Anyone have any idea of how they choose who to accept and who not to accept from the waitlist?
From what I've been told by the admission's office, they basically want to create as diverse a class as possible (while keeping high GPA and LSAT scores of course) and so theoretically if someone who is most like you doesn't accept their offer of admission, you may get in. Every time they look at the waitlist, they are looking at everyone who has accepted and reaccessing who they need. This is why they claim the waitlist is not truly "ranked." Although I'm not sure what really goes on in the decision making process, this is just my understanding of what I've been told.
I called the admissions office today and was told they have not even looked at the waitlist, too many admissions decision makers have been out of town. I was told, they will start looking at it in the next week or so. Good luck to everyone! Hopefully we will hear something positive soon! I realized it has been 8 months since I submitted my application. If I wasn't a patient person before I started the law application process, I will be by the end; starting to go crazy here
