Fingers crossed for you @LawyerLarry! The As are coming.
I applied in NOV and still haven't heard anything
ya'll this is getting silly
@LawyerLarry: just got the A!
congrats!! @MrBagel
Anyone have insight about release dates for scholarship info?
the wait is killing meee
how long does it usually take from UR to decision
@WildOliphant: I believe the app said they'd have the first round of scholarship info out by 3/24.
Application status changed to In Review at some point this week (according to LawHub) - but I never received a status checker email from UW to setup my account to see my status? Anyone have any recommendations as to what I should do?
do folks know if you also receive a rejection email if you applied to Gates? The webpage said they would get back to people today but it looks like interview weekend invites might have already been sent out based on what I've seen on reddit
I am wondering the same thing
wait what post are you looking at bc I'm only seeing the one from 2022
[] SteadfastHumanRebel
They might be looking at the undergrad version of the Gates Scholarship.
no! someone posted a poll in the reddit saying they were interviewing next week
also folks are saying they got emails inviting them to interview last week in the UW admitted students discord
ooo rip
can you share the admitted students discord btw
here's the reddit post!
sounds like a lot of people got rejection emails as well so I think folks who haven't heard yet may have been back up invites or something in case people declined haha
^discord link!
thank you!
here's to hoping but oof
[] SteadfastHumanRebel
@SwampyShrekStan: My bad! Thanks for the correction. Was unaware emails had already gone out
