This 9/15/2011 nonsense is driving me crazy.

Will be applying this cycle.

Just got my LSAC gpa this morning - 3.37. A pleasant surprise, since I myself had calculated a 3.3.. not a bad little bump. Taking the October LSAT, and willing to ED, depending on my score.

Looking hard at Cornell, but generally planning on applying to t-14+ UCLA, USC, Vandy, GWU, and maybe Davis and Hastings.

Oh yeah, Half-Mexican URM. I'd love to have a few fellow applicants check my PS/DS (when I write it), and am willing to look at others' in return.

I'm applying this cycle but really considering pushing back my October LSAT to December. Does this hurt URM applying late December? I know if you have amazing stats, it doesn't hurt at all. I know some who have applied after the deadline and got accepted to great schools. And, my stats definitely aren't great.

What are you best 3 years ? Toronto is a reach with that GPA(Median are 3.85[calculated on best 3] and 168 ), however if you have one bad year go for it

i should have most of my apps out by the end of next week. i wonder if that's an indication of a decrease in urm apps? though, i know a lot of us apply later anyhow...
