You are being considered for one of the best law schools in the WORLD, just because you have great numbers it doesnt mean you are entitled to anything.

I am quite happy with my waitlist which just came in, typical reverse splitter.

Will ride this to the end.


People are being moved from a pool of post-JS1s where the average person had a better than even chance of getting in to a waitlist where being admitted is a long shot. It sucks. If you're actually trying to, you know, get in and aren't just looking for a pat on the back from one of the best law schools in the WORLD, it's depressing news. Especially when it condemns you to 5 more months of uncertainty.


This. This exactly. I have no clue how long I'm willing to wait, whether I should just sit out and reapply, whether I should take the money elsewhere...just no clue. I was hoping to have the opportunity to do the ASW and make an informed decision, but being in limbo doesn't help me make decisions.

For those of you who are perfectly happy, that's awesome. I totally recognize that even getting an interview, or getting to the wait list is an accomplishment. It just feels like an incomplete one to me, and my desire to solidify my plans for the fall makes me not as happy about it as y'all are.

The JS2s haven't reached our JS1 dates yet that I know of, so maybe we've still got a shot :lol:

I'm sorry/happy for all the WL candidates. You guys are all going to have great options either way.

Nov complete, Jan JS1 here. Tons of people w my stats/JS1 date got WLed today, they must have forgotten me (unless I'm about to get dinged).

Hang in there, guys.

Yeah I saw that... I wonder if other March JS1s have heard but just are not speaking. I really thought that March JS1's are waiting for their doom on Monday... but who knows... whatever, it's the weekend!
