Sue added me, too. That's no indication. And it would seem like they would add more than one waitlisted candidate to their incoming class, well, unless there are only 199 enrolled and they're building a class of exactly 200.

Note: The 200 number comes from Dean Post's welcome speech.

I stand corrected. Though only two people were added by Sue (now that I look more closely). I don't know how waitlists work, but I could potentially see people trickle into the group. Offers might be made gradually depending on how quickly the committee decides to take certain candidates off the waitlist.

According to Asha, they don't send out decisions til late May. At best, they would've begun reviewing the WL today, but there's no way offers are being sent out.

Hey everybody - withdrew from the WL a few days ago. Had originally intended to ride it through July, but some personal circumstances arose that required me to make a firm decision now.

I'll be heading to UVA. My best to all of you!

I actually think the person added last week was from the waitlist, since according to LSN someone was admitted off the waitlist on May 12: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/ughregistration. There were two additional people added last week as well.

So, has this ship already sailed? Not like we had a realistic chance anyway :(

Seems to be the case?

If we could get an update on the facebook group that would be awesome. Based on years past, I would wait another week or so before writing off our odds completely, though the class is supposed to be stable by the end of May.

Alright boys and girls.

There comes a time in every man's life when he needs to say "Fuck this shit, I'm going to Harvard."

That time has come for me, and I am better for it. I wish you all the best.

218 members - 6 people came from the waitlist (you can tell by the timing of when they were added to the group). Most recent added last Tuesday. Hope that helps, guys!

Yeah, I'm gonna withdraw come June, although it seems like they're drawing relatively heavily from the waitlist.

Still hoping more come off the waitlist this week--have to imagine it's more than six?

Don't have to imagine that. Don't they take 0-10 applicants off the waitlist / year?

Weird, looks like one of the new six may have removed him or herself (perhaps turned down the offer), but there were two new adds today.

I think there's a conspiracy against TLS folks...I mean, one of us would have heard by now no?

Don't lose hope, guys - they're still admitting people. Someone got in this weekend.

Hope lost long ago, but it's a nice thought at this point that it's not a completely dead dream.

Other than Hillhouse ave, it's not that great. The architecture is alright, but fairly standard for NE ivies (Stiles/Morse and Sterling being exceptions).
