For some reason the link says it expired both times I’ve tried
How often do people get off the WL at Chicago-Kent? I'm not very optimistic considering it seems that a lot of people want to go there
13:12
just went UR for a third (?) time
any known waitlist movement?
For what it's worth, I got off the waitlist last year. They let me know the weekend before the semester started. It was very generous, but no scholarships were offered. Put my deposit down, deferred my attendance for a year, retook the LSAT, and got 120k in scholarship. Waitlist movement happens, but dont go into crazy debt for it
This is so important^ ty for that <3
