Just glad to hear something, especially not a ding!.


Waitlist for me as well. Definitely better than a ding. I'm on the West coast and this was one of the few non-West Coast schools I applied to.


#s? Riding it out?

GPA- median, LSAT-25th, strong softs. Most likely attending USD out here in SoCal, but figured I'd apply to a few schools outside. Was also waitlisted at Wake. And yeah, I guess I'm just gonna ride it out. Might as well, right?

Waitlisted today as well. Going to ride it out. I'd attend for the right $$$.

Good luck to the rest of you!

I guess they waitlisted everybody and their mothers. I'm in that position, also. That's seven and counting.

Yup, from here and LSN they seemed to waitlist everyone. I wonder what the strategy is...

Looks like the bloody Emory purge that happened last month. At least it wasnt' all waitlists - a 153/3.2 and 152/2.4 got rejected.

I guess it's a way to account for the possibility of a poor yield? Other than that, I have no clue.

I just find it weird they would waitlist so many this late! You would think that they already have an idea who is suitable and who isn't.

Keep in mind that we're looking at a /very/ small sample size. Literally only a few dozen. Thousands applied.

Also worth considering that our (small!) sample size is probably only visible because they're the most informed and active online; I bet there's a correlation between well-informed and good applicant.

According to LSN ( http://unc.lawschoolnumbers.com/applicants ), it looks like most of their offers have gone to candidates above median. I see very few acceptances for median, and below median candidates.

Of course, LSN does not reflect the entire pool, but based on the data I would think that we'll see significant movement on the WL. Especially since many of the median/above median candidates will likely have better options this cycle.

This is entirely probable, thank you for reminding me! I'm going to wait this one out, I could see myself attending if I was eventually admitted (although it is unlikely). Good luck to everyone :D

So how many of you that are wait listed are sending in an LOCI? Or other documents? And when?

Ugh...reading fail...

He probably wants to convince you to change your mind, somehow, or at least talk about your options so he can figure out where you are going and why you won't be coming to UNC. I got similar emails from the schools I withdrew from and MSU annoyingly keeps calling me about it despite the fact I didn't even apply.
