@ZestyLaboredHippopotamus: yep! Just my thoughts and feelings. I will likely choose w&l over richmond if I dont get w&m.
Pandally
11:59
@ElderlyScreechingFalcon: mine did that a couple of times before the WL decision. I'm sure they're going to be doing more decisions this week
Oh ok, I thought I was gonna be caught up in the wave this weekend, but that’s reassuring at least
SteelersReignSupreme
13:43
@Pandally: I feel the same way about W&L versus Richmond. I am going to Duquesne ASD on Friday as I am currently choosing between their and Pitt. Hoping for W&L or W&M waitlist to pan out though. I visit W&M on the 18th.
SteelersReignSupreme
13:43
There*
SteelersReignSupreme
13:44
Also what is B-day admission
Pandally
13:49
@SteelersReignSupreme are you doing the student ambassador tour at W&M?
Pandally
13:49
Also b-day admission. Birthday admission! For my birthday.
13:52
yo do they update the portal at all when the send decisions
Pandally
14:24
@SonoSilv: my portal has been blank for the majority of the time. I was waitlisted. Email was how they sent the decision
15:46
cool cool thank you
SteelersReignSupreme
16:05
@Pandally: Happy Birthday! No I don't think so just a regular tour. What is the student ambassador tour?
Pandally
16:36
@SteelersReignSupreme: thanks! When i scheduled a tour before getting my answer - it was just a tour led by a 2L student to show me around the law school. I didn't get to sit in on any classes or anything.
Pandally
16:37
More added to the WL. Welcome y'all.
Pandally
12:36
Seriously... that email. Whyyyyyy
SteelersReignSupreme
12:46
@Pandally: My heart jumped out of my chest then crashed back down.
Pandally
12:47
@SteelersReignSupreme: right?! The fact that it was then gloating about their ranking kinda left a bad taste in my mouth too. I accepted the invitation for the panel anyways. Like come on...
SteelersReignSupreme
12:51
Yeah thats kinda messed up. Also accepted the invite though.😅
Pandally
12:51
@SteelersReignSupreme: kinda feels like stockholm syndrome in a way. Right? Hahaha
Got rejected. It hurts but oh well ig
Pandally
14:24
@ElderlyScreechingFalcon: sorry buddy. Good luck with the rest of your options. <3
@Pandally: thanks
Did I apply to schools out of my league
OutstandingImpartialKingfisher

Do you guys think it's too late to apply?
@HurriedNippyPirate: partially yes, partially no. You should've probably shifted your spread down about 10-15 spots. Not trying to be rude but you were never going to get into the t14. t20 would be a reach already. applying in the 25-55 range is probably your sweet spot
@OutstandingImpartialKingfisher: it is absolutely too late to apply. You might get accepted but very unlikely to get money, and whatever money you might get is almost certainly less than you could end up with(after negotiating and all that) if you wait and apply early next cycle.
Pandally
15:35
@WasabiPirates: do you know if W&M will always have scholarships available for need-based students or is that something that runs out as well? I'm just wondering if it's even possible if I will receive scholarships if I'm accepted off the waitlist.
SteelersReignSupreme
22:31
@Pandally: There website WL FAQ says it varies on case by case basis. Probably depends how big the scholly was the person had who turned their seat down.
SteelersReignSupreme
22:31
their* thats embarrassing
Pandally
22:50
@SteelersReignSupreme: trueeee! We'll see how they handle the waitlist now that their second secret deadline is passed. Lol
