Boulder Waitlist - They were my "safetyish" school
« on: March 23, 2005, 09:11:19 AM »
I know I got WL b/c my GPA was under their 25th %, but I was hoping the first school I heard from would at least be an acceptance!  Damn. 

Good news is that they made 46 offers off the waitlist last season.   

Bad news is that they were made from May through the first day of orientation!

One of my friends got in off the waitlist one week before classes started. Yikes.  But it's still something.  I'm curious as to why you thought CU was a safety, though.  Your 163 puts you one point above the median BUT if you're out of state (I don't know that you are), I would throw the median out the window since 55% of their class has to be in state.
My LSAT was a bit lower than yours, but I was surprised by my acceptance. I didn't think it was a given by any stretch.  If you want to get in, though, I say you're in good shape.  Let them know you're still interested.  Best. :)

LOL. If they waitlist you, I will s*it bricks.  You're not going there anyway, so what do you care?

Yes, and ultimately it's a matter of justice.
