Cheer up! All is not lost. You might come off the wait list. I don't think I will be attending, so you can have my spot.

I think I have gotten a holistic review even though according to what TLS says, I am not URM.
I have gotten into 4 schools ranked T14-T22, and 2 waitlists above the T14 level.
Have faith everyone. I think they do provide a holistic review.

TLS saying you are not a URM doesn't mean anything. What did you check on your applications?

if your GPA was that high and your LSAT was anywhere near the 25th of a T14, you have the numbers for T14-T22 and T14 waitlists and were not a holistic review. just sayin'

I'm not exactly understanding your statement. But, yes, the gpa was that high (from an Ivy), and lsat was at or below the 25th for the schools I got into ranked T14-T22. But, the extracurrics and PS were awesome in my humble opinion.

The apps don't have any check boxes for "URM." I checked off the complete truth. "White" and "other Hispanic". I checked both boxes.

i was going off the info in your profile....also, if you're white hispanic, that gives you some URM points, which are invaluable

It's getting to be a serious problem for me. I'm hoping It'll get better once I get my first decision. Or once I commit somewhere. Or once I graduate law school. Or when I'm dead.

So exactly how many people are withdrawing or have withdrawn their MN applications at this point? And, if you've withdrawn, which school(s) is (/are) your top choice(s)?

*Let's face it; none of us are going to sleep well tonight, so we might as well have something about which to post.
