Yeah that "our class is stable" thing sounds so sketch to me from what we've seen here
Do you all think that offers could be made in the next few weeks or should we not expect anything until after July 1st?
I'm wondering the same thing. I find it hard to believe that they have absolutely no spaces since the June 1st deposit but
Same! Was this past email selective? Did anyone get the "you are among a select group of students"- I didn't but since they started releasing people....[/quote]
I got the original selective e-mail that was sent in April and last week I got the e-mail about possible seats being available after July 1. I think that email was also selective because (as someone posted on this thread) they sent some waitlist rejections at the same time[/quote]
Same, I wonder if they sent out the select group email (I guess we won't know though)[/quote]
Question: I am waitlisted at a school and giving my insanely low LSAT score and GPA, I'm beyond shock I wasn't outright rejected. Anyway, I got the backing of the directors of one of their clinics and two students to write me a letter of recommendation after I was miriciousely placed on a waitlist. All of them are leaders within their law school community, and one of the professor/directors is a big shot professor as well. He said that never has he ever wanted a student to be so badly admitted and that the school should be begging to have a student like me. Had I had even a decent LSAT score and an okay GPA I would have been accepted. Anyway, I have been on the waitlist since March and, they recently started admitting/ rejecting/ second waitlisting folks. However, I have neither been admitted, placed on a second waitlisted nor purge. Should I be really worried? Also, does having the backing of an entire department within the law school gives me a little bit of an edge? Finally, since I was placed on the waitlist, I have accomplished a lot, and I highlighted that in my two LOCI's. Before you judge my grades, there is a solid reason why my grades and LSAT score are so low. I was never supposed to make it to where I am right now.[/quote]
My opinion, maybe the backing got you onto the waitlist - which is awesome - but I'm not sure if it's going to be a big factor into getting you off. I have a low LSAT score but a high GPA (reverse-splitter) and I was pleasantly surprised to get waitlisted too. I think we've all done the LOCI thing and accomplished different things since we've applied (I applied in October and have done quite a lot since) but only a few of the people in this thread have gotten an acceptance since. I think now it's just about their class sizes, demographics, and whichever numbers they need more of (i.e. high LSAT vs high GPA) and not about who they know :/[/quote]
I was also a reverse splitter but I applied in early January and got accepted late January. I withdraw my acceptance for another school but I have to admit, being a reverse splitter this year seemed to work out in my favor. Just my opinion. Is this your first year applying? What other schools are you considering?[/quote]
------------- (not sure why the quoting thing on this thread is acting up)
I wish I was that lucky. I applied Early Binding in October and was placed on the waitlist in January. My softs are very strong - work experience, awards, honors, personal statement, GPA, etc. This is my first year applying and I just graduated undergrad in May. I've been accepted to AU and I'm waitlisted at W&M.
