Thanks for the info. Is that index self calculated or did they confirm it?

Self calculated! I may call in next week and confirm if I haven't heard about position on the waitlist.

Just called and it looks like I'll be on the waitlist as well. I was told they couldn't confirm index scores so it will need to be self-calculated. Their waitlist in the regular category is strictly ranked by the numbers and nothing else. 

Index 91.13

Called in just now as well and since I applied discretionary all I was told was that decisions would be made late May. My index is 90.75 (self-calculated).

Waitlisted today. Really crossing my fingers that the stars align and I receive an offer.

Unsure of my true index because I'm not exactly sure how they dealt with some transfer credits, but without the transfer credits or drops, it's 91.38.

LSAT: 168

GPA: 3.7 (without drops).

Does anyone have any information about how many students they usually place on the waitlist, or what percentage of waitlisted applicants normally get in?

I don't know how you aren't in already. I got an offer with a 166 lsat and a 3.7 GPA (80%) it jumps up to 81.9 with the drops. I am rewriting the lsat though and if I hit 170+ I'm going to Columbia

@skbc4699

I'm also surprised you didn't get an offer b/c the drops typically raise your cGPA. Even with a small increase your index would hit 92+ 

Either way, if your stats are what you say you should be fairly high on the waitlist. You can check last year's waitlist thread to get an idea how many people got in. But take that with a grain of salt because every year is different and the possibility exists that no one gets in off the waitlist. Definitely keeping my fingers crossed that is not the case though.

I would suggest that there are issues with GPA calculations between institutions. Even small discrepancies can have significant impact- I calculated my GPA twice (first time using the wrong method) and the two resulting index scores were .17 apart which is significant given the very minor error I made the first time.

For anyone who is interested - went down a stress rabbit hole about the waitlist and found this in a 2014 waitlist thread - 

- - -

How many people put down a deposit and then withdrew before classes began:

2008  49

2009  46

2010  35

2011  32

2012  44

2013  48

- - -

They will send out more offers than there are spots however, so I know that those don't translate to waitlist acceptances. But still - the waitlist does normally move, there is hope for us guys!

    • How do you handle losing cases? Do you get better over time at trying to keep it in perspective, and learning for next time? Is there any way to shut off the spiral of self-doubt?  It’s one thing to acknowledge that every court application is a calculated risk, and that you weigh the pros and cons with the client in advance, and that you’ve decided to take your chances. At some level, though, you believed that the outcome would come out in your favour (especially as the Plaintiff), otherwise you would have accepted a settlement. The rumination on “maybe I should have said this” or “maybe I should have told the client that” or “maybe I should have accepted a settlement” or “maybe if I were a better/smarter/more experienced/more confident lawyer this would have gone differently” or “maybe I just fuck up the lives of people who trust me” keeps me up for weeks and the impact of any losses outweighs 100x the impact of any wins. 
    • This is strictly anecdotal but I know of at least 1 2L in the past year who was a BC transfer. 
    • On test day, I was under so much pressure that my brain went on auto-pilot and my ability to methodically break down each question went out the window, even though I'd spent hundreds of hours studying similar questions at home. If your goal is to start law school in 2020, I think it'd be worth it for you to experience that pressure before the do-or-die January exam. I started with a low 140s diagnostic and finished with a 163 after a year of studying. 
    • Waitlisted today for the English common law program, I'll probably take myself off the waitlist since I firmly accepted at another school a long time ago.  cGPA: 3.57 L2: 3.61 LSAT: 162
