Last night I finally changed my year of expected application from 2012 to 2013 and my transcripts finally came through on Friday. I'm pretty sure this change of activity is the only reason I got the various emails today.

bitsy why are you retaking, again? :lol:

go to Africa or smth and write a kick-ass PS instead (that's what I would do at least). I'm messing with you. I know you can get a 178 on this thing if the stars align.

Nice pull. I remember taking that test thinking I got close to a 180 and having the curve decimate my hopes.

I was pleasantly surprised by Boston U and Yeshiva waivers today though so that makes up for it.

@sug, I miss your gingerness

@bits, what could you possibly offer to match that on your end? I'd say you have to shave your head but if you aren't looking your best at ASW ill be very depressed

Don't stress about your stats.

I received an unsolicited fee waiver from School X encouraging me to apply – does this mean I have a higher chance of admission?

The response by law schools is generally “no,” though this doesn’t tell the whole story. Certain schools, such as The University of Michigan and Duke University, both cite higher acceptance rates for applicants who receive fee waivers. Many others, on the other hand, annually reject a number of fee waiver recipients. Generally speaking, there seem to be two major reasons underlying such rejections:

Selectivity boost: A portion of the score used to rank law schools is determined by how selective a school is – that is, the percentage of applicants accepted in a given year. Fee waivers generally encourage candidates (both financially and emotionally) to apply to a given school. By issuing fee waivers to candidates unlikely to gain admission, based on their LSAT and GPA, schools can boost their number of rejected applicants, thus increasing their selectivity. An unsolicited fee waiver definitely does not equal guaranteed admission.

Yield Protection: While the above deals with candidates who are under qualified, occasionally overqualified candidates – who receive fee waivers due to their impressive statistics – can be rejected or waitlisted as well. In addition to selectivity, schools are concerned with matriculation or yield – the percentage of admitted students who decide to attend. For this reason, some schools will waitlist or occasionally reject candidates whose statistics suggest that they will most likely be accepted at and choose to attend schools of higher rank or prestige.


With my 160 in June and 159 in October, I'm very confident my waivers are just for schools to get a selectivity boost.

Maybe I just havnt gotten the Nov. fail stench off yet but I just feel LSAT Lathargia.

Maybe I just need a good test. PT44?


Take a deep breath and forge on.

I know how you feel. This has been the hardest for me to prep for b/c it's the third one (FML) and I'm so busy. I'm doing it, though. If I can do it, you can.

Take some deep breaths, get yourself in a good mental place then CRUSH a PT.
