Predictor is terrible. I got into every single school I was a weak consider for. I don't have any eye popping softs, just college mock trial. If you're in the 158/3.5 range you should be in unless either A.) You have something weird in your application like a crime or a really bad personal statement or B.) The class for next year for whatever reason just ups the medians.

Yeah...joint application with their philosophy program...there isn't a school in the country that I could get into that has the philosophy department that Pitt does. They are easily top 5-10 in the world.

Awesome. When do you find out if you got into the Phi department? I'm a philosophy minor and considered adding it as a joint program but... I'm a wuss.

I'm not a law student, but I am a UG, and I've become quite the Pittsburgh buff over my four years here. So if you guys have any questions about the area, you can PM me.

Congrats guys, I remember the feeling of getting my letter in the mail from Pitt and thinking it was a rejection because of the envelope size. Was my #1 choice so cycle was over for me right then and there, and it was a great feeling. Hope you enjoy ASW, if you have any questions let me know, otherwise I'll see you in the fall.

P.S. Submit professor list whenever you get it so all of us that are already here can laugh or cry depending on who you get haha.

Congrats! I'm still extremely nervous. Not yet under review, application has been complete and in for about a month. Maybe I should have applied ED.. 159/3.7.

Does the App go from "Application Received" to "Application Complete" or straight to "In Review"?
Mine has been App Rec. for a month now. I just want to make sure they aren't missing anything. I would email them but thought I'd ask here first. Thanks

Was a scholarship offer included in the small letter?
