So I'm going to apologize for freaking out. Sorry!

My LSAC account has one email address tied to it - my "professional" email address - while my life has another email address tied to it - my "silly-named" email address. Gmail is set to forward all mail at the "professional" address to the "personal" address - but it decided not to this time. Why? God only knows.

So, either way, I've also been "[invited] to continue to wait." Woot!

PS I hate Gmail.

so how do we motivate some of these people to withdraw from their commitment at GW?

Sent on 7/16:

"Good afternoon. I write with my weekly wait list update.

We did not make any offers of admission to wait listed candidates this week. We continute to wait to see if any of those who have committed to attend GW Law withdraw.

If we are able to offer you admission, we will contact you by e-mail and/or by phone.

I will be in touch with another update by the end of next week.

Have a good weekend.

Anne"

she told the rest of us to move on. I presume the earlier recipients are the preferred. see below:


"
I write with a wait list update. I am sorry you did not hear from me last Friday. Seeing no withdrawals among those who have committed to GW Law last week, I decided to wait to see if Monday brought any changes before writing to you.

At this point, I think it is very unlikely that we will be able to make many -- if any -- offers of admission to wait-listed candidates. I assume that you have a back-up plan and are holding a seat at another law school. Unfortunately, I think it is time for you to move forward on that plan.

Although we will continue to keep you on our wait list, I do not want to give you false hope.

Thank you for your patience throughout this process. I will be in touch again next week.

That's odd that they only told some people that they probably won't be able to make offers of admission to any waitlisted candidate.
