Waitlisted at GMU and GWU... Frustrating, no?  I'm sending a few more recs to GWU since that's my first choice and I'm sending a letter of my own.  Keeping my fingers crossed, but I guess we'll see.

As is it seems like I'm going to end up at Maryland... no int'l law program though... blah!

WL'd at GW and W&M. I'm sending them a "thanks but no thanks" e-mail later in the week. I wait for no one.

I've been waitlisted at Northeastern and Lewis & Clark.  In both cases I sent a letter reaffirming my
strong interest, and proclaiming that their school
is a top-choice school for me.  I also enclosed an additional LOR, just to leave a more favorable impression...not sure how effective this is, though...

I was waitlisted at GMU and AU.  Two years ago, GMU would have been a back-up.  I got into Tulane but am not to thrilled about the high tuition and bad neighborhood. 

I am trying for GMU.  Not so sure about AU.

Waitlisted at Pitt, W&M, and WashU.  I'm staying on all three lists since they are all provide better opportunities than the schools I am in at.
