Hi! I dont want to give anyone false hope, I just want to share my experience...Here is what I believe helped me get off the waitlists: I sent an addendum to my application to each school, I called an asked to speak with deans of admission at each school and made sure that they were aware that their schools were high on my list...finally, i have a really great relationship with the pre-law advisor at my undergrad institute and i know that she called the schools for me...just to tell them i was someone that she would recommend...I hope this helps!!! Best of luck to you all!!!

Just depends on the school, I guess, and how many acceptance offers they send out vs. actual seats.

I was waitlisted at Wisconsin.  They also have the "hold" roster of students who have priority over the regular waitlist.  Add to that no $ seat deposit....What's the point?
