Choosing the Right Law School / Re: fee waiver

You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts. Brooklyn's printed fee waiver policy clearly indicates that they honor the LSAC fee waiver.

"Bklyn used to have 2 wait lists a few years ago: a primary and a secondary. "

They still have two WLs..earlier applicants are put in spring waitlist and some of them ( along with nonadmits/nonrejects who applied late)are moved to summer wl in may-june.

"It is also a strategy for Bklyn/cardozo to waitlist a certain percentage of students who they are sure will attend (thus lowering their yield, because waitlists aren't reported to USNews, which un turn affect their "Selectivity" numbers)".

Your logic here is flawed.Basically US NEWS sees three numbers--how many applied, how many admitted, how many enrolled...once admitted, whether directly by adcom or from waitlist, it's an admit, it counts in the numbers for US News and that's it.

In any case, a friend was told today that Brooklyn is overenrolled and that there's been no wl movement for about 10-12 days.So he's stuck on wl and doesnt want commute to outer boroughs.But two I know got offers last week--with money!--from Cardozo. Go figure!

why do you guys think it was cardoza?

most school track this kind of basic data.
when i did admissions undergrad years ago we did this weekly--to determine how our year was going. we also tracked where apps came from (which hs) and what the SATs were..to determine who was applying and from where.
call any law school admissions office and talk to an official...not a secretary--chances are they'll know how far up or down they are and the relative stats this year to last.
