I agree, midjeep. If anyone has withdrawn their app after being accepted or declined a waitlist invite, It'd be nice to know. Update if you have new info.

Umm--the way you used the poll feature does not actually make any sense.
Yipes. I love how some pre-law students feel the need to explain absolutely every error or mistake to everyone. Is it just a superiority/inferiority complex or is it just how the future lawyer's mind works?
<------ Seconding Steve's eye-rolling...
I'm going out of the country for about a month, so I wouldn't be able to make plans to move until late-July anyway. So that's when I'll probably start looking for apartments in Philly if I haven't heard from my first choice school in San Fran. Either way I'm moving, so I'll get packing and hope I hear sooner than later. It would suck to sign a lease in Philly and then get off the waitlist, but I suppose subletting is an option too.
Can i ask then a slightly different question: how many people would actually go and well how long are you willing to wait on this glorious wait list?
It's my first choice and if accepted in August, I would go. I hope it doesn't come to that. Wait, I hope it does. Grr, oh well.
Hey does anyone know how many students are on the waitlist? I know that it's supposedly not ranked in the traditional sense, but it seems that a lot of applicants have been waitlisted. Also, does anyone know when the deposits for admitted students were due? Just hoping to get a better idea of when the wave(s) of acceptances will come.
Thanks for the tip, GA_Kristi. It's not that I would be *unwilling* to graduate from the school I deferred from, but I would definitely prefer to be somewhere else. My friends are telling me that after graduating from a very rigorous undergrad, it might be nice to be the "big fish" again, but I enjoy the company of people who challenge me intellectually. Unfortunately, I don't seem to have the aptitude for the LSAT, so my options were limited.
I'll take a look at Barron's and keep my fingers crossed about the waitlists. But any other thoughts from people would be appreciated!
Last year, I applied to seven ambitious schools and two less-so and gained acceptance to both my safeties and was rejected from the others. Wanting to stay at my job another year and to mull my options, I deferred admission at one and applied to a couple more schools this year, but unfortunately, I am now stuck on waitlists. In the meantime, I visited the school that I deferred from recently and realized that I really didn't like the atmosphere and the people I met, who seemed bored and more interested in partying and getting into big firms.
I'll be 24 this year, and I know it's not old, but I really want to get moving on my legal education and I'm excited to be back in the classroom again. In your opinion, if I don't get off the waitlist at the school of my choice, how easy is it to apply as a transfer for next year? My reasoning is that the 1L curriculum is basically the same at all ABA schools and it might be worth it to try and transfer during the second and third years, when I'll have some choice in coursework. Anyone have any insight on how many transfers schools tend to accept? Thanks in advance.
