Received my letter just now, preferred waitlist. Man, so this basically means there is still a chance I wouldn't be offered a seat huh. Ugh I'd give my left nut to go here...

not that simple unfortunately. I've already deferred a cycle because of my lsat and i've already paid my dues with that godforsaken test by taking it 4 times. Only other option would be to wait a couple years with some work exp and apply then when my not so great gpa doesn't matter as much, but i need to get the ball rolling right now.

In today but likely withdrawing soon. Not sure if I can stomach the OOS sticker debt burden.

I decided to apply today, although I'm not really expecting to get accepted. My LSAT is a little lower than what they usually look for (combined with the fact that it's really late in the game..) but I decided it couldn't hurt to give it a shot. Congrats to everyone who's already gotten accepted and good luck to those still waiting. :mrgreen:

does anyone have any knowledge on last cycle's fate with preferred waitlist folks? Will they all at least get a chance at admission eventually you think? I know the letter says "most commonly, all" but I'm wondering if I should feel pretty likely to get accepted or w/e.

I feel confident with a solo visit to the school, I will get accepted. I thought the language they used in the preferred waitlist letter was very strong. I guess now it's a matter of finding out if I can get in-state residency after year one. I would go as a PT student, so I would secure full-time employment in MD, and I'd only go there if I intended on living in the area anyway. I need 100% confirmation before I make my decision.

Omg, I got in! I probably can't afford it, but I really did not think I'd get an acceptance here. I'm so happy!

It is just to help their selectivity ranking. You will most likely be dinged. Save your $12. Plus you will not get any scholarship money.

not necessarily true-- I have a 157/3.95, OOS and applied on fee waiver, and I'm white and part Cuban (semi-URM) with great softs. Got offered an interview for the leadership scholarship, but I turned it down and withdrew. If you have URM status/good softs/great application you have a good shot.
