Thank you for this post GAIA. I will definitely be referring to this throughout my cycle. This has definitely instilled some renewed hope in me. Non-URM's often tell me that my 3.4 GPA has doomed me, where the T-14 is concerned.

Your post says otherwise.

very interesting thread. question:

anyone care to comment on 50/50-ORM/URM? advice? experience as such? do you game the system a bit (consistently identify as URM)?

Check all boxes that apply. "Gaming the system" can come to bite you in the ass come C&F time.

Yes, asian = ORM

C&F is the Character and Fitness portion of the bar. They dislike dishonesty and misrepresentation, like a lot.

Great post GAIA, very helpful.

I am interested in petitioning my registrar for a retroactive withdrawal. Would you mind talking over PM on tips on how to go about that?

I just saw a post about retroactive withdrawal in another thread, so search around and you'll find something more live. GAIA is likely gone...not only is she like 2 years post graduation, but she also got into some serious TLS hot water regarding LSAT stuff if I'm not mistaken.
