Incoming 1Ls / Re: UNC Waitlist - Any chances?

Accepted off waitlist 1st possible day after seat deposit deadline.

Going to be a Tar Heel - can't beat the "bang for the buck".


Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Campbell Law vs. Charlotte Law

I would recommend e-mailing the financial aid Office at Campbell Law and let them know you have been accepted elsewhere and given a schoalrship. See if there is anything they can offer you.

I had my scholarship offer from Campbell significantly increased doing this. Of course everyone's stats are different.

While I know money is an issue - Campbell has the highest bar passage rate in NC for the last several years. Their job placement is good for small to mid-size law firms and state government (i.e. Raleigh is the Capitol), as well as judicial. Starting salaries however, not so good - ~55K. I think this also reflects the current job market too.

Looks like i'm attending Campbell Law as of now - waitlisted at a few others.


Incoming 1Ls / UNC Waitlist - Any chances?

So I've been waitlisted at UNC - any UNC students from previous years have any idea of how many they take, if any at all? I realize each year is a moving target on this topic.



Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: So Many Wait Lists!!!!

Hopefully, you're accepted to a "Target" Law School that you'll be "OK" with attending if none of the waitlisted schools come through!

As to the "Waitlist" question - each year is very different and school dependant. As you are aware, it depends on many factors and complex yield formulas, how many they initially accept, etc. So, in short  - no way of knowing.

I do know most Law Schools will not activate the waitlist until after the second seat deposit requirement. Then they know if they need to activate the waitlist at all. Each School does the waitlist a little different - some rank, some don't.

In addition to your sending your LOCI, make sure you send your final transcript with your degree conferred to LSAC which will forward to forward to your schools. This will prove you got a degree and hopefully, no senioritis!

I'm also waitlisted at some reach schools, but I'm planning on attending my target school to which I'm accepted. Hope this helps.
