Speculation as to when we'll see movement? After the May 10th deadline for replying to the 'are you still interested' email, it should be soon. With their rankings drop and the fact that on LSN they don't seem to be doing very well at all with yield compared with previous years or other schools, perhaps they overshot this year and will pull a decent amount from the waitlist?

Let's speculate!

Well this is kind of encouraging if no one else is interested in their waitlist :)

I am!  There was movement a couple weeks ago but at least on LSN the acceptees didn't seem enticed by the offer.  I really hope your speculation is accurate!

Im waitlisted there also. Im hoping that there is movement. As of yesterday I know of two people who were moved off the waitlist and are currently deciding between two schools (Notre Dame and their other choice). That information came from another Law School forum. Hopefully they chose the other school. How much contact are you guys maintaining with the admissions office?

When did they get off the waitlist?

the 14th and 15th of this month. I was in South Bend a couple weeks ago and I was told that they are re-reviewing everyone's file on the waitlist and will then be opening it up..so probably right around now till the end of the month for the first round. I guess a top ten school out east still hadn't made decisions on students and so Notre Dame was seeing if any of theirs were gonna withdraw and head out to that school.

Do you know what their numbers were like?

I got in off of the waitlist a few weeks ago... with a scholarship...
kind of weird.
Anyway, I declined.

A week ago another friend of mine got offered a spot... not sure if there was scholarship or not, I believe she's accepting.

They are moving. ;-)

Congrats on the admit! It seems your numbers in previous years would've gotten you that plus the scholarship but this year...they shot too high. From the looks of it all the new offers thus far have been with scholarship so perhaps they're working their way down the list.

Where are you going, BU?
