MMhhm. Same here. I am really dragging my feet about packing and moving since my #1 is in the town I currently live in.

I think if I don't here back, I am going to wait a year(I can't make my mind dammit), and re-take the LSAT :(  What are they doing!? they need to hurry...

At this point, I think almost all schools are finished with 99%-100% of their waitlist acceptances. Now we are waiting for the one kid at HYS to drop out, creating a cascade of withdrawals and acceptances.

Obviously, the one kid doesn't have to go to HYS, but the effects of a single withdrawal will only impact schools below.

Acceptances now are in the "miracle' category.

Is that based on observation? I've always wondered how the breakdown on WL movement goes-- you don't think there is a good amount of endgame movement?

Well, obviously I haven't been paying attention to all schools. The ones I have been tracking do the overwhelming majority of their waitlist acceptances by the end of June. After that, there are a few more (usually one a few days before classes start) and that's it.

I am sure all schools are not the same. What have you guys been seeing? I would love a ray of hope.

I don't think I can wait the 2 weeks I stated earlier... I am seriously freaking out.  I am gonna call tomorrow and check my status.  I need something, anything.

Vjm, Even that I am very frustrated of waiting, but I have heard a lot of schools waiting lists start moving in July. (since the deadline for the snd deposit for most of the schools were mid June) My friend last year got off her wait list on Aug 3?! so there are still hope...However someone needs to give me hope because I am going insane :'(...I don't even know how my days go by anymore...and I have to move if I get in, so this is really killing me because I don't know how to move in a short notice....well lets hope for a good news today!
