I'm convinced Duke laughed at my app before feeding it to the dogs.

UR1 at Penn as well. After that bloodbath yesterday, I'm not looking forward to this Penn wait.

Still verifying at Cornell too; submitted early December.

Okay, this terrifies me: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/Tariffs

I know he posts here sometimes (sorry, bro). Jessica Soban is clearly not playing around this year.

I guess this just shows there are no guarantees for anyone?

I was in the rejection batch today at H, can't say I'm surprised after what I've been seeing so far. Just so you guys know I'm 3.5+, mid 160s, & TFA. I was 6/6 (4/4 T14) this cycle until that email, darn they messed up my shooting percentage. But in all seriousness, I wish the best for everyone. We'll all come out of this cycle with success. At least I know to save money on that Yale app now.

I'm starting to get a really bad feeling about this cycle after looking through some of the applicant threads. Throw all of the LSN profiles out of your head. We're in for a long ride this cycle.

Cool! Are you still waiting on Columbia, Chicago and Harvard? I submitted all those in December and haven't seen any movement.

The cycle is yet young. We're in for an active month from here to February. Keep calm and carry on!

You're right. It's just that many of us have been waiting for a while at schools that in the past accepted similarly qualified applicants in a month or so. (UofM, Cornell & UChi come to mind) It seems like the smaller applicant pool has made schools more selective with their URM candidates.
