Huh? A few? One is a few?
It's a self selective site. Just as when you were offered your position there was at least one other person who was offered a spot that did not report it on LSN that I know of.
Therefore, more than one, less than many or most, means a few.
You are completely denying the possibility of only one person being offered? Marquette doesn't have a relatively big FT 1L class size, so why is that impossible?
I'm not making a complete denial of the possiblity, however LSN is a self selective, and therefore unrepresentative sample. Marquette more than likely received at least 2000 applications this year and of those only around 150 to 200 applicants chose to participate on LSN. In essence 10% of all applicants give or take a few percentage points.
Statistically the amount of occurrences of acceptance, denial, and waitilist are greater in actuality than those recognized on LSN (your acceptance being a perfect example). Hence my belief that perhaps there was more than a single offer of acceptance off the waitlist, thus my inquiry.
However, if you have some tangible inside information to the contrary I'm all ears.
