Wait List @ Pitt...SWEET!!!!
« on: April 14, 2005, 02:20:26 PM »
I applied to Pitt thinking that i had no chance in hell of getting in. And that may still be true, a wait list is not an acceptance. But it's good to know that i will not be kicked to the curb out-right. Schools don't put people (who have lower numbers) on the waitlist for nothing, right? This put me in a good mood for today. If Pitt wait listed me, then maybe Villanova will accept me...hmmm....i wonder. Well, i still have seven more schools to hear from, so wish me luck and the same to all you out there.

By the way, i got my wait list by email today, and i applied in middle-late feb in case anyone was wondering.

Very true.  I know somebody who was accepted off Pitt's waitlist a couple years ago and this person is doing really well at the law school.  I think you might have a decent chance if you express your interest in the school.  Susan Estrich's book, "How to get into law school" has a good section on this.

Congrats!!! I'm right there with you. I feel so impatient though. Let's keep our fingers crossed.   ;)

Ragnar, are you Norwegian?  I had a friend from Norway named Ragnar.  That should count for something for law school admissions...

Thanks SleepyGuy, i'll check out that book...and Ragnar Danneskjold is the name of a great character in one of Ayn Rands books (Atlas Shrugged). I'm not norwegian, though i have been to that area (Denmark). They lost my whole wardrobe, so it's kind of a sore point for me. :'(

Thanks Violet, i'll cross my b*lls if it will get me in...lol :D

Well I just told them I won't be attending, so hopefully that will free up a spot for you. It's a great school but they didn't offer me any money and I'm out of state, so it's a little too steep for me. I'm waitlisted at a couple places too so I know how you feel ... just keep following up with them and send them regular updates during the summer. Good luck!

Let us emphasize that someone, in this very thread, offered to cross their balls.
