Just got an e-mail saying that Dean Richard's waitlist update e-mail will be going out soon, and asking whether I'd like to still remain in consideration, and they'd like to present my application to the committee for consideration if offers open up. I'm sure it's boilerplate language sent to all WL candidates eventually, but it's still nicely worded enough to let me continue dreaming. :wink:

Neither did I. Sounds like you maybe part of UVA's first WL offers. Congrats if that's the case, I'm jealous, but excited if were actually going to start seeing movement.

Much more likely, I'm one part of UVA's first WL decisions from way back in the cycle, and they're just going chronologically. I'm not getting my hopes up any; you shouldn't get your hopes down either. If there's anything I've learned through the law school app process, it's to be a friggin' Vulcan emotionally. It's just easier that way.

Don't let it. I look at this thread and I'm an admitted student.

Are you saying that my neurotic TLS scouring won't end with my admissions cycle? Shit.

Just got the same e-mail. It seems likely that they are sending it out to everyone in random order - I was waitlisted in early January.

Just got it too, and I was also waitlisted in early Jan. Looks like chronological order or something.

I just got a similar email this morning, but there was no mention of sending my application to the committee for review. The way the email was worded made it sound like they are hoping some candidates will withdraw in response.

Mine did not explicitly say that my application is being re-reviewed right now - said that they are beginning to re-review people and want to know our interest in uva, etc. I'm sure we all got the same e-mail though. doubtful they'd send people different e-mails, unless they are hiding that they do, in fact, rank their wait list. who knows...

Got the same email. I'll almost certainly be withdrawing. Best of luck to everyone else!

Got the Dean Richard WL update e-mail this morning in addition to the e-mail yesterday. Is the Dean Richard e-mail the one that everyone is talking about receiving today?

I received the Dean Richard email this morning as well. Do you think that since they asked for a quick reply attaching an LOCI would be unhelpful?

Yeah, I believe so. To clarify the email I got this morning was the general one with no mention of any submission of my app to the committee.

Interesting - so the waitlist might, in fact, be ranked....good for you, though!! What are your numbers - I'm curious to see what it is that they think they'll need.

Unlikely that it's chronological. I got the email as well and I was waitlisted in February. I also don't have good enough numbers to be a top candidate, so who the hell knows.

LSAT over 75%, GPA craterishly below 25%. Definitely not a top candidate/YP possibility.

You both have a 169LSAT. They may be worried that they can't keep their 170 median so they are targeting 169s instead.

Edit: Jk, for some reason I thought banana had a 169, I must of has you confused with someone else.

your point is still well taken. They might want higher lsats, so they are starting at 169+ or something.
