Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: PENN LAW WAITLIST
« on: June 07, 2007, 09:33:45 AM »
i have no idea why they waitlisted so many people, especially people like me whose lsat is not stellar...but i wish they would give us all some sort of update, either way...holding onto seemingly false hope is getting harder by the day. i know i have to make housing arrangements and figure out loan stuff for the school i'm planning on going to as of now, but the penn waitlist makes it so hard to move on...and i have no more information to send them...

I keep thinking I'm over Penn, but then I read these threads in hopes of somehow getting in...happy w/ my current choice, but penn is ultimate dream school. if they really are going to updating applicants, i hope they give us ALL an update...waiting is agonizing.

Sorry to be annoying, but those of you getting off the waitlist @ Penn, did you do anything after you had been waitlisted, like sending in extra stuff?

Waitlisted at ultimate dream school.

Originally deferred, then waitlisted.

From deferral in December until now, pretty evenly spread out through the months: 4 letters of continued interest (1 of these letters included an update with a new innovative work project) and 2 extra LORs. I sent the last letter at the end of April/beginning of May.

Since taking the LSAT again is there anything else I can or should do? Should I send some more letters confirming interest every few weeks?

I'm in a similar situation, where I've put my deposit down in 1 place and hoping w/ my heart to get off of my 1 dream waitlist (although it's a dream for a reason, it's highly unlikely to get off of it). I would suggest maybe looking for housing in June or so for Syracuse if you haven't heard anything from your waitlist yet, since waitlists seem to be moving a lot in May? And if you end up getting off a waitlist later, hopefully your place is sublet-able? That was my thought on the issue.

According to LSN, last year Penn started taking people off the waitlist as early as late April, but they took a few people in August too, so I guess everything's fair game. i'm not sure if the April dates refer to when they got their waitlist e-mail or when they got in. Although the waitlist probably is a soft rejection for my sad numbers, it keeps hope alive. i still have a small glimmer of hope in miracles~!

Choosing the Right Law School / WUSTL vs. BU vs. BC
« on: April 13, 2007, 11:42:17 AM »
Sorry to add to the ever growing list of these threads, but confused out of my mind and hoping for some feedback:

i am pretty much 100% committed to public interest.

WUSTL: gave me only loans in fin aid package. said they'd consider me for other $, but have not heard back yet. decent loan forgiveness, good clinical opportunities, i really like the facilities, and i'm more ok w/ st louis than i thought i would be. if money weren't an issue, i think i'd lean towards going here.
BU: loan forgiveness not guaranteed, good clinics, i didn't really feel comfortable w/ the school in general, i didn't think i really could enjoy my education there, but i love the urban location and they gave me 20k, which makes me sick to think of turning that down, even though i didn't really feel like i could be happy there.
BC: 10k offered, awesome loan forgiveness, clinics are great. i think i could be happy here, but i wasn't in love w/ it, and while i like boston, i didn't like it as much as i thought i would.

thoughts, anyone?

yes, the 20k is per year, so 60k total. there are vague references to developing their LRAP, but right now basically they only help 1-2 students per year, so it's not a guarantee that you'll get any money from them post-graduation, and i don't feel confident trusting that they'll improve it in the next 3 years.

thanks for feedback. i need to keep looking into this, but i just thought i'd throw it out here too.
