Also, for those staying on. Are you going to send an initial LOCI now? Or wait until deposit deadlines? I'm thinking of sending a brief TY for the WL... still my number one, quick one right now... and perhaps a more thorough update at the first deposit.

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.


Same thing here as well. WL at Duke in December. Got WLed today from Michigan. I'm expecting it too from Stanford. I applied in September and still haven't heard anything.

Michigan is awesome. They have the standard letter sent to all admits, and then the dean hand wrote a personal greeting referencing information in my PS and our previous email correspondence.
I'm sure she does this for everyone, but that's ok I still feel special.

That's so sad. All they did was give you a Darrow? No note? I'm so sorry.

I've been a Red Sox fan since before most of you were born. I'm used to dealing with disappointment, but thanks for the condolences.

Congratulations on getting in. But to everyone else who was just waitlisted, I think you can see that they probably have a reduced expectation of the students they can pull.

Well, all the schools YP.. which is probably what is happening for those that got WL'd with high numbers at Michigan as well. Your comment about reduced expectations is NOT warranted. For example, both Berkeley and UPenn took folks that were well below their LSAT medians -- and WL's many others that were above 75th percentiles.

You obviously don't understand Boalt. UC in general, and Boalt in particular, disdains standardized testing, since it limits the pool of applicants that they are seeking. So WL'ing high LSAT scores is SOP, absent a compelling story (think about why Boalt allows a 4 page essay).

I think that it is pretty clear in context that PB was saying that SCHOOLS have reduced expectations, not that applicants should have reduced expectations. Hence, more YP for high numbers and less waitlisting for marginal numbers.

You agree with each other. :roll:

I think that it is pretty clear in context that PB was saying that schools have reduced standards for admission this year and that's why those of us who got in were not rejected or wait listed.
