I have a wait list/LOCI question. After a lot of back and forth on where I'd be right now, I'm not surprised but disappointed to say that Georgetown is my top choice, and I was waitlisted. I'm 3.4/171. My waitlist is preferred and in the "special group" if that actually means something.
I graduated in 2010 and had a tough time finding a job (I planned this year off) so focused on studying for the LSAT/applying to schools. Now, finally, I have a good gig as a Legal Proofreader/Document Specialist at a company in town. (Good for me, as I'm in a small town where the paralegal jobs are filled with law school grads who couldn't pass the bar.)
I'm going to talk about this in my LOCI and send them an updated resume, but here's my question: I've decided that if I don't get in to GULC 2011, I'm going to probably put off law school for another year and try ED next year. Should I mention this in my LOCI or will that make it seem like ... well, that I should probably have some work experience under my belt, and since I'll be a stronger candidate next year, that they shouldn't admit me? To be honest, this is absolutely last case scenario for me as I'm itching to get to DC, but it definitely seems better than obligating myself to American.
Best of luck to everyone else and any advice is appreciated!
I have similar stats, did you get an interview prior to the priority waitlist?
And I personally wouldn't mention that you're ready to forgo a year in order to go to Gtown. The way I see it, it could be taken two ways: 1) oh he/she really wants to go here, let's accept or 2) oh he/she will be there if we want next year, no rush to accept
