NLSIU bags all toppers except 2 WB locals who go to NUJS: CLAT finally publishes ‘locked’ UG college allocations

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015 has published the long-awaited full list of university allocations on its website at http://clat.ac.in/?page_id=725 

This appears to be the list after the first reshuffled of results, which was published this morning. The website stated:

The following Under-Graduate candidates who have locked their choices have been admitted in the allotted NLUs. These students are directed to visit the allotted NLUs during 24-27 June, 2015 for payment of residual fee and completion of other formalities

In the general list, NLSIU Bangalore almost scored a clean sweet of toppers in the general list this year with ranks 1 to 58 in the unreserved category choosing India’s first national law school.

However, the third and 48th-ranked, who are both residents of West Bengal, chose NUJS Kolkata as their first choice in the preferences.

Last year five students defied NLSIU as the traditional first choice, with two opting for Hyderabad and three for NUJS.

Note: NUJS appears to only have 24 students allocated to it according to that list. We’re investigating and will update the story when we have a minute. We’ll also do a full preference analysis soon.

Via Twitter, Sahgal @AadityaSahgal explained why the list wasn’t final yet:

NUJS hasnt been allotted just 24. Just 24 have locked, the remaining would have upgraded, trying for NALSAR.

The system is simple. You can choose to lock, try to upgrade or withdraw. Anyone who tried to upgrade isnt in the list.

So when vacancies arent there at higher preference colleges, theyll just be allotted NUJS, eventually. Make sense? Look at the righmost column, titled status. You'll see that it is only a list of applicants who locked.
