I most likely will be a super-splitter. :) 3.0 GPA and I'm very confident that I performed above my PT average of 177 on this test. 180 is possible, perhaps.

I just about cried today when I calculated that basically 2 complete screw ups from soph. year dragged my GPA down below 3. One was because the internet at my hotel I was taking an online test went down and i missed deadline, other was a math class I had a B going into the final and came out with a D-. Hopefully my lil upward trend gets me a worthless pat on the back or something by the adcoms

Definitely a splitter here. Even if I went below my PT average I believe I'd still be considered a splitter given my GPA. Will post stats when I get my LSAT score. Crossing my fingers for that 170+.

What are some of the splitter friendly schools that you plan on applying to?

Wash U
IUIC
Minn

Those are the splitter friendly schools that I know of.

Count me in! I'm 3.1/177 from the June 10 test
I'm applying ED Michigan, but also to Chicago, Columbia, NYU (no chance at any of these), UVA, Georgetown, Duke, Cornell, Vandy, UCLA, WUSTL, UNC...basically all over the place.

Good luck to everyone!

I'm a 3.5/177. I'm hoping for Michigan, also applying to Duke, Cornell, UVA, potentially Penn if I can bring myself to write another essay, Georgetown, Wash U, Vandy, then things like BC/BU, Minnesota, Notre Dame, W&M.

Good luck everyone! May we all wind up at our preferred schools :D

Can I ask why you aren't aiming higher? You could very reasonably snag one of CCN with those #s...but enjoy M with $$ either way :)

No offense, but as a URM why did you retake a 173?

I'm also a splitter applying this cycle.

3.3/162..... but I think I did better this time. Hope so anyway, cause I'm shooting NYU and down the T14, also GW/BU/BC. If 175+ ED to NYU, it worries me they average scores though, might be better off giving Penn a try. It's an outside shot either way, but I'm also considering ED GW, with the automatic full ride, just not sure how competitive my numbers would be. Maybe I'm being delusional... :lol:

I ended up not EDing Michigan because of the money issue. Hopefully that will turn out to have been a wise decision.

I'm not shooting for CCN because I don't want to go to any of them. I really dislike big cities (I grew up in and then near NYC and I would be very happy to never go back). But thanks for the encouragement! Hopefully Michigan agrees with your evaluation!
