They will kick down up to $500 for a plane ride and some for transportation as well. They don't require a seat deposit. I'm on the east coast too, and found a reasonable flight from Maine to Sac Town. I will be there on the 18th and then go drink wine the rest of the weekend in Napa.

waitlisted :( complete 12/10.
I was wondering if anyone thinks McGeorge will stay in Tier 2 this year?

I honestly feel that they might move up slightly in Tier 2. We'll see though.

They seem to be making quite a big deal of the fact that they increased their medians this year and their advocacy team was just named in the top 5 (I think, I'm just recalling the multiple conversations I heard about this at the legal scholars day). I don't know, but it's possible they'll move up a place or two...

I think it's pretty easy to move either way from their spot ... at the bottom of T2 I could see a bump of 10 spots -- or a drop of the same.

Here's the question though: if they fall are we all going to jump ship?

If they fall out of T2, it's going to make my decision harder. I will have to start contemplating Seattle if I do not get into SCU. I don't like to put too much emphasis on rankings especially towards the bottom of T2, but if I somehow do really well first year, I know that chances of transferring to T14 are easier from T2 than T3.

Most schools have rising medians so I honestly wouldn't count on a school like Pacific jumping very much. I think a school like Chapman has a much better shot at rising through the ranks.

Anyone have any insight as to when UoP would start pulling from waitlists? I plan on sending a LOCI now but I am leaning toward retaking the June LSAT and submitting my new stats to UoP in late June when results come out.

Wishful thinking or waste of time?

omg omg, I HAVE MOVEMENT! At first I thought I was just being dyslexic, but my status changed from "Complete 11/3" to "Complete 3/11"!

(When you're me and you've been waiting this long, you have to be happy about the little things.)

No DR for me today either. Been complete since 1/7, apparently rolling admissions doesn't apply to some of us haha.

Nice! After looking at your post, I decided to check mine and I guess mine updated to. Went from "Complete 9/3" to "Complete 3/11". Took them long enough.

Thank you so much for posting this! I got the same letter about missing information and had the same DR date, signed in to check, and found out I was accepted! Now I don't have to spend another day or two agonizing over whether I got in or not :D
