Thanks.

No.  Not for a waitlist.  If a school actually requested money to be kept on the waitlist I would be convinced the entire application process was a ridiculous sham...although it doesn't seem like we're too far away from that.

I gave them a call.  They're pretty nice about it, but I guess I was justified since I still didn't get that letter yet!

He told me the waitlist had no rank, and they're simply going to reevaluate the applications as spots open up.  Sigh.

I just think the amount of people waitlisted at Southwestern on lawschoolnumbers alone is just nuts!

Anybody entertain the thought to retake the lsat in June in hopes of getting off the waitlist?

Why on earth would you put yourself through that again!  And who knows if it would even hope.  They say the latest LSAT score they would accept is February right?

WL for me, too...weee!

Anyone applying to the SCALE program? Rather odd I was waitlisted, but then days later got a letter for an interview. Is that standard protocol?

Interview??? I haven't heard of the school doing that before. What were your numbers if you dont mind me asking and what did the letter say exactly?

Best of Luck

I think they do interviews for the SCALE program.  Nonetheless, his case is still a little weird.

Weird: Yes

The letter just said that they'd like to complete the SCALE admission process, so they told me to schedule an interview.

I saw the word "admission" and got excited. Anyway...

Not sure what to expect, so...I'll keep you posted.

Somewhere on here I read there were 600+ waitlisters on Southwestern's list.
Can anyone confirm that? If that's true.... :-\ :'( >:( :(
