Maybe they are finally going to cave in and play the US News game. Stanford was doing something similar right? People troll against those "sub par" LSAT stats all day on here.


I doubt it, but here's to hoping.

Ironically, it wouldn't work out better for me if you are right.

No! Berkeley's my best RD shot at a T14. Don't keep a 166er down! :mrgreen:

Cornell's in second place, but LSN bodes a much poorer picture; 166s are near-universal WLs/Rejects for non-URMs.

You already have Michigan, Artichoke. Pleeease let me have Berkeley? Pretty please? With a BigLaw offer on top?

I think 171+. I remember telling myself don't expect to get called this week.

Phone is still sitting on the table in front of me though.


Shoot I hope you're right (but I also hope they get back to you as well!)

Either way, at least it's something to get excited about this week... none of my apps have had movement for weeks.

I thought I read on another thread you got in somewhere... I just can't remember where. That's probably creepy...

My crappy T-Mobil service will be significantly limiting my mobility.

My shitty iphone4 significantly limits MY mobility. I live ten minutes from downtown Seattle and yet can barely catch a bar at my house. How does that work? What a rip.

Whoa, they are fast. Sent my app in late on Friday, they received it today, and I'm already under review. Was it this fast for everyone else? It's my first UR so I'm pumped.
