lol that gpa is going to die a miserable death with that 156. What a shame. I'm over here in super splitter waters and would give my left nut for that gpa, all the while they are actually considering going to one of those TTTTTTTT schools. The nerve of some people. smh

They pulled uva tho


oh wtf. i didnt even see that first time through. my eyes were locked on maryland and baltimore honestly. didnt even see the rest of the list hahaha. thats an insane acceptance then. i retract my previous statement

It'll be at or close to sticker though.
I get that some people just aren't that good at the LSAT / get test anxiety / etc, but if you can get of a 4.0+ GPA, you're definitely capable of 170+ (or at least a hell of a lot higher than that).

Yeah I'd take any law school in the T13 at a full ride over even Yale. My undergraduate degree is basically all financed as well. Paying back loans BLOWS.

If I worked in admissions I'd be super hesitant about reverse splitters. Regular splitters, however, come one come all.

Alex is "living" vicariously through his numbers twins.

I'm almost debating getting a hotel. Exhausted. No want to drive home, but I can't leave now anyways bc I'll just be in traffic for 1,000 years.

Lol the two admits were "top 5" and "top 3" UG. I still have zero chance.

Just shoot for 180 and take until you get 175+ if you have the time/energy. Not much of a difference in outcomes between 175 and 180.

Not to open this can of worms, but Yale is usually quite generous and New Haven has a much lower CoL than NYC, so I do think there are situations where taking Yale over a full-ride makes sense. $300k in debt is bad idea for any school though.

I feel like a lot of people (especially "top 3 UG" people" *cough*) have significant family support which can change the calculation a bit.

Seriously. My only hope is that my parents will appreciate that I stayed home for uni and cost them nothing, and will be willing to help with COL wherever I go.

Ugh yeah I hope so too. Gonna cross that bridge when I come to it though. Gonna try to get an RA position and keep costs low wherever I go, but even a bit of $$ would help.

Yup, it'd be nice. That's still a ways off though. I'm hoping I can accumulate enough savings that money won't necessarily have to determine my path. That's all one could ask for really.
