On tuesday I wrote an email to the director of law admissions, 3 hours later I got a call from him... and got in! He said they were looking at 4 apps and mine was one of them, he never mentioned the email or responded to it, but I can't help but think that it might have given me a little extra push. Good luck to everyone!

How likely is it that admissions would call to say you have been rejected from the WL??  I got a call today from admissions asking me to call back, but they were gone for the day by the time I got the message.  Does this mean I am likely in?

I can safely say that that is what it means... you're in... what school???

One of my classmates here got a call from UC-Davis this afternoon and was admitted off the waitlist. She promptly withdrew and headed to the airport. So there is still at least *some* hope for you guys!

This has certainly been a very strange year as far as waitlists are concerned. I don't really expect they'll follow patterns from last year. That's not to say things aren't gonna move, but I've kind of lost faith in LSN as a good predictor of, well, anything. I certainly can't believe what a hard time Stanford seems to be having filling their class. They've lost like 33% of their waitlist offers; not a good conversion percentage I don't think. And to think, all they'd have to do is call me and they'd have a guaranteed student...oh well...
