Before. It's the first sign that score emails are incoming.

Every time I go on LSAC's website, Dean Kellye Testy's face is there smiling, basically saying, "you dumbass, you're not getting your shitty score today lmao you stupid."

I'm typically chill with my aging, but I did find myself plucking a few extra GRAYS from my cache to morning. A sign?


And I just know that University of Washington is my destiny. I have some CA schools, I can see raising a family there. But I've had people ask me where stuff is when I was visiting Seattle. I look like I belong there. My sister lives there with her husband. And my friend/current coworker will probably be moving there soon as her BF got a sweet Google gig. I have been trying to get back to salt water since I left Guam as an infant. So just want UW so hard.

My experiences and values really appear to align with what they do there as well.

In the midst of one obsessive refreshing, I swear I saw grey icons for a fraction of a second. I almost cried.

I'm inside the 3's, but not by a large margin.


Let's start our own low 3's club

If I was LSAC, this is the day I would do it. Get it out of the way before the holiday, duck all of the feverish phone calls for a few days and give the fledgling gunners time to calm down. And if they have any sense of compassion, they surely won't make us agonize for three more days of this.

Question:

Does it matter what our UG avg GPA was? I'm under the impression (from conversations with splitter classmates who did really well during their cycles) that LSAC sends a report with your transcript that lets schools know about grade inflation and deflation. I'm 99% sure my school's UGPA avg was around a 2.7.

If they don't come out today I'm not stressing on Saturday/Sunday.

Decided to go visit Columbia on Monday. Hopefully I won't have my dreams crushed by then.

From what I've been told all the matters is you LSAC GPA.

I'd like to know what my school's average is, I think it would make me feel a little better about it.

So apparently when Victor Hugo had writer's block he would give his clothes to a valet and lock himself in a room with a pen and paper:

The GPA report comes with your LSAC GPA is what I'm saying.
