Waitlisted. 3.6/163

Earlier on in the cycle I was expecting to get in and receive money with my stats, but I guess as the time passed my chances dwindled. Still surprised I didn't get accepted though. Oh well at least its not a rejection. I still love you Loyola but I doubt I'll be there next year.

Thanks for the well wishes everybody


If you want Loy, stick it out. It's possible to get a merit scholly coming off the WL - I've seen it happen. I may WD soon w/$, so there's one spot + $ you could take. :)

haha thanks...just tell them to give it straight to me...forget anyone else on the waitlist lol.

In all honesty though, is it really possible to receive money off the waitlist? wouldn't they just give it to another admit who didn't get a scholarship?

If you look on LSN, there are currently lots of admitted students with #'s lower than yours. I imagine they just applied earlier or even ED. Last year I remember lots of people getting $ off wait lists. Hang in there!

Swiard: Well, you are at least in good company! Sorry, of course, that it was not better news. I think the idea of us having applied towards the end of admissions might certainly be part of this result. Hope you have somewhere in the bag that's a good choice for you.

Mr. Matlock: Hello over here! Hoping your news is good on the P/T front -- then have them call Pepperdine for you!

Wow. They must have hated my PS. Me and "rorystewart" have almost identical numbers. He was admitted with $. I was flat out rejected.

I was DR 5/7 and waitlisted.

Is there a waitlist thread for Loyola? Is everyone planning on submitting LOCIs, additional LORs, etc.? Loyola's my first choice and I am holding out hope!

DR 5/7. waitlisted. 3.26/161. Thought I would have been rejected as the TLS interview w/ the dean says they average LSAT scores, and my average LSAT score is much lower.

I sent a LOCI on 5/3, so I'm wondering if they read it before making a decision on my app. I'm thinking of writing another one in mid-June.. too late/early?

I applied early January...same time as everywhere else. I guess that is too late this year with all the competition. I am just surprised that they held on to my app for 4 months. I heard back from EVERYWHERE else before them, including an acceptance at a similarly ranked school (USD) and a waitlist at a higher ranked school (Notre Dame). Oh well...I've still had a decent cycle and will be ok even if I don't get of Loyola's waitlist. Still a great school no matter what happens.

I got this email today-

"Thank you for your interest in Loyola Law School. After reviewing your file, the Admissions Committee has requested that you come in for an interview.

Anyone know anything about it?

Wow, that's very interesting. I had no idea they did any sort of interviews. All I can say is that you should definitely call and schedule one asap.

Are you still waiting on an initial decision or are you currently on the waitlist?

Fletch: I do recall seeing some language about potential interviews on the waitlist materials. I would only take it as a good sign! Best of luck.
