So I have been waitlisted by GGU. Does anyone know what I should do to get off the waitlist and accepted? Your advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! I am going to write a LOCI for sure, but is there anything else I can do?

You could offer to take adcoms out to dinner and wash their cars? :) But, seriously though, other than an LOCI I really don't think there is anything else that you can do at this point besides just waiting on a decision.

You're probably going to be fine. There are a lot of admit offers that go out and most will take a pass.

All the advice you guys gave was very helpful. Thanks! I have read on some other forums that it can be beneficial to go visit the school and ask to shadow one of their courses. I think I may try that since it shows that I am truly interested. :)

Here is what you can do.
On December 10th GGU had an information session which I attended. The admission Director told a story about last year admission cycle and a girl who was waitlisted. That girl sent 9 additional letters of rec. So Director of admissions said that the girl convinced them to admit her because 9 people (those who wrote letters of rec) were sure that she would succeed in law school. The girl was persistent =))

So send additional letters of rec .

I agree with this.. in almost all things that are competitive, persistence shows and pays off. I work in LE and someone who is persistent will get a second, third or even fourth look when things are competitive.

in today via snail mail but will be withdrawing tomorrow. Hope my spot goes to somebody ITT.


FYI: I was admitted without deposit amounts being shown. So if you have decision rendered without deposit amounts, don't think you were rejected!

Transfer applicant here...did you guys get any indication from the status checker that a decision had been sent before you got a decision in the mail?

I'm pretty sure I'll be attending unless I hear from a school I've been waitlisted at. Orientation is coming up so soon!

I know. I think it starts August 6. I still have to hear from USF and SCU, and I'm waiting for a McGeorge decision in the mail. Not much time left to decide!

How does GGU send their admissions letter? Do they mail out a large packet, or a simple letter with instructions, or is it a thick envelope?

Thanks. I'm on the wait list and hoping to get in for 2013.

Heard back beg of this month

got 20k with 3.0 stipend

Will visit sometime next month to see if it is the right fit. From what I have researched from online and here is the usual ( deceptive employment stats).

What do you guys know about the University? They gave me a nice offer. I got in to higher ranked schools close to where I live but they want me to pay sticker

I got in like2 wks ago with a $10,000 scholly. I'll probably withdraw soon since I've gotten better offers.

I would say the higher ranked schools (santa clara, usf, Stanford) are all worth it. From the research I did, ggu had not very good bar passage rates and employment rates. If you know you want to stay in sf and have a job lined up then go for it. Also living in SF is so expensive!
