Does anyone think they'll attend one of their safeties?

I'm leaning towards another option for two years and re-applying.

I'm going to law school next year, don't care if it's at a safety. Looks like it'll be either Denver, Pittsburgh, or Saint Louis. Out at Illinois, praying to God for IUB.

I'm with you all here. Silence from my top schools/reaches, but tons of $$ thrown at me from safeties. Depaul, Penn State, and Case Western are all starting to look pretty good, and I'll be happy to end up at any of them. Still waiting, though.

Yeah, I've been accepted into my "safeties" and most of my targets and have heard nothing from my reaches or even one of my relatively safe targets (Vanderbilt, what are you waiting for!?!) I went complete in early October everywhere and have been under review at Duke since mid-December. Thankfully, I feel really good about attending my safeties, especially with the money they threw at me.

This thread let's me know I'm not alone! Thank you!

So far... 4 acceptances- all safeties, 1 WL, and nothing yet from 15 others.

One safety did offer a full scholly which I am considering b/c it is in the city I live in and want to practice.
