If you were waitlisted and didn't get the email, then there's no question that the staff there are being totally underhanded. I guess the ethically ambiguous terrain of the legal industry runs under even the admissions offices of the law schools. Unbelievable.
I wish you the best of luck and hope you get in. I won't trust a word Wash U says about the transfer situation after my experience on the wait list. I'm not even sure I really want to go there anymore. I'm thinking I'll try to do really well and aim even higher, maybe for a T14.
