@proximith: That is very true, it is nice of them to be proactive about it. Its good to have an idea of what is happening.

They're aiming for a class of 125-130. I can't imagine everyone deposited. And in that case, some of us deposited but are hoping for WL movement elsewhere. I know it puts people in a spot that are still on the waitlist but we can all thank adcomms for the slow process. Regardless, W&L has an honor policy so they are likely telling the truth about the amount of deposits.

For me, I'm so ready to give up on W&M. The perfect house just went on the market within 5 minutes of w&l. But since my SO is going to be taking on most of the responsibility
Pandally
12:27
I have to at least wait for W&M until may 15th.

12:51
@Pandally: I don’t blame you this process is very stressful. I think we are all craving definitive answers. I still have not deposited yet but likely will by the end of this week.

12:52
I also wish I knew other people going to law school. Lsdata is my only outlet to discuss it with others in similar situations.
Pandally
12:54
@SteelersReignSupreme: it really is...I guess May 15th will be my day of definitive but it still sucks haha.
Pandally
12:55
@SteelersReignSupreme: same for me. I can't really talk about it with anyone else. The attorneys are busy and its been so long for them. Family and friends don't get it and wish i would shut up about it. 😅 They just don't get it!
hey @proximith - just reach out every other week with a polite email restating that it is your top choice and you would be excited to move to lex. i believe you will get in! my fingers are crossed for u. hope to see u in lex in august!
14:59
Does anyone know if there are potential for scholarship offers if you've been accepted from the wait list?
15:00
It was mentioned at an open house as a possibility, rather than a hard no for waitlisted students, I'm just wondering if anyone has any info.
16:03
@NextLumpySpacePrincess: thank you for advice! i sent out a loci today and ill keep in contact with them! hope i see you in lexington too!
Thank you for the hope! I am kinda worried that they have no spots left tho ;(

@PaigeHawkins: i only got in on April 15 and got a big scholarship offer today!
