Wait List / Re: Loyola Waitlist

This is what the status checker said after I received the notification of being taken off the waitlist.

"A decision regarding your admissions application was made on April 08, 2008. A decision letter was sent through the U.S. Mail and should reach you within seven business days of the above date."

I've lived my whole life in the LA area, so I will commute.

I got in to the full-time, day division.

I got in!

I received a large envelope, via FedEx, in the mail today. 

I wish everyone else all the luck in the world...I know what a horror it is to wait!

Wait List / Reapplying for Fall 2009
« on: July 16, 2008, 08:22:05 PM »
Assuming you're on the waitlist now, and don't end up getting in, what have you heard about reapplying for the following year?  Are any of you thinking about doing this?

In Montauk's book, it seems like most successful reapplicants take the LSAT over and get a much higher score.  But, what if you don't take the LSAT again?  (Or, in my case, have already taken the LSAT twice)

Do any of you know current law students or lawyers that have attended law school after reapplying?  If so, what did they do in the year before reapplying to make their application more enticing?

So, still nothing from Loyola?  I was hoping that we might get something from them last week, since the deadline for the waitlist inquiry form was due July 3.  Maybe this week?

Does anyone know if this is standard proceedure for Loyola's they usually wait this late to let you know.  I have a friend who's currently attending (who had a much lower GPA and similar LSAT score to me) and they let him know in late June.  I know Loyola seems to be getting more applicants recently and the "caliber" of applicants is on the rise...but, really, this is really late to be letting us know...or maybe I'm just going a bit batty waiting...hahaha.

Anyway, as usual any information shared is greatly appreciated.

Has anyone been taken off the waitlist for Loyola since late June?  Just wanted to see if there's been any recent movement...the wait is killing me!


Financial Aid / When to accept financial aid?
« on: July 07, 2008, 04:23:12 AM »

I was accepted at UC Davis and am on the waitlist for Loyola (Los Angeles) and UC Hastings. 

Davis has offered me loans, but I'm hesitant to complete the paperwork for them because I'm still waiting to hear back from Hastings and Loyola. I know it says that I can reject the loan at any time, (i.e. if I were to withdraw from Davis to go to another school) but it still makes me nervous.  Am I just being paranoid?

Any personal stories/experiences on this issue would be much appreciated.
