HYS waitlists

Postby arism87 » Sat Nov 27, 2010 4:13 pm

Does anyone know how much HYS dips into their waitlists/held applicants? I'm not really sure where to look for that info.

And keep in mind many people think the number of WLs at HLS runs into the hundreds, so your chances are still slim even though they take significantly more than Y/S.

True, I'm just contemplating retaking the LSAT in February to improve my chances there since I'm already in with $$ at some of my favorite schools, don't feel like I have too much to lose

Sounds reasonable to me, and a higher score may help at HLS. Best of luck!

Sounds like a great plan to me. Best of luck on the Feb test.
