Dean Pless,

I was waitlisted today. When would it be appropriate to send in an additional document explaining my continued interest? Or should I just be patient and practice my stealth mode? I know you said you would keep us updated, but I want to insure that my intentions are known. For the record I have already filled out the "survey."

P.S. I know this has been said, but thank you so much for talking to us on TLS!

Sending in a LOCI is always ok, but isn't required.

Dean Pless,
Thank you for the BEST graduation present ever!! (I graduate tomorrow). Also, my dad is clostraphobic, and said this is the ONLY thing that could get him on an airplane-- to visit with me in the Spring. Dean Pless: Curing clostraphobia one ecstatic Barbie acceptance at a time :D

The Open House dates are February 25 and April 1. The email today had the wrong dates in it, sorry about that.

Dean Pless,

I'm patiently waiting until Friday, I promise. Are scholarship offers (if applicable) given in the acceptance email (also if applicable)?

Thank you!

Oh MAN heart stopping! Especially since today is my birthday and I have this secret hope of my first admissions decision coming today, from any or all schools to which I've applied... Ah well! It's a nice gesture, and I'm sure they're getting a little chuckle out of it over in IL :D

Sorry. We just thought it would be nice to send out a holiday email. For the record, my decision emails have the subject line of University of Illinois College of Law no matter what the decision is.

It was nice, thanks... but I think you gave a few hundred people a collective heart attack with the "JOIN THE CLASS OF 2014 FACEBOOK PAGE!" part. :lol:

We're all just anxious little law school applicants that tend to forget about any/everything (including the holidays) whenever emails or out-of-state phone calls arrive... :)

I was more confused than anything, since Dean Pless already told us the next decisions will be Friday!

At least you TLSers should have known-- the exact dates your decisions are coming out have been provided by Dean Pless(and that they are always on a Friday)! I thought it was nice :)
