It's high on my list but it's not THE school I'm waiting to hear back from.

It's high on my list, but I can probably be swayed by more money from another school.

Meh... I applied because it's a T14 - we'll see how my cycle goes.

Really just plan on using it for scholarship negotiation purposes.

Still feel really unsure. I'll probably visit or go to ASW to get a better feel for the school/location.

You think it's YP? I'm really confused as to why they would waitlist median/75ths though???


Just in a state of ....??????? right now


That's my inclination given the sheer number of these waitlists with competitive numbers. Those who provided numbers have been giving specifically GPA= median and LSAT>75%. Seems too consistent to be a result of bad apps.

Maybe adcomms have overestimated the strength of applications this cycle and will be forced to admit a larger percentage of WL candidates relative to other years.

If I really got WL at Michigan with above median stats, I hope that means I'll get good news from NYU :lol:

Hopefully. However, both the September and the December LSAT scores + corresponding statistical data have been out in the wild for a very long time now. What else is left to overestimate at this point other than some desperate hope in February scores? I would think all schools now have a very good idea of their applicant pools.

Just out of curiosity, are you a super splitter? Your cycle makes zero sense to me.

Waitlisted also, applied right before thanksgiving, above both 75ths. No why mich. Can't be salty, I think the adcoms and I both understood that I wasn't that into it. Good luck everyone that survived today's bloodbath!

Waitlist via email. I had a 165/3.74 so that's definitely a statistically good outcome for me. I gave it everything I had - ED, why Michigan, etc. so it's good to at least not be outright rejected.

If your personal statement was as obnoxious as your posts on reddit and on the MS9 thread are, I'd say it's well-deserved.

Waitlisted with 3.6x/168. Michigan was my top choice in terms of where I expected to have a chance of getting in. Strong personal statement, interesting background, genuine why Michigan letter centered on faculty members and my interest in a specific area of law. This sucks. I really wanted to go.
