Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Rejections for Fall 2007
« on: March 07, 2007, 12:15:23 PM »
Rejected at UGA as well (according to my status checker).

Kinda heartbroken since I was really hoping to at least get a Waitlist from them.  People with my numbers and even lower index numbers gottne waitlisted, so I was hoping for the best.  Alas, disappointed again.

Probably not, unless you go to the admissions office and offer oral favors for everyone

Now, what do you think is the best way to approach them without seeming desperate?

LOL, I've been wondering that too.

If you're a borderline/reach applicant, is it generally a good sign that you don't hear anything for a while even while people around you are getting rejected (accepted?)?

^That's true.  That's also the reason why I applied to so many schools where my chances were... um.. well not good.  I figured I'd get dinged at most, but maybe just one takes a chance, because that's all it takes.  Unfortunately, like I said in my other thread, most (all the ones I got answers from so far) of the schools I thought were "target" Waitlisted me.  So I'm kinda bumbed out.   

But it's not over till it's over, so I'm moving forward.

The past few days have been MOSTLY rejections (at least here and LSN), so maybe I should be thankful I hadn't received anything.

So thanks Emory?

Pookie -- you got into Penn Law.  I know hundreds of kids who would kill for that.  

But still...I know how you feel.  I got into Bama - good school - and I'm waiting on UT - great school.  I think UT is a reach, but it makes me wonder if I could have gotten to any other schools between #43 and #15.  That's a pretty big spread that I left wide open.

Then again...I've seen plenty of people get rejected by target schools.  If I'd applied to every school 15-30, I bet I would have gotten plenty of rejections/WL before getting an acceptance.

We should be happy!  People think we're smart enough to go to law school, and they want us to go to their law schools!

I worried about the same! The schools I applied to are ranked: 4, 11, 12, 14, 16, 17, 22(WL), 26(ding), 27, 32, 43(In), 51, 70, 80(In), Tier4.  Originally I thought I'd gotten a good range (going from ridiculously not gonna happen ---all the way to--- you're most likely in). But now I see big gaps where I keep thinking "what if I had applied..."

But it's gotta stop somewhere!

That is so weird, because I regret not applying to more "mid range", still would've been reaches for me, schools.  I applied to a lot of schools as well, ranging from "obviously not" to "probably yeah, but eh" and some in the middle, but I should've applied to more in the middel.  Oh well.

I think you'll get in somewhere great still.  Don't lose hope.

Wait, how are applicants down and applications up?

Less people applying to more schools?

Law School Admissions / How has this cycle been for you so far?

For me?  I have to say, disappointing. 

I thought I had realistic hopes going into this, but so far I've had nothing but bad news.  The only two schools I got into have been huge safeties.  Anything slightly borderline or even what I thought were targets have been either waitlist or I haven't even heard anything back.

I'm still holding out hopes for some schools I've yet to hear from and of course the ones I got waitlisted at (it's not over till it's over).  But overall, it went worse than I was thinking/hoping/expecting.

Nothing [good] for me today.

As the summer goes on, fewer and fewer people will be willing to change their plans suddenly. As the summer progresses, the waitlist will get smaller. Who knows about the percentage of people who get off waitlists each year, but if your'e willing to hang on until the bitter end, then you have a slightly elevated chance of getting in.

That's me.  I am willing to suffer as long as it takes, if it gets me a spot at a school I want.  Yeah, I would love to have all the chips infront of me now, but that's not happening.  So, since I don't have a family or kids, no obligations, I'm free for all, lol.
