3.4x/167. I guess I shouldn't be too upset that I didn't study more for the logic games? Oh well we'll see. Knocks on wood.

I'm 167, 3.08 from CA. Got $20k :) GL


how did you find out about scholarship?


Hmm, guess my post from earlier was wrong. Scholarship money comes in the mail - it isn't reported to you when they call to accept.

Wow wtf really? This really annoys me... I think I'll probably withdraw at this point. I dislike Minnesota's admission practices. Screw the waitlist.

Looks like Colorado, Iowa, or St. Thomas it is.

Lol this has to be YP. I was 3.6 169 w/ blah app and got in.

Poster a couple days ago was right:

GPA - (3.2 - 3.7) + LSAT (167-169) - IN
GPA - (<3.2) + LSAT (<171) - WL due to ?
GPA - (>3.2) + LSAT (>169) - WL clearly due to YP

*Does not apply to special cases/URM

Well, at least I wasn't the only "sure thing" to get hit with the WL. Maybe this means there isn't something horribly, horribly wrong with my app?

My greatest fear in the admissions process (and I hope that this is an invalid one) is that while my stats are solid for this school (I hope!) I'm worried that I'll be hampered by comparisons to my classmates (some of whom are ridiculous). Even though my GPA is all right, I'm barely, just barely, outside the top 50% (not top 50% university-wide, mind you, just in the law school applicant pool at my school). Kinda sucks cause my school is HUGE and TONS of people apply to law school. Crap.

Then again, unlike some other schools I'm applying to (like USC) my university is not a "top feeder" so I don't think there are tons of people applying (I'm in the northeast...somewhere). Darn it. Well, my one solace is that my rank compared to the other law applicants at my school don't affect the rankings, only my gpa and lsat does.

I'm sure it will arrive as soon as I post this, but I am in the IR 1/21 crowd and I didn't receive an email today.

Ugh. Not willing to take that bet.

Status is still IR, though.

Add me to the waitlist...list. I actually did really like Minnesota, but realistically, I wasn't going to go, so they probably made the right call. Oh well.

my wait list email from Minnesota was followed promptly by an acceptance call from UVa. I'm okay with this turn of events :)

Ok this is seriously ridiculous.

How funny would it be if they mixed up a waitlist pile with an accept pile? I can't believe some of the shit I'm seeing on here though, it's insane.

Should be able to confirm or disprove this theory in a few minutes...

165/3.6, IR 1/7. I feel like my head is on the guillotine and the executioner is late to our date
