Law School Admissions / The Shortest Waitlist?
« on: December 16, 2008, 01:16:29 PM »
So, what is the shortest time frame you have seen someone go from ''Waitlisted'' to Accepted? I got waitlisted so I wanted to be able to NOT check the status checker everyday..

The admission person said it could be anytime but usually by mid-march to april. Then she said "I'll keep your file in front of the committee as often as I can''. What is that supposed to mean??!!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Emory class of 2012!

I am waiting to hear from Emory. I just sent them an e-mail asking when they thought I was going to hear. She said I would be notified in 4-6 weeks. I wonder why some were notified early?

Anyway, I am from Atlanta so I can entertain housing, nightlife and whatever other questions you may have.

don't worry Matthies, I don't expect you to.  I am worried that my application will go ::thud:: when hitting the table because I have a criminal record and addendum, which is essential all related to the habit I kicked. I am just afraid it seems like a bit much...can't help it though, I have to be honest. The criminal addendum is for a DUI and speeding tickets, while the drug one addresses the difference in LSAT scores (15 point increase after kicking thr habit)

I did write an addendum! ( I consulted you Mattheis, if you recall)

It was the numbers...

I have 3 out of the five!!!

Thanks Matthies.

On second thought I don't think I am going to write the letter. Who cares anyway.

I like the idea of asking them areas I can improve in for the next cycle. It is also frustrating to see someone on LSN with practically the same numbers get accepted. I think I will write a letter...it will be nice and not direct. I'll post it when I'm finished.

Law School Admissions / Rejected? Why??

I received a rejection letter that was three sentences about their tough decision and to say sorry. Can I write a letter back to them and ask specifically what it was about my application that warrented the rejection? I was in the lower tier of the numbers but had some great soft factors. I am at peace with the rejection but just want to know exactly what it was that tipped their decision.
