you guys seem like awesome people kinda wish Boston was as warm as you guys...fckin Massholes lol


going to Suffolk? i mean wherever you feel will be the best fit, its so awesome you got off of the wait list! just can't believe IU-indy is taking forever to get to the wait list.

I thought those of you still waitlisted that I was accepted for the full-time day division, but I'm asking to be moved to the part-time division. If they allow the transfer that should open a spot up for full-time. I'll keep you all updated...

*Update*

I received and email back that they are moving me to the part-time evening division. Hopefully that opens up a spot for someone still waiting.

looks like they have some room to play around with, sounds like they are flexible with switching around. looks like a positive for all of us in the WL situation huh?

No. I was told to call back at the end of this week. By then they will know how many available seats they have.

:roll: Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....it takes the better part of 3 weeks to figure out how many people their system says paid their deposit? I seriously doubt anyone is in a back room counting anything. :( Losing hope of getting pulled from purgatory.

Rooting for you guys! Even though I'm no longer in the running this thread gave me hope on the whole waitlist situation. Wish you guys all the best!

Hopefully we will meet in a court of law and be able to strut our stuff :)

I second that guys. Also a quick tip if you aren't too picky you can always send them an email requesting to be considered for PT as well. The requirements are a little more lax and after the first year, assuming you get good grades, you can transfer into the FT program and still finish in 3 years. I firmly believe that my email stating that IU-Indy was my first choice and that I was willing to go PT just to get into the school was a determining factor in my acceptance. Keep in mind they eventually admitted me FT and moved me to PT at my request. They clearly have room to work with in both sections. Don't give up hope. I expect to see you guys on campus in a couple months for the orientation weekend.

*Just because I'm accepted don't think I've stopped caring about my brothers and sisters still in limbo

I applied to both programs and have maintained a willingness for either--I even stated a preference to admissions for part-tome; to be noted in my file. I'm hoping that makes a difference...My lsat score is a couple of points below a few of the other waitlistees(153). If nothing else admissions has shown that their moves cannot be predicted. Not knowing anything is almost as bad as knowing that I was rejected.

this has become a support group! haha, hopefully it works out for all of us in the end.

i switched to either preference in my last LOCI, so we will see where it takes me, i suggest everyone else change their preference to either. beggars can't be choosers.

Friday it is!

I actually suggest people keep their preferences the same...especially those with higher LSAT scores than mine! :)

j/k I hope it happens for everyone.

So I think I inadvertantly opened up a spot for you all on the waitlist. I just read over my LOCI to see if there was anything else I could say. I realized that I left out the word "of" in the second sentence and I sounded like a hillbilly. I proof read it at least 5 times and didn't catch it. I even had someone else proofread it. I feel like the biggest idiot. uughhh :cry:

i don't think they even read lOCIs..if you and your proofreader didn't catch it they probably won't either. they will probably speed read through all of our LOCIs, i think its all based on interest level and replacement issues. if you have the numbers and demographics they are looking for you will get the spot. numbers game. interest is just a plus one.

If you didn't catch it and your friend didn't catch it, the admissions committee probably won't either.

But I would caution you from being so specific about something like this as AdComms DO read these boards. I literally had the assistant dean at a school I'm waitlisted at email me to answer a question I posted in the school's topic on TLS. She even referenced my post and these boards explicitly...I was hugely surprised, but thankful it wasn't anything negative.

Thanks for the heads up. Other than pointing out my little typo that they probably caught anyway I don't think I said too much. Just bummed that I let a mistake slip. Striving to be flawless is a losing battle I suppose.

I wouldn't worry about it....EVERYONE makes typos and I'm sure that most packets have a few. The admissions comm. is probably pretty good at reading around them; they probably see tons. Typically the reader will evaluate your letter as whole and not let an insignificant mistake sway their opion. I found a typo (or actually an omitted word) in my LOCI as well. Like you, I don't know how I missed it but it is what it is. Don't let it get you down. I seriously doubt the person reading your file is going to ding you for it.

As I read through my previous post, I see that I again murdered the English language with typos...

Guess things are finally wrapping up with admissions since I just got an e-mail asking me for my section preference for LARC. One step closer for all of you waitlistees.
