I was rejected initially, but I submitted a letter expressing my very heartfelt and sincere desire to attend their particular law school.  I explained that I felt that, as an undergraduate there, I had grown very comfortable with their community/environment/campus, and that the area was very very condusive to my studies.  Basically that I really loved the town and school.  I also described my ambitious summer plans, and I subsequently got wait listed, then accepted. :)

Go sincerity!

Hey guys, I just got off the wait list last week!  Woot!! I'm going to Davis!

Is anyone having the 'you are not yet an active student' login error when trying to access the Perkins Loan forms?  Do we not yet need to filil those out yet?

Quick question:

Did anyone get that letter and were NOT offered admission? 

o.O No answer?  So that means everyone who got that letter was offered admission? o.O o.O

It appears there is a priority wait list, and a normal wait list.  People get taken off the priority wait list before the normal wait list.  I.E.. this late in the game, normal-wait-list folks haven't much chance of getting off.

I got put in group A.  163 3.3, outta UCLA. High interest in international law / human rights / constitutional issues, etc, and I spent two years of UG doing independent study on related stuff with a good professor.

The important parts of the letter read as follows;

"Based on data provided by the Law School Admissions Council at the end of May, as well as historical data from our office, we expect to make 5-15 additional offers of admission during the mones of June, July and August.  To provide you and other Provisional List candidates with a better sense of your relative position for admission, the Committee decided to group candidates into one of two groups at this time. 

....If we do not receive a response from you by June 10, we will assume that you are no longer interested in consideration and will close your file."

Te Information Sheet has a Q/A that says, in short: 5-15 candidates will be offered admisssion via the process.   Admissions Committee will re-review all candidates who complete the form by the June 10 deadline.  The Committe has divided the candidates into two groups.  In the liklihood that offers of admission will be extended, a majority will come from Group A.

I sent a first deposit, but I didn't send a second deposit, and I'm going to forgo the scholarship I was offered to attend San Diego... good luck to others who want in :)

I decided as of yesterday to forgo the San Diego scholarship, and remain at my current living situation to attend Loyola.

I'm gonna stay on all four waiting lists, since I'd attend any of those schools in a heartbeat if admitted. So yes - I'm still interested in Davis.

I'm in a similar boat.  I received a scholarship offer from San Diego, and they think I'm going... just wait till the week passes and they don't receive a second deposit from me.  It was a hard hard decision to say no to money.  (I chose Loyola because of its location close to where I live now, and I'm waitlisted at Davis, Fordham, ND and USC.)
