I wore dress pants, nice sweater and ballet shoes. That tended to be the norm for girls (although one did show up in sweats) and the guys wore khakis/polos or suits.

Does anyone know how they are rejecting people? Is it via e-mail similar to their acceptances?

if you are a guy, dont wear a suit - too dressy for what is a somewhat casual day. i just wore khahis and a sweater.

I wore jeans and a tee-shirt, but I wasn't actually expecting anyone to be there since they canceled it.

Whoops.

Any others waiting for scholarships just get an email from WF and immediately think MONEY! :mrgreen: and then open the email and think CRAP :x after you found out its just another email promoting the school. I know, I know - they arent redistributing money till after the initial April 1 deadline, but man, they got me good. :|

At least I'd rather be offered NO money than be offered $90k only to have it taken away within three minutes. :)

Not going to lie - that email about the 30k/year stung for a bit. The one today though was just sneaky.

Heh, received the promotional email as well. I quickly looked at it and I was like, "Bah, nothing interesting here... or IS there?" and I quickly started scanning for a dollar amount.

exactly. the first thing I scan for are numbers. if i dont see #s i read the email later. if i do, then i read the email immediately. the sucky emails are the ones with #s but are about scholarships you can apply for and the potential amount you can get.

Do people generally agree that for us late admits, if we are going to get an offer, it will come next Friday or that weekend?

It says "Wake Forest School Of Law Scholarship Award" as the email title, so they don't try and be sneaky about it.
