Waitlist advice (T14)....

Postby 313D313 » Tue Apr 12, 2011 6:52 pm

i have been waitlisted at my top choice (T14 school). I want the school to know they are hands down my number one option and i will attend if admitted. I almost sure they allow you to come in and meet with an admissions counselor.

I would like to know what TLS thinks is a better option for this. a letter of continued interest or to meet with admissions counselor and update them on whats new and how much i want to attend....


BTW i am below both medians but my app is tailored toward the school and i visited numerous times.


help!!!

How many times did you visit already? And how many times did you sit down and talk to adcom folks?

First off, I think writing LOIC helps. If you live close to the school, then yes, visit may help. But if you have to travel across the country just to visit the school, then the cost may outweigh the benefit.

Disclaimer: I am an 0L, and is also on a waitlist at a T14 school, so take my advice with a grain of salt.
