Do you want to go to law school next year? Ditching your only acceptance and praying to get off the waitlist is an awful idea unless you are OK with taking a year off and reapplying.  You could easily have no back-up plan.  If you're fine with this scenario, then proceed.  Remember that MOST people are never accepted off of any given waitlist despite the number of delicious cookies they dish out. 

I went to the DC one.  It really solidified my choice.  The alums were really great and I decided that Boalt wasn't gonna hurt my chances of finding a great job even if I choose to go east.

Does anyone know when we should hear about who has been accepted?

i didnt get a call or an email (although i as told that it must have gone in my spam, which it really didnt.)  i only found out bc i got an administrative email regarding admitted student passwords, so i asked what was up.  lo and behold, i had been admitted 2 weeks before.  still waiting on paper mail to arrive, however...

i am aware of the glory of govt and i havent been entirely turned off just yet.  i have, however, had more than my share of berkeley hippies (this coming from a very liberal individual).  although, i must say that i cant complain about the weather.  im mostly concerned that boalt (although top 14) is a very cali-oriented school, and i know im not gonna end up in cali.

sociology and be assured my daddy is no one important.

to be fair, i am a ca resident with some substantial work exp. including a well-respected firm. and a legacy at gulc.
but i am still shocked.
