I would love to hear thoughts about my prospects of getting off the waitlist.  Was anyone else waitlisted and if so, what did it take to get in?

Did anyone else who applied early decision hear back?  If so, what were your stats?

Mine are:

University of Wisconsin B.S
No masters/advanced degree.
Biopharm industry consultant -7 years experience (mid-level and executive-level roles)
international licensing experience (I negotiated in-bound license agreements)

I'm hoping the international experience will be a big factor to counteract the fact that I don't have an LSAT score and my work experience is more limited than what their average is.  They said to send along updates, so I'm going to send in the certificate I'm finishing in advanced negotiation and hope that helps.

They said the waitlist is a balance issue and they try to make sure each incoming class has students at a variety of different career levels and from different industries.  So, if there are too many professionals from a specific industry, then the process can be more competitive.  Here's hoping that other people go to a brick and morter school to make room for me since I travel and can't take off three years for law school!

I looked into both options and applied at St. Francis, but I'm not sure if I'll get in.  During the interview, I was informed that their acceptance rate can be as low as one in three.

If I don't get into St. Francis, then I'm planning on waiting a semester and re-applying and then if I still can't make the cut, I'm going to try Taft.  Concord didn't seem worth the premium to be, but I'd be curious to hear if the format at Concord is worth such an expensive tuition rate.
