I've gotta be an honorable mention. 172, 3.8 and shut out of the T10, albeit I only applied to 5 of them.

wow! You get my vote, which of the T10 did you apply? If its the T5 then its not terrible but still somewhat suprising.

LSN Results

Does anyone want to try to compete with this? AKA make me feel better about my lack of success?


My results for the T14 i applied to: 2 rejections, 3 WL's, 2 acceptances, 1 hold, and 2 pending. Not terrible, but with an LSAT above the 75th percentile for all schools applied to except Columbia and a GPA hovering around the 25th percentile for most I thought my cycle would have a few more acceptances by now.


Strange Cycle out here at Windswept Fields.

I can see being shut out of Columbia, Chicago, and MVPB due to YP/holistic admissions. But NYU should be a slam dunk.

Sorry, it's been a rough week for me. Don't mean to come off as an ass. Just surprised is all. DallasCowboy, which schools did you apply to?

Any time that you get a rough week, reread your handwritten note and pour some coffee in that mug. :wink: BTW, I wouldn't put Columbia in either the YP or the holistic piles.

Yeah, denied HSV, Reserve Columbia, grade request NYU (unfulfilled). My only regret is that I didn't apply to B.

LSN/avatar will be back up after this week's campus visit to somewhere 8) .

Is it too late to apply to more T14's?

172 2.8, shutout at top 100 so far. But who knows, I feel pretty good about my Brooklyn waitlist.

H and S are crapshoots for anyone, and V is notorious for YP. Grade requests are good (Columbia asked me for one and I later got accepted) -- send and updated transcript and I'm pretty darn sure NYU will accept you.

Would a small GPA decrease affect my current scholarship offers?

+1, although I'm assuming he has a good reason for not having sent them by now.

Yes, I don't understand that part. Is there somewhere that you've been admitted where you would rather go?

I got a couple B's in the fall in tough classes. Back when I got the request, I was still waiting on UVA and didn't want to mess that up. Fail.

Edit: They want grades sent to LSAC :?

You know, I have no opinion about this matter other than that curry is awesome, and you know what, that's not even the issue at hand, so I really do have no opinion about the matter.

Though I'm not fan of the Governator, California's economic woes won't be solved by a change at the top. Prop 13 and the super-majority requirements placed on the budget and revenue are the underlying problem, and deeper political reform is needed.

Do it! Although with Congress headed in a similar direction (where minority party has both the incentive and ability to prevent the majority party from governing) California might be the least of our worries.
