agora139, you are my numbers twin! Also in at Berkeley as a splitter off CR, which was surprising but also very exciting. (I'm from CA originally, but have been working OOS for the past few years...definitely want to get back near my family eventually.) My cycle is going pretty well so far, but I still haven't heard much about $$. Still no dings, but I'm sure HLS and SLS will take care of that for me soon!

In
Texas
NYU
Berkeley
Michigan
GULC (also applied to PILS program)

Waiting
HLS
SLS
CLS
UCLA
Penn
Duke

I know I am a high shifted splitter 3.5/168-->177, but so far this cycle has been kind to me (and I applied no earlier than January 6). Accepted at both CLS and NYU and in CR2 for Berkeley. Haven't heard back from the other 9 schools I have applied to and I am sure there will be a couple dings, but I am very happy. I also noticed with the CR1 round at Berkeley that a lot of semi-splitters were accepted (which doesn't usually seem to be their MO). I think this cycle might end up being more splitter friendly than usual due to the drop in applications and LSAT takers.

Not a news flash, but being a splitter makes for weird cycles. WL'd at IUB, 60K at WUSTL.

174, 3.30... so far only waitlists or have not heard from schools.
No rejections yet, no acceptances either. :shock:

Our numbers are really similar, and my cycle is going well also. Good luck with Berk!

Dude, if I were you I'd wait and reapply, your numbers are way better than your outcome. Refine your app and ED somewhere.

agreed, ED UVA... you will be golden. I feel like W&L hadno idea what they were doing this year. You are over qualified there.

WUSTL with 28k/year is a pretty decent option though.

You are having a rough time. Hopefully something pans out for you. I wouldn't think you have had such a rough go of it with your numbers. Did you check your apps for mistakes?

Yeah, many times. I didn't write any Why essays so it's probably at least partially my fault. People have read my essays and said they were good so I know that's not the issue. FWIW, I'd be very happy going to WUSTL and UIUC with the money I got so I'm not too upset. Not even sure I'd go to CCN sticker over either of them since I'm not gunning for biglaw and I'm employment secure.

Did you get an official "hold" from NYU, or just no update like the rest of us?

I was ED, so I was deferred.
