Should I clarify I'm a woman? Hah.

I was academically accomplished at my run-of-the-mill liberal arts school [80-pg senior thesis in Spanish, probably strong LORs, Phi Beta Kappa...] but isn't everyone who applies to HYS? I feel no more special than anyone else, if anything, I'm certain I'm underqualified.

Also, is that what 'softs' are? Your accomplishments outside of the GPA/LSAT breakdown?

Okay, seriously, what more do you need than a WL at Yale with a 167 LSAT?

OP needs to blanket the T14 next cycle and do it early. It's obvious that at least some schools will regard him/her as URM.

OP: How much work experience do you have?

What was his GPA? 7.0?

OP, were you rejected anywhere, or are those the only schools you applied to?

I haven't heard back from nyu nor Columbia yet. Seems safe to say I'm rejected?
