Ah, I bet the Stanford ug helped a ton. Again, congratulations.

AA not allowed in CA....does this apply to public and private, or just public?

I think it's for state funded schools. I'm pretty sure privates can do what they please. While AA isn't legally permissable, I'm sure it factors into adcomm's minds in a variety of ways, whether consciously or not.

URM? I ask cause it looks like we are similar...drastic upward trend...I had basically my dad's entire office read my PS and they all loved it...and good UG school. I'm hoping it will be enough. thanks for the hope!

Which I just learned 20 minutes ago.

The UC "holistic" application process allows them to get around this, by requiring all members of the adcomm who review an app to review the WHOLE thing, even if the numbers are very low. Let's URM and hardship candidates express their diversity through the PS.

I didn't know that either...I wonder how much they follow that...I've heard schools like USC and UCLA are trying to boost their east coast appeal..trying to become more national like harvard or yale...so might help some of us east coasters over here.

In today! Got the call while at practice. 174, 3.85 OOS RD (and from the east coast!), complete mid Nov. No $ though :-(. UCLA was one of my top choices, but it'd take some $ to sway me away from Boalt...

+1. This is starting to get ridiculous, no logically order whatsoever.

I cannot for the life of me imagine why they haven't gotten back to you yet. Because I (a) can't seem to stop thinking about the whole "app process" and (b) can't stand to constantly think about my own process, I've actually spent an inordinate amount of time being puzzled by this.

It's especially upsetting since there is no way I am going to move across the country when they are not offering a relocation bonus, and I pulled my resume off the job sites already.

Is it bad that median GPA/75th LSAT hasn't heard anything from UCLA?
