your list says Washington U... so is it Wash U in St. Louis? or University of Washington in Seattle?

congrats in any case.

April 15. I just declined today so that's one spot, hopefully. Good luck.

congratulations. crack one open and kick your feet up--you're going to law school!

The better they know you, the better off you will be. That much is obvious. In most cases, though, professors know you only from the work you've submitted and the times they've seen you in office hours. Make sure you talk to them, give them your resume and some other highlights of your career, and maybe some interesting things they could mention. It can't hurt. If they don't want to use it, they won't.

One of my recommenders, who knows me very well, remarked, "This will be easy--I actually know you!"

Crown has greasy burgers and some good tacos--what more do you need? ;) Anyway, I'm grumpy after work and what I need is beer.

Not sure if I can make it but I'll try.

should we convene an LSD meeting at the Cactus?

Anastasia, I think it's pretty crappy you didn't get in. Still, speaking as someone who's also been on the UT campus for a long time, I think you'll probably really appreciate the change in scenery and the different vibe at a new school. It's going to be a great experience and after a couple of months you'll have few regrets.

Just got mine too...not sure how I feel about this :-\. I knew it was a reach, did you guys get an attachment with your email? I didn't and it gave me the impression that a form was attached...oh man

Does anyone know when they start considering their waitlist?

From the FAQ:
 We have no set timeframe for making waitlist decisions, because we may learn of unexpected withdrawals at any time between May and August that require us to fill a seat. (We do not anticipate making any offers to waitlisted candidates prior to late April, at the earliest.) That said, important triggers are our two deposit deadlines, April 30 and June 15, and our summer-start and fall-start orientations, May 31 and August 31. Shortly after all of those dates, we have much more solid data about how many students plan to join us, and we accordingly use that information to make offers and/or to release people from the waitlist.

good luck.

oh, and I should also have said that with your numbers I would expect you to get accepted at some of your other schools as well. good luck!
