well the waitlist is not this ranked list - they pull based off what they need in their class so while people may be preferred, if there is someone on the regular waiting list that has some compelling experience or goal they are looking for
16:58
LOL... classic GULC
quite nonsensical to me
killfeed going crazy rn

the tiers offer a glimpse of where you stack up but at the end of the day waitlists are there for schools to fill gaps and they choose to do so however they please (I am out of messages but hope this helps!)

real talk why can't lsac just pull a GRE move and give you an unofficial score immediately after you take the test
whats a special group lol

Like is there any legit reason they can't do that

Who says waitlists pull who they need in a class?
Ijustwannagetinman
17:00
Like where are people getting that information
well you see some students need...
Ijustwannagetinman
17:00
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
Ijustwannagetinman

GILC is different bc they have two waitlists
3*

But generally won’t writing a LOCI help
Paid my deposit at UC Irvine yesterday. I'm done with all 7 waitlists
17:01
@ClassyPleasantHeron: bars
17:01
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

SOMEONE ANSWER ME AM I WRITING LOCIS FOR NOTHING
17:01
what

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.

17:02
Im not talking abt Georgetown specifically I’m talking about UCLA bc my husband lives there

(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)
