The link in the email will take you to a page where you can withdraw. I think someone else just emailed the school though, so maybe that works too?

Also on the WL train. I'm kinda pumped, though, because I expected a flat out reject with 161/3.4. I've been wanting to go to W&M since I was a little kid, so even an inkling of a chance makes me feel good, as far-fetched as I know it really is.

Joining the WL party, got the e-mail a little while ago. W&M is a reach for me but I'm still bummed.

I think a very high percentage of the people who got WL'ed will withdraw right away. If you send in a LOCI describing how long you have been in love with WM you stand a good chance to get off of it.

FWIW I don't know what they are looking for in a potential admit at this point... :roll:

IDK if some rejections went out today and we weren't part of them, we still have a chance. Keep your head up! I'm sure all of us have other great options even if Bill and Mar don't accept us.



welllll the first wave of rejections has commenced....and those without a reject letter I can assume are still in the game

WL email here 30 minutes ago, numbers twin. GL!

That has to be YP, no? Those numbers are an auto-admit in my book...



You don't know what he said in his essays, or when he applied. Most of the acceptances have been sent out, so what was an auto-admit in Nov, is now a WL. Says the guy the with the lowest LSAT and GPA admitted to W&M

My deepest sympathies. I'll get that email soon enough, to follow the WL. I'm sorry...
