Was there a C&F issue? An incorrect reference to another school in his statements? A bad recommendation? Numbers aren't everything for many schools and it looks like Howard is no exception to this.


He's looking over his app again. I know he got a misdemeanor in undergrad for Driving with his License suspended.... so I mean that's the only thing I can think of that could possibly do it.

But we was accepted to Vanderbilt and Georgetown, so I guess he'll end up at one of those to.

Horrible how?


Small, only the group of 175+ showed growth. Everything else got smaller


Just curious. Where are you getting this information from?

Nah, based on the admittance threads, looks like this cycle is slower than last years. However, it seems odd that it is slower given that there's less applicants.


Less apps more time to critically review each applicant?


I'm wondering if the fact that the December LSAT was cancelled for a lot of people is partially to blame?

I received an e-mail from H stating that because of this they were pushing back their cycle.

Some lower ranked schools ding URMs with strong numbers because they feel they will not attend their school. So that could be a reason why your friend was dinged at Howard. Howard was probably more so focused on a candidate they believe would absolutely attend. And not turn them down for a school ranked higher. I.E. Vanderbilt or Georgetown respectively. Since you said that is where your friend was accepted.

Idk, that's hella messed up, but honestly, I wouldn't think about Howard over Vandy or Georgetown... If anything, it's a sign from the heavens.

So happy for the Seahawks. It was a blowout! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

So folks on Penn's WL, did you decide to stay on? I know the deadline to reply is this Thursday. I am leaning on the fence with this one. If I stay on, I need to write a LOCI.... :?

I know I'm super late to check-in, but still want to introduce myself. I'm NA and applied in late Nov/early Dec. Things have been slow so far. I was initially happy with my LSAT but it now looks like I might need to retake... pm if you're interested in my stats, etc.

Congrats on all of the acceptances!

I haven't even gone complete at Penn but, I think you should ride out the waitlist AAJD. From your previous posts it seems like UPenn was/is your top choice. That LOCI shouldn't be too hard for you since you visited the campus and all. I feel like you can just copy and paste that nice summary you gave us and call it a day. At the very least you gave them X amount of money, make them work for it.
