How Do I Get Off the Waitlist?
« on: May 15, 2006, 03:23:45 PM »
I just got waitlisted at a t3.  This is the place I want to go, what are some effective strategies to get off the waitlist and into one of the seats in this year's class?

Basically all you can do is send a letter of continued interest. Then also schedule a tour of the lawschool and ask to speak to the admissions director during your tour. Finally if the school you've been waitlisted at has a part-time program, ask to be considered for that.

But really its a crap shoot to get off the waitlist. Good luck!

What school were you waitlisted at by the way? You can go to lawschoolnumbers.com and look at last year's applicants to see how many were waitlisted and what percentage got off the waitlist.
