This is my concern. But in all fairness, they do receive an ungodly amount of applications. I think the super duper special preferred waitlist is more equivalent to a Hold or temporary deferment at other schools-they're the runner ups to the uber high qualified people they let in or something like that. Those still waiting can still get in...

Of course they can, if they have the stats! I was commenting on the statement that marginal candidates might be in better shape because GULC entended the time to apply. I don't believe this is true.

i dont think so... being on hold at other schools is not a good thing.

I don't know if you guys saw this: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=149173

I'm using the program now and it is fantastic!! Much better to have it automatically run in the background, instead of manually checking schools' own status checkers individually.

Special preferred wait listed. :-(

Any idea how many people get this/my chances of getting in?

Stomach lurch. Apparently my frantic status checker refreshing this morning wasn't enough, and I updated for the 7th time late this afternoon. Dear GULC: it's not very nice to string a girl along and then ask someone else to the prom.

Typed too soon. Aaaaand I'm out. Best of luck to those still waiting!

If I could internet hug you, I would internet hug the crap out of you. Considering we got the same WL email from Michigan, I feel like we are brethren in this fight against the system.

I was angry but reading about others who got in, I can understand it. I was hoping numbers would do it for me. Should have applied in november.

Ah ya I guess so. I was just going off of some of the admits on LSN. But you're right, it just really doesn't bode well for this 178, 3.1.
