Still nothing, except an official rejection letter that I knew was coming from the status checker.

Law School Applications / Re: Order in which apps are considered
« on: February 09, 2007, 08:03:05 PM »
If I sent in an app on a given date, and a lot of people on LSN have been admitted this week who sent in apps right before, same or right after me, is that a bad sign if I haven't heard yet?

Some of them have much better numbers, but many others are very close.  I'm trying to figure out what determines the order an app is considered, because some people with much lower numbers had a quicker turn around than people you'd expect to be all but an auto-admit. 

In other words, I'm hoping the lack of a response doesn't mean I'm getting a WL, because I just might  :'(

Calm down and have a drink.  I have come to believe that schools arbitrary admit people randomly. There's no system, and if they claim they have one. IT'S A LIE!!!!

Call the school and check.  Some don't allow anymore docs to be added after it's gone to the admissions board.  Also, some schools allow email, but most are snail mail.

I don't know about chances, but I had a friend who got off that waitlist last year. She applied full time but they offered her a part-time seat to get off WL. Keep in mind that option.

Also, if I remember correctly, if they DO accept you off WL they require your deposit pretty much within a week, or something maybe even shorter. If you're a paycheck-to-paycheck person, you might want to stash some cash for that eventuality.

thats fine if they need an instant deposit, if they did take me off the waitlist i would 100% go there over anywhere else.  Part time is really not an option for me, though I did read in their letter that it does improve your chances.

Write a letter of continued interest to let them know you're 100% committed.  Anyway, WL is better than deferral, and YES, I have read the deferral v. waitlist thread.

Law School Applications / Re: Best for Public Interest

I'm assuming Public Interest at UCLA is good because they have a separate application for it.  Based on the schools I applied to, that's all I know.

At least I didn't get any rejections today.

Law School Applications / Re: Letter of Continued Interest
« on: February 08, 2007, 05:16:23 AM »
Is it common to send a letter of continued interest if you haven't heard from the school?  I thought the procedure was only to send once you've been deferred?

It's usually something you do for deferrals/waitlists.  But some schools do ask for updated material. So it's up to you. However, don't send in so much stuff that if they actually defer or waitlist you, you won't have anything left to send in.



Btw, for the rest of you folks, there was a thread that was started earlier about this topic: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,80496.0.html

I cheer you on for taking it a 3rd time!  My score is low, but I couldn't put myself through that torture again.  Besides..never hurts to try again. Good luck on Saturday!
