Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: WUSTL Jan 25th ASD.... Roll call?

Question:  I finally received my WUSTL acceptance letter in the mail.  Does everyone's letter mention that they are being considered for one of the Scholars in Law Awards?

It looks like most of the admits to this point have received substantial scholarships.  I posted my approximation of the trend in one of these WUSTL threads a few days ago, if you are curious where you might fit.

But do the letters explicitly state that they are being considered for one of the Scholars in Law Awards?


Mine did, and I didn't get a scholarship. Apparently everyone is reviewed for a Scholar in Law award. At least that's what the website says.

Did you not receive a scholarship at all or just yet?  Anyone else?

I was accepted in November and didn't get anything. I called the other day and they said that the scholarship committee would be meeting again soon to send some more out.

I am so excited!  Finally got an email confirming that I was accepted and telling me that a binder is to come.  Now I can finally get on the accepted students site!  Yay!  They really want me.  I can't decide on the Feb or Mar ASD though.

I'm going to the Feb. one--plane tickets are cheaper then. Hopefully I will see you there!

Where should I go next fall? / Re: WUSTL/EMORY DECISIONS: Where are THEY!?

FB, regarding the lack of a scholarship offer, what are your stats? 
I have >170, <3.0. I didn't think that I would have the opportunity for any scholarships a month ago, but with WashU throwing money around like it's going out of style, my hopes went up a bit.

Thanks for the info.  I am retaking the LSAT this weekend and am hoping to receive an acceptance and some money from WUSTL as a result.  It seems practically every LSN account that has been updated in the last few weeks that has also been accepted has a nice scholarship attached.  I was curious if it was done solely by numbers or if there were other considerations.  I guess there are only two <3.0 GPA with scholarships, but their LSATs are >= 174.  Hopefully they throw some money at you as the cycle progresses.

Good luck on the LSAT! Hopefully it will turn into something good.

Off the top of my head:

Best: Great facilities, lots of commitment to make the school top notch (i.e., they don't mind spending money on salaries, staff, scholarships, etc.), VERY laid back student body, relatively strong national placement compared to lower ranked schools.

Worst: Career services not proactive in helping those who don't get jobs out of OCI (it's still relatively to get a job but the CSO office isn't very helpful), relatively weak national placement compared to higher ranked schools especially in the West and Southeast, St. Louis legal community not too supportive of the school (they almost consider the students carpetbaggers and prefer SLU and Mizzou students for the most part).

I've heard that about the St. Louis community--kind of disappointing, but understandable all the same.

If you don't mind, what did you study? How were the professors in that area?

We have to remember, patience is a virtue!

A virtue I am sorely lacking in.

I actually talked to someone there this week about scholarships, and she mentioned that some more offers might come out this week. That's probably why I'm so anxious.

That, and people with my numbers have been getting 90K in scholarships...

Please Please Please tell me you are talking about WashU

Yep. They are being very generous with their scholarships this year.

Well if you have family there then I think you should do alright if you do some legwork (i.e., mass mail).

I haven't really seen much of a difference in perception. All of the attorneys I knew prior to entering law school all knew that it was a very good school and encouraged me to go and that continued when I was interviewing. I think I came into the fold too late to experience the difference in perception.

What I did find interesting was that the older WashU alum that I interviewed with were all a little bitter that they didn't get to take advantage of the ranking and facilities when they were in school. I don't necessarily think it was a negative but almost uniformly came up in the interview.

That is pretty interesting about the older alumni. The new building looks really nice--can't wait to see it in a few weeks. What are some of the best and worst things about the school? I kind of applied on a whim, but not it's looking more and more like I will end up there.
