Re: Class of 2021: we're basically 1.5Ls now

Hey Y'all! Do we think most of the big law firms have made decisions on initial interviews at this point?

The person on the phone said that the admissions committee was meeting this afternoon to discuss WL candidates, so they may be done for today at least. I'm not sure how long those discussions will take before they release some decisions.
Thanks, appreciate the update =)

Re: GULC Waitlist (Class of 2021)

did anyone not get the WL update email last week about the lack of merit aid?

I also got the email from last week asking if we'd definitely come to Georgetown and that they don't have merit aid. Thank you fo...

Just got a feeler call. I guess that’s what you call it anyway lol. A lady asked a couple of questions about whether I was still interested. On the SPW, hoping it’s a good sign.🙃
Do you mind telling us the area code so we know what to look for?

Re: WUSTL Students and Grads Taking Questions

Can anyone speak to the social life at WUSTL? Does the school host events for students to get to know each other? Do most people have lives/SO's outside of the law school, or is there a strong community of students? Do students still go out?

Re: T14 at sticker vs. WUSTL for free

You aren’t totally barred from firms like Susman, KVN, Williams & Connolly, etc. But “not totally barred” means your ranking basically needs to be in the single digits. If you’re top 1% or maybe top 10 students in the class you should be able to get an interview—assuming the person who sees your re...
