Sorry dude :( FWIW, a friend of mine was waitlisted last year and got in the first part of May (if the U is your first choice, that is). He did a LOCI and an interview.

Ya it's definitely my first choice. The letter says I'm in the first round of the WL, whatever that means, and I can interview. Here's to 2 more months of waiting. Ah I'm so let down.


I feel your pain. Got my WL today as well. The U was also my first choice :cry: I feel like crying...

I am also kind of surprised. I got into Minnesota with a $20 K/year scholarship. I wonder why Utah doesn't find me appealing. I chose to believe it is because of BYU for undergrad :evil:

Lol, I know your pain. I got wled to unlv despite getting 20k to wake forest. Odd how it plays out. I am Byu too, btw.

That's strange. I don't understand this admissions thing, I was surprised they accepted me. At least so early. Good luck getting off the WL soon guys. No one can have my spot yet.

In the binder there's a card to send back by March 11th asking if you're planning on enrolling, not sure, or not enrolling (non-binding), so they can evaluate their class size. So I'm assuming there will be a lump of acceptances after that point as well. :)


GL to everyone still waiting!

Which class did you sit in on?

I have also been accepted and visited on Friday. I was really surprised by the whole experience. I am thinking about going back for admitted students day to meet you all and try to finalize my feeling(s) about the school!! :D

Boy, I am nervous about scholarsh info. I am worried that this year's superior numbers will blow mine out of the water.

Rosky or Cassell?

I'm a 1L at the U (in Rosky's crim law class), and if anyone has any questions I'd be happy to answer them.

Anyone have an idea when scholarships came out last year? I think I read that by mid-March we should expect to hear something... that is, if anything is on the way. I'd love to attend the U but I have some full-tuition scholarships in the T25 so $ is probably going to be a deciding factor.

Wow... how did they WL you with a 166? Quinney has by far had to most confusing admission system I've come across during this whole process.

As I said before, something fishy going on at Quinney. They let me through with a 3.05 and much lower LSAT.

160 & 3.5

Also some one else asked what my impressions were..... All the kids seemed laid back (as much as you can be in law school) and down to earth. I was really impressed by the fact that the prof of the class I was visiting took the time to meet with me before class and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me. Since I want to school where I am more than just another student and/or number it seemed perfect.

I didn't for the U, but I was very successful negotiating with other schools. PM me for details.
