WL

Will withdraw later today.

Goodluck everyone waiting it out. And remember, you too could become a future supreme court clerk and best friends with the future senior assistant dean of admissions at UMich Law!

I can't believe how many WL went out today... I guess I'm just thrilled to be lucky enough to survive today!

Your glasses are all half full. Waitlists are better than outright rejections any day. Not to mention, if you are getting waitlisted at a school like Michigan, you almost certainly have great options other than that. Don't let it get you down.

This really does sound most optimistic when I imagine Fox Mulder saying it...

I feel like an LOCI from many of the above obvious YPs could really make a difference. Bittersweet for all you WL'd guys/gals, better than a rejection but alas, more waiting haha.

I think it because of their emphasis on yield and perhaps they think I'm overqualified. Regardless, I was actually interested in both schools and this whole WL thing is a pain in the butt (I mean I interviewed with Harvard for crying out loud!)

174 LSAT and 3.89 GPA

Signed,
Confused


Exact same situation, but higher Gpa and lower lsat. Priority WL at Duke after after applying PT and now WL at Michigan. I'm still waiting on a ton of schools and hopefully a js2 and I thought this was a terrible omen but after seeing the post here, I feel a bit better.
