Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
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)
17:06
it is why some people retake the LSAT to increase their WL chances if they don't want to do another cycle
17:06
Unless you retake the LSAT and raise your score to/over a school's median, or win some Preßtigious fellowship or award, both hard to do in the next month

How I feel about the special preferred waitlist
17:09
Every day passes that I am scared shitless that I got all excited about an interview and then imma get hit with the R

@Ijustwannagetinman: I have been working on one LOCI for weeks knowing its my only remaining shot at improving my file! idk if this helps but hopefully it reassures you that your hard work is not for nothing and that others are doing this alongside you!
17:10
We're all in this rat race together!
17:13
More like groundhog day lol
17:16
Every day I wake up thinking, "today is the day I could hear from NYU." Every night I go to bed thinking "tomorrow is the day I could hear from NYU."
17:16
Rinse, repeat.
17:18
@NT-GLTY: That, but also some line about Obi-wan, you're our only hope

Oh gosh I kinda wrote my LOCIs really fast lol
17:20
will we for sure hear from everyone by the end of the month?
no
17:21
@Blackbelt2b2: "Help me, LOCI that I poured my heart and soul into that they coldly acknowledged receipt of over two months ago, you're my only hope!"
17:21
Well, if it's any comfort the value of the LOCI is basically (extremely well-written LOCI showing strong and sincere interest) > unremarkable LOCI >>> no LOCI > sloppy LOCI
Would it be worth including in a LOCI that I have no plans to deposit at any school I've been accepted to at this point
Like I'm committed to R&Ring unless I get off a WL
17:23
Just taking the time to submit one is a useful data point re: your level of interest, and distinguishes you from people who don't bother because they have better options or don't care about that school as much (much as writing a Why ___ could)

@crybaby2024: NYU/CLS/GCLU all had movement even into august last year based on LSD
17:23
@OptimisticOutlier: I would frame it as "If admitted, I will attend" assuming that's true
17:24
@Eve: congrats!
17:24
@CTCSH: Don't tell me that lmao
