Hi all,

Any update on FB group numbers?

Thanks!
246 but too lazy to do the breakdown (my estimate is 220 admits or thereabouts?)

Curious: does that count the current 1Ls on the page?

Excellent point! I don't think it does - there are at least 2 1Ls who are just general members. So something between 233 - 220?

There's not much I can do, but I wish you peace and sanity in what must be an excruciating wait :)

A friend who was admitted looked at the two new members' profiles and told me that at least one of them isn't a WL admit, though.

I called and asked about the status of their waitlist - they said there are quite a few spots available and they're about to start reviewing the waitlist again - don't know what this really means for all of us but hopefully it's something good

x2 - I’m sure there won’t be much movement past now given the date, but has there been any in the FB group? Thanks all for any help :)

Given that lil_lawyer heard that there were spots available, do you all think that they admitted folks who didn't post?

It gives me anxiety that there's no anxiety on this thread anymore. Glad I'm not the only one who hasn't given up!

I for sure have not given up, but it seems pretty unlikely at this point doesn’t it? Though I thought for sure at least one of us here would make it off

No point in giving up! :)

I do think it’s slightly odd that we haven’t heard anything, but given the application numbers this year, they could be taking next to no one... or they could be moving slower than normal. Who knows!

Anyone have the guts to call admissions?

A friend of mine called recently. He said that they told him that they haven’t let in anyone off the waitlist yet but that they expect to!

Whaaaat?!?! Earlier in the thread, someone claimed that YLS said they already started pulling from the WL...

FYI -- at least a few people were admitted yesterday off the waitlist. Can provide more specifics/my stats over PM. Seems like if people turn down offers (I'm planning to accept) they could make more mid-next week.
