Held back in Nov after applying in Oct. Just got an email saying I'm on the preferred waiting list.

does anyone ITT know how wait lists usually go for GULC? Is there any chance that people could get in off the preferred waitlist in April (rather than waiting until May or later?)

Sorry to hear that; I'm in the exact same boat.

Yeah, I've been counting down the minutes 'til 5pm EST and am heaving a momentary sigh of relief.

I have been held since December after an alumni interview. No updates until 2/21....
I wrote a LOCI and have a rec. from a Georgetown Law alum....thought this would help but now I'm nervous- reverse splitter

If it's a snail-mail acceptance: as fast as a letter can get to your hometown (...having been sent last Friday?)?

If it's an email waitlist or rejection: hoping never!!

Either way, we "should" know by Friday, since that's the 28th, the day by which they said held applicants would know.

Okay I don't want to start a panic, but status updated from 12/15 (held date) -> 2/5 -> 2/26 (today). Two days to get to CA, just in time to see that acceptance in the mail? I can only hope so.

Every day, run to the mailbox... My mail comes early, so I just did the sprint...nothing again. (Because my mail shows up so early in the morning, I have a theory it's actually the previous day's mail.) Still sad, though. Hoping hoping hoping NOT for an email.

Nothing for me either. Not very hopeful at this point...

I don't feel terribly hopeful anymore either, except:

1. I've only heard of ONE held applicant being accepted so far, and they were PT.
2. I want this so badly I just keep hoping despite all odds.
3. It would be pretty cruel to take us remaining hold-ers all the way up to the 27th and 28th of Feb. only to crush us.

all hope is gone for me right now. No 2/26 update and no admitted student access. The world just wants to torture me this week.

Agreed. The wait is super cruel. In the same boat.

This could be an epic day in TLS lore if everyone in the thread gets a letter tomorrow.

It would be brutal if we hear nothing going into the weekend...
