Just based on the little I've seen, you can get in off the wait list and get a scholarship. However, I think you would have to have a fairly substantial change in your GPA or LSAT from when they rendered the wait list decision.

yield protection

Some people will swear it exists, others swear the other way.

UVA has stated that they don't YP. My guess is that a little of it goes on, but not to the extreme that many claim. I think schools that are on the cusp with rankings may do a little to give them a slight edge in the USNWR rankings, but I would imagine it's minor and limited.

I think even cursory research would reveal that it occurs and that this year, with fewer applications, it is happening fairly often. Otherwise UVA must be hearing from a glut of underqualified applicants with 179 lsats and 3.8 gpas

I feel like UVA just wants to make sure people really want to go there. They've accepted multiple people with fantastic numbers and given them good scholarships...

Making sure people really want to go there is the definition of yield protection

WL'd 3/7/12. UVA is my dream school, I only applied because of a waiver. I will be hanging on as long as they will let me!
