Dinged at Yale... They are dropping rejection bombs via email right now. Beware. And may the force be with you all!

Dinged at Yale. Totally expected although who knew they would send emails during the blizzard. First negative news of the cycle. Not sad though. I love Boston!

Congrats on Yale and Columbia, analea00! You give me hope that putting together a compelling application can make a big impact even if my numbers are not super high.

New to the forum, and just wanted to get some honest advice...I have a 3.45 and a 161 LSAT, AA Female. I applied to all the top 14 except for nyu, michigan, cornell, nw and yale, but now i'm freaking out because from the schools i've heard back from, I am on the preferred waitlist at both Duke and Georegetown with a rejection from Boalt. Do I have a snowballs chance at my dream school, Columbia or dare I even ask, Harvard?

I'm thinking about applying to GW just to hedge my bets... :/


To be completely honest, even with the AA boost I think Columbia would definitely be a reach and Harvard would probably be out of the question... that being said, this cycle has been crazy. You have a better chance at getting into those schools this year than you would in years past.

If it's your dream school and you can find it feasible, study again for the LSAT and attempt to drastically improve your score. Your gpa is pretty good. If you were able to accomplish a 168+, I think Columbia and Harvard would be in your reach next cycle. It will take a great effort and it's a big decision/commitment, but if its your dream...

Thanks! And I agree... Yale is the most unpredictably selective law school. Don't feel bad about getting dinged.
