NU waitlist - suggestions?

MarkmarkMarkmark Alum Member

Hey all, I've been waitlisted at NU and I feel it'll be a really good fit for me. I'm a non-traditional student with a family, military veteran, excited about NU's clinic and class offerings and I want to do as much as I can to get off their waitlist. Any advice?

    Retaking the LSAT and improving would help, but that may not be an option for you. Send a letter of continuing interest a day or two after initial seat deposits are do. Polite, to the point, highlighting how much you want to go there.

    Being on the waitlist means that the admissions committee thinks you are an admissible candidate. Should the committee turn to the waitlist for potential candidates, you want your file to show that you are enthusiastic to attend and ready to commit. It might be helpful to read the 7sage advice on what to do after you are waitlisted:

    There is advice on what to say in a letter of continued interest, how to say it, and when to send it. Good luck!
