Re: Yale Waitlist (Class of 2021)

Can someone say what was in the confirmation email? I submitted the WL form and did not get one.

Went UR4 and got a waitlist in quick succession this morning/early afternoon.

Re: Yale Waitlist (Class of 2021)

Checking in. Probably riding this out till the bitter end, though with no expectations. Pretty surprised, given the rest of my cycle, to have gotten the WL.

Re: Yale C/O 2021 Applicants (2017-2018)

is this worth updating yale about? At this stage, my personal thought process would be: 1) New information isn't going to change things in the next 24 hours-- and someone on reddit claims that 24 hours is what we're looking at . 2) If you're looking to ride out the waitlist, you may want to be able...

Re: Yale C/O 2021 Applicants (2017-2018)

I was playing around on LSN and I noticed that the stats of people waitlisted are generally on the very high side, even compared to yale's acceptances, with only a couple outliers; like it looks like the average stats for waitlisted are higher than those accepted; wonder why that is. IMO it is an i...

Re: Yale C/O 2021 Applicants (2017-2018)

I would just like to jump in and say that I am unconvinced by the comments upthread, and continue to be perfectly happy to accept any and all abuse Yale would like to throw at me if it means I still have a chance.

Re: Yale C/O 2021 Applicants (2017-2018)

Totally conjecture with no evidence, but based on the rather sizable "wave" reported on Reddit last night, I think that it was probably the final admit bunch we are going to see. The rest of us are almost certainly headed for ding/WL (though, that was always the case because it's Yale). I could see...

Re: NYU c/o 2021 Applicants (2017-2018 cycle)

Long time lurker Are we sure NYU Law does not average LSAT scores? It says really clearly on their website that they average LSAT scores so I am not sure how that matches what people say that they do not average LSAT scores. My lowest LSAT was a 162 and highest is barely above their 25th so if they...

Am I missing something - why does UVA want the CSS? They don't do need-based aid, right?
Where does UVA say that they want CSS?
It's FAFSA for them not CSS (http://content.law.virginia.edu/financi ... ancial-aid)

Aaaaaand got my hold tight. Such an illustrious club it almost feels good.

Submitted mid Jan, was UR2 by end of Jan, and crickets until today. People with my numbers were >90% at NYU on mylsn. Weird cycle.

Anyone up for reading some tea leaves/answering unanswerable questions? UR1 mid Jan, UR2 1/29, no waitlist, no ding, no sit tight email, no acceptance. That's at least a little weird, right?

I recognize that there is still a long way to go this cycle, but I have some reason to think I may not get the results I would like. What are best practices for reapplying? Should I specifically not withdraw from any schools that I plan on reapplying to? If a school admitted me this year with money,...

Re: UVA Law Students & Graduates Taking Questions

Going straight into a tenure track position out of UVA isn't per se impossible, but it's highly unlikely. That doesn't mean you can't go into academia out of UVA, but it'll typically be through one or several federal clerkships and possibly a stint in another field before transitioning to academia....

40k a year. Honestly crying right now. After all the Columbia nonsense and lack of JS2 (yes I know I sound like a spoiled brat) NYU comes through fucking huge.

edit: comes with the reduction for year three if you earn a SA salary but w/e.
Awesome, congrats!
