OH NO! Still nothing here. I step away for 90 minutes and it's bloodbath central. I'm sorry, guys.


I'm rooting for you!! Good luck! :)

Ding. I knew it was a longshot with my GPA, but I thought if they really meant it about the holistic review process they would let me in.

Ironically, the email came literally right as I was sitting down at a conference table with the Dean of NYU Law at an admitted students thing. So right after getting rejected, I got a nice 45 minute ego massage from a T6. SO THERE BOALT! But still, :(.

It could mean a bunch of different things. Maybe there will be another wave of rejections? Maybe they will put us in the next FR? Maybe they will accept us?

I'm jealous of the FR people because at least they knew when a decision would be reached. It feels like we're floating in a huge sea of uncertainty.

I'm still hanging on. I saw that someone on the Berkeley 2010 claimed to have been accepted today without FR, right?

EDIT: from "still barely hanging on." trying to avoid negativity.

Yep! I believe he had a 3.7 GPA and a 180 LSAT.

EDIT: There was 1 person who was NOT FR. There have been many FR admits today.

Hmm, and he's from mid-november as well. That gives me some hope. Except the whole "180 LSAT" part!

Actually, I meant non-FR too. Thanks for catching that.
