How long after going complete do you usually hear about getting an interview?

I never got a complete email - submitted a week ago and I got an interview email a few minutes ago.

Also... is it a bad sign if they're only offering a 15-min phone interview? I know my stats aren't great but sheesh, the email I received is hella different than the one my friend got.

ahh ok thanks, I wasn't sure how WUSTL's process worked.

And I have no idea :( I would say maybe it's not a bad thing but I'm not sure. Stay positive (:

Would your mind sharing your stats? I submitted at the beginning of October and haven’t heard a word

I wouldn’t worry. Even my video interview only lasted about that long and everything worked out fine. Maybe they’re just trying to speed up the process with phone interviews as they get busier!

I received a 20 minute general interview offer but wish mine was just phone. I am so nervous! I really love the school.

Does getting an interview mean chances are high of an acceptance?

I think they try to interview everyone. Obviously, a well done interview can't hurt though!

Checking in. Below both 25%. Reach for me but I thought I would throw my hat in the ring.

As an additional data point, I submitted 12/22 and got an interview request 12/26. I'm a splitter though.

Applied in mid-October and haven't heard anything, been stuck at this:

Your application has been received by the Admissions Office of Washington University School of Law. It may take the Admissions Office a few weeks to process your application and for the checkboxes below to be filled.


Is there a complete note after this or is it just this until interview request?

Even after my interview, my status never went complete.

That's it. I've been admitted and it still hasn't changed.

Got my scholarship offer of $96K (32 per year). Does anyone know if WUSTL is open to play ball in terms of negotiation and if so, how much has been received in additional awards? I have better offers but at lower ranking schools (W&L, Georgia, William & Mary), so I'd love to go to WUSTL but it's just a little too expensive at the moment.Thanks all!

When did you get admitted? I got admitted 22DEC17 and haven’t heard back on scholarships. I’m wondering when I can expect to hear or is it all just reading tea leaves?

I got in on 12/29 and got the scholarship offer 1/4. When I did my Skype interview the admissions counselor said that once you get in your file goes to the scholarship committee who makes a decision from there, so it may just be that they make decisions on some files faster than others. Sorry I can't be of more help! Hope you get a great award!
