i wonder if scholarship offers will be solely extended in emails, or if the admissions packet would have the offer as well...

Has anyone else had interviews, yet? Mine went pretty well, and my interviewer had a lot of good info on the local job market and was really open about the experiences they've had. Also, my status has already updated, so they're really fast at getting everything turned around!

Please don't waitlist me, GWU!

Pretty much what has been said on TLS about the Florida market and its love of ties. Unless you get stellar grades from a top school, it's going to come down to who you know, how well you network, and luck. There was more detail than that, but for discretion's sake people can PM me for more details if they want, but it wasn't anything too groundbreaking. It was just good to hear the perspective of someone who's actually in it.

I had an interview last monday, and my experience seems to have been pretty similar to yours. And my status checker experienced some movement, but its still only complete as of 1/18

This is from the admitted students page:
Every admitted student will automatically be considered for Law School merit scholarships. These awards are made on the basis of information contained in the admission file; no additional information is required, though you are welcome to send any additional information that you wish. The Law School begins awarding merit scholarships in late January, via email. The Admissions Office will continue make merit awards every few weeks until all merit funds are exhausted.

Interesting. If I decide to go, I can at least negotiate it up to $90K then, since we have very similar numbers.

Applied 12/12, Accepted 12/17- but from what I have heard from other GW applicants in DC, isn't uncommon if numbers are strong.

Waiting for scholarship info.....Looks like I am going to be religiously refreshing my inbox until I *hopefully* get that email! Congrats to everyone who received one today.
