My CLAT 2019 rank is 2244. Is there a chance of getting an NLU through vacant seats?
The notice regarding vacant seats will not be announced by CLAT. It will be done by each NLU on their own websites.
.Vacancies usually occur in the lower NLUs and a few Middle NLUs too if a student who earlier was alloted a seat fails to report or leaves the seat. Hence you cant be sure about the number of vacancies or the colleges where it will happen.
Also vacancies are handled by NLUs themselves amd not CLAT. So you will have to keep a tab on the official websites where notices will be released regarding the same.
So the colleges which might have vacancies are all the lower tier NLUs and in the past year there have been vacancies even in middle NLUs like CNLU Patna, RGNUL Patiala etc.
So you will have to be updated with their websites.
With your rank chances seem fair. But it can't be said for sure so you should try to look for Back up options too. A rank under 3000 would be fair for admission through vacancies. Hence with your rank you seem to have fair chances.
Best of luck
