There IS a problem with putting down a deposit at more than one school.

As of June 2008 LSAC began reporting if an accepted student had put down more than one deposit on a school. Law schools have the right to revoke your acceptance now if you put down more than one deposit.

If I were you I'd make up your mind before someone else does it for you.

Good luck!

I quote from LSAC:

Multiple Deposit Notification

Each year, law schools that participate in LSAC's commitment overlap reporting service provide LSAC with information about applicants who have been accepted and have paid a deposit or provided a verbal or written agreement to attend their schools. Each spring, participating law schools receive periodic reports detailing the number of their committed applicants who have submitted seat deposits or commitments at other participating schools, as well as the identification of those other schools. Starting on June 15, 2008, those reports will also include the names and LSAC account numbers for all candidates who have deposits/commitments at multiple participating schools.

Miami, Maryland, Richmond, and Catholic

It's killing me. I'm hoping to get off of one of those. This year has been brutal. Good thing is that most places have seat deposit deadlines tomorrow - meaning not postmarked - but into the university. Hopefully the waitlists will start to move.

Apparently LSAC now alerts the schools if someone puts in more than one seat deposit at a school - and can even revoke your acceptance if you are caught doing so - so don't do it!

So it turns out that there is a priority and a regular wait list. Apparently those on the priority usually get offered a spot. My luck I am on the regular waitlist. Anyone heard of a regular waitlister getting in?

I'm waitlisted at 4 schools and the purgatory is killing me! Please please if you've made a decision withdraw from the other schools and give us waitlisters a chance!

Anyone know if the waitlist this year is separated into priority and regular? From what I can tell that is what has happened in past years, but the letter does not clarify - just says unranked.
