The “Waitlist.” Purgatory. Limbo. Call it what you want. What does it mean? And, what should you do? Some schools advise the best thing to do now is nothing at all, while others say they want to hear from you with periodic updates. How can you tell what the right approach is?
Law School Podcaster rounded up some experts to help you plan your strategy. For our upcoming show, “Getting In Off the Waitlist,” we interviewed Richard Geiger, Associate Dean, Cornell Law School, William J. Hoye, Associate Dean of Admissions and Student Affairs, Duke University School of Law, Graham Richmond, Founder and CEO of Clear Admit, Ann Levine, Owner of LawSchoolExpert.com and author of The Law School Admission Game: Play Like An Expert.
We’ll find out how to know whether a school really wants to hear more from you, what to send to the admissions committee, how often you should contact them, and what else you should know to help you move off the waitlist and on to the admitted students list. Stay tuned to hear more about this segment!
