Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
i hope so
May is over
Why is there no deadline to get back to us WL applicants? I need to make life plans and sign a lease
Is there any hope for further movement?
@CarelessLittleHummingbird: there is always hope.
they will begin soon
Do you guys have a set date to draw the line with this WL and make plans for an A school?
I’m going to call it on July 1st
Where the movement at
UGA's second deposit deadline was June 1. So, we might expect something in the next week or two?
I’m crossing my fingers for an NDLS A to console myself over a UGA R, or vice versa. If they both dong me the same week I’ll die
@Fatbear747: You already got Emory and Fordham. You have access to two amazing big law markets. Chin up, fam :)
(sorry if that came across as invalidating btw)
You’re fine! I know I have great options; just my ego really wants to emerge from this process without bruises.
I really hope we get something soon, I'm tryna buy new school merch. My undergrad sucked at sports lol
Just got an email about being a "select number of students remaining"
@Crossword607: same. I’ll play their game because I’m in-state, but cmon know UGA, y’all need to release us from purgatory already
*cmon now
I dont know how long I should hold out given I have to sign a lease soon
@LegallyBlonde925: same, and I absolutely cannot afford my current apartment in Atlanta once I drop down to PT
did they send everyone the select number of students email lmao
has anyone heard anything
Nope, but my status checker had another fun nonupdate update today 0712 with the communications suddenly reappearing again
Lol the fact that UGA had essentially a hard last cutoff of 168
Out here looking at that insane gap between their 25th and median on the 509, wondering who tf are these sub-168 admits
Rejected from Hold—>priority WL. No email yet, just status checker. Notes about the process in my profile. I’m baffled, a lil, because a very similar LOCI was successful at UNC and Fordham.
But UGA looked at my LSAT and said “pass”
UGA may have a hard 169 cutoff but I'm built different
