I'm guessing your numbers are close to a triple double right?

it'll take another go around to look at the date when these posters shared their results, but any idea of how well an applicant with #s in that range eventually gets off the WL?

there were a few people who got stanford but never got off H's WL despite having ~3.6, mid-to-high 160s.

also, any idea why twentypercentmore's unique situation (pretty sure it's common knowledge now but I won't say anything so as to not out him) hurts him so much? The 3.6 164 applicant I refer to above isn't helping most T14s on either number but still get in without a problem, so why s/he different from another applicant who doesn't help either stat?


Have been wondering this as well. I also remember he was still finishing a graduate program or something. The good news is there are more applicants with similar circumstances this cycle. But personal background details still matter a lot. We will see how things play out!


well now that we've settled the 20%more question, what's the deal with WLs? do URMs get in straight, or do they go WL->accept for the most part? I'm asking because some schools don't take people off the WL until the summer, and people may stop updating their LSN profiles before then. so we have no idea if some of the URMs stuck on WL @ hccn for example eventually got off

Yea I did. That was my last score. That horrible score plus a recommendation from someone to look at TLS gave me reason to retake.

Welcome to the URM thread, we're not a very trusting bunch, but we are nice and helpful once you get to know us.



For sure. KT, AA Male been accepted into NYU, Berkeley, Duke, GULC, Georgia and Vandy.


You have some great options already! Congrats! Do you have any specific preference?


I'm only seriously considering Vandy or UGA, I prefer to stay in the south.

Google Law School recommendation examples, and make sure the letter proves they know you personally, not just that you received a good grade in the class.

From what I've heard... it's really easy for adcomms to see that you're the one writing it. The advice I have seen is to make it comparative, and describe the class/ academic setting -was it hard, was there research etc. Talk about a flaw is also a good way to make sure that they don't think you wrote it.

Lebron was easily in the top 1% of students i have ever taught, he routinely set curves, and was at the top of my class. I know he left cleveland and that he will always be tainted by the fact that he joined another HOF'ers team, never won a ring on his own, and has a terrible receding hairline, but I feel that his ability to succeed in LS is pretty good.

Shiz like that
