There has been some mention of a "wailist" in individual threads, but I was hoping to hear about your guys' experience with being on hold/waitlist.

I do not yet have an offer. Obviously being on a waitlist is better than a ding, but it is hard to gauge my chances, especially ITE. I am hoping this law firm recruited students with more offers than me and that they decline. :lol:

I'm definitely on a waitlist for one firm, and I'm pretty sure I'm now on the waitlist for another. :roll:

Not sure, but given how fast my dings have been I would guess on some kind of wait. This is truly torture for me and other people who have no offers but some hope left, it's so hard to get this out of my head ughhhhhh.

I am on a WL as well with a NYC firm. I have heard that specifically in this economy firms are very cautious not to over extend themselves. This means that you might be on the WL for awhile but that there may be some decent movement in it eventually

I had a firm specifically tell me that I'm on a waitlist. I don't think I will be able to wait much longer though.
