Yeah I don't think they can hear what you say if you don't explicitly record it. I'm guessing its more your first option mixed with maybe extracurriculars. Hope you get off the WL or get into another one you really like. I also got WL'd, I applied late and didnt have the LSAT score so I'm thinking of retrying the LSAT and applying here next year

I doubt it's my extracurriculars. At probably every other school where I've been waitlisted or rejected, I think it's always been my LSAT score, which is good but below median at every T14. Here, though, the LSAT median is lower, and I've gotten into schools with the same or a higher LSAT median. So, I don't think it's the LSAT. I do think it's the lateness combined with my being an interviewee who comes across as unlikable.
11:46
Yeah that's fair and tbh the admits and WLs are all over the place. I don't think they're as predictable as other places. I wouldn't take much stock in any conclusions to be drawn from it. I was also WL and mightve had bad stats or unlikeable interview but there way more outliers that this website alone can't really be used to draw conclusions

Any predictions on the next A wave??
10:22
Irish, I have no idea. I was really thinking it was gonna be yesterday.

15:48
yeah I feel like it's been a couple weeks since they've done a wave, starting to get anxious lol

16:10
take your time minnesota...
zzhmo

any wave this week?
LuckOfTheIrish
11:47
Sure hope so. It’s been forever
ornaciastan
13:28
I think there might be an E wave happening?? Seeing people post WL and R's, I also just got a WL
14:44
i know this is crazy, but is it (practically) too late to apply?
15:45
@okiale: As long as the deadline hasn't passed, I'll never say that it's too late to apply.

@okiale: shoot your shot!

Does anyone have experience with Minnesota scholarship negotiation?

10:17
@Botting: yeah, they’ll ignore you for a few months and then finally say “we don’t negotiate”

19:44
confronted them irl they said "sorry we don't negotiate"

19:51
anyone hear about robina scholars?
13:53
They say that they tend to accept 5-8% (20-40) people off the WL so here's hoping
18:35
I've been UR like 8 times at this point including twice this week, lmkkkkk MN
18:41
most people who applied around my time (on this site) have a decision by now. I wanna say this can only be a good sign but maybe they're just really torn between R and WL lmao
12:48
So I take that to be bad news..
Anyone thinking we’ll see some WL action soon with their first deposit being due yesterday?

Anyways, I emailed them on April 16th and this is what they said to me: Thank you for reaching out about your status and for your patience during the process. I know it has been a challenging cycle for applicants, and we are a bit delayed getting some decisions out because both our volume and quality is up. I understand you may have deadlines coming up quickly at other schools, and, unfortunately, we can't give you a final decision right now as we are in a bit of a holding pattern. We are evaluating the deposited pool after our 4/15 deadline just passed, and we have some outstanding admits with a 4/30 deadline. I anticipate being able to give you a decision in the next 2-3 weeks.
Anybody still waiting on a decision? I feel like a big part of every weekday for me now is googling 'what time is it in minnesota right now'
