I have 2 years WE so I thought about trying for NU, but I decided I wouldn't be willing to pay sticker to go there, even if I got in.

Damn. I'm awful at names in general, let alone message board handles.

Haha, no biggie... sorry to hear about UMinn... sounds like it would have been a good fit for you. I thought about applying there until I realized I wouldn't want to spend 3 years in that much cold, much less any time beyond that.

SuperSplitter + Narrow school range FTL.

Sorry, no offense, but you're not a super splitter. Just a good old fashioned splitter. :-)


ETA: If you guys want a good URM comparison, he got into UIUC and Minnesota with a 2.99/167 whereas I got waitlisted with a 2.94/171. Although it's entirely possible his application was better than mine too, just to clarify.

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


Did you do ED for Michigan?


I hope not, you will get huge Scholly money from MVP with those numbers! good shot at CCN also? Shoot higher


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!


I accidently scrolled down the first page instead of the last. Recently you got a Darrow right? Guess things worked out just like you could have hoped. Good call on not ED'ing.

Ha, yup, things worked out even better than I expected! I was thinking I might be in the running for $67.5k. Definitely very excited to start at Michigan in four months!

Good luck, awahoya!

Pretty good cycle for a REAL splitter so far. In at Stetson, IUb(120k), UGA, and FSU. Dinged at Illinois. ~11 more to hear from.

can't believe I just saw this thread.

hello everyone, super splitter here.

2.7 gpa, 170, URM and 4 years of work experience (with labor, which is the type of law I want to pursue)

Only school i've heard back from is Boalt (flat out rejection), so I am starting to get worried that I might have aimed too high.

Boalt flat out dinged me as well, but no surprise there. I don't know if you only concentrated on the T14, but we have almost identical numbers (2.73, 170 here), I have over 5 years work experience, and I'm non-URM. This is me on LSN http://lawschoolnumbers.com/slamp

I hope you get in somewhere you want. Where else have you applied?

So from what I've been reading, i think boalt REALLY does not like low gpas. I did not keep it to t14, but they were all within the top 30ish.

Stanford
UC Hastings
UC Davis
UCLA
USC
U Minnesota
UChicago
Northwestern
U Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Columbia
U Maryland
Georgetown
UVA
William and Mary

Congrats on your acceptances. Have you decided where you're going to end up? That IU-Bloomington scholarship does sound mighty tempting.

Boalt is not exactly splitter friendly (though I will continue to hope for the best until they outright ding me.) Reverse splitters seem to do well though.

Any other splitters on hella waitlists? I'm on 4. Hoorah. :roll:

Also held in 4 places.
