Yeah I applied for both fall and spring. I actually went to the dean's office at Baylor Law and she pulled up my file and told me that my index number would probably not get me in at this point. Especially since they only have 80 or so seats and over 2000 applicants at this point. Baylor is sooooo picky about the law index, that it will recalibrate the LSAC UGPA by removing all pluses and minuses (ie a B+ becomes a 3.0 instead of a 3.5). I guess its working for them, they still have the highest bar passage rate each year (most of the time its 98%) and win most moot court competitions across the nation.

I did apply for a few law firms through a friend in dallas and got those wonderful "because of the down economy, we are not hiring" BS. Sucks that Im graduating and wont be getting any job with an office where I can hang my degree (or even afford to pay for the frame).  :'( As they said in Texas during the 80's....Oil Well.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Georgetown Waitlist

The quote from Andy Cornblatt is a few years old. The hundred or so are those who ACCEPTED their waitlist. GULC probably sent out 450 or more offers and they only got 100+ back. I would say you guys have a really good chance at getting in if you send correspondence to GULC expressing interest. That is only my opinion though.....Good Luck, GULC is my dreamschool....maybe next year.  ;)

Here is some interesting info you might want.....

"We have two wait-lists, our priority list and our regular list. In an average yearm, 450 to 500 are offered places on our priority list, and 25 to 50 are admitted from it. Similarly, 200 are offered places on our regular list, and 10 to 20 admitted. Of course, the numbers admitted from our wait-lists vary dramatically from one year to the next." - Andy Cornblatt

Well congrats on the people who are getting in (GMU specifically). I was on the first waitlist and now I am on the second waitlist for GMU ( I don't know how because my LSAT is REALLY low). Is anyone else still on the GMU waitlist? I gor rejected to all my "safties" (poor planning I guess) and I still have three other schools I haven't heard from (American, Baylor, SMU). I've done all I can thus far but what sucks is that I can't even find a job to fall back on. I was so "gung-ho" on law school and didn't put much emphasis on the job search. My current school's career services department SUCKS (they only use MonsterTrak) and every place in my area (and beyond) is in a "hiring freeze." I know this is a law school forum but I am running out of options until the next round. Any advice is much appreciated (so far all I have is throwing myself off a building so anything is good advice  ;))
