Why shouldn't he retake if he wants to? Nothing bad will happen if he does worse, and good things can happen if he does well. Bad advice.

I was waitlisted at my top choice and considered retaking as well. I already took it twice and there wasn't much movement in my score. Each time I took it, however, was at a very busy/stressful period in my life. I'm thinking that if I don't get into my top choice this year, I'll reapply next year. If I take in June, this would be right after my graduation (which I intend on celebrating fully). If I retake in October and apply early decision, then I have the whole summer to study BUT I wouldn't have the benefits of taking it in June... I'm leaning more towards October if I don't get off the waitlist but then again I REALLY want to get in this cycle...

Updated. I'm now 7/8 on schools I've heard back from. Others may have me in quantity, but I think an 87.5% waitlist outcome is a pretty impressive achievement. If I can go 3/3 on waitlists in the final three, I'll surpass the 90% mark.

Stupid Cal for ruining my perfect waitlist season. I blame a bitter admissions office after I turned down their undergrad offer a few years back. Or at least that's the excuse I'm sticking with.

Applied 3
Waitlist 1/3 (UNC)
Accepted 2/3 (UF & FSU)

3.46 162

Trying to decide if I should retake in June or October for next cycle, any thoughts?

February acceptances brought March waitlists for me, now hoping some April/May flowers are ahead. LSAT 170, GPA garbage.

Accepted: GULC, WUSTL, GW, Minnesota, W&M, UC Davis
WL: Michigan, Northwestern, Emory (priority), UCLA

BTW is there a list of what schools explicitly split out a priority waitlist?

Wait listed at UNC does anyone know how soon they may start to release and does it help to submit extra info like an addendum regarding grades or an interest statement?

I've finally heard back from all the schools to which I applied! 8 acceptances & 3 waitlists. Went ahead & declined acceptance at 6, deposited at 2, removed myself from the waitlist at W&M and WUSTL but I plan on riding out the waitlist at Vandy, though I highly doubt I stand a chance. Anyone here have any idea how much movement is usually seen from Vanderbilt's waitlist?

Anyone know where that waitlist thread is with the historical outcomes of staying on the waitlist at particular schools is?

Pancakes - Are you seriously considering any of those WL schools?

I'm on a priority waitlist for one of the schools, so I'm hopeful there. Went and visited one of the other schools this last weekend, and I left feeling positive.

For a bit I was, but not anymore. I've decided I really want to live in CO, even after law school, so the only one I would go for would be Colorado/Boulder and that would have to include $$. Otherwise I'll be at University of Denver this fall.

Pancakes - I am literally in the exact same boat (minus the interview at CU). Priority WL at CU, and in at DU w big $$. Will go to DU if not admitted to CU.

Final tally:

Waitlisted: Harvard, Duke (Priority), Georgetown, Penn, Michigan, Chicago, NYU, Columbia, UVA

Denied: Cal, Stanford

Accepted: NOWHERE

I think I win this year. An 80%+ wait list rate is insane. I find it funny that the only schools to ding me were the two schools that accepted me back as an undergrad.

Wow that's rough, sorry to hear. At least you're going to get pretty pro at writing LOCIs. Did you apply late?

:lol: Yeah, my LOCI game is going to be on point by the end of this. Applied at the deadline, which is what I'm chalking most of this up to.
