Honestly, if you have decent numbers, expect a waitlist offer, IMHO. Just looking at LSN, they don't seem to be big fans of splitters, but if you have ok LSAT/GPA, you will probably at least make waitlist. Of course, there are the occasional above-both-75th-percentile-rejections. UNC's Admissions is more confusing to me than people who think Taylor Definitely Not a Nazi Swift can sing.
Hey, so nobody's got a crystal ball, I am aware. But what do you think I can expect, as an out-of-state 37 y.o. with a 163/3.81.
I'm assuming WL, b/c I've been collecting those things like trading cards.
163 is such a 'tweener score. I had that and retook for the 164. There seems to be a level between 163/164 for some inexplicable reason. That said, I don't it will matter much at UNC where in-state 167's get waitlisted and oos 161's get it.
You're so right about 163/164. There are so many schools that want to be one away from 165, I am sure. I meant to take it again in February, but things happened (long story). I so wish I had taken it, b/c I felt sure I was on par for 165 or higher. Anyway, I expect a WL. They should send me my WL letter some time before I finish my second year of law school.
162s get no love. I got into every T2 school I applied to with a vengeance (solid scholarships and such). I cannot get into any T1s.
I had pondered retaking when I got my score, but it was higher than any practice test I took, and I work 50-60 hours a week, making it really difficult to focus on studying. I figured a 162 was sufficient for the schools I was looking at, based on LSN, medians, and LSP. But I guess not.
That said, I will consider a UNC waitlist to be as accomplished as an acceptance at this point.
