OK, so I am in a bit of a panic and would really appreciate some input: I have been waitlisted at most of the schools that I applied to, and am at somewhat of loss as to what to do (if anything).
University of Houston
University of Denver
Out of all the schools on the list, Villanova is my top choice Ė two of the partners at the firm that I am currently working for are graduates of Villanova, and they were kind enough to write letters for me as soon as I was waitlisted (I have also sent them a letter myself). Do you think that will at all improve my chances? If I donít get into any of the above schools, I will be going to Loyola New Orleans for a year, and then, hopefully, transferring. Iím not overjoyed by this, but out of all of my safe schools, they offered me the most money. My numbers are not so great (3.7 from Tulane and 155 LSAT), so I know that Iím probably an underdog at most of the places. But, that aside, is there anything that can be done to improve my chances of being accepted at one of the above schools without appearing overly pushy? Also, can anyone give me some general advice in regards to the waitlist process?
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!
