I'm guessing it's random or there is some kind of ranking system that is not disclosed.

Would all under review be willing to state the quartiles of the alphabet the first letter of their last name is?

ie
A-G
H-M
N-T
U-Z

Or even just first half or second half of alphabet....

Ocho- First, sorry to hear. Second, did you go back under review before you got the waitlist?

I haven't been checking status updates so I couldn't tell ya. Do people ever get in off of their waitlist or is it mostly people from the reserve? Sucks cause my numbers made a pretty strong candidate.

This is kind of upsetting. I really don't like that they're giving some people on reserve decisions before everyone on reserve is even back in review.

i'm assuming they'll fill all their immediate needs now, and then the waitlist will be used if spots open up later in the summer. there are stories of people getting off waitlists in july and august, so i'm sure it happens, but i don't know how often.

Those of you in review from reserve: are you above LSAT median, GPA median, or both? I figure at this point they are trying to up one of them more than the other.

I'm still just reserve, my gpa is average but my 171 would bump up that stat. I'm end of 3rd alphabet quartile previously posted, FWIW.

Updated to IR 5/26. 170+ splitter. I don't think the WL update is necessarily bad news here; my gut feeling is that they don't have openings in the class at this point and are deciding between WL or cut. :|
