If you can't generate a username and password, you should keep checking back every hour. And if it still doesn't work, start checking it every 15 minutes. Worked for me!

Well, yeah. I feel bad now, I was actually mostly kidding, but repeatedly trying to generate ASW info will drive you crazy, so you probably shouldn't do it. I did find out I was in 5 days before I received my letter, but even that sucked because for those 5 days I was freaking out thinking it could be a computer glitch. So, it will suck either way.

Haha I can just hear the phone conversation with Gtown:
"Hey, so um... I'm able to go on the admitted students page... does that mean i'm in?"
"Have you received a letter, phone call or email saying you're in?"
"Well....no, not yet...."
"Then you're not in yet"
"FFFFFFFUUUUUUU!!!!!!!%$^!#$&"
I'd rather keep my sanity, i'm going to resist the urge... if I can... WILLPOWER!!!

Nah, see, you gotta be more subtle than that. I ended up calling asking if there was "any correspondence in the mail", because I was going out of town (which was true). At that point in the cycle, they were only snail mailing acceptances, so if there was something in the mail you could be pretty certain that it was an acceptance. Even when I found out there was something on its way, I was still freaking out.

Maybe I should just call Andy and have a heart to heart. Or bribe him, what's the going rate for a T14 law school acceptance?

I think something said we would hear by May...13th? Something like "we're getting all our deposits in, we anticipate letting people off the waitlist, we'll know by May 13th for sure". Maybe in an email?

I think in Montauk's book he said that overt threats are much more effective than bribes at top schools.

that seemed to be the latest point, in theory, whereas decisions were said to start by the end of the week, at least that is what I thought which is why I asked

Now you've got my mind going in a place it shouldn't be, terrorism is over didn't you hear?

I've been thinking that today is likely, but it is still pretty early following seat deposits.

A low cut top should work.

I've been meaning to point this out- the activity on this thread is far less than on last year's waitlist thread. If we're gonna read tea leaves (and we are), I think that's definitely a sign of the supposedly low number of applicants across the board. I'm probably just trying to inflate my hopes, but I think that bodes well for the waitlist crew.

seems like a stretch to me...

edit: feel like if there was room in the class we'd start to see some movement soon, but this is all speculation

At ASW Dean Cornblatt said applications were down 11% (i think) but that the quality of applicants had not declined.

I have heard that numbers are down at least as much at most tier 1 schools. A smaller pool at GULC probably helps us. A smaller pool at the rest of T14 also probably helps us.

Sometimes I really wish I didn't try to keep myself positive. It's going to make it hurt so much more when I finally get the delayed ding.

I e-mailed Alison with a LOCI a few weeks back. This was the response I got about an hour ago:


"As you may already know, the response to our first deposit deadline on May 1st was quite strong. We were able to make a very small number of offers to our waiting lists candidates, and we don’t anticipate that there will be any movement on the waitlist until after our second deposit deadline on June 1st. Of course, this is only the first deposit deadline, so it’s always possible that things could change as the spring and summer progress."




I'm not gonna keep my hopes too high up.

Tell me about it. I was a SPWL. Turns out I'm not so specially preferred after all.

Sorry to hear that. Did you get the "small group" email last Thursday or this Monday?

this says to me that a few offers already went out, but none have been reported here? seems unlikely. maybe she meant they made offers before the deadline?
