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


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


Your actually right at their 25th. But your by far the lowest gpa of the group.

I have already lost all faith for this profession just through dealing with the admissions process.


I'm feeling really bad about myself :(

The rejection email that I assume is on its way will be the the fourth time that the University as a whole has rejected me. Why does this school hate me so much?? I've given them nothing but love and affection.

Don't... this whole process is ridiculous. These schools don't care if you have overcome adversity, are brilliant, or any of it. Do you have the numbers and are you a somewhat lifeless careerist. If you are both of those things your odds are better. Does that mean everybody accepted is that... no. But I guess what I am trying to say is that this is no reflection of you and it just means you have to hustle at the best school that you do get accepted to. Sucks though.

Unless they scheduled their acceptance calls perfectly to end at 5 they will either still be calling people for a little while or possibly calling people tomorrow.

Yea... it cracks me up because I had a teacher who gave me a B based off an attendance sign in sheet even though she was aware that I was in class every single day. I was five minutes late because I was working two jobs and discussed the fact with the professor before the class to see if it was an issue. The professor was a pompous woman who said it won't matter anyways... those couple of GPA points would not be the deciding factor between me being accepted or denied to a school. I am so sending a f--- you message to that professor later tonight.

Don't really wanna go digging to confirm this, but I think someone said at least one of the days (with a lot of admits) last cycle spilled into the next day.

I feel there was a pretty clear gpa cut off for today. If you have below a 3.6/~170 I think we will have to wait for another wave. If you are a high gpa/lsat 1/7 Idk.

Yeah, that seems like the sensible thing to do.
