I got WL

This is odd to me, being that people with worse numbers than me on both ends (LSAT/GPA) were accepted and I wasn't.


Sorry to hear that. Tech must have some odd admission standards, as I thought for sure I wouldn't get in and sure enough I heard back a 'yes' in 4 days after it went complete. They seem really random. Do you think you'll stay on the waitlist?


yes, I am keeping my options open at this point. This includes the option of taking a year off and re-taking the LSAT

Waitlisted 4/28, but I got a call from Admissions that same day offering me a spot. Weird...

Anyway, I'm turning them down, hopefully one of yall will get that spot :)

Complete 3/15. I got a phone call asking if I'd made any commitments on the 4/28 I was offered a spot contingent on verbal commitment. I think I was in the twilight zone between accepted and waiting list.

I know that Tech does not use an LSAT/GPA index in evaluating applications, so there is more of a holistic approach to the application review process. This could be advantageous for some, since it might allow writing quality, LORs, or something special about an applicant shine through before an application is tossed in a "deny" pile. So, if your numbers were below the median, there must have been something they viewed as pretty impressive about you. I'd say that's pretty cool - congrats.
