USC done for good?
I'm confused.. In the WL email it says that "You only need to send us one continued interest note."
So do we send one or not?

Has anyone tried asking for a decision because of an approaching deposit deadline? And if so, has it worked?

Thursdays are their A days, so there’s hope. When did you apply/go under review if you don’t mind me asking? @casafromtx
20:12
I applied 01/07, went UR 04/08
I'm withdrawing. Not even UR yet, but got the email that they won't review me for Rothman. Waste of time writing an essay
20:21
Ooof. It was an R

Email finally came through

I’m sorry, but UCLA is amazing. You should be incredibly proud to have gotten accepted. Went there for undergrad, and I loved it
@HugeSlowSatyr: fair but it is only one person who gets that scholarship, worth a shot.
Damn this one hit different

Do law schools eventually send rejection letters to waitlisted candidates?
