I don't know if it would take a mass withdrawal, because, as long as they are over-deposited, well, of course they're going to be over-committed on scholarships as well. They still expect some of these people to withdraw over the next week and even through the month of May. If the entering class is reduced to the point where spots open up, it's likely that the amount of scholarship money they have committed will also be reduced.
yea im guessing some people are willing to lose their deposit to stay on board. but if they are planning not to attend, they wouldn't throw down the second deposit which is due June 1st i believe. so we might still be in for a long wait.
Correct. $200 is not a lot to lose, especially to people who have already spent $1000 on LSAT takes and retakes, study materials, application fees, etc. You've spent money and time the past year preparing and doing the best you could on the LSAT, and now you're going to give up the fruit of all that work for a lousy $200? I think a lot of people are still deciding between 2-3 schools, and are on some waitlists as well. Many people haven't even received a decision yet from a few of their target schools.
I'm going to stick with Dean Pless' assertion that he thinks waitlist activity this year will be moderate to heavy, because from what I have read on here, a lot of people still have decisions to make between schools at which they have already been accepted.
