Anyone contacted the admissions office to find out when the next round of admissions will go out? I'm disappointed I didn't hear on Friday, but with my low UGPA I can't say I'm surprised.

Were most of the admissions this round people who applied ED or whose numbers were high enough for administrative admit? How many people out there went from Committee Review to Accepted?

Yes, they started this year. There was a check box on the application, but no mention on their website, etc. Even though they provided the option, I'm not sure they truly did ED this year simply because so many people didn't realize it was available. Anyone out there able to confirm/deny this?

I'm pretty sure it was, and from my conversation with Melanie Nutt it sounded like you could kiss most of your chances at $$$ goodbye. I would definitely need some $$$ to go to Wake, so no ED for me.

why would ED keep someone from scholarship money? bc they assume they don't have to actively recruit you/lure you in?

I applied and was accepted ED but no $ almost definitely means I won't go..

Um... if you were accepted ED, you HAVE to go there.

Yeah, I don't know anything about Wake's ED program, but ED programs in general are typically binding. If you're not 100% sure, I would just call the admissions office.

I'm in at Wake, but I'm not sure if I want to attend or not. I think a lot of it will come down to scholarship offers.

Early Decision Program

The Early Decision process is appropriate mostly for applicants who have made the decision that WFU is their first choice of law schools. These candidates do not plan to compare financial aid offers when making a decision where to matriculate. Applications must be completed and submitted no later than November 30, 2009. This means that all documents including 2 letters of recommendation and your transcripts have been submitted to LSAC's Credential Assembly Service. Early decision candidates will know their status no later than January 8, 2010.

If admitted to Wake Law as an Early Decision candidate, you will be required to commit to Wake Forest Law in writing on or before February 1, withdrawing all applications to other law schools and refraining from the submission of any applications after that date. A $300 deposit must be received by February 1, 2010 in order to confirm your commitment. A financial aid award may be included in your initial offer.

Some early decision candidates may be held for later review in the regular admission cycle. We will let you know a decision on or before April 1.

I read it as binding ED, though it is a little vague.

I would most definitely call the admissions office on Monday to check.

Agreed. Sounds pretty binding.

Clarification, Mrs. Nutt told me (at least twice) that ED acceptance means you most certainly get $$. I dunno if it's full ride or not, but you get at least something.

Just wanted to congratulate everyone who received good news last week, and tell everyone else who is waiting to hang in there! I'm a 2L at Wake, and it seems like just yesterday I was living through the miserable-ness that is the law school admissions process. If anyone has any questions about the process, or the school and its programs, let me know!

Sounds to me like Notre Dames ED, you commit in February and withdraw all apps if you accept their offer, or you withdraw your acceptance at Wake and go about your business.

I wished I had applied ED, I can't wait to know if I will be able to afford Wake. I could also free my spot at other schools.

I don't think ED applicants have heard about schollys yet either. Hopefully, by saying that they will begin to award money in January, this means the beginning of January. Unfortunately, I doubt this will be the case. Last year (from looking at LSN and TLS) it seems like the first round went out somewhere around Dec 29th.

Someone should call and inquire as to when they are shooting for this year.

When is everyone thinking about attending an ASW? I would be interested in splitting the cost of a hotel room if anyone is interested (female preferred).

Maybe I am reading this stuff wrong but I thought what were listed on the admitted students page were just one day events, not weekends. Did you find info on a weekend somewhere else?

Ooops. I meant ASD, not ASW. Thanks for catching that.

Hi, I would greatly appreciate it if any of you who visit Wake Forest, posts a comment on the faculty, the facilities, the students or any other info. I am in Mexico and can't visit any schools.

Thanks and Happy New Year to all the fellow Wake Forest hopefuls.
