Yeah. Was kind of surprised to see that. It doesn't preclude you from riding out waitlists at other schools does it?


That's what I'm wondering as well. I wish the letter would be more clear about that, but waitlists don't really count as "seats" do they?

From my understanding, you're allowed to ride WLs. The only stipulation is that you cannot have another seat deposit out there.

I'm assuming these students sent a LOCI and so USC felt comfortable offering them admission.



I definitely wasn't yield protected - LSAT < 170.



what was it? 169? 168? lol

They are not allowed, per LSAC rules, to require you to withdraw your name off a waitlist in order to accept a scholarship. However, if you've submItted a seat deposit elsewhere, they are allowed to require you to relinquish that seat.
