We don't know that to be the case. All primary pool applicants could well have been considered before that secondary pool applicant was let in. The DLIT date cannot be assumed to be the same as the date on which the decision was made.
According to this thread we DO know that to be the case. At least one self-proclaimed secondary pool applicant has posted an acceptance in this forum.
That said, I think the overall policy of the Feb. LSAT score is frustrating to say the least...
It appears as though you didn't read what I wrote before quoting it and responding to it. The secondary pool applicant who was accepted went DIT on 3/5. His application could potentially have been considered that very same day. As I said before, it could well have been the case that all primary pool applicants were considered before 3/5 or whenever the decision was made on the secondary pool guy who got accepted. The fact that they went DIT later is irrelevant.
I wholeheartedly agree that the February LSAT score policy is frustratingly stupid.
Right... but my problem is that secondary pool applicants are supposed to be considered AFTER primary pool applicants. They let at least one secondary pool applicant in before making decisions on all the priority pool applicants.
Note that they say that the secondary pool will be considered after the primary pool applicants have been considered
. It does not state that the secondary pool will not be considered until decisions have been rendered on all primary pool applications. It could very well mean that an application from the primary pool has been reviewed and was not immediately admitted or rejected, but is being held to see how it stacks up against some of the stronger secondary pool.
A valid point. The secondary pool acceptance could have very well earned its disposition before or after all primary pool applicants already received an acceptance, ding, waitlist or even a so-called consideration.
Understand though that the confusion derives from the waitlist. Psychologically as a waitlisted applicant you still feel like you have had no decision. I think that is why there are several frustrated people ITT.
My hat is off to all who have gained admittance to UF, and while I am certainly no authority on the subject, I am still puzzled by the unorthodox practices of this institutions admissions department…
