Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: UVA Waitlist
« on: July 21, 2006, 11:47:05 AM »
Hey you know what... maybe this is wishful thinking, but I did have a new call on my cell phone yesterday...

Would an adcomm leave a msg?

Dean Trujillo left me a message when I didn't answer. The caller id was "unavailable" so it'd probably either be that or have a 434 area code.

Heard from a friend who is going to be a 1L @ UVA to confirm that most if not all the waitlist movement is being drawn from high LSAT rolling out-of-staters.

I don't see why an incoming 1L would know anything about it. I got in off the waitlist with a high GPA/low LSAT out of state. 3.9/168 avg.

Not to be a downer, but as an admit off the waitlist, my status didn't change until after both the dean had called me and I had called back to accept the offer.

I'm not even entirely sure I'm on the waitlist. The waitlist paper said to send it back in three weeks or something and I sent it in a few days late. Do you suppose they would inform you of being too late?

I'm surprised I haven't gotten one. I haven't sent them anything since getting on the waitlist.

I got in off the waitlist this morning at about 11 with a call from Dean Trujillo. Priority out of state. 3.9/168 (166+170). Still making up my mind. I'm already set for a year off/reapplying, but I'm starting to lean towards coming down to Virginia.

Was anyone else thrown off by that huge envelope? Even though I knew acceptances were about done, it still gave me a slight glimmer of hope.

Law School Admissions / Re: University of Chicago

Anyone have any idea how many people they offer deferred admission to another year to usually? Supposedly they'll be deciding on whether to take me for fall 2007 by tommorrow.

Law School Admissions / Re: Boalt 3/22 email...anybody get a decision?

Called and was rejected. I had really thought that a 168/3.92 from a UC with LOR's from a Boalt Alumni would be good enough. Oh well, perhaps they didn't like the fact that I applied to them in mid-January despite taking the October LSAT and applying to other schools earlier. Or maybe it was something else. Who knows. Best of luck to everyone else. I guess I'll go back to hoping for the Chicago waitlist to work out.

Oh, that's just the way I am, I suppose. It was supposed to be a relatively lighthearted comment though.
Anyway, as the sun begins to set on my chances at Boalt, I suppose it's time for me to begin to come to terms with the probable. A waitlist/rejection will sting, sure, but it won't be the end of the world. Most likely it'll mean not going to law school next year and reapplying, but it's not like Boalt was my dream school anyway. I'm still on my true dream school's waitlist (Chicago) and who knows, they might even offer admission deferred to Fall 2007. If not, a 3.9+/168 should be good enough to get into Michigan if I apply early next year and, honestly, I wanted to go there more from the outset anyway. I'm not really sure why I didn't end up applying there. I didn't really want to have to deal with another year of working at some crappy job, but really, even though I'm very interested in law, odds are being a lawyer won't be roses and gumdrops either. Also between working full time and double majoring in college, I never really had any time to do anything fun. Now, I guess I'll probably have a full year of hanging out with friends, reading books I always wanted to, and practicing tennis. It'll kind of be like a long vacation before entering the real world.

That said, I really would have liked to go to Boalt and if by chance I still get in, I'll probably go. It seems like a fine school and I'm sure I would have enjoyed myself there. Unlike many of the other rejects out there, I won't turn to lame insults such as calling it "Boalttt" after the rejection comes just to make myself feel better. I'll always respect it as an institution and wish those attending best of luck. It's now 3:30 PST. I'm not going to tell you all to give up hope, but I think now is the time to start preparing for what is likely to follow.
