Hello, still in China?


You are almost my numbers twin! You have a better LSAT though :) I'm always excited to find people with my numbers...there are so few of us!


I know- there were four people on LSN last year with my LSAT and a GPA within .05 either way.


Ah, yes I definitely feel your pain. I end up staring at the same few data points obsessively even though I know there's no more information to be found, haha. Half the people never update their statuses...and then the rest are always divided between extremely terrible cycles and unusually amazing cycles. Hopefully the years after us will have more information!

Yay for splitters! I hope we all have fabulous cycles. I'm 3.25/174.

aaaand this is why many of the people posting here are splitters: during exams when most people are studying, we're here procrastinating by posting in this thread.

Hey guys, just checking in. I have a 3.5x and a 174 on my only LSAT. I'm really hoping NYU shows some splitter love this cycle. I would also appreciate $$ from Michigan and Penn. One can always dream, right?

I'd be down with that, as long as we're supposed to pave this uneven meandering road with awesome T14 acceptances :)

you're hardly a splitter. in all likelihood, you're above your ugrad's median gpa with a 3.5x

How is this relevant to whether he is a splitter? He is below the median GPA of all T14 and below the 25% of all but Georgetown. There is a very real chance he is out at one or more of CCN, and he has close to no shot at HYS.

Welcome to the club. I am right with you in the 17X 3.5X camp.

Do we really need to have this debate every 3 pages of this thread? Splitter = LSAT above 75th at target school, GPA below 25th at target school. Easy schmeasy.

TLS is geared toward T14 and other top schools, and at those schools, why yes, a 3.5 is often under the 25th percentile. (Don't I know it :( .)

Oh well, though.

3.37/167. W&M is ideal but I'm keeping my options open.

Splitterish type checking in. I'm a 3.42/174, and I basically blanketed from Columbia (ED) on down until about 20. In at GULC and William and Mary as of now, scared shitless of the rest of the cycle :(. Hate being a splitter.

Thanks. I know I'm a "marginal spliiter," but I still have good reason to worry, I think. Fortunately I'd take NYU over Columbia or Chicago, so that's my real target. And I didn't even bother with a Harvard app.

actually the past years' splitter threads set the GPA cutoffs as 3.0-3.3 and LSAT of 170+.

Anyone with a 3.5+ and a 170+ has no worry whatsoever at t-14 whereas us real splitters have to deal with a sweat just to get into 1 or 2 t-14 schools

Not that I really care that you guys participate in the thread but just saying we have way more anxiety as splitters than you 3.4+ people

Congrats everybody!

Just for the record, I'm pretty sure we're all equally anxious, numbers be damned.

Those damn GPA floors...

I need to build me a time machine and lecture my college self on how that 0.2 does make a difference.
