Just to counter the last post a little: I got in off the WL at GMU too and I didn't send anything in except the reply card. Judging from Lawschoolnumbers everyone who was WL,accepted had a pretty high lsat and my guess is that GMU was looking to raise its lsat #'s. Extra material certainly can't hurt though.

Thanks everyone for the responses.  :) I suppose I just won't mention it to W&L.
odes: nothing on Wake as of now, but GL to ya.

Hi all,
I just accpeted off the Washington and Lee Waitlist. Its my second choice after Notre Dame where I also on the WL> My question is:
Can I say yes to W&L (in the likely posssibility that I don't get accepted from the ND WL) and then back out if I do get into ND? I suppose I'll have to give a deposit to W&L to secure my spot, which as long as its reasonable (not huge $), Im willing to lose to go to ND.
Should I tell W&L about ND or not even mention it to them and just accept their offer?
Thank alot for any insight.

I just got accepted off the WL today.

I got into GMU off the waitlist too. My hopes are pinned on Notre Dame' WL right now. Im thinking GM is a bit ananmolous. (because they have free apps, lots of people apply that have no real intention of going, hence afer they're let in they don't send in a deposit. As a result GM has a near impossible time teling what % of accepted applicants are actually coming, therefore a large waitlist and lots of people admitted off of it.)
I think this year might be a good year for waitlists though -nothing to back that up, just hope mostly.

just a quick note. I have heard nothing but things about the Wndsor program. Though I too would wait as long a possible.

My girlfriend has a similar incident, though heres was on her record. She wrote a short addendum and explained it. It too happened in 1st year, though hers was relativley minor in nature (I dont know about yours). She has been accepted to everywhere she should have been and more (with her #'s, etc). Schools appreciate honesty. If you check off the box in the character and fitness questions and then explain what happened, with a note of what the dean said, then Im sure they won't hold it against you. When they see that you could have gotten away without mentioning it (ie its not on your record) but you still did, it will likely work to your advantage. Law schools want honest students and nothing could vouch for your honesty more than full disclosure.

and the graphs kick too

thats a good point re: Urbana, I hadn't thought of it. But there are lots of schools that compete in Boston that aren't in the city either (all the New England Schools) and the same with Chicago (Notre Dame, WashU, etc)
But, I would still go with Loyola.
If these are indeed the only two schools in consideration, then it IS a tough choice.
I really have a negative view of NE. Everyone Ive spoken with has kind of had a negaive view of the school. Im biased here (I didn't apply for that reason). That being said, its a drab campus, with pretty bad placement #s. I suggest checking out the salry figures ( I assume, you, like me want to make lots o' $) go visit both, and do as much resaerch as you can and talk to law people. Ultimatley its a personal choice. gl.
