Dinged at Columbia today (or as they say, I did not receive a favorable action). Given the way things have been going lately I'm not too surprised, I haven't had any good news since early February it's been all waitlists and rejections since then. I still have four schools to hear back from but I'm not expecting good news from them either, at best a waitlist.

Waitlisted at Penn today! With 4 rejections over the past week and a half it was a pretty nice surprise. I only live about 25 minutes from campus so I'll wait this one out as long as I need to.

That is an awesome snag! I hope you get in off the Waitlist!

Nice! That's a good wait list to be on. I'll personally be riding it out for as long as I can... Penn is one of my top choices.

I actually regret not applying to Penn, I always wanted to attend it for undergrad, but had an issue with my application so I never sent it in, instead I was somewhere else in the state and absolutely miserable. It is for that reason I resisted the urge to apply to Penn. 3 years of hell in PA was enough to deter me from a great school (although I would've had little to no shot to get in anyways).

If it's any consolation, a lot of us that applied didn't have a great shot... they've been wait-listing people left and right this cycle. I grew up in PA so I'm pointedly biased, but from what I can tell, people in different cities have dramatically different experiences. It's definitely not for everyone!

That is what all my Philly friends say, but it wasn't the people so much as the institution, so I know I am holding an unfair grudge, but I figure its time to try something new :).

I highly doubt you've missed any JS1 trains. I have the same complete date and a much weaker LSAT and got a JS1 earlier this week. High GPAs are much easier to find than URM 173 LSATs. I agree w/JRR, patience will bear fruit.

Out of curiosity, why no Chicago? You've got NU and M on your list, so you're clearly not averse to Chicago or the midwest.


Thanks for the confidence! I certainly have my fingers tightly crossed for JS1, but still cannot help fearing that it's getting a little late in the game.

As for Chicago, I visited a friend there a couple years back and the whole school kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Since then I could never really picture myself being happy there, but in retrospect, I probably should have shot them an application anyway. :?

edit: And congrats to PR and Man on the acceptances and GW on the JS1! Maybe they're not done shooting off interview requests after all.


I know what you mean. I visited Chicago a few years ago as well. I didn't care for the school either. I am going to apply just so I can use them in any potential negotiations. Northwestern was cool as fuck though. I wish NU was more highly ranked. I was on NU's campus when President Obama was getting inaugurated as POTUS. I will never forget that day. The entire room of NU Law students went into pandemonium.

D where were you that you didn't like it?

I only applied because they sent me a fee waiver. I've lived about 20 minutes from Penn my whole life and never considered applying because it always seemed so far out of reach and everyone I know who went there has been ridiculously smart. Even when I was taking a LSAT class down the street from the law school my thought was, "Well, at least I got to go to Penn for something other than to see a doctor."

I was WL by Penn not too long ago, but I will be rooting for all you guys waiting on Penn to get in. I pulled myself off the waitlist so I am hoping it pushes you guys a little bit closer to an admit call.
