Wait List / Indiana University-Bloomington WL

I contacted the school yesterday and was told that I was placed on the wait list, does anyone know the chances of getting off or when they start to notify people?

I don't have quite the same number of waitlists as you do, but it still feels agonizing.

I'm on:

If I don't get into Maryland I think I may retake the LSAT and try again next year.  This is so depressing. 

Any advice on getting of the UMD waitlist?

Start with a LOCI. Find out their seat deposit deadlines, how over-deposited they are and if they plan on pulling anyone off the wait list this year. Schools usually know right off the bat if they will need to tap into their wait list. Then schedule an appointment to see an admissions counselor and talk about why you want to go there, why they should pick you and if you have a good shot. Also, if you know any alumi or people affiliated with the school ask them to put in a good word for you. I did this and was able to get an interview with Cardozo. I've notice that most people on wait lists are not very proactive because they assume that their chances of getting in are slim. It usually is slim but that works to the advantage of people who show great interest. When or if they pull anyone off, depending on your stats and their need you'll be one of the first people that they will think of. Good luck.

Anyone else dealing with what I'd like to call, "The Wait List Blues?"

I got waitlisted at:

New England School of Law
Hofstra University

What is the probability of coming off Wait Lists? I got accepted into Roger Williams and may attend there anyway, but I was just wondering how high the possibility is that one would come off the wait lists?

Thanks fellow LSDers


I withdrew from Rutgers-Newark and Hofstra recently, good luck. Itís hard to tell what your chances are because it just depends on how many of their accepted students they retain. If a bunch of prospective students to decide to attend other places (it usually needs to be a significant amount before they go the wait list) then you could get pulled off. I am on a couple of wait lists too. Just be proactive and if you have any connections use them. That approach has worked for me so far. Good luck Mike!!

I'm also on it, but I'm not really counting on getting off it.

Where have you decided to go?

I've decided on the University of Florida. I really don't think much, if at all, about the schools I've been waitlisted at. After having been through four months of hell, I'm glad I finally know where I'm going.

If, by some chance, I got called off a waitlist... I figure I'd cross that bridge when I got to it. Best way to keep your sanity.  :D

That's a good way to approach it. But I've decided to be super proactive about it. I have already spoken to some contacts there and plan on keeping in touch all summer. Good luck at UF, its an awesome school.

i am on the waitlist as well but don't see a chance in hell.

Where have you decided to go? You have some pretty good choices.

I know. But hey lots of people put down multiple deposits so hopefully they will pull a good amount of people from the wait list.

Thanks for the link!!

I hate to state the obvious, but it really depends on where you want to practice.  IU is Tier 1, but it's still going to place mostly in the Midwest:

Temple, of course, places primarily into Philly and southeastern Pennsylvania.

Well, I should have been more specific. I want to practice in Florida hence, applying to U Florida and U Miami. I did not get into either school so now I pretty much need to pick the one that has a better reach out of their area. Thanks!
