I'm on the "Spring/Summer" waitlist. above poster krzyreeesh mentions being on the priority waitlist:

I received my decision yesterday. I'm a splitter who applied very late and interviewed via phone at Case's request. I was offered a spot on the priority waitlist. Not really sure what that means as far as my chances but I am pretty disappointed because Case was one of my top choices and I fell in love with their International Law Center.

Looks like I'll be riding out the waitlist. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear.

Hey everyone. I am going to throw a party/cookout on June 12th since case doesnt have anything planned that day. My place is a couple blocks from the law school in little italy. I just wanted to let everyone know now in case you are still scheduling flights and what not.

For all of us on the waitlist... make sure to post if there is any movement after today's deposit deadline... on a sidenote, being on this WL is driving me nuts. :|

I just got this letter via email. Has anyone else received this?

"Thank you for your continued patience as you remain on our waitlist. Many of you have contacted our office to find out when decisions will be made from the waitlist. As you know, June 15th was our second deposit date. Most of our first depositors also decided to second deposit, consequently we are in a situation where we are currently over-deposited and are therefore not currently pulling from the waitlist.

As I previously stated in our waitlist letter to you, it is difficult to predict when or whether candidates will be called off the wait list. In most years we have offered admission to many candidates on the wait list; in other years, fewer spots have opened up. The availability of spots is entirely dependent on the actions of those candidates who have already been admitted. We are very sensitive to the difficulty of remaining on a wait list and being uncertain of one?s plans for the Fall. I can assure you we act as quickly as we can to contact candidates once we know spots have become available.

Again, those on the wait list are not ranked; as spots become available, files are reviewed for a second time. We may make offers off our wait list throughout the summer, and even as late as the beginning of our school year.

If your plans for the coming year include law school elsewhere, but you are still interested in Case, you should know that we do accept transfer students each summer for the following school year. The main selection criterion is your law school performance; LSAT score and undergraduate academic performance are not quite as important, but are factors in the decision. If you would like to discuss this transfer option in greater detail, please contact our office.

Correspondingly, if you no longer wish to be on the waitlist, please let us know so we may remove you from the list.

Thank you very much for your continued interest in our law school.

Sincerely,

After receiving the above email, yesterday I received this email from Case:

"The Admissions Office is currently re-reviewing a limited number of applicant files on our waitlist for possible admission. If you’re still interested in Case please let me know by responding to this e-mail by Friday, July 2nd. If your plans are to attend elsewhere and you wish to withdraw, please let me know that too.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,"

I am not sure what to think of the email.

It means you are being considered for one of the Waitlist spots.

They're trying to clean up the WL and avoid extending offers to people unlikely to accept them. They've sort of set a pattern of trying unusually hard to weed out 'uninterested' applicants - some who didn't respond to phone interview requests got rejected despite good numbers, they have a separate 'why Case' PS when many other T2/T1 schools don't bother with it, and now they're sending what can be charitably called a discouraging email followed by a request for continued interest.

Hell, I might have withdrawn after I saw the first message. Seems like Case is working on the yield rate this year. There are a couple WL, Accepted on LSN, so there's probably a little movement on the WL despite what they said above. It's possible more will be admitted - why not respond?

I would think that there are some WL spots opening up and they want to reduce the number of apps that they have to re-review by eliminating those who have already decided on another school. Or eliminating those who don't take 5 minutes to respond with a "yes, I am still interested."

New to the thread here.

I really REALLY want to attend Case Western in the fall. I got a 152 on the September 2009 LSAT and completely bombed the February LSAT. I didn't plan on taking the test again until Case emailed me and asked if I was interested in taking the test again.

Before I replied with a "yes," I wanted to tour the law school to make sure it was really the school for me. I immediately scheduled a personal tour with the Associate Dean of Admissions and made a fairly good impression of myself. She encouraged me to take the test again and I accepted her offer.

I took the June test and got a 158 (one point below their median). My undergraduate GPA is a 3.64 (their median is around a 3.4). This will be the first time they are reviewing my application (they had it "on hold" until I was done with the LSAT). Obviously, there are a much more limited amount of seats this late in the cycle, but I had no shot to get in with a 152 so I had to take the risk.

So, what do you think my odds are of getting in?

Thanks,
AVB

PS: To all of those who have been accepted to Case--Congrats!!

There's no way to predict this...anything we tell you is absolute guesswork, but the circumstances suggest they'll give you priority consideration, and your (new) numbers would normally result in anything from admit + 10k/year to waitlist. Case only considers the highest LSAT. If the case threads suggest anything, they suggest that bugging the admissions office actually tends to produce quicker results. Maybe send a polite note to the associate dean who gave you the tour?

Thanks for the advice. Do you think a phone call, email, or actual letter is most appropriate?

I received an email of admittance. I asked if Case would give a tour in the next week, in order to help me decide if Case is worth it.
