To all the WL candidates, I'm sorry. If it makes you feel any better, they are probably being overly conservative because of the class-size reduction, and there is a potential that more will make it off than in past years.

I'm sure this is a repeat question, but I couldn't find it- They're shrinking the class size? By how much? (Actually, from what to what? Not sure the current size...)

Thanks!! Unfortunately, my 164 was my second try. My first try was a 161. Apparently, my brain is pretty stubborn when I tried learning this test.

I'll turn 25 this summer. I was working at the Pentagon at 19 (my sophomore year).

So you somehow managed to go to the naval academy while working at the pentagon and being an emt trainer for six years. And Then were a jet pilot? Can I be your trophy husband? Seriously, you might be one of the most accomplished 25 year olds on the planet. Is law your passion? Are you gonna do jag? You fascinate me. Also, just wow! And thank you, I now feel both honored and inadequate.

I got accepted back in January with a 3.5/167 - I'm guessing they filled up their class pretty quickly, hence the WL and dings for people with better numbers than mine!

I think a lot of it's YP. If you really want BU, write a LOCI and let them know!

I applied early November (171/4.0) and just got WL..
I dont think it has squat to do w app date filling the class.
Just sent a LOCI. Man thats humbling.

Most of us noting waitlist with numbers that should have gotten us in applied in early November, mine at first week of December seems to be the latest. So I don't think filling up early is the culprit.
I also was waitlisted at BC, where my numbers should also have been a pretty good lock since I'm at 75th% LSAT and above 75th% GPA.

Particularly with Elvis Aaron's 171/4.0.....waitlist??
They are obviously doing something interesting with admissions.


Weird cycle. Weird.
