Did anyone/is anyone planning on calling admissions to ask about the update we were supposed to get?

aww dont lose hope, maybe they are sending out an acceptance update, you never know, yh i hate waitlist limbo as well, but i am looking at law school numbers and if u look at the ppl who were accepted there are so many withdrawals, it looks like they will have space, all those who got a phone call for the most part were on the pwl so maybe they will send an automatic offer to those on the regular who they interviewed and promised something by june 6th..............u never know

Now THAT is optimism, and since I'm grasping for hope, I think I'll latch on to your vision!! Thank you for being positive and spreading a little light and goodwill.

They want to protect their yield. Particularly when making offers off the wait list, think the most well get today is a feeler email. Ugh

u may b right but always think positive :) , I mean GULC has to fill a class of 500, the people with good lsats (which there are very few of) AND good gpas will rush into harvard, yale, nyu, uva, ect................they will most likely get scholarships from higher schools,they will fill the seats in places like columbia or uva or upenn ,berkely ect.......... this leaves splitters and reverse splitters, and people with equal to or less than Georgetown's 50th percentile for both, this is where cornell (big on reverse splitters), northwestern (splitters) and Georgetown come in. Remember this is the weakest applicant cycle in a long time. Georgetown according to LSN has been accepting 154 lsats with high gpas. they might go for the higher lsats to so that they could balance out . You just never know. Keep positive :)

that might b true but they could have sent the update a while back, how long does it take to send a three paragraph email to a bunch of ppl at once, they could have done it on Friday too, I called them four hours ago, u never know mayb there is hope

Don't think we will receive an update today, and if we do it will be the end of the day. I think by latest, we will receive a response by Wednesday.

Why? Because they extended some offers to WL candidates after the first deposit but before the second deposit and gave them until today to decide whether they would attend. They are probably still collecting responses and calculating the number of seats available prior to sending us an update. With over 500 deposit submissions and WL responses to account for, I imagine this process takes time and they aren't jumping the gun by sending the rest of the WL a generic email telling us there are no spaces left.

In fact, the fact that we didn't receive an update on Friday is a very positive thing. It means they either did not receive a strong deposit outcome or have not heard back from people who were accepted on the WL. If this were the case, they would have already told us to wait another month.

Devil's Advocate - then why take a few people off the WL in between updates?

To fulfill a specific need/deficiency in the class. For example, if someone with high LSAT/high GPA withdrew after putting in the first seat deposit, they would admit one reverse splitter and one splitter off the waitlist to mitigate the effect of the withdrawal on medians.

If you look at the stats for applicants admitted off the waitlists this year, there a lot of reverse splitters and/or YP. This means that their GPA median was probably lower than accepted for regular admits and they utilized the waitlist applicants to raise the medians.

Not that strange considering the waitlist trends from previous years.

It usually takes the office about 1-2 days to sort out responses since they are processing transfer applications as well. Both class sizes are larger for GULC than most schools. Remember they not only have to remind candidates to pay their deposits but confirm payment before going to the waitlist.

From an admissions perspective, it's easier to reach out to applicants who have already been admitted and give them an extension to pay deposits rather than take applicants off the waitlist and do the exact same thing anyway.

Hi All - I am new to the forum. I'm on the waitlist (PWL, though it seems that those designations may not mean much this late in the game?)

I recieved the same email re: the July 3 update.

Just out of curiousity, what are everyone's contingency schools? Sorry if this question is taboo, I see that it isn't really asked, so I get the impression that it might be.

Anyways - best of luck to all! You should be proud of where you are, in or waitlist. A VAST majority of law applicants would be envious and I'm sure you have all received very impressive offers.
