1. Write a college waitlist letter. This letter should contain information updating the school on what you’ve been up to both inside and outside of the classroom since the time you applied.
2. Send your waitlist letter to your regional rep. Ask them if they have any advice for you as a waitlisted candidate. Keep this line of communication open; do not email them every week, but stay in touch to continue to demonstrate interest.
3. Ask your guidance counselor for help. Ask your counselor to call the admissions office and advocate for you, as well as provide any additional information they may have that will support your candidacy.
4. Ask for an additional letter of recommendation. Obtain and have an extra letter of recommendation sent, but only if the school welcomes extra LORs (some schools explicitly state on their waitlist docs they do not welcome or want extra LORs).
5. Visit the school (Editor’s Note: College visits are not a possibility in the spring of 2020. Consider visiting virtually via a college’s YouTube channel or at Campus Reel.
6. Reach out to alumni. Check if the college/university has a local alumni group (Google search) and if so, reach out to them and ask if there is anyone willing to meet with you for an informal informational interview.
7. Use social media. Use social media to your advantage. Don’t be afraid to follow your waitlist school on FB, Instagram, Snap or other social channels, or Tweet to them your desire to attend.

1. If you have received acceptance letters from multiple schools, there are a few things to consider before making a final decision. Look at the big picture and weigh the pros and cons of attending your potential choices. First, you may want to compare costs—what will tuition, the cost of living, and your financial aid optionslook like for each school? Depending on your financial situation, this alone could make or break your decision for you! Next, imagine what the actual experience at the school will be like. If you have visited each of your potential colleges, refer back to your photos and the notes you made from your trip—how did you like the academic programs, facilities, culture, etc.? Can you picture yourself there for the next four years? And, of course, revisit each option with trusted family members and/or mentors; talking it over with another person can provide you practical insight that you may not have considered on your own. You can also reach out to students at your pote...

1. Like you might have seen with undergraduate institutions, JD programs maintain a waitlist for their yield. It’s hard for admissions officers to determine whether the number of students who enroll in the school will be greater or fewer than the number of seats available. Candidates who are well-qualified and have the potential to succeed in the program but have a low LSAT score or weak GPA might be placed on the law school waitlist for further consideration. Law schools also don’t want all of the members of their incoming class to bring the same stories and backgrounds. If your resumé is similar to another applicant who is a shoo-in, admissions officers might want to wait and see whether you would be able to uniquely contribute to the program. On the other hand, schools might think you’re a better fit for a different school, and thus put you on the waitlist. So, if you’ve been waitlisted, the decision could still go for or against you. If you haven’t been accepted elsewhere that you’...

Frequently Asked Questions

How many students are on the waitlist for law school?

It will depend on the law school waitlist policy at the particular institution – some schools have thousands of students on the waitlist, while others have a much shorter list.

Should you accept a college waitlist offer?

If you were waitlisted from your top choice school, you should definitely accept a place on the waitlist and do all you can to get an acceptance. That said, you should also move on with plan B. Accept an offer from the best college that accepted you, put down your deposit, and move forward.

Can you find out if a school has a waitlist?

If you are placed on a waitlist, you can usually find out if the school has gone to their waitlist in the past and if so, how many students they admitted from the waitlist. In some cases, your chances of eventually getting in are very good; at other colleges, waitlisted applicants are almost never admitted.

What are your chances of getting off a waitlist?

Chances of getting off a waitlist vary from year to year and school to school. Because of the uncertainty, you should move on with other plans. Be sure to accept a position on the waitlist and send a letter of continued interest if allowed. In the spring, college applicants begin getting those happy and sad admissions decisions.
