Anyone else waitlisted at Houston?
« on: January 29, 2006, 02:51:41 PM »
I haven't found a whole lot about the waitlist at UH doing searches (both on this board and the net) but basically, I'm going to do everything I can to get in since I only want to attend UH (see reason below).

I got my waitlist letter on friday in a regular thin white envelope.  Anyone else waitlisted this year? Or waitlisted at UH in years past and have more information or advice? Thanks for any help!

I just got a letter from UofH, advising that I'm waitlisted...didn't apply until early February, though.

Hi Karleana, I was applying for the full time program, so I'm not sure how much help this will be - but I know when I was in your position I wanted any advice I could get! I received a call in late June offering me a position. I wouldn't get too discouraged if you don't hear anything right away - from about March through June they told me there were "looking at WL applicants this week". As long as you're sending letters and staying in contact, that is all you can do. Also, I've met a pretty big handful of people who were accepted after me - so they do accept right up until the last few weeks before class starts.  Best of Luck!

thanks wannabe. I just emailed them again. Being on the waitlist for the part-time prgram is driving me nuts. Orientation is in May, and classes start at the end of May also! My LSat scores are not too high, my GPA is decent...I just don't know what to think. I guess Ill have to play the waiting game...

Yea I am waitlisted as well and I am trying to get in off the waitlist. I just sent my deposit in to SMU this past Monday. If I will not find something out from UHLC till late June then I will be losing a good $400 to SMU. Wannabe1L, I was curious what did you do to get off of the waitlist and be admitted, especially that early in the waitlist game.

hey I want to write a letter of continued interest, but I dont know how to start it! Should i do the general "to whom it may concern:" or "Dearest Admissions Committee, " (that one is a little cheesy for my taste) or to "To Whoever holds My Law Future in My hands:" LOL...Any suggestions?

For my letter I am addressign Dean Hammers and the admissions committee since she was the one who sent me my waitlist letter or at least signed it.

Hey Karleana, have you heard anything recently from UH.

I spoke with a lady on the phone yesterday and they basically take your file like it is brand new and review it against the other applicants in the waitlist pool and start filling in spots that way. Thwy should begin the reviews in the next week or so.

I am sending my LOCI no later than the beginning of next week. She saidthey will take mail or email submissions for anything new.
