ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

My LSATs were disappointing, given how much studying I did, but they were a 15 and 17 pt increase over my diagnostic. Idk. It's whatever at this point.

I sent my apps in no particular order, if anything, it was just about which app was easier to complete.

---

October 29 - invited to interview at WashU.

November 9 - waitlisted at Alabama. Why'd you waive my CAS fee, exactly?

November 12 - complete interviews at WashU and Northwestern.

November 16 - multiple apps listed as under review including Northwestern, Berkeley, and UCLA, I believe.

November 21 - in at WashU! And an email about a fellowship at Notre Dame, which sounds pretty cool (but no acceptance email from ND)!

November 26 - invited to interview at Cornell.

November 29 - received WashU scholarship email.

November 30 - in at Minnesota via the status checker! $40K/year scholarship to boot!

December 1 - Cornell online interview. Didn't do as well as the Northwestern interview, but still serviceable.

December 10 - sent LOCI to Vandy, they allow you to do this even if you're pending. It was a LOCI/Why Vandy statement.

December 14 - in at Albany! It's a solid option if I want to practice in NYS, particularly upstate (where I'm from).

December 17 - ED dinged by Northwestern. Found out because status checker did not include seat deposit.

January 2 - status checkers: UR at USC, UT, and Berkeley. I already have asked Northwestern to consider me for RD. Filled out that form the day my ED app was dinged.

January 10 - in at BU! Got the call mid-afternoon.

January 14 - donged at Cornell :( by email.

January 15 - MICHIGAN!! HOLY HECC! Via status checker.

Good luck on your applications! I'll be joining in the waiting game after I take the LSAT in a couple of weeks.

Any idea why you were WL at 'bama? Your numbers are pretty strong there.

It's only speculation, but I did send them an email thanking them for the CAS waiver and saying "it made me take a more serious look at Alabama Law." I think they may have read between the lines and figured out that there's next to zero chance I'll actually attend.

Same thing happened to me with Alabama! The only decent school to provide a CAS waiver just to waitlist me!

I wonder if anyone else who got a CAS waiver was waitlisted. It came pretty quickly, too. Idk this reads like yield protecting...
