*oh and what does SP stand for on LSN?


Kmillz was/is psib337 on here. She is still active on the forums. You can always PM her with questions on if her application cycle had any anomalies not readily apparent on LSN, like C&F issues.

This just goes to show how unpredictable the URM cycle is. Besides which, LSN doesn't capture the whole picture.


Thanks for that. I remember reading on here how the median for AA's was 147 or something, and top 14 admits a few hundred. SO it surprises me when every school rejects a 3.0 160 because how many more AA's are there with those numbers out there?



Maybe they reconsidered after seeing her previous two scores? Maybe there were more competitive AA females? Maybe maintaining their numbers took precedence over having a more racially diverse class? Who knows what these committees think, that's why we must apply everywhere.

I mean look at Yale's most recent class....they dipped as low as a 152 and 3.1. For some schools it may truly be holistic...just apply, you never know.

You most likely won't get SEO then.If you don't have a deposit in by May you pretty much don't have a shot

Hence the suggestion that she deposit somewhere right outside the T14 should she not gain acceptance or be wait listed at a top school. SEO has offered to those admitted right outside the T14.

Given Mandy's stats and background, I doubt she will be in such a position.

Was just emphasizing the point of needing a deposit in somewhere.

FWIW, UCLA and GW have had the best representation in the SEO outside the t14 IIRC.

USC is up there as well. It is because the main markets SEO places interns in is NYC and DC.
