Also according to Richmond I'm on their "priority waitlist" which apparently means my acceptance is very likely they just had to many qualified applicants. If anyone has any experience with this, is there a difference between the priority waitlist and the regular one in regards to receiving scholly money or would I be paying sticker? Also is there a chance W+L gives me money if I get in off the waitlist(I know it's probably no, but I'm asking just in case)
I mean there's a chance
, but your numbers aren't scholly type numbers unfortunately. The most likely people to get money off a waitlist with money are YP people, not borderline applicants
Are you talking W+L,Richmond or both? I don't think I'm anymore borderline at Richmond than I was at UCONN or Dozo. Does being soft URM help with the waitlist? Sorry for asking so many questions, I just have so many variables I'm considering in my decision.
I'm was talking both, but Im not familiar with those schools specifically. To me, a waitlist is a waitlist no matter what word they put in front of it.
IME waitlists are more numbers driven than the normal cycle. Schools pull from the waitlist specific things they need. If more low GPA applicants deposited than they were expecting, they would likely pull high GPA people from the waitlist. Same with LSAT.
I'm not sure about URM. Maybe, but from my understanding softs are more of a factor before the waitlist. Once again, it's hard to be definitive because every school is different.
Richmond and W&L have very small class sizes so they have to more tightly control who they accept in order to get the class profile they want, whereas Cardozo can be less meticulous with its large class. That could explain the holding pattern & waitlists.
