I was also WL'd a few weeks ago, but sent an LOCI and had an individual visit. I wonder if this is for everyone WL'd or just those who haven't sent anything or visited?

I didn't receive an email. I was WL'd a few weeks ago, never sent a LoCI, and I did not visit.

I also didn't apply until February though. I ended up getting one of the mass WL e-mails.

This is good. That means we're not likely to have another 180 student class.

I don't think you'll have a 180 class but I know they took people off the waitlist last year.

Yeah hopefully they're more cautious this round and get a 130 class.

I visited the school and interviewed...I thought it went fairly well however I did not receive that particular e-mail. :cry: That concerns me.

They did say during the visit that they had already eliminated people off the WL who they had not heard from. So I am not sure what they are doing right now.

Did anyone who visited the school receive this e-mail?

There would be no reason for you to receive this email. They are looking for responses from people they have yet to hear from.

It would be a bad sign if you got this email, not a good one...

Did anyone else get a waitlist update e-mail just now with an absurd amount of typos? 6 in one paragraph alone.

Just received an email basically saying that I might hear from them in the next two weeks regarding the wait-list. I have not sent a LOCI or anything, but the email only said specifically to contact them if my "arrangements for law school have changed". Should I send a LOCI? Did anyone else receive a similar email? To be clear... it didn't ask if I was still interested (some other wait listed TLSers said they received emails inquiring about their continued interest). Is this good, bad, neutral? Also, the email was full of typos... almost ridiculously so...

How do you not even take the time to spellcheck the thing, though? That kind of laziness reflects really poorly on a school IMO.

I hope not. I would hate it if a school was falsely signing e-mails.

I like how they just sent another typo-free email immediately afterwards. Like "hey, ignore that other one, this one's good"

So what do you guys think of the new 3L program? Here's an article about how W&L's placement has dropped since instituting the new program. http://outsidethelawschoolscam.blogspot ... d-lee.html

Another article out this week ranking W&L 135 in terms of placement: http://www.thefacultylounge.org/2013/04 ... .html#more

ETA: third link is apparently blocked here. but look up deceptive clerkship numbers and you should find info about it.

I can't link to the third article, but I will try to give its highlights here. It was discussing rankings on clerkships done by US News, which are here: http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/c ... clerkships

W&L came out as #12 in the country in the US News federal clerkship rankings, with Percent of 2011 employed J.D. grads with federal judicial clerkships at 9.7%. W&L also had 10.6% in state/local clerkships using the same formula, but its ranking in that category was not shown as some other schools had numbers in the 30% range such as Seton Hall.

These are US News rankings, not W&L's, so there is no allegation that W&L manipulated any stats here, the article was just quibbling over whether US News should have calculated as percentage of the employed versus the whole class, which is probably a good point. If you use the whole class, the percentages for everyone go down by about a point or two, but the relative rankings don't change much. Someone should redo the rankings for all the schools with that in mind, but I do not think you would see a significant difference. No matter how you slice it, W&L does better than most other schools in federal clerkships.

The third article makes a better point about some of the schools that had particularly large numbers of state and local clerkships, particularly the schools in New Jersey (where there are a lot of traffic court clerkships), but W&L did not figure in the state and local rankings anyway. The more significant clerkships are generally the federal ones, and that is where W&L ranked highly.
