its going to be you bro
anybody else on here freaking out after the april lsat lmao
does anyone know when they release the quartile ranking?
I wonder if they're just going to skip publishing the WL quartile rankings? Its not that I expect to get off the WL or something but it would still be nice to know how far off I was!

What are people thinking in terms of waitlist acceptance rate this year?
21:14
based on the stats here, they probably accepted 20 people off the waitlist last year. but with the issue that happened this year, i expect that many more seats will be vacant

I wish lsdata had quartile info. I already live in the Bay Area and I’m getting ready to move across the country soon to go to Cornell. Just found out I’m in the first quartile

🫠 fun times. I really want to go to Berk but it’ll suck so bad if I move only to have to come back and find housing. Not complaining, just wish time worked differently lol

I'm in the first quartile as well. Sounds like everyone is.
If there are 1000 and shrinking on the waitlist that's less than 250 in Q1, so if they take 20 from Q1 odds aren't looking impossible.
12:25
First quartile!!! I'm so confused as to the likelihood of getting in

Maybe we are just hoping for something that will never happen

Anybody get off WL?

No, it's not going to happen, lol.

Apparently you’re not convinced of that either given that you’re checking as well 😉
LegallyAmerican
17:17
Taking it for granted that mere checking infers not convinced.

JK, I hope it happens!
has anyone gotten off the waitlist or heard anything?
22:25
Nothing yet
2 people on reddit posted that they got in off the waitlist
