Also waitlisted today. In state, UW grad, 161/3.3 and early decision. I will write loci and hope for the best. I just hope it doesn't take another three months of waiting.

In the waitlist email it says,"At this time, we would strongly encourage you to submit a letter of continued interest indicating whether or not you are still interested in attending as well as the likelihood of enrollment if you were to be offered a seat in the class (admissions@law.wisc.edu)." Does this imply that a LOCI should be emailed to them? or would it be better to send it in the mail?

I would write it like a letter, print it, sign it, and then scan and email as pdf.

Sorry to hear about all the waitlists. Kind of sucks after having waited a long time. I guess they yP out there in Madison. After my waitlist I did some research seems that they are "waitlist trigger happy" there and really want to see you wan to attend for them to take you. Does anyone know if you can get aid off the waitlist?

UW doesn't offer much scholarship money in general. I think the only way to get them is through a diversity scholarship (but I'm not sure if there is a number attached) and high LSAT applicants. I think UW has a reputation for just not being scholarship happy overall. I would assume sticker because I didn't see any people getting scholarship money off of the WL before. I'd also look to see how hard/easy it is to gain residency status for tuition purposes. I think you may have to buy property and claim residency that way. It's just something to research in general.

Hey all... I grew up in Madison, went to UW for undergrad, and am (very) strongly considering it for law school this fall. If y'all have any questions, I'm more than happy to help!

Does anyone know if they allow you to send in another Letter of Recommendation if you are waitlisted? Or if that is even a good idea?

I know of one person who told me (s)he received a scholarship after being waitlisted, but I have no idea how prevalent that is. Given the relatively low financial aid budget, I don't imagine it happens all the time.

It's my understanding you are locked into resident/non-resident for all 3 years

+1

From the old world wide web:

12. What if I am a nonresident - will I ever become a resident?


If you enter and remain in Wisconsin principally to attend an educational institution during the twelve months you are attempting to establish bona fide residence in Wisconsin, you are presumed to continue to reside outside the state. This presumption remains in effect until you are able to demonstrate you have overcome the presumption with clear and convincing evidence of bona fide residence in the state for the year next preceding a term for which you wish to enroll at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Wisconsin Statutes 36.27.(2) Section (e).

Generally, a student who enters Wisconsin to attend any educational institution will continue in the nonresident status until the student's reason for being in Wisconsin is clearly shown to be non-educational. Twelve months after the change in the student's reason for being in Wisconsin, the student may wish to inquire about appealing their nonresident status.

If you are unsure whether you qualify for resident tuition under any provision of the Statute, contact the Office of the Registrar residence Counselors: (608) 262-1355; 333 East Campus Mall #10301, Madison, WI 53715-1384; res4tuition@em.wisc.edu .

Not sure but I considered it and decided not to. I would just follow the bolded part in the email for your LOCI.

I sent a LOCI. Im trying to think of other ways to stay in touch so they keep me in mind when it comes time to get people off the waitlist.

I'd hold off for a bit. Some of us are still waiting for initial results. :)

They tend to let people off after they submit a LOCI so I'm not sure sending anything additional would help. You could always visit the school if you have the time.

I am hoping to visit sometime near the end of the semester. I just really wanna get in and I am worried I won't.

Are you in-state or out of state? Some people were let off of the list within two weeks last cycle and some a month or longer.

From previous threads movement on the waitlist tends to occur in mid march and onward. From the looks of lsn they wait list heavily perhaps they are afraid of yield idk. However, most sites tell you not to "badger" the admissions office and "be that guy" good luck on getting off. I really want to get off but have been fortunate to get in to a great school that at this point it's eh....

In-state... 160/3.4 not the best stats but still hopeful.

I'm a complete neophyte to the Madison UR, with only a mid January date. I have no idea what those people are doing.

I was in review from November till December for Early Decision... then I was deferred to the regular admissions and it took 9 weeks to get waitlisted.

Do you still have yours in the cycle or did you decide to remove it? I know you had thought about this option. Not sure if you followed through with it.

It looks like there was movement today on LSN.
