I asked them if they had an idea of when all waitlisted applicants would receive their final decisions because they have obviously already started reviewing the applications.. At first the guy I spoke to said he could not tell me anything but I eventually got him to tell me that they are going from scores right now. So much for not having a ranking system, eh?
Assuming he wasn't full of it, it's not clear evidence of a ranking system. It could simply be that they're sitting X number of committed students below their target median LSAT, therefore they need to take enough WL students above that LSAT in order to get to the target. Once there, they can be more choosy about who else gets in off the WL. That would also explain why they're pulling high LSAT folks of the WL left and right while other folks are still waiting on first decision.
Well if that is the case it might be falling in line with the way the statistics are showing this year. There was a large drop in the number of applicants in the US this year so those people could already have accepted something at a higher ranked school, which means they may have to dip lower even sooner. At least that's my hope haha
