Waitlisted

I was waitlisted at my top choice school two weeks ago. When is it appropriate to email/call to reiterate interest? Any ideas how to get off the waitlist? I have excellent softs and LORs, should I submit another LOR and from who. I am a non traditional student so I don't have a recent professor to vouch for me.

What are your numbers relative to theirs? Are you above one median and below the other, below both, above both, etc.

Both are slightly below. I was surprised by the waitlist so I am grateful to be there and that is wasn't a closed door. :oops:
They also said they do not rank their waitlist. They review each waitlist file as a seat comes open.

I don't want to come off as a pest.

retake - a higher LSAT score is a sure way to get off a waitlist

Being below both medians it is far too soon to send them more info now. You should hold off until spring if you can bear to wait that long.
