So many folks getting responses back finally, so many others in that purgatory between submitting and not hearing back. I honestly doubt my cycle will help anyone, but I know I've looked at other folks numbers to get a sense of what I should or could hope to expect. So for those who applied after November, here is how it's been for me:

168/3.73, non-traditional student with strong softs

Harvard: JS1 1/9
UMich: Accepted, Darrow
Northwestern: Accepted
BC: Accepted
UVA: Waitlisted
UPenn: Applied
Yale: Applied
Georgetown: Applied
Columbia: Applied
NYU: Applied

Thanks Anela!
Also aiaea, I know what you mean. My ding from Yale stung even though I knew I didn't stand a snowball's chance, but hey, you'll go where you're called to and you can only pick one anyway! :)

Dude, we're totally LSAT/GPA/AA twins (besides your GPA being .1 higher than mine). You should create an LSN account.

I got 4 emails this afternoon from law schools, all TTTT asking me to apply. Seeing as I've yet to hear back from the nearly 20 schools I actually applied to... I was not particularly pleased.

Just got a JS1 with Harvard!!! What are the numbers looking like for people getting rejected after an interview vs. waitlisted and accepted?

Music to my ears. Congrats!

~70% who get a JS1 get a JS2. This percentage increases for URMs I believe.
