Surely students who submit LOCI are prioritized over those who don’t

GULC runs its waitlists like Eminem writes his rhymes. They start out simple, and then get rewritten into some lyrical miracle for real-icle material like cereal for the venereal... and yes, you should stop paying attention at some point and pick something else.
idk apparently GULC has a tier list of the people they waitlist

GILC is different bc they have two waitlists

But generally won’t writing a LOCI help
Paid my deposit at UC Irvine yesterday. I'm done with all 7 waitlists

@ClassyPleasantHeron: bars

If you're a yield protection WL that they would love to admit, but don't believe they can enroll because you'll get into better schools, they say you're super duper special and maybe a few more such applicants stay on the waitlist and write a "please admit me I'll do anything I'll pay sticker I love GULC way more than I should" email instead of saying "fuck y'all" ans withdrawing

dean andy said it in his information session! he indicated they pull from all 3 waitlists depending on who they are looking for - LOCIs do help!

@Ijustwannagetinman: you're writing LOCIs for practice so that you can become a better writer.

(We haven’t met yet) (it’s unclear if he exists)
17:02
no one can tell you if you're going to get off a WL, but writing a LOCI generally helps because the school knows you still want to go there
17:03
No, write your LOCIs. Those are a data point that indicates higher odds of accepting a waitlist admit (lower risk to the school's yield)
17:03
a LOCI certainly won't hurt
17:05
This is almost entirely independent of the "reward" (filling some bucket they want more represented in their incoming class, whether it's high GPA, high LSAT, URM, FGLI, veteran, STEM, a particular type of work experience or legal interest) but that part depends on who else commits (out of your hands) and your profile (set in stone at this point)
17:06
it is why some people retake the LSAT to increase their WL chances if they don't want to do another cycle
17:06
Unless you retake the LSAT and raise your score to/over a school's median, or win some Preßtigious fellowship or award, both hard to do in the next month

@Ijustwannagetinman: I have been working on one LOCI for weeks knowing its my only remaining shot at improving my file! idk if this helps but hopefully it reassures you that your hard work is not for nothing and that others are doing this alongside you!
