Tell us what's important to you
And not to mention why would the office be telling applicants openly about their plans for the WL. Doesn't seem like something they'd do given how little information they tend to give applicants in general lol
Maybe this is copium and there is an admitted students chat with the admissions officers and they've 100% confirmed that the class is overenrolled but idk I can't trust Reddit comments and neither should anyone here. You never know who is trolling and who is looking to share misinformation to get others to withdraw from the WL.

Def don't withdraw from WL if you don't want to! But I can say that I am in admitted chat and there are definitely wayyyy more than 180 people in there. It started above 300 and slowly dropped before dropping substantially on the deposit deadline date to 250. I was invited to join by admit office so they are the ones who control the list. So it looks like 250 people currently deposited. Wayyy above 180
Ahhh so those posts weren't BSing. Ok. Rip! Ok, thanks for the insight. Even if they don't pull from WL, I wonder how they're going to accomodate a class nearly 40% larger than normal....
@FlynnRoadStar: Did the admit office tell people openly that the class is overenrolled/they don't plan to take ppl from WL? Are they trying to get ppl to defer? Just curious lol
FlynnRoadStar
16:00
I have heard anecdotally from other admits that they have made it SUPER easy to get a deferral! Like in most years they don't allow that many but this year they are allowing it super easily. But no lol they haven't announced anything to us about over-enrollment explicitly

I wonder how law schools miss the mark on their yield projection and over enroll. I guess it's up to chance, the cycle, and applicant pool?
@FlynnRoadStar: Thanks! Last question: is the chat completely maintained by the AO? Do they auto-remove ppl who didn't deposit/withdraw? Or is it on the onus of the applicant to do so?
btw this is complete hopium
I'd love to go to SLS but unless Dean Deal feels like magically doubling the class size it doesn't look good LOL.

@FlynnRoadStar Thanks for being transparent on the current class pool.
FlynnRoadStar
16:04
they auto-remove! i know that from two friends who withdrew and were auto-removed
FlynnRoadStar
16:04
all good guys :) happy to help
Damn ok. Again, what are they going to do re: handling 70+ extra students than normal? That's like several more sections and 1L classes, no?
FlynnRoadStar
16:05
@matchalulu: totally agree it's such a crazy calculus
I wish the office could be transparent and tell applicants the class is full. HLS/YLS are being transparent... SLS clearly isn't lol
FlynnRoadStar
16:06
@TheOneWhoHonk: no clue! we haven't received any official news. I bet a few more folks will defer/defect to HY over the summer. I think the classes have been as high as 200-210 in past years so if they get down to that maybe they're okay?
matchalulu
16:06
Is it possible that some of the 250 in the group chat are AO and current students? I find it crazy they are over by 70 students. Hope that doesn't dilute the 1L experience for those attending.
FlynnRoadStar
16:07
@matchalulu: they told us explicitly it's just admits, it was funny i think they were trying to tell us "say whatever you want there aren't any admit officers here" lol
matchalulu
16:07
@FlynnRoadStar hehe lol
lol
I hope they send out an update soon. Or at least be like Penn and say the class is full
I'll stay on but i hope the SLS office can temper expectations
FlynnRoadStar
16:12
@TheOneWhoHonk: for sure stay on! it can't hurt. and i bet dean deal will release everyone when it's truly a 0% chance
hope so! I'll keep a sliver of hope but thanks for the detailed response, that helps me plan a bit more for the fall

The admitted students chat has over 250 people but the committed students group (which hasn't been mentioned) has about 130 people. Now, there may be more than that given that some admits may not know about the chat but I think it's safe to conclude all 180 seats haven't been filled yet.

I write this to provide some perspective and hope for waitlisted applicants.

Even without this info, I would take the claims that adcoms told students the class is full with a grain of salt. SLS is well known for having an opaque admissions process - people aren't released from the waitlist until the first day of classes. Also, dean deal has been doing this for over 30 years - I'm sure they admitted the amount they did factoring in typical yield rates and expecting to use their waitlist. In the event they overenrolled, there's no way it would be by 50+ students
