Don't feel sorry, I was going to withdraw from them anyway now that I have something in the T10 lined up. Hope I cleared a spot on the WL for somebody who really wants it. :)

Hearing that Helm has been WL at UCLA made me reach an interesting realization: A good LSAT is a double edged sword. It may get you rejected or waitlisted at as many - if not more - schools than it gets you into. Obviously, it's not necessarily bad to be wielding this sword, but just saying.

Yeah, I think it was specifically mentioned in the WL e-mail that some people won't get off until the first day of classes or so. No thankayoo.

Unsure about my optimism/pessimism ratio, but Really Pissed About Not Hearing Back Yet. Not that I'm feeling entitled to a quick decision, but it's certainly frustrating when other people with or below my numbers AND who submitted later have already gotten a decision. I didn't even want them that badly until it became apparent that they're not dying to have me :)

SRSLY, UCLA. COME ONNNNN!

The way an application is put together can communicate such sentiments. Just saying.

Oh, you mean when I ended my PS with "And that's why I feel mediocre about UCLA, which is not at the top of my list," it could have been taken badly by the adcom? Well, crap.

:D

Meh, I submitted in late October and have numbers above both 75ths (but not too high!) and haven't heard a peep. LSN's in profile if you want to check it out for a little hope.
