Landed on another wait list, this time at Michigan. I'm 3-1-4 now. Pretty sure I'm gonna be wait listed at the other 7 schools I have pending.

Keep your head up, man. You've got some great options so far! Remember, we URMs traditionally have to wait until the end of the cycle to hear back from the big schools, so don't take the silence as a bad thing (necessarily).

JS2 today! WL at UVA, Gtown, and Penn. I guess those fee waivers really didn't mean much.

+1

I have to believe there is a lot of good news coming in April for us waiters, especially someone with numbers like you, Hank. Hang in there, and you're not alone!

Haha thats me.


Hey y'all, figured I'd finally post in here seeing as though my cycle is coming to an end. I managed to stay away from TLS this cycle just to curb my own neurosis/OCD but wanted to give those with numbers like mine hope for this cycle and the next.

AA F
3.7X
162

In:
Texas
UCLA
USC
UVA
Berkeley
Michigan
Columbia
and Harvard happened today, Unreal. Complete 1/4 JS1 3/7

Went complete at the rest after Dec LSAT in early Feb.

I withdrew from a few while pending
NYU
Penn

Still waiting on
SLS
Chicago

Hope this helps, if you have any specific questions please feel free to PM me!
I really do appreciate all the help this thread provides, to all of you waiting hang in there, and don't count yourselves out, anything is possible.

Thanks so much both of you! Oddly enough the JS1 felt less than mediocre but hey, not complaining now. :)

You're definitely giving the rest of us hope! Congrats again on the killer cycle! Any reason you withdrew your apps from Penn and NYU while they were pending?

Once that JS2 comes some waiting seems worthless I imagine.

Thanks so much!! Judging by the way your cycle is going your JS2 is on the way! As for Penn and NYU I guess I just felt that my heart wasn't in it. I had gotten into the others before I heard back and knew pretty certainly I wouldn't be seriously considering them. Figured I'd free up those potential spots.

AA male ~3.5/169 right? Your cycle is weird considering your URM type and numbers. Did you apply late or something?

Yes, I applied at the end of January and I think that some schools may have doubts about me matriculating since I am over 40.

Congrats!

d330, I'm taking it to be a positive. I had my JS1 a week or so after yours and have been held for a while. I'm thinking they're saving the best for last :)
