Just send it to their admissions office, they'll add it to your file. What were your stats if you don't mind me asking? My girlfriend just got waitlisted today too, feel free to pm if you feel uncomfortable about posting it here.

3.3/159

Most schools have been cool about sending LOCI's through e-mail. Villanova has no instructions regarding WL. Think I should send it in paper?

Yeah, I would send a hard copy in. Definitely sign it, but I don't think the high quality paper is a necessity. Are you OOS? I got in with a 3.2/159, but I'm in state. Either way, I think you have a good shot of getting in. Good luck :)

Does anyone know when Villanova starts accepting people off of their waitlist? The email made no mention of it...

I was expecting a rejection, so I'm sorta very happy about the waitlist lol, but I'd be ecstatic if I get accepted.

FWIW, the first seat deposit is due April 15th and the second deposit is due June 10th. Obviously I can't say for sure, but it seems to me that they would start digging into their waitlist once they see how many people have committed by the first deposit deadline on April 15th. Good luck!

Yeah, I'm OOS. Virginia. Hopefully a spot opens up for me. Good luck to you, too.

Just got an e-mail from Villanova regarding WL. LOCI's should be sent via e-mail, and additional LoRs should be sent via e-mail attachment or fax.

Note where Villanova ranks among "law schools with the highest percentages of graduates hired by NLJ 250 firms." Interesting, considering its USN rank (#61). I suppose its location helps.

This data is through September 2009:

Here's the parent source for the link, chock full of other information:

For what it's worth, I expect Villanova Law School's rankings to move up - especially with their opening of the new and modern law school.

For those of you who have already received decisions, when did you submit? I submitted mid-January and I'm just trying to guess-timate how long I'll be waiting. Thanks! :)

Just curious, has anyone else spent some time exploring the Villanova website? They have a ridiculous amount of information on it, I've just started to look around.

For example:
Student Facts
Students with laptops: 99%
Macs vs. PCs: 36% vs. 64%
Students taking exams on computer: 95%

They also have a past exam database, where you can search by teacher, course, year, etc. I can't access any of them now, but I'm assuming once you get a login you can access any exam listed there. Pretty awesome.

I doubt many people will be 100% sure until scholarship information starts arriving. That's what I'm waiting on. With Temple 20 minutes away, I hope they're giving out some solid aid this year. The tuition difference is 20k a year.

yeah. Pitt is giving me 14k a year. and in-state in 2L. ridiculous money along with cheap COL there is making me go nuts. I'm hoping Villanova can possibly match that.

Nova is on spring break this week, do we expect admission decisions and scholly info to still come?

I would guess that the admissions office works through spring break.
