I am too, and while rooting for everyone, I still feel like expectations need to be tempered. I've worked my way since last Friday from considering a WL to be soul-crushing to deciding that a WL would be OK, since it still offers an iota of hope. Therefore: just don't want a ding today. And by all means: if we somehow break away from tradition and all get in, I will be THRILLED to have been wrong all along!

No acceptances even reported. :( It was truly a mix of WLs (preferred, not preferred) and dings.

Also, I just checked my (early) snail-mail and no cigar.


So nobody from TLS was admitted off the waitlist lat year?

Well that sure douses any excitement. Now it's like we're on death row and the execution date is sometime in the next 3 hours.


I know I have seen at least one person admitted off the waitlist with numbers <25th LSAT and 75th GPA.

Waitlists: yes. Holds? Not on decision day (i.e. the 28th). So again, if we get waitlisted today: maintain hope!! But I've yet to see an instance of people who were formerly held getting in on Feb. 28.

I have been following these posts for the past few days. Going a little crazy over here with this wait! I hate to be negative, but I feel like they are sending a large rejection email at the end of the day.

I am starting to wonder if they meant that we would be notified on February 28th, 2015...

This isn't a leap year, is it?

I just had an awful thought, do you think they are madly reviewing the FAFSAs turned-in today to eliminate the financially undesirable held applicants?

It seems savage to ding people outright on the last day. Oh well.. To be perfectly honest I think that if they're going to fire these WLs and Dings at us, it's going to be in 10 minutes, just before they leave the office for the weekend.
