Probably as smart as most other T2 law students. Why ask questions like these?



I don't think anything is or should be off limits when making a choice that will affect the rest of my life.

Schools have different atmospheres... I really don't see the question as that rude.


I saw it as more asinine than rude, but OK.

If you're really concerned, your best bet is to come visit for yourself. I can tell you loads about the city of Pittsburgh and undergraduate life, but the law school is a much smaller microcosm of the university as a whole. Like most law schools, it will tend to attract a narrower range of backgrounds and interests than their parent universities.

How smart is the median Pitt Law student? How smart is the typical person with a 160 LSAT and 3.37 GPA? The numbers aren't direct measures of intelligence, so you will probably find smart people and not-so-smart people as your classmates.



I plan to visit in the next few weeks.

Pitt has, by far, shown the most interest in me as a prospective student.

I have a bit of a dilemma. For Pitt I only submitted my PS and I’m starting to feel nervous that I won’t get in especially after the ding from PennState. The thing is that I submitted a PS DS and Why PSU for PennState where I was expecting atleast a WL. I honestly don’t think that my DS was that bad and as for a Why Pitt essay, I submitted my app early enough to do ED so I don’t want them to ask “if I really want Pitt that bad then why didn’t you ED?” which is why I didn't do it in the first place
How could I show that I’m still interested without giving them a reason to ding me?

Definitely. I'm getting so irritated that I'm starting to not care anymore - and Pitt is one of my top choices.

I'm in the same boat, I've been UR for too long. I thought I would hear back last week when acceptances were coming out.

I guess a month in a half isn't enough time to decide on my application, even though I qualify for the deans scholarship.

That's cool, I think the s/he meant for him/herself, anyway. Not as community minded as you ;)
