If you really scored much lower than your average, and you can rationally explain why you want to shoot higher (or get more money, which is very very valid), then go for it. Upside: higher schools and/or more money, down side: 1 year of WE and waiting for economy to improve. You can probably justify the downside against 1 year of lost biglaw salary.

All very good advice. Signing up for June LSAT...

Now everyone get back to freaking out about HLS. :)

aww thx guys, was just a hail mary app, so definitely not surprised. I was shocked I got held, not rejected, to begin with. GL to rest of you. I was in the 1/10 batch of holds and got my ding at 4pm EST.

Rejected after a hold in January. My numbers are relatively bad so no surprise :)
Good luck to everyone else!

This is a bloodbath -- sorry to all those fallen soldiers today.
My office mate just proposed that they may be going in alphabetical order- anyone dinged with a last name from the latter half of the alphabet?

I hope, that'll mean I'm already passed over. Don't count on it though.

Checking in: UR date in Oct, held 1/10/11. I'll post what happens, though given my less-than-Harvardian numbers (3.4/174), I'm not expecting much.
