we're number twins, i submitted late dec (like around christmas so it might as well be a janaury submit because the admissions office would all be on vacation) i'm on 5 waitlists as well
don't think cls ever uses their reserve
write strong why mich/uva and send it to them as loci's if you haven't already written those essays in the initial application (i'm assuming not because you had late apps)
duke gulc don't know.
nyu I was pending until yesterday when I got in after sending loci the night before (literally)
in conclusion: write strong targeted loci to these schools discussing their curriculum and your academic interests. as low gpa splitters i think they want to make sure we're serious about school, since our low gpa is telling them the story that we're NOT serious
So did NYU get your LOCI before they accepted you or did you send your letter via snail mail? I'd love to be your classmate this fall.
Also, I want to practice patent law and am registered to take the patent bar, but have not actually taken it yet. Is it even worth letting schools know this before I actually pass the exam?
electronic confirmation that it was on their files at 9am, letter sent out at 12. so i'm thinking it was definitely read (pretty easy for adcoms to read a 1page loci quickly)
not sure about the patent law thing, but if a certain school has a strong program for that, definitely integrate it into the essay
