My lowest grades on my transcript are one C- and one C+ but most of my grades have been clustered in the B+/A- range. However, I did start my freshman year at a T5 private school and left and finished at a T65 (I guess? Vague about USNWR undergrad rankings). I have some classes that were NR, so they aren't on my transcript. I feel as if Harvard Admissions can read between the lines on the missing classes from my freshman year.


That's not that bad at all. Although I guess it depends on whether you were out because of an issue having to do with yourself or outside forces (family, money, etc). The latter is not a problem at all but the former could, I guess, raise a red flag about whether you'll be able to handle law school.

Either way, I'm pretty confident you'll get a JS1 at least.

Congrats to all the new JS2s. Seems like there was plenty of movement today.

I'm in at GULC. Still waiting on HLS. 3.7/168 and pushing past 40 days and nights post JS1. Talk about stress.

Bad day for me... rejected at American this morning, and wait-listed at UC Boulder this evening. I've gotten into a few schools in the top 50 so far, but I would really love to go to either GW or W&L. I'm (PR) URM with 3.1/162. Do I have any chance at all? My outlook is pretty bleak after today...

I.e., your chances at GW and W&L appear to be about 50/50, but this sample size on LSN isn't very high. At any rate, much stranger things have happened this cycle. Good luck!

Congrats, buddy!! You were a shoe-in with your numbers and I'm sure you crushed it on your JS1. Well deserved.

Is it safe to say that we can't look forward to hearing anything until next week due to the ASW tomorrow?

Hey-o! I just created a thread in the Personal Statement section but I just wanted to check-in here to see if anyone had some free time and felt generous. I need someone to look over my LOCI, I was waitlisted at my first choice school back in November. Gracias!

Of the T10, I'm at 2 dings, 2 acceptances, 2 WL, 1 hold, and 3 bullies ignoring me.

I already hit the lotto w/ Columbia, I'm just praying my softs get me the Powerball @ Harvard or Stanford.

I was lucky enough to get Harvard, but I love NY and live here with an SO already. If Columbia offered me even just a little bit of money - need-based or otherwise - I'd enroll so fast it would be nuts.

Did you make sure they knew this? I feel like w/ your numbers and this info, they'd snatch you up in a hurry.

Columbia is significantly less URM friendly than Harvard.

I have been longing for a response from any of the T14 and today I got it.

Held at Northwestern.

Kinda falling in love with Vandy though.
