Nope, unfortunately. I submitted about a week and a half ago and mine still just says "Application Complete". I know they sent an email that says they start looking at most applications in late October/early November. Good luck!

I just got an email that I'm under review!! Let the anxiety and stress begin! Unfortunately it said it will take 2-3 weeks from now for a decision.

W&L is really fast about decision and scholarship. Mine was under review yesterday. Do you apply any other schools?

Good to know - have you heard back yet!? I've applied to about 8-10 others and need to submit apps for a few more.

W&L just updated their website which was easy to tracked up their employment and ranking. The employment of 2015 graduates was outstanding. I just want to hear from them soon.

Went under review on 10/11. The email said to expect a decision in 2-3 weeks from that day, so I'm hoping to hear back soon.

In today via email and status checker! Anyone else notice a scholarship amount posted at the bottom of the status checker? Might be a dumb question but do we know if that amount is for all three years total? I'm assuming the letter I'll receive will answer these questions, but I'm just curious if anyone knows. Thanks!

Great question haha... I just noticed that. Hopefully annual but I don't want to assume!

I would assume it is because my LSAT is way past their 75th and I'm showing 37,500. That'd be super low as a three year offer, especially given my $$$ at WUSTL.

Same on bottom of mine. Thanks for giving heads up - I would have never seen it at the bottom.

Usually the $$$ on status checker indicates the annual amount.

I emailed the office of admissions. It's an annual amount :)
