Those who got in today: Sorry if this is a stupid question, but do you think they will make us withdraw from other WLs?

I am going to state that I am on the waitlist (so I have a dog in this fight), but I think the consensus would be to wait a year and retake.

Also everyone on TLS seems to think GW at sticker is insane, so... Everyone else on the waitlist should also withdraw, except me of course.

I figure with IBR + Public Service Loan Forgiveness GW at sticker isn't a horrible bet. But to those of you who want to go biglaw or generally any private job, paying off $230k+ is gonna be hard and require at least top 1/3, probably better, to land a job that pays enough to get rid of those loans in a reasonable time period.

I just hope this is only the start of a LONG and far reaching waitlist acceptance spree. I will be crushed if this is the biggest push of their waitlist acceptances.

Yea, you have to click make a new ID, then put in the info, and then you can login with the ID and new password.

I'm getting a bit concerned. I haven't seen a single reverse splitter admitted off the WL..... Looks like they may be trying to boost the LSAT scores this year.

Is it customary to include information about a peer school's offer in a LOCI? E.g., I'd also like to let you know that I've been admitted to XYZ university with an XYZ scholarship. And while I'm grateful for their award, your school remains my top choice" or something like that?

Technically true, but a 165 is well within their range. When I think of a true reverse splitter, I think of someone with a sub 25% LSAT and an above 75% GPA.

+ I'm jealous and jaded you got in :)

Got the letter today in the mail, no scholarship info. It does say that more information will be coming, but I'm not holding my breath.

Did you also receive an email/phone call saying you'd been admitted?
