In at Berkeley, 167-ish, 3.4-ish, non-urm. The appropriate word here, I believe, is "stoked".

I call fib. If a 158/3.6 non-URM was accepted, I would have at least been WL.

Self-aggrandizing, FTW.

It's Boalt. We all know the above statement isn't logical.

I got into UChicago with GPA under 25th and LSAT under the 75th. Not dramatic, but still very surprising. "Weak consider" on LSP, etc.

But Gymboree wins this thread. Huge high fives.

Unless kitten had game-changing softs (even that would be a stretch for non-urm) I have to doubt the validity of the post. According to LSP I had a better shot at Berkeley than UVA and here I sit with an outright Boalt rejection and a WL at UVA.

KM did not have the LSAT or GPA he posted. He also did not get into BoalTTT I don't believe.

I just remembered you were that guy who was a massive dick to splitters on a long thread. Then I looked at your LSN page.

In your face bro.

Fair. I don't know why it would be completely impossible to fathom, though...it's Boalt.

UVA reached to a 160 to pick up 4.0 GPAs early in the cycle, and with your late-ED (IIRC), I think a WL is pretty understandable there.

If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and makes people feel bad like a duck...
