Yes!! *checks junk inbox*


Did they send out this email to everyone? cuz I didn't get anything from them after the first email around a week ago.

To be clear, I did not actually receive an email other than last week.I'm just happy there's some movement/review

Oh god, this is admission cycle all over again. But it looks like they are trying to get the high GPA folks, not the splitters?

Why do you say that? First guy who reported getting a call here was a splitter.

Oh, I see! Sorry, I apologize. I only saw the person with 3.98 and lower 160s, so that's a reverse splitter.

Sure! Just saying that's it's a totally random process, we won't be sure who they're targeting until we get a larger sample size. So so far we only have 3 calls reported. Anyone else been called or know someone who has received one of these?

Also, if anyone knows how many spots are typically available off the waitlist. Would love to know how many people are in the 2020 FB group, maybe that's an indication.

I did not. Also to correct my last post, it only took 1 business day for them to get back to me. I sent my LOCI on a Friday afternoon.

Apologies if this is a stupid question, but what does a feeler call typically indicate for the waitlisted applicant? Are they getting admitted if they still seem interested?

thankfully, I've learned a thing or two; before panicking, I checked my status checker - lo and behold, the "Wait List Update Email - May" is there.

Yeah, it was the short one that let you know they were going to begin reviewing WL candidates in the following week.

Anyone know if the line about not hearing from them again until June means we survived the first round of dings, or was this email truly just a general update?

I scheduled an appt and it says to put your LSAC number in the note (optional) field but I didn't see that. Did anyone else?

All I saw was "Waitlist Status Update" when everyone was getting JS1s and my heart skipped a beat.

Nope; the last field on the form was for LSAC number so I think maybe they just used the email from a previous year's WL Informational Meeting Form.
