Sorry if this is a stupid question...I've been placed on waitlists at 2 schools and I don't want to waste my time with sending additional letters, recommendations, etc if it's not going to make a difference. I'm assuming schools use the waitlists to balance their medians, and based on my cycle thus far, it seems that for schools in the 15-25 rankings range it's all about GPA/LSAT and nothing else seems to matter all that much.
When you assume.....
You're probably right - this process is heavily numbers based, and that likely don't change that much when it comes to waitlists. But, considering you're a marginal applicant, I don't see why you wouldn't take any opportunity to improve your application here, even if it is unlikely to make a difference.
