Yuppers


Yup.

Though the lack of splitters might indicate splitters get consideration later o.o

Maybe we can still hold out a sliver of hope until this email goes out... After that, I think we're toast.

Exactly what the other gentleman said regarding splitters. It seems they've put a GPA floor based off LSN that is ridiculously high (3.75... remember this is the floor) and LSAT of 171 or 172 except for URMs and one person who was a fluke. So yes, my 3.65 and 174 looks like it is on the outside looking in. This is perhaps why I abhorrently hate the US News and World Report ranking methodology that factors based off percentiles rather than averages. If you were going off the average a 3.65 doesn't hurt the class numbers and the 174 is a boost. If you go off a median a 3.65 might as well be a 3.0. It is patently ridiculous.

congrats everyone!! a lot of the regular accepted getting more acceptances :D good luck to those still waiting. I've seen lots of calls go into the evenings at these schools.

this thread makes me wish wish wish that I had forced my LOR writer to write and submit a week earlier! Now how long for us first UR 12/23s to wait...

We're all waitlist is what we are... they will tell most of us no in August and a couple of us yes because our numbers help them fudge the system (they need either a GPA or LSAT splitter). I have already lost all faith for this profession just through dealing with the admissions process.

Judging from your cycle tk, I think your call is on its way. Seriously.

Have there really been no non-URM RD admits with GPAs under ~3.7? Either that's not right, or there are still more calls coming...

I think maybe one who was at 3.59 but thats it. I feel they will keep us waiting for a while. Maybe WL/reject some of us soon.

+1 And if I remember correctly the splitter was URM.


FYI, I'm a splitter (3.6) with acceptance (posted earlier) and not URM.
