If you're still on a waitlist now, is it a lost cause?  SNUGGLE wants to know.

I received a rejection today from UW-Madison, which stated that they held out until the classes began to see who showed up.  I guess they are just overbooked.  The letter states, "we strongly encourage you to apply next year", which is what I will do.  Oh well.  I have a friend who was offered a spot three years ago five days after classes began.  Good luck - who knows? :)

SNUGGLE I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you are screwed. Your best bet is to get high grades during 1L and transfer in, of course mentioning the fact that you were waitlisted initially. It'll work out.

DOWNY DOWNY DOWNY...

SNUGGLE expected more from you.  SNUGGLE was merely being helpful in pointing out that those who are still posting to the waitlist page are NEVER going to get in at this point and should quit now.  SNUGGLE by the way has been attending classes in Madison and they are FULL.  No more places to stack the bodies...

SNUGGLE was going to dump on DOWNY some more, but feels that DOWNY realizes his error and that beerand pretzels has covered anything else that needed to be said. 

That said, anyone still posting to the waitlist board should give up their prospects and go apply at Cooley.  SNUGGLE hears they will still take anyone, plus missing the first 3 months of classes won't hurt your grades there.  Now if you are the rare loser actually on a Cooley waitlist, you might want to step back and reflect on where you are in life and discuss alternate career options with your shrink.  Good luck!

If you're on a Cooley waitlist you might want to save time and money by skipping the therapy. Go directly to the suicide part and don't leave a note because no one will miss you anyway.
