UC Hastings said they don't do anything with their waitlist until June or July.  Can anyone refute that?  I want someone to tell me that I was just given the company line?

I don't think youll have anyone move off waitlist just yet, as acceptances are still being sent out, but thats a good question and this thread should be kept alive, especially when it becomes more pertinant.
cheers

I have been waitlisted at University of Maryland and they have told me they will begin reviewing their waitlist every two weeks after May 1st.

I have also been waitlisted at Penn State Dickinson and they have also told me the same thing.  However on lawschoolnumbers.com, there is an individual who posted that he/she was waitlisted at Dickinson and then accepted off of the waitlist. 

Who knows.  I can only hope to get into one of these schools as they are my 1st and 2nd choice.

Question for all those on waitlists:

Assuming that the school you are waitlisted at is your first choice, are you guys sending in a "safety" deposit at another school and waiting to the bitter end to see if you get off the waitlist?   I am just wondering what the procedure is for sending the deposits (i.e. is it binding?).

Yes I am planning on giving a deposit to a sfety school (im waitlisted at Notre Dame) chances of getting off a waitlist anywhere are not great,  - <50% for sure. Deposits aren't binding except you lose your money, although if you change your mind early enough after giving the deposit some schools will refund some/all of your money. Im going to wait as looong as possible because I really I have my hearst set on ND (unless I get in to GW - which is not gonna happen :-\)

 I'm on the Wake wait list :( (2.9/160)...I'm visiting the school this monday and getting a tour, I'm sending three more recs, writing a continued interest letter and I'm getting at least a 3.75 this winter quarter. Think this will help? ANY WITH INFO ABOUT WAKE PLEASE RESPOND! I wanna go there so bad.

I was waitlisted at Boston University with a 163/3.74. I sent in a letter telling them that they were my first choice (this was somewhat b/s as I sent the same letter to GWU) and I was accepted within a week. Suckas.

Odes,

I notified Wake yesterday that I am withdrawing from their list to attend Boalt.  Best of luck to you.  I think that the continued interest letter and the new recs will definitely work in your favor.
