Sorry to hear that. Im shocked you were waitlisted. Any disciplinary issues?


No, nothing like that. Good softs: work experience, speaks several languages, extracurriculars, etc. And my app. was not generic, it was specific and included an Epstein public interest essay.

Tough break. Sorry to hear about the WL. The consolation is that you are already in at Boalt, GTown, and a few other fine, fine, schools. And you still may get in off the WL. Good luck!

Westwood is just fine. I've still got my fingers crossed.

Shit :/ What were your #s?!

Random thought : I had already been admitted by Berk when I got WL by UCLA, can it be linked?! Like do deans of UC schools shared lists of admitted applicants and maybe UCLA thought it was pointless to admit me ever since Berk is more highly ranked?! Especially in my case, as an international applicant, I obviously have no ties to Los Angeles, maybe they would treat differently someone already in at Berkeley but with LA ties.

No, graduate schools aren't linked so closely as the undergrad institutions are. Sorry to say that :( In your case, I'm sure if you submitted an LOCI or two, they'd be happy to accept you, probably with some money. Were you hoping to go to UCLA by any chance?

December LSAT takers down 15.6% from last year. If you really want to go to UCLA and are on the waitlist I would not give up. I have a feeling moving students off of waitlists is where we will really see the effects of reduced applicants and applications.

Got the call! So excited, my first phone call (: no mention of $ though...do they always mention $ in that phone call or am I totally SOL?


Edit- I think I'm getting no money based on this thread. Damn. Should I show them scholarships once I get some? UCLA is somewhere I would really like to be but I can't do it at sticker.

When I got the call they told me about money right off the bat.. But I'm not sure if that is the usual practice or not...

Same for me. Twinkle might be one of those left hanging because there is a 0% chance she will actually attend. Or he just forgot to mention it.

Many people on hear said they recevied money off the bat. I wouldnt say you are SOL though. There is still plenty of time for negotiation.

But I would attend, definitely. If berk stiffs me on $ i would happily go to USC or UCLA with $$$. That makes the most sense since I want to practice in CA, right?

This too. But UCLA seem like a school that, once they have decided they want you, want to make sure they get you, if money is the only thing holding you back. Definitely let them know you would attend if the price was right, and that you can't justify turning down Berkeley et al with zero monies from UCLA. 95% confident that you could talk them into a full ride further into the cycle with your numbers if you really want to go.

With my GPA? I wish. I'm optimistic, not delusional.

It's not a guarantee, and lots of people submitted their matching scholarships and got nothing at all from Berk. It sounds fairly common.
