Hopefully, you're accepted to a "Target" Law School that you'll be "OK" with attending if none of the waitlisted schools come through!
As to the "Waitlist" question - each year is very different and school dependant. As you are aware, it depends on many factors and complex yield formulas, how many they initially accept, etc. So, in short - no way of knowing.
I do know most Law Schools will not activate the waitlist until after the second seat deposit requirement. Then they know if they need to activate the waitlist at all. Each School does the waitlist a little different - some rank, some don't.
In addition to your sending your LOCI, make sure you send your final transcript with your degree conferred to LSAC which will forward to forward to your schools. This will prove you got a degree and hopefully, no senioritis!
I'm also waitlisted at some reach schools, but I'm planning on attending my target school to which I'm accepted. Hope this helps.
