Can someone please sit and explain the 9th post down to me
Slowly and clearly plz thanks

I have no words, and like our president, I usually have the best words

RIGHT?
Maybe it was a late app?

Also think CLS YPs a bit. There are some very surprising yellow dots on LSN. Not a lot, but a few.

I was gonna say bad softs, but unless this guy'a a KJD with no WE whatsoever and no ECs I honestly don't see how a WL is possible.

I'm wondering if late app.
Look at LSN - some very weird results.
Like I said, I think CLS YPs a bit if they think you're not likely to come. Not UVA/MIch-style YP but I think it happens.

I think you're right, especially if late+not showing much interest in app. CLS is effectively trying to bait a LOCI outta this guy

I'm gonna try to visit CLS and NYU before apps and write Why's for both. Probably overkill, but NYC is always fun and they're (among) my top choices so wouldn't want some random YP shit to go down.

Yeah I wrote Whys for all of my top 5 schools (but didn't write one for Penn smfh). I also kinda felt that my why CLS is more like a "Why Not NYU" and vice versa

I BELIEVE IN U.
Avoid the WL, negotiate, and you'll get $$.

Also someone got a Berk fullride.

I wonder of there is a floor or something. I figure a 3.4/177+ is somewhat parallel to a 3.6/174 but I am biased. hell the sub 3.4s with high lsats have been getting more than 3.4/5 alike.
I thought uva was tough to negotiate with now?

Damn I'd love a full ride to Berk, my ug if you didn't know.

It's interesting... this forum seems to have a lot of love for UVA from what I've seen.

Low CoL, good southern placement, and not bad with scholly if they offer immediately. plus our Shepard is going there. My number one but I don't know if I should hold my breath.

I'm totally Berk alum.

My suspicion would be that 25ths have something to do with it but I think high LSATs can put you in a special situation.
Imo one can always negotiate.

Yes, would be amazing to return to my alma mater, UC Berkeley, with a large scholarship.

below the 25th is below the 25th imo, so long as one is at a 3.XX they are probably okay. High lsats are rare tho, which is why you see some 3.2/3s pulling 6 figures.

A large scholarship from Berkeley my alma mater as well, in California would also be a dream come true.

also add "Kevin Spacey sometimes speaks at UVA" to list of things it has going for it.


Indeed. Going to see if I can spot Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston tomorrow. Need sleep.

I dunno man... I guess it depends how close to medians you are GPA wise and how much one class could swing your GPA.

I graduated with so many credit hours that, even if I could do post baccs for LSAC GPA, it would take forever to raise mine. I can't see one B really hurting your UGPA that much.
