Was anyone removed from the waitlist?
my ugpa is a 2.70 is there still hope for me?
@QuickBestGibbon: you have a good LSAT score, if you can write a good meaningful transcript addendum there is definitely hope.
Where are the dates of these posts shown?
Hoping the fact that I have 10 years of work experience makes up for some terrible decisions I made at 18 that killed my UGPA
@CollapsedRat: With that LSAT score and the school's you're applying to, I'd say you're looking at all acceptances :-)
