Well basically they said that this year they had received many more applicants than last, many of which had outstanding GPA's and LSAT scores. They were putting people with average scores on a "hold" list so they can wait and see who, of the people accepted, decides to accept their admission and mail in their deposit. They did not give me any specific date as to when they will start making decisions on this hold list, they just said that I shouldn't be worried if I'm on it. I suppose this happens every year and they get many students who decide not to attend after being accepted. It is getting pretty unsettling though, being that UM is my first choice and that my application was completed in early December. I suppose i just have to hold my breath for a little longer.
