I am in the process of negotiation with several schools right now and my experience is that you should just do it regardless just to see. I actually suggest calling rather than sending a letter, it has seemed to work better for me and they get back to you faster. Just say that you're having a really hard time deciding and as much as it bothers you to say it, money is an issue and anything that UPenn could do in terms of increasing your award would be really helpful in making your decision. Also, make sure to say you're really thankful for the offer you have been made.

What are you worried about then if you like your other options? Anyway, its probably a yield protect, LOCI would probably get you off the WL.

that's why you should have said in the first letter what it would take to get you to attend.

What kind of soft factors are you referring to? I disagree for the most part regardless, the only ones being softs that not just anyone can do.

I don't think anyone was saying you were stupid, I think they just disagreed with you. Anyway,

1) Possibly
2) Absolutely
3) Somewhat --> Depends on your major
4) No

Law School Admissions / Submitting an additional letter/LOCI
« on: March 23, 2008, 05:18:17 PM »
Recently, I was WL'ed after being deferred at my #1 choice. I think this is because of an OWI 3 years ago, as my LSAT is 3 points above the 75% and my GPA is above the 25% (big upward trend). When I was deferred, I did send an LOCI. Here is what I planned on doing.

1) Call the state bar --> Ask how an OWI affects admission to the bar.
2) Compose a letter stating --> Response of the bar, continued interest and more specifics on why #1 (I wasn't that specific originally).

It may be redundant to state continued interest however, as I have to fill out a sheet to stay on the waitlist and because I have already sent one when deferred. I would also like to deliver the letter in person and talk to the Dean if possible, however, I'm not sure if they like just being "dropped in" on. Anyways, overall thoughts?

If this is the case I think I would stay in undergrad an extra semester rather than make a very important choice on the basis of something like having spring admissions.

You don't need to go straight in to law school. Get a full-time job and just wait for the acceptances for fall 2009 programs.

In other news, just looked at my waitlist letter (doesn't say why obviously) and it says that I have to notify them in writing of my desire to stay on the waitlist or to be dropped from it. Should I take this opportunity to make it clear that I am still very interested in attending Iowa, etc. I would think this might not even go in my file so I wonder if I should bother. Any experience with this?
