I'm still on hold at most schools pending a February retake. So far dinged at UVA and Vandy and in at WUSTL. Pending at 6 schools, one of which is a certain reject, and one of which is a near certain waitlist. Not a fun splitter cycle.

Seriously? Waitlisted at Colorado. Fuck, there goes #1 and #2 within a week of each other.

Looks like it's:
Iowa - Instate
Denver- 20k/year or
St. Thomas full-ride

3.49/172/2 years WE. Having a good cycle so far but there are a few that area really bugging me (Michigan, but even more so - really, Vandy, I apply 10/25 with connections to the school, a Why Vandy, send in an LOCI, get an additional LOR for the school, and STILL have to watch endless people who applied in November, December, and EVEN JANUARY get in with me getting not a peep?!! Dammit! / rant)

Accepted:
Penn (big surprise)
Texas (hell yeah)
GULC
Cornell
Boston College
UWashington
ColoradoU
Tulane

Waitlisted:
UVA (no surprise, but this one hurt)
UCLA (see UVA)

Waiting:
NYU (UR 11/1, so not looking good)
Duke (") / Michigan / Vandy -->my number ones at the start of the cycle; typical
Chicago
Northwestern
Berkeley (haha)
USC

Aw man I'm sorry to hear that. If I don't get a really awesome scholarship, I will withdraw from Colorado and tell them to admit you. I hear Denver does very well in the state, so not a bad option. Iowa's a great school, too.

I feel like this cycle has been more reverse-splitter friendly. Thoughts?

It really does seem that boalt won't even consider an application if the GPA isn't above a certain level.

And I have to confess, I've been following your posts a little since we applied to so many of the same schools. Def let me know as you hear back. Even though your GPA is much better than mine, I can delude myself that your good cycle means I might not do so bad.

Boalt - rejected
Penn - wl

I'll check in, too;

UVA - Ding
Northwestern - Ding
UMinn - WL
W&L - WL
WUSTL - In with $84,000
UCLA - Nothing yet
Columbia (lol) - Nothing yet
University of Washington - Nothing yet
William & Mary - Nothing yet
Seattle University - In with $15k/yr, top 25% stipulation (kind of a weak offer, honestly. I was hoping for a full ride)

WUSTL seems really aggressive this cycle.

Just got WL'd by Davis. I really liked Davis--it's the first law school I wanted to go to, I liked the idea of a small college town, and my wife's family lives very close by.

Now I'm convinced I won't get into any T1 schools and my future is dark and dismal.

Hold me, splitters thread.

(Updating to add new admittance)

Weak splitter here - 2.8, 165 (highest LSAT). Had an earlier 158 LSAT that I think will be largely overlooked, given the big point jump. Non-trad student out of UG for 16 years. Good WE, decent softs. I applied in mid to late January, thanks to the slow release of the Dec. LSAT scores. :evil:

In:
St. John's $$$
CUNY
Rutgers $$
Brooklyn (waiting to hear about $)

Waiting:
Columbia (hey, why not)
NYU (ditto)
GULC (wishing I had thought to also apply for PT program, but I didn't. Oops.)
Fordham (my top choice unless I pull off a T14 miracle)
Cardozo
Boston U.
Boston College
Northeastern
Seton Hall

To be honest, because they wouldn't give me a fee waiver. Spent the 1000 dollars I had for apps on my first choices, then just used all the fee waivers I was offered and WUSTL wasn't one of them.

Did you ask for one? They were incredibly receptive to e-mail requests.
