I guess something in my application sucked but I THOUGHT my grades were pretty strong - A,A,A-,A-,B... I don't know what else they were looking for... ANd if a personalized letter from a state senator isn't enough, then what is? Here's to hoping for another school...

:(

Top 10%, law review at a T50 school...

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE :) !!!!!!!

Is being waitlisted at GULC really realistic at all? Dont you miss out on bidding for OCI?

+1

Hope they're lying a little bit about hoping to get back to you by "late August."
Dear EA admits: hurry up and accept your spots at HYS and free up the spaces for those of us who have GULC as a first choice.....

I feel like the Civil War... an entire line of us just got chopped down. O well. Best of luck to everyone, and congratulations to those who have been accepted and not rejected

Good luck everyone.

I agree... I thought I had a really good shot at Georgetown and now I am all nervous about the rest of my apps. Georgetown was the lowest school on my list...

I have heard that GULC will reject based off of 1 grammatical error. Do you think this explains why 1 at Top 50 + law review would not get in....(no offense, but your in a good position to get in else where).

So they have a pile of "acceptables" and they put them on the waitlist if the paper printed out funny or something?

GULC takes comma usage very seriously. Did you use the Oxford comma? If you did it may have cost you another month of waiting.

If using the Oxford comma is wrong, I don't want to be right!

Based on previous years, does the waitlist get movement before late august? Because that's ridiculous.

Can we get waitlist stats?

TT in 60s - Top 10%

TT in 60s - Top 10%



There was some movement in mid-July I believe. This list compiled earlier is probably a good starting point:

6/25/12 Status Updates:
TTTT, 4.067 GPA (Mce252)
Low tt, top 5 people, (lyonsoccer87)
Lower tt, top 1.4% (terpfan12)
TT, top 9% (TTransfer)
Lower T1, top 1/3 to 1/4 (lawschoolz67)
Lower TT, 3.3 gpa (lawst)
TT (upper) top 9% (opx)
TTTT, top 1% (tlink)
TTTT, 3/125, 3.7 GPA, app under review (laziness perse)
t30, Top 20% (deankrazjic)
50ish, expected #1 (mileslibertatis)



Edited to include only waitlists from previous list. Please add your stats if you've been waitlisted and are not included above (or remove someone who received a ding). Quote the whole list and add your information to keep it consolidated.
