I'm keeping mum on my stats. (Hint: They weren't stellar.) I'll just say I'm in-state.

Anyone bother to take a tour/sit in on a class since being waitlisted?


Yes I did. They were very cordial and the tour was very good.

Visiting? Retaking in June?

Yes, though you do not get to interact with admissions much. I would not recommend it if you are only doing so for the sake of kissing up to their staff.


No kidding. I didn't meet anyone in admissions calling shots. I thoroughly enjoyed the class though. I give a two thumbs up on the visit for that alone..

Where did you hear that from? Is that what ppl have told you from last yrs class or is that just what you gathered from law school forums and LSN?

Fingers crossed that they really dig into their WL.


It sounded like lots of people were offered off the WL last year based on the UT c/o 2015 group or whatever. One was admitted after being dinged... but that doesn't mean that they took everyone off the WL.


Yeah, this.

Last cycle, a person on TLS said s/he got in after being dinged. I've also heard that this happened through word of mouth, completely independent of TLS (i.e., a friend-of-a-friend sort of thing). I believe this person is a Texas resident, but I can't say so with 100% confidence. I don't know if the TLS person and the word-of-mouth-person are, in fact, the same person.

The conclusion that the entire waitlist was exhausted might be nothing more than an assumption based on the fact that they admitted someone they had originally denied. So, is that a warranted assumption? I'm not sure that it is. When you consider that UT's 1L class must be at least 65% Texas residents, it seems feasible that a scenario could arise in which they're passing up out-of-staters on the waitlist but offering admission to Texans they had originally denied in order to meet this requirement.

I hasten to add that this is just conjecture.


I just wanted to clarify for y'all, the person on TLS dinged/accepted was me but I know for a fact that one of my buddies/sectionmates (also a TX resident) had the same thing happen. I would bet they have an extra deep waitlist this year to avoid that scenario happening again.

Yeah i think they are going to hit up their waitlist early before people get too set on committing to other schools.

LSN isn't too helpful in that regard. Those that bothered to update their statuses last year from waitlist to acceptance recorded February (which I'm assuming is the date they were initially waitlisted), May :D & July :cry: .

Now to dig through the TLS forums!

Thanks to all those that are withdrawing & giving us waitlisters a heads up!

According to last year's thread, start expecting calls as early as May: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=166008&start=1450

LSN is showing a lot of withdrawn applicants and many top schools have already begun pulling off their WL. Hopefully we will begin hearing on Monday!

I think they'd make any waitlist decision regarding your file based on your current information (LSAT score included). I've been debating whether or not to retake too. It's definitely the reason I feel I was waitlisted. However, based on the information available on how waitlists work, I don't think it'd make a difference to retake unless the end product is an amazing/scholarship-worthy score.

I gather they mostly look for waitlisted candidates to replace their initial admits that also fit the initial admit's softs and/or numbers to maintain whatever well-rounded class they're striving for. Additionally, beginning May 15, LSAC "provides participating law schools with periodic reports detailing the number of applicants who have submitted seat deposits or commitments at other participating schools, along with identification of those other schools." The information reported includes names and LSAC account numbers. http://www.lsac.org/jd/apply/whom-to-admit.asp. While I doubt schools actually rescind their offers, they likely apply pressure to admits and activate their waitlists to compensate.

In short, it's safe to say much of the waitlist movement will happen before June scores are released in July. ...BUTTTT, again, this is a world where rejects can be later offered admission so little is definitive here. Best of luck to you if you do retake! :wink:
