Waitlisted via snailmail.

It was DEFINITELY a reach school, so I am surprised even with a WL.

Today. I was informed of acceptance via email last Friday. Applied 1/1, complete 1/4. Pretty surprised considering my numbers.

You have a good shot! Your LSAT hits the median, and a couple of non-URMs with similar and lower GPAs got in last cycle.

It looks like you are right. Probably from the plethora of applicants last year. I doubt they can keep it at a 167 this year.

FWIW SrLaw I wrote a Why ND then sent an LOCI at 3 months complete... I did add some new employment info (up for a promo) but mainly reiterated my interest in the school. I don't think it could hurt you. The woman was very friendly, she even wished me good luck at work :)

My numbers are 167/3.4, I am not a "URM" (AA/NA etc.) but I did write a diversity statement. I did the Why "ND."

My LSAT is lower than yours, but I'm hoping they throw some love at me for being Catholic and NA.

I think you should really worry if you didn't do the optional essay... which I didn't because I got lazy...

that being said, I got WL'ed with the following
167, 3.78
finishing MS degree, 2 yr work experience

I honestly think it was not doing the Why ND essay (yes, I know, I'm and idiot), which I plan to include when I follow up with a LOCI.

Hopefully you guys will get good news soon!

Sorry to hear about the recent WLs and good luck to those waiting! They're really slow. I finally heard from them 4 months, to the day, after submission (about 14-15 weeks after going complete).
