May 1st. But they don't have a monetary deposit and I don't think it's legally binding in any way, just a show of good faith

Because they call him the Hippononymous
Flows that glow like phosphorous
Poppin' off the top of this esophagus, rockin' this metropolis
He's not a large water-dwelling mammal
Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?
Did Steve tell you that, perchance?
Hmm, Steve

Excellent choice. I would have gone the less original Phil Collins route.

Epic.
164/2.7. White guy. I'm guessing they must have loved my WE, Personal Statement, and LORs.

no. they want you to pay tuition at some point, though.
Also, there is a national database of double-depositors and they crack down hard on those that are deposited at other places while still holding a spot at Wisconsin.

I need to get off TLS and LSN. Being on the wait list, I cringe every time I see someone accept an offer and cheer when someone withdraws. It's an emotional roller coaster...

Just tossing my reject in. 156/2.6 (3.6), so it was no surprise. It was the only school I applied to anyway. Good luck to those still waiting, congrats to those who got in. Wish me luck for next year.

Does anyone know why the clerkship placements for UW are so low? Is it a self-selection thing?

Everyone at T14's who can't get biglaw jobs are taking clerkships from the rest of Tier 1 schools.

It is certainly not a self-selection thing.

I saw some people on here saying that they emailed asking for an answer if possible (obviously in a tactful manner) and the next day they were admitted. Any thoughts on this? Saying something like "I was wondering if a decision would be made on my file this week because I have a deposit due on Monday at my back-up school" ... something along those lines?
