I got into WUSTL and I'm below both medians. I'm not far below, but I still hurt their numbers in both categories, so it does happen sometimes (non-URM, btw). Now, I only hope that UCLA has a similar thought process while evaluating my app and decides I'm worth the numbers risk.

Oh, and I really don't know why I got in...I was shocked.

166/3.6ish, so I'm .1 GPA and 1 LSAT point below. Like I said, I'm close, but neither of my numbers help the school.

Finally, a real reach acceptance. WUSTL loves numbers, no two ways about it. That you got in below both medians is pretty stunning/impressive. BIG congrats on the admittance.

Pfft. Suddenly one point below LSAT median and above the GPA 75th is a reach.

I have a criminal record which made me feel that it was a definite reach despite my numbers.

Damn, well done!

Boalt seems like a great environment as well; if I only had one "reach" for the T-14, apart from HYS, I'd probably hope for Berkeley.

Nope, 167 last year. Major upset for the answer to everything.
