I'm with you. I was thrilled to have been waitlisted the first time around. I'm fully expecting to be some of the fat trimming off the WL. Better to be pessimistic, that way I either get what I expected or am pleasantly surprised :|


At this point it's prob safe to say that they're more or less done paring things down. Good luck to everyone on the WL.



They'll be done after i get the boot tomorrow! If i happen to make it through, then ill get goin on a loci.

I have an immunology test tomorrow and I can't focus at all. Good thing the test is before the decision time, but it looks like I'm going to be dropping this one which is a bummer because its the first test of the year.

Good luck to everyone!

I was waitlisted back in December, hopefully I'll hear some good news from them today. Some of you mentioned interviews, how did you guys get them?? I wasn't even aware that they do interviews. :(

In some way the complete lack of correspondence for people who are rejected off the wait list is just.. cruel

I agree, I think they should at least tell the dinged people that they got dinged, it's a basic courtesy.

A lot of people got decisions fast. I was one of the few who didn't because I submitted near the Thanksgiving holiday.

I'm wondering just how big is the waitlist for them? I hope it's not huge.

They offer to 800-900 for the 134 spots so the waitlist is prob at least a couple hundred.

Although I believe what you said is true, I sincerely hope you're wrong....

I wish I did as well on the LSAT (165) as I did on the GMAT (710) or took easier classes.
I have a friend with a lower LSAT who took one of the easiest majors in his school [Anthropology..has a near-perfect GPA] who got into W&L super quickly..but to be fair, he knew he wanted to be a lawyer way before I even considered law school..so he had been making smart law-school-ish decisions since the beginning of college..

Psht, don't be sad! You guys are still out there doing better then 90% of applicants!

I'm happy with me mediocre GPA and LSAT score :) Didn't spend time studying for either one haha.

I've been trying to be productive but have been finding myself obsessively refreshing my webmail (kind of regret not giving law schools my Gmail) and the online applicant status page.
It will be at most 1 hour and 41 minutes before finding out...
