my numbers are 169/3.65. I sent an LOCI March 20th by mail. and then I sent an email in response to the 4/25 email. I applied FT - got PWL letter dated 2/14.

Do we know if everyone on the PWL got the email last week or not everyone? was it just a routine thing?

GUlC has seemed pretty LSAT centric lately... not good for my chances...

Just stopping by to say good luck to all of you waiting for some action :)

And I'll add my $.02 to the waitlist theories:  now that they've received the first round of deposits, they will see where they're lacking (LSAT, GPA, diversity, etc) and accept those who round up the class nicely in that area, so at this point it's hard to say if they'll take those with high LSATs, high GPA, or whatever else. But the pattern should become more or less obvious once they actually start making decisions.

Fantastic! Your post does sound eerily authoritative, though. Care to explain why? Inside info? Did you do THIS?

(I deleted a stupid movie joke which would sound pretty nasty if you didn't get the reference).  PM me if you want details, they're not particularly salacious.

Yikes.  I didn't receive anything.  Eager to see how this all plays out.
