Law School Admissions / Re: Penn Waitlist
« on: June 11, 2008, 02:04:23 PM »
Out of curiosity, did anyone get the "gaging interest" call, tell Penn they would attend upon admission, and then not get an offer?

I want to be accepted off a waitlist...

Complaints from a guy who is going to U Mich with money should be kept to a minimum, IMHO.

It wasn't really a complaint and there's nothing wrong with wanting to get into a school that you'd rather attend even if you're already in a good situation.

i heard that it is better to take the LSAT in December if it will increase your chances of doing well -- even if it only means a three point gain. 

true, but then you should everything ready to go. LOR in, PS done, any addenda or additional essays done, applications filled out (assuming you know what ballpark your score will be in), etc.

I hate the fact that people are getting ready for next cycle when some of us haven't finished this cycle. They should refrain from asking questions to spare my feelings.*

*-Exception being reapplicants.

And I am well aware of the irony that if I had actually been prepared and applied early (which I am assuming the OP will do) I may not be in my current situation.

2. Columbia, NYU, Chicago

3. Penn, Michigan, Virginia, Berkeley

4. Duke, Georgetown, Cornell, Northwestern

Oh, I forgot to answer your original question.  It's only harder to raise your GPA than to lower it as long as you are above 2.0.  Once you drop below 2.0 it's easier to raise it than to lower it. 

Depends what you mean by easier. If you assume it that all possible grades are equally likely, then yes it is more likely that you raise your GPA, but still not necessarily easier (effort wise). Just a thought.

I have a couple friends taking it in June and the closest test site has been full for months. They signed up march 1st and have to travel out of state.

Name, email and phone # seems very plain, but I guess thats all you need. What about putting your school name or logo in place of a company one?

I'm staying on 2.

Question for you those who didn't include it: At what point will you not accept an offer of admission? 2nd deposit deadline? Securing housing? Orientation? First day of classes?

I'm not sure and was wondering when I should 100% commit.
