I'm on it too. Not sure how great my chances are, but here's to hoping.

I have! Yesterday. I sent an email with the LOCI and a letter of rec as attachments. I offered to send them hard copies of the material. Pinkney promptly responded and said that electronic copies were sufficient. She's very formal, that lady. I guess she just wants to appear objective all the time? Thanks for starting this thread!

That can't be true. By my calculations, looking at last years applicant numbers, plus about 20% more due to the increase in apps, there weren't even 5000 applications to UC Davis Law.

Good luck to the WL people. I've withdrawn to make some room. I have to imagine it'll be a while, though, before they go to the list. Since they are still working through regular admits, some it seems with decent stats.

I'll be withdrawing from the waitlist. Davis gave me a fee waiver which is why I applied. I have no real desire to work in California considering that state's budget crisis. Good luck to the rest of you, hopefully it helps someone.

He/she probably got the 5,000 number from my mention of the undergraduate's wait-list numbers back in April. They were published in a newspaper. I'm expecting that the law school wait-list figures aren't going to be as high, but still high enough to take a while to go through.

Hey all, I was waitlisted too. Anyone have any advice on writing a letter of continued interest? i noticed someone said they emailed it? would it be better to submit a hard copy?

Mail hard copies.

One helpful LOCI guide I've used:

http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27169

Briefly skim the first few posts, then sift through the other pages for samples.

I emailed mine since Davis said they were going completely electronic with the application process. With that said, I haven't received any acknowledgement of the LOCI. Has anyone else received an acknowledgement after sending an LOCI in?

yes i got an acknowledgement. i'm always surprised how quickly Davis replies to all my emails (fastest among all for me), yet they have one of the more slower overall application processes. who would have thought.

I hope I'm not too late.

DO NOT MAIL HARD COPIES

When I sent my LOCI, I mentioned in the body of my email that hard copies were to follow. Almost immediately after sending, Pinkney replied and said to not send hard copies as they do not have a system for keeping those copies and everything was electronic. So there ya go. Hope this helps. :)

FWIW, I e-mailed a LOCI and an additional LOR from my employer and didn't receive a reply for a few days. I followed up with a phone call and found out that my LOCI and LOR were received.
