Wbrother when did you go complete? You are basically my numbers twin so I have been following you very closely. Did you submit all your apps in November? Regardless congratulations and thanks for the hope you give us all (me in particular). I would die for your UsC offer and an acceptance at Cornell.

Got in to Cornell today as well! This has been the best week so far of my cycle. Columbia on Monday and Cornell today! For those experiencing radio silence stay optimistic, that was me literally a week ago!

Most of my apps were submitted in November, pre-thanksgiving. USC and Cornell were early december. I'm very stoked on my USC offer as well! If your numbers are similar to mine, it's probably only a matter of time. I gave schools almost every reason to reject me, so hopefully you utilized TLS better than I did.

Wow congratulations! Penn is the best (but as an undergrad there I might be biased :P) Great job! :)

First waitlist of the cycle today at Michigan. But I'm not complaining- I've been so blessed already. :)

ETA: Waitlisted at Penn too. Not too sad, though.

FFinally got an offer that reassured me of attending law school. It is not a T14, but UCI reconsidered me and offered me 40ka a year. For personal reasons and for the location allowing my finance to finish her schooling, it is a very exciting offer for me. I still hope I snag some love from UVA off the waitlist, or substantial money from USC/Cornell, but if neither of those happen I will be happy to attend UCI and utilize Dean Chem to the best of my abilities. I was also accepted into WUSTL before that and the school/people in the thread look awesome.

Also brother, my numbers are nearly identical to yours (within.1 of your gpa) so I will be jumping for joy if your results spell what is to come for me :)

Dings from Boalt and NYU today were a bit of a blow. Still no acceptances attached to my name yet. Here's to another week.

Can you retake? You've got a decent GPA.

Your chances change pretty drastically with a 4+ LSAT increase.

no I'm a 3rd timer. went up 4 points each time. 14 more schools to hear back from so one's gotta bite.

I have a feeling you'll still get a couple bites, man. Don't give up the faith.

Ehhh. Every time I replay my JS1 in my head it gets worse and worse. I might just be the unicorn that is a post JS1 URM ding.

With your numbers I highly doubt that will be the case.

Waitlisted at BU today, I got the e-mail at work and just saw the, "We are unable to offer you admission at this time," part and spent the afternoon a little sad because I thought I was rejected, I should probably learn to always finish the sentence before coming to a conclusion before school starts. At this point I'm expecting a few more waitlists (and probably some rejections) over the next few weeks but I'm happy to sit on a waitlist for awhile, I'll take that over a rejection even if I have to wait some more. I'm thinking I'll probably wind up depositing at Cardozo and then hoping I get off a waitlist, I have a full ride so if I wind up there financially it feels like less of a risk (there I go again, making decisions without all the information).

Also, I have a new job, is it worth telling the schools I haven't heard back from? It's nothing glamorous, I'm working at in a call center for a travel company that does escorted tours, it requires minimal thinking and I doubt anyone is going to be impressed with my ability to book flights but right now (unless they check my LinkedIn) it looks like I'm not doing anything.
