Two questions about waitlists
« on: April 02, 2007, 11:23:34 PM »
I have been WL at Howard and Richmond.  I spoke with the Richmond Dean and she encouraged me to retake the LSAT in June.  The Howard Dean was a litle indifferent.  Overall I was wondering if it is common for WL candidates to take the June LSAT in hopes of admission?  Also will increasing my LSAT score help in the event that I may transfer after my first year?

Couldn't hurt if you think you'll do better

How exactly did you talk to the Richmond Dean? Did you call her directly or what? Just curious.

So is it common for people on WL to take the June LSAT?

Great...this means I should probably retake the LSAT, too.  Unfortunately, my waitlists outnumber yours - I'm on SIX.
Are you going to take a class?  The first time around, I had a tutor, but with the new section on the June LSAT, I have no clue as to how to study for this!!

Depends on the schools.  Most schools go to their waitlists 2 weeks or so after admissions deposits... and then release folks.  So if you're signing up for an LSAT, just know that you may be released from the waitlist by then.
