W&L Interview

W&L Interview
« on: January 25, 2007, 10:58:48 PM »
Did anyone with low scores apply to W&L and conduct an interview?  I have a 161 and 3.54 and I conducted an interview over the phone a few days ago.  The assistant director of admissions interviewed me and sounded very pleased.  I have a good resume she said everything was very good from my letters of rec to my PS and my GPA was just right, but my LSAT score was a little low so they were going to wait until they have a better idea as to the applicant pool, and if they needed anyone with my score I might get in.  LSN troubles me because it looks like W&L only accepted one person last year with my scores, and only after waitlisting.  Has anyone been told something similar.  Am I in or is it very likely that they won't dare touch my LSAT score?

Our information comes from the same sources yours does.  Last year 65/ 398 people with 3.5-3.75 and 160-164 got in.  Your chances are probably somewhere between what you stated in your question.  I would guess that you are far from in, but I don't think they would ask for an interview if there wasn't something they liked about you.  Don't bet the farm on it, but be extremely cautiously optomistic.

Wait, did they request the interview? Did you?

I agree with what was already said; they are interested in you but you are not in yet.

Good luck to the OP.
