Wait List / Re: Notre Dame "provisional list"
« on: August 14, 2006, 10:35:23 AM »
Those of us still waiting... I feel we are truly at the crossroads, for this week will shape the course of our destinies.  Perhaps, a few of us may get in, but a larger number of us won't... but as Greengirl has stated in a number of her posts, I too believe, that we will end up where we are supposed to... and whether it's ND or our already respected chosen schools, we have all been given a tremendous opportunity, the opportunitiy to attend law school and that is a great feat within itself.   

So on that note, I wish not only myself, but everyone much luck, success and happiness. It's also nice to know I am keeping vigil at the crossroads with some truly special people.

Class size is down to 201. They are probably shooting for 200 flat. My guess is if there are two no-shows, one spot opens up. 3 no-shows, 2 spots and so on. Don't give up, y'all. This could be you-- With how much some of you would like to end up here, it would really be an honor to have you as classmates. Good luck.

*edit* If you get a call, it will be on the end of the first day of orientation, August 18th. If you don't hear by then, it will definitely be time to hang it up.

Thanks for keeping us updated  :) and for sharing the blog.

For what it's worth, I never got the letter. So I guess I'm released from the list....

It's not like I can move now. *sigh*'s starting to look better for you guys, though!!!!!

They may have sent it to your old college address. For some reason their change of address on the application didn't trigger and they sent a letter to my former address. Worth a call to see if you still want to try.

Probably what happened with tons of students who gave changes of addresses for after last semester and now they can't get in touch with quite a number of them...

They should really be doing email... Everybody checks their email!!!

No mail from ND today.  Did any one get a letter today?

Who else got the letter, and how does it read?

I sent you a PM.

Um... that strange feeling you have--  It's probably all of those hallucinogenic drugs you've been taking b/c I highly doubt that ND is going to bump up the class to 220 -- esp. w/ the Director on maternity leave.  If you think otherwise, good for you, but I'm a realist.

And that 5-15 number isn't going to happen.  I doubt ND over-enrolled -- 207 is it now? --  in previous years when they were able to pull 5-15 people off the wait list.  

Notre Dame, like every other smart law school, is stringing along people because they don't want to be caught with their pants down in case 50 people don't show up at orientation.  

Hope for the class to go down.  That's a more realistic scenario then ND pushing it's class to 220.  Me? I'm hoping that I win the lottery so I don't have to worry about law school anymore.   ;)

You're right, you do have a better chance at the lottery, so why waste your time waiting on ND, maybe you should just withdraw your app now.  ;)

First, let us remember what scholarly institution we are in limbo about: Notre Dame

A school that prides itself on high ethics and morals... I really do not believe with an overenrollment of nearly 27 at this point, they would be playing games with us.  I think it is quite possible they may decide to go with the 220 and Barney kindly laid out a very rational way in which it is conceivable.

Some baseless rationalization on that:

To decide if they'll "go for broke" and admit 220, you have to decide what it means to go broke in this case.  Happily for you all, there really is no financial disincentive to a bigger class.  The cost of providing the education is generally fixed within a certain range.  It costs just as much to provide classrooms and teachers to 180 students as it does to 220 if they've got the chairs and desk space. The only negative I'd see with those 40 extra bodies is that they might take a slight hit in USNWR for a slightly greater student/teacher ratio, but that's an area where they have ground to lose, and one that really doesn't count for much anyway.

If we assume that they've wisely prepared for that full 220 person class to attend, and that they've worked schedules and ensured appropriate classroom space to accomodate them all (possibly adding sections which would not otherwise exist) they have good reason to maintain the larger class.   

This could really to y'all's advantage.  Keep hoping.

With the number now down to approx. 207, if they were going to go for 220, that would leave about 13 seats available... The previous letter we received said they anticipate to pull 5 to 15 off the waitlist, the majority grom Goup A.

The recent letter, which I did not receive yet, which has been sent to Group A and B, because let's face it, there are going to be a number of people from A who are not going to be able to attend at this late date... but then why go to Group B?  Why not just release them, release us all?  Unless, they truly anticipate filling some more seats.

Maybe, I  am just giving too much credit to ND, but, I have a really hard time believing any institution, especially, Notre Dame, would intentionally at this late date, string people along. jsia
