Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
yeah they said that last year its just their typical bs response
not small at all lol
no change on status or email here
ugh this is frustrating
so there's a diff between "priority WL" and "WL" for uga? For those who had priority - what did your email say?
App and Person ID disappeared ://
Anyone on Priority WL
I gave myself an end of March deadline, so UGA is on my waitlist until then
"your request for admission has been denied" lmao why does it say it like that
also no email is whack
WL with 180 lsat
i withdrew a few minutes after getting the email
admitting almost no one between your 25th and 75th is wack
[] FluffyHesitantOwl
the lsat v gpa chart looks identical to last year. huge stop at 168
Ok but did ANYONE get an A yesterday?? If they were going to do this to all of us they might as well have not even sent a hold email smh
yeah i dont think there were As yesterday
@professionalpickme: we will see if it bites them, schools have been weird this cycle but i have a feeling many will struggle to hold onto medians
@CarelessLittleHummingbird: yeah no As on Wednesday I'm hoping for As today because this is when they do Undergrad As so maybe they'll line it up
If no decisions are released today I would expect next week to be the last wave, and then they will trickle in as the semester winds down.
But hopefully because they are releasing undergrad decisions today that they might have some movement but it could go either way…
booo UGA
I'm a little skeptical about what a priority waitlist sounds like. I was placed on it today but idk a good reason why a school would have 2 different waitlists of different levels. Any ideas?
Cause it seems like to me it just gives waitlisted people a bigger hope to get in the school and thus a higher chance for people on the priority WL to attend if admitted.
Idk if that makes sense but it's just odd to me
bye = 88
Here we go again

UR2 3/26
