I'm not so certain about that. LSN numbers show low LSAT and high LSAT, and median and high GPA. I was admitted with a below median GPA and a 162 LSAT, and I was admitted...well...early?

But weren't you a special circumstance, though?


Only for the reason of being admitted roughly a few days earlier, yes. Aside from that, I'm a white, out-of-state male. Unless STCL likes people planning to go JAG (I've always wondered if any law school likes that, as it messes with their employment stats), I don't personally feel there was anything different that affected me. Chances are, to a large extent, you are right but they could just be going down the pile.


If I recall correctly the Dean is a retired rear-admiral in JAG or something like that...

At the open house they said that the admissions council randomly reviews the files. If they unanimiously agree that you should be accepted you will receive an email. If they do not all agree, your filed will go to another group who will review it.

I emailed admissions about scholarship info, and they told me they decide at the end of March. They said they try to be mindful of April 1st seat deposit deadlines, so I guess we'll see how that pans out. =/

I've been complete since the 7th of January, and still havens heard anything. Although it might be because my gpa is below median and my lsat is right at the 75th percentile.

Yeah it is likely that I will be the last to hear if I do get the opportunity to hear some good news. My GPA is at the 25th and LSAT is at the median.

I am currently doing my undergrad Texas Tech.

I'm waiting on loyola and south texas right now. The painful part is they were the schools i wanted to go to and felt i had the best chance at, and they are taking the longest. If i could have reversed the order id be alot happier, or atleast know my current situation
