GMU said they could wait until the first day of class to make admissions off the waitlist. Which obviously doesn’t make sense.

I still haven’t heard from gmu either, being PT I’m pretty anxious that orientation is literally tomorrow
JDMayBJG
14:53
I wonder if they’re waiting to see if a few people don’t show up for orientation and then make decisions on the waitlist based on that

Just applied to Arizona State. Applications opened today for 2023, and I had all my stuff ready for today. They already waive their fees for everyone, plus I got a fee waiver from LSAC themselves. My chances aren't high, but I'm really proud of myself for applying.
Good luck @Datzookman!
