If I am waitlisted with a gpa below the 25th (3.3) and an lsat at the 75th, what is the chance of eventually being admitted? When do they finally give you the decision of whether you will be admitted or not? When you are outright admitted to a school, how much time do you have to decide whether to accept or not?

I applied in the 2010 with the same stats as you. I was waitlisted at a bunch of schools and never got off any waitlists. Last year was some kind of a record year for applicants. Im reapplying this year, so my advice is that if your waitlisted don't count on getting off because if this year is like last, they probably won't go to the waitlist that much, and when they do, they choose the person with the best lsat/gpa combo. Have some back up acceptances that your willing to go with. Best of luck bro.

I was on a bunch of wait lists last cycle, with opposite stats to you. After being accepted off of 3 of them, the feeling I got was when admissions departments look to the wait list they seem to try and bolster their GPA before the LSAT (which they probably already took care of).

Well that stinks. Is it really that hard to get off the waitlists? What suggestions do y'all have to better your chances of coming off the list?
