yeah. based on the threads from previous years it seems like they send out a generic email and then make some offers the following days. fingers crossed for WL movement this week

This part isn't exactly promising:
''the number of offers we will make is fully contingent upon the number of deposited students who defer or make other plans for the fall.''

Meaning currently they are meeting their enrollment goals.

i totally agree. BUT the WL thread from 2011 and 2010 quoted the same language and the next day 1 or 2 people reported getting in

LSN has very very few people getting in off the waitlist last year. Nonetheless I am along for the ride. Hopefully some tlsers will be among the lucky few. As a splitter I am not personally all that hopeful.

Hey just a thought, but the Penn Law class of 2016 facebook group only has 200 members, and the class of 2015 was 243. Obviously some people don't have facebook and others won't join the group, but just an observation...

i got an interest call two fridays ago and got in last week. soo get your hopes up!! and if you can, make it super clear that you would attend if accepted and would withdraw from wherever you're deposited and wherever else you're wait listed

I thought i was pretty nervous and rambling as well, but i think they understand we would be nervous at this point in time. i'd given up hope on upenn accepting me back in march and i think my excitement was over the top. oh well. i hope they let us in.

Also there are tons of current Penn Law students in the group posting about furniture and apartment offerings, so the number of members in the group definitely does not accurately portray the size of the class thus far.

Congrats. Any chance we could get some useful info out of you? Numbers, when waitlisted, if they gauged your interest, etc.?

Oh whatever I guess I don't care too much about being anonymous anymore.

3.9, 167

Applied 2/4, complete 2/5, Waitlisted 3/25
Called to gauge interest 5/15, called to accept 5/20

No Why Penn, no LOCI, but response to waitlist email said Penn was first choice.
