If I were to guess, living up to the Southern Californian tradition of taking things chill.

Will be withdrawing soon. Very tough to have to leave SoCal, but it is what it is.

Good luck to those still waiting!

Do you really care? I mean would you really be considering UCLA over the T14s?

I agree that they are slow, but in your situation I just don't see that it matters.

I guess that they really love that high GPA although all applicants with my numbers have either got accepted or waitlisted on lsn.

Being waitlisted with those numbers + URM status is... SHOCKING.

Hey everyone,

I was waitlisted back in January, my numbers are 165/3.6, double URM, trilingual, with a unique background, strong softs including a lot of community service and two stints in the legal arena, and what I consider to be a good PS. Clearly my numbers are well below their median, so I'm attributing my WL status to my softs.

Would bumping my LSAT score between 2 to 4 points this June have any effect on my chances of admission?

Yes. I specifically asked an adcom if retaking in June and getting a higher score might help with getting off the waitlist. The answer is yes, given that ur still waitlisted then and not rejected.

I noticed on LSN that someone changed their status for UCLA to WL,Accepted. Is UCLA already looking at the waitlist and taking people from it??? I know someone posted on this board a few days ago that they were waitlisted and then a week later got a call from Dean Schwartz saying the ad comm changed its mind.

Anyone know of any others being accepted off of the WL??

Word on the street is that we're all SOL. The class has been filled, and around this time last year, anything beyond 1&2nd week of April are rejections.
