Got Dean Cornblatt's not so subtle e-mail acceptance on 4/26 from GULC.  I was admitted for 2006 and put on the preferred waitlist back in march.  I pretty much just responded to their waitlist offer by telling them to consider me and saying i would like to go.  Sent an e-mail checking in recently, but I never sent them anything new in terms of letters (recommendations or begging  :) ).  Go Hoyas!  Hoyas are gonna infest your garden! (scary scary mascot there....)

Lol, you people are crazy.  Schools don't think you have committed to attend just because you accepted a spot on the waitlist.  How crazy would it be to expect you to say yes even though they have essentially informed you that you are probably not getting in, and if you do get in, it will be whenever they feel like it.

Even sending deposits is not sketchy, and i am sure schools are plenty happy getting to keep your 250 dollars and letting some other person in.  The only thing I would consider morally questionable is promising to attend a school when you don't really mean it.  Not that everybody doesnt do that anyways.  Remember, you are just a set of numbers to them, don't bother feeling sympathy for law schools.

"Don't forget to try Rutgers' Fat Sandwiches.  I recommend 'Fat Dyke.'  It'll clog your arteries, but it is delicious."

Alas, the Fat Dyke is no more.  Along with some others like the Fat female dog, the Fat Dyke was removed from the trucks after pressure form the LGBT community.  All of us Rutgers students were appalled at the insane lack of respects for our traditions.

Really annoyed me since i spend all this time trying to convince people that gay marriage should be allowed because of my feelings about human rights.  Glad to see the LGBT community at Rutgers is expending energy getting rid of sandwiches that "foster an atmosphere of discrimination."  Look LGBT community, you live in New Brunswick community, not the south, quit with the frivolous complaints that marginalize you as a group.

Oh, and that is a tough decision you got there, man. Since most people on waitlists don't get off, maybe you won't have to worry about it anyways (this is me trying to be positive, believe it or not).  Either way don't stress now since it is out of your hands.

Schools do play the not-so-subtle e-mail acceptance game, including GULC.  If you want someone more credible to ask about that, there is always Bachante.  As for the OP, the complete lack of details and numbers probably does indicate it is not true and he has done nothing to chance that as of yet.

Hey, i know how you feel about turnin down some good money.  15 grand from Fordham and the chance to live in the city I really want to be just for a 2006 admission and a waitlist to GULC. Thankfully, I got an e-mail from Dean Cornblatt around 4 o'clock yesterday.  Did he also use the line about not being able to give a decision but you would be pleased, with the "(subtle enough)" parenthetical?

Heh, i figured that was the responce i would get since i have never posted before just like the OP.  Well, you can believe what you you like about mine, but I am as curious as you in regards to whether that story is true.  It doesn't seem to be, obviously, but the resemblance to how I got notified still makes me wonder.

While I agree that the above poster sounds fishy, I wanted to add something to the conversation.  I was placed on the preferred waitlist at georgetown and admitted for 2006.  I received an e-mail just recently that sounds very much like the one the OP claims to have received. The first paragraph:

I am e-mailing you today with some news from Georgetown Law Center. 
Our policy does not allow us to give decisions by e-mail, but I can
say this--when you receive your letter today, I feel certain you will
be pleased (subtle enough?).

Kind if a dumb policy since there is no way to take that as anything but a decision, but i suppose they can do what they like, i don't really care.  So, while the overturned rejection thing does seem out of wack, it does seem that it is either true, or the OP at least knows someone that got this e-mail.  Regardless, I am elated without being confused since i would have waited out the year rather than settle.

This is my first post, but I have been lurking since December and never really felt like I had anything productive to add until now.  Very happy to be goin to law school next year (let the deposit deadlines pass on some other schools on purpose.)
