For those still on the waitlist, did other peoples email say something along these lines..Thank you for your continued interest and for your patience. The committee has made a number of offers so far this summer and will likely make a few more offers next week. Beyond that, an additional round of offers will likely be made around the middle of July.....?



Mine said that.....Hopefully this is a positive sign

Sorry for asking this again but are these WL offers for FT only applicants? Has anyone of the PT applicants received this kind of letter specifically stating there have already been offers made off the WL?

This driving me nuts, still "in review" starting to really feel like maybe my app just fell through the cracks...

Verbatim on the above mentioned e-mail.

Bigred77 - I think that you are at the very least WL'd with a chance to hear that you're accepted. I would think you'd have been rejected if they weren't interested by now.

Don't forget, they're likely standing pat until some of the June LSAT test takers send updated scores to make further decisions on their entering class of 2010 (FT & PT).

I've been reading this thread for awhile. This is the first time I have anything to add.

I applied for full-time only and was placed on the waitlist. I received an email on Thursday which said that there were more spaces available in the part-time class than the full-time class at this point, and asked whether I would like to be considered for a spot in the part-time class. I said that I'd like to be considered for both. The next morning I received an email saying that I had been accepted into the part-time class.

It's not an ideal situation, but I'm 75% sure that I'm going to take the offer and hope to be accepted into the full-time class at some point.

I'll answer questions if anyone has them, but I don't have anything particularly insightful to say.

Good luck to everyone else.

To anyone on waitlist that hasn't already done this... You should get your FAFSA filled out before deadline at end of June. It would stink to be accepted in July and unable get a loan just because deadline has passed.

Did they offer you one Sherman? If so, will you take it?

I am honestly not sure what I am going to do. I really want to go to Houston but I am not sure PT at Houston is a better play than FT at Baylor in the spring. I am in the Peace Corps right now and my commitment is up at the end of July. If I went to Baylor I have a temporary job lined up till school started in San Antonio but they wanted to know soon. I was about ready to give up on Houston and accept the job and Baylor but now I am not sure what I am going to do. Hopefully I will figure it out by Monday.

This is what I as afraid of..... :roll:

Those of us that applied to PT, there seemed to be very few acceptances, mostly waitlists.
They seem to be offering the PT space to the FT applicants first.

I was afraid of this too. I know it's just sour grapes and I'd feel totally different if the roles were reversed but this still makes me mad. UH has frusterated me to the point where I'm almost about to give up hope. I've now hit 8+ weeks of being "in review," I've emailed them finally and they told me to just keep checking the online status, and now they're giving spots to FT WL candidates while leaving me in limbo. I think this will definately be dragging out all the way through the summer.

Congrats to those that got offers though. I think the PT WL will most likely see some movement around early July. They will have had time to get in all of the June LSAT's and will probably know for sure exactly what their applicant pool looks like.

I received that email. I didn't add anything to my file, but I did reply saying that I would likely accept a spot in the full-time class. The next day I received the email asking about part-time.

I'm considering the same options that you have: Houston part-time or Baylor in the spring. I think that I'm going to take the UH offer. Here are my reasons; maybe they'll help you. UH is about half as expensive, it seems as though it would be easier to rank higher at UH because of the larger class size, and Houston has a lot more to offer than Waco.

Let us know what you decide.

Yeah after thinking about this weekend, I came to the same conclusion. I sent an email to them yesterday and I hope I also get accepted to the part-time program soon.

Well today is the day the June LSAT scores are realeased (maybe I'm mistaken but isn't UH like the ONLY school who waits on June LSAT scores to admit for August enrollment, even if they do only do it for their PT program.) I have to think that there will be a waiting period with little to no movement while they sort out all the Apps they were holding for LSAT grades followed by one last period of high activity (acceptances, dings, WL movement im sure) and then probably a slow, random trickle of movement in regards to the WL all throughout July and early August.

My question is how long a wait untill this final flurry? My guess is that they remain relatively silent untill June 30th - July 2nd. I should say that is my hope because I would not be surprised at all if their administration waited untill after the July 4th holiday and responded between July 7-9. I think one of these time periods is when there will be the highest amount of WL movement and after that the only spots available will be if someone drops out last minute unexpectedly after already paying multiple deposits. In other words, not lookin good.



BTW congrats to those of you who just recently recieved offers, have you definately decided to accept?

That seems somewhat accurate, given the holiday and all. Also, I believe our dear friend rdcws000 summarized back on page 50 that in the prior year, lots of FT/PT pull came off the waitlist in late July, then just dribbles until the start of class.

...........I'm now left to agonize the timing for submitting onle last LOCI. :?

I withdrew today. (I was accepted off the waitlist almost 2 weeks ago.) Best of luck to everyone else, hope one of you gets my spot!

I toured the law school earlier this week so if anyone has any questions, feel free to PM me.

Well, July here we come.

In the spirit of World Cup football, we're into stoppage time and we need a goal. Congrats to the trickle of admitted students and yet another 'good luck' to comrades in waiting.
