Wait-list prompts/responses

Postby nmms » Tue Apr 10, 2012 2:10 pm

recently wait listed at a law school and given option to write two prompts to better chances of obtaining acceptance- prompts include biggest academic difficulty and how you have dealt with them/how to choose which law school will attend if offered various acceptances.

any ideas what admission committees look for/what would be an appropriate answer

In the first case, they want to see if you can outperform your UG track record (they think youre a weak candidate) and in the second case they want to see that if they pull you off the waitlist, that you'll definately attend
