I'm waitlisted too (LSATs 157 and 167, GPA 3.13). Just received my letter in the mail yesterday. Where are the rest of the schools, I'm waiting to hear from 9!


Accepted: Tulane, American, Brooklyn, DePaul, Loyola (New Orleans)
WL: W&L
Rejected: Texas, Georgetown, George Washington, U Washington

Yup, got mine on Friday. The interesting thing though is that the WL is not ranked.

It's actually quite rare for a school to rank WL applicants. Some divide students into regular and priority WLs, but for the most part it is unranked at most schools. I know WashU ranks its WL but that's about it.

Will Wash U. tell you where you are on the list?  I plan to call tomorrow to ask if they will divulge the info and also tell them I have sent in my sheet to request staying on.

I don't know the specifics on WashU. A fellow intern I lost contact with was waitlisted at WashU last year and he mentioned that it was ranked. I have no idea what the outcome was or if he ever got off.

Im on  8 waitlists, including W and L. Anyone else notice how W and L's waitlist info sheet was, word for word, almost exactly identical to UVA's? Whats up with that?

i didn't apply to UVA, but W&L was the only school that said to let them know if W&L is your #1 school, and you would go in an instant...

so i'm definitely taking a visit this week, and am going to meet with the asst. director of admissions and take a tour. they were really nice, i just e-mailed the dir. of admissions who signed my WL letter and she responsed very quickly.

I'm really hoping it's as close to a formal interview as they can get!  Good luck.  Looking forward to my visit too.

absolutely loved this from the FAQ

"Is there anything I can do to enhance my chances?"
short of eliminating those who have accepted offers, probably not.

Loved it.

On LSN there is almost an identical number of people who were rejected and placed on the WL
