I am on hold at my #1 choice as well.  I stopped by the admissions office and handed in a LOCI including my commitment to attend if accepted as well as an updated resume (the only thing different is a little extra volunteering) and I am having 3 new reccomenders write me new LOR's specifically tailored to the school.  Good Luck!  (and if anyone has any additional advice, it is greatly appreciated!)

3 new LORs might be going overboard.

The timing is spaced out quite a bit.

Does that matter?

I wouldn't think so. I think that schools probably mean it when they set a limit on LORs, regardless of how long a period they are spread over. I actually read an interview with I think it was the dean of Boalt where he said basically that they don't even read them if you send too many and that it might actually hurt you.

To me its kind of like the homely girl trying to get the football star to go to prom with her. Stranger things have happened and it'd be nice, but really its a situation where time is better spent elsewhere and actually comes off as kind of pathetic.

Wow.....I wasn't really interested in Fordham anyway but I'm really glad I didn't apply now. That really pisses me off.

I talked to Byrd and basically if you are in-state and on the waitlist, you have a huge advantage.

my dad got off the waitlist, but that was 30 years ago  :D

That's good news for me (assuming that also applies to the "hold" category").

The hold is defintely better than the waitlist, however, things are looking worse and worse as far as I can tell. Normally, they make decisions on these before April 1st, which is not going to happen this year. I have heard that Byrd isn't even going to be looking at them until mid-April. The best thing I can tell you, is that if 50% of poeple go on the hold list, then I would estimate probably about 10% get in (this is only based on the fact that their acceptance rate is 39%). That's figuring that they accept 25% and reject 25% right off the bat. I don't think that's going to happen this year though, I'm pretty sure that the hold list is a death knoll this year.

I would prefer to know what is up with Iowa deferring people 3 points above their 75% LSAT and above their 25% GPA.

This is different from a waitlist because you are being guaranteed a decision at some point, whereas with a waitlist you don't have any real decision til the day school starts. You can probably expect a decision shortly after their deadline for deposits, because basically what they're doing is waiting to see who all that they've accepted actually sends in deposits and is going to come. Once those deposits are in and they know if they have space left they may or may not admit you. There is no telling what your chances are at this point because it all depends on how many people decide to attend the school.

Law School Admissions / Re: Wisconsin - Haven't Heard a Thing!

I went complete on Jan. 11th and got my letter on Feb. 7th. so I took 27 days from complete until I had a waitlist letter in my hand from Wisconsin.

Yikes, you got WL with a 166 and 3.43? That's brutal.

Yeah....I didn't like it much. Wisconsin has been doing that this cycle though it seems, they claim to look at soft factors more there and I think they really follow through on that. I know of someone with almost the exact same stats as me that also got WL'ed there.
