Email today saying I was under review and qualified for priority track and would hear back in 10 days or less. I can imagine they are working through the holiday, so idk if that 10 calendar days or what.

Anyone know the soonest they start taking people off the waitlist? Really frustrated over what I thought would be an acceptance and hope I don’t have to wait months and months and months for a definitive decision.


Also should LOCI’s be sent soon after getting waitlisted or later in the cycle?

I was waitlisted as well, with both LSAT and GPA way above the 75th. I'm assuming its YP.

I was several points above 75th LSAT but below 25th GPA so I don’t know if it’s YP.

Would they YP a 167 that’s below 25th GPA do you think?

Disclaimer, I am just a current applicant. But it probably depends on how much below their 25th GPA. If we are talking around a 2.0, I could see based on LSN how they waitlisted (just off the trends, again I'm no expert or would claim to be). But if you are around a 3.2-3.3 then I would argue YP.

Based on last year, I knew someone who wrote a LOCI for BC, and got off in January. Numbers were above both 75th percentiles. I also just texted that individual and she said that she sent in her LOCI a day after getting waitlisted. Hopefully, that helps!

Thanks! Yeah I’m between 3.2-3.3 so I’m hoping you’re right. Gonna try and make my LOCI good and send it in the next few days and then also I’m visiting within the next few weeks so hopefully I can hear relatively soon

Seems like a solid strategy, especially with the visit! Best of luck and I am sure you'll get off the waitlist!
