I know I'm probably freaking out over nothing (hopefully... :shock:) and I'm in at W&M so that's kinda calming me down a little... but just a little...

Anyone know average turnaround time? I'm a 169/3.4 so I thought it would be a little faster than this... (there's nothing quite like applying to law school to bring out the insecurities in all of us :P)

I can tell you that my turnaround was pretty quick. You should be hearing back soon. On another note, do you have a preference for W&L or W&M?
