Does anyone have any advice for increasing the chance of getting off of a waitlist? My acceptances for this year are not so good, and with rejections from Temple, Villanova and Drexel, I'm hoping I can move off the Rutgers WL so I don't have to relocate or take a year off entirely. I know that sending a LOCI or something is usually a good idea, but the only thing I could offer is that my final semester senior grades were excellent, and the GPA I've maintained for the last two years is considerably higher than the cumulative GPA I was forced to advertise to the schools I applied to. I think that is a strong indication that the upward trend in my academic progress is likely to continue in law school.
(EDIT - Cumulative undergrad GPA moved from 3.27 to 3.30, but semester GPA was high 3.6 with Dean's List, where it's been for two years. Had a couple bad semesters at the beginning that hurt me.)
Failing that, would I have better chances if I offered to attend the part-time programs? As terrifying as spending an evening in Camden is, I can't imagine seats are as competitive.
Thanks for the input,
