Looking at last years LSN and not seeing anyone with my GPA admitted is kind of tough to justify throwing ~$70 out there. Especially when people with maybe a point higher on LSAT and .1 higher GPA get waitlisted.

I've got some apps (Iowa, Wisconsin, Alabama) that LSP gives me a Consider but LSN shows nobody getting in with my numbers/1 or 2 points higher lsat last year. These arent schools I'm dead set on attending but would like to consider them...


if you are a consider on LSP then 25-49% are at/below your index # so.....


LSP is a good gauge but how can I be a consider for a school that waitlist/rejects people with better numbers than I ? for example Iowa Nobody outside of URMs has gotten in in the past 2 years with numbers close to mine....

Just because there wasn't someone on LSN, doesn't mean NOBODY did.

I apologize for not hunting around for your numbers... But I was accepted to Iowa this year with a sub 3.0 GPA...

What would you have gained by going to UF instead of your school?

2.9x/164 - waiting on Dec score with a shot for 167 def didnt miss more than October which hopefully gives me 165 at least. All comes down to how my LG edu-guesses worked out.

Splitter Love from MICHIGAN today :D They are absolutely my first choice, so, even though I still have apps pending at Columbia, Duke, UVA, a couple of others, I'm pretty much considering my cycle over. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

Waitlisted at UIUC. Meh. There was very little chance I'd go there anyway.

Has anyone else just not heard anything from any of their schools? I'm starting to feel like a damn leper.

When did you submit your applications? And...what schools? Some schools don't respond until at least January to anyone.

Also, if it's any consolation I've noticed that a lot of schools like to take the reverse splitters first...pad those GPA medians.

Aw, well maybe there's hope, yet. I submitted in late October & went complete in early November. Applied to UGA, Georgia State, Tulane, South Carolina, Villanova, and Indiana-Bloomington.

Outright ding from UVA ED today. 3.2/172. I know I got my stuff in a little late (Dec 15 because I was waiting for Michigan to deny me), but I wasn't expecting the outright ding. I know another >3.0 170 guy was outright dinged too, but foolishly thought the 2 points would protect me. Oh well, travel stipend from WUSTL today.

Anyone think it would be foolish to throw last minute apps to Cornell and GT? I don't know how I'd like GT, but I'm starting to fear I'll get shut out of the T14.

I would if you want T14. Definitely send an app to Cornell ASAP, possibly hold out on GT if you want to ED later (they have a late ED deadline, I think? Somebody corrrect me if I'm wrong). GT ED may be your best shot at T14 at the moment, unless you have WE and aced your interviews with NU.

I've noticed GT tends to be more forgiving to later applicants than other schools, maybe because the large class size doesn't fill up as fast. If you have the money I'd say send GT an app, cornell too. Can't hurt.

You would say this, but it's just so hard to put yourself in those shoes as a splitter. You say that and it just makes me think, "let's swap, and then I'll just retake." I'm not trying to sound like a dbag either, I just think it sucks that you can't retake your GPA. Speaking out of ignorance, obviously, I would much rather be a reverse splitter.
