I received the wait list letter on Saturday, April 24th. I submitted my application online the last week in February. I expected a rejection letter from them. My GPA is 3.0 and my LSAT score is a miserable 149. I overcame significant challenges that i mentioned in my Personal Statement and my LORs are pretty good. I guess that helped.
I'm a African-American female but really I hope that wasn't the only reason they waitlisted me instead of rejecting me because there was so much more to my application. I was President of my sorority and involved in it for almost 4 years. For the last year I've been a judicial extern in the Los Angeles Superior Courts through a program at my University. I've worked since my senior year in high school and had two jobs for a while. I majored in English and minored in Pre-Law. I was accepted at Whittier so unless I get into Pepperdine somehow that's where I'm going.
SpeakerDave, you haven't been accepted yet to any T2 or T3 schools? With 3.35/161? Do you have a contagious disease or something? Damn. I fear for what the 2005 admissions year holds for me.
