Yeah, I posted that, then reread your post, turned on my brain, and figured it was the top quarter. I was on my phone so I couldn't edit the post, though.

Eh, I've been watching my 6 month old niece since Saturday, so sleep deprivation has made my brain a bit slow to kick into gear lately.

Btw, babysitting a 6 month old for a week is the best birth control ever.

Yes, I hang out regularly with a toddler. It's an awesome way to get all that out of your system consequence-free haha.

I was in that spot for almost 2 years, but I got to live w/my bf instead of my family (big plus!)

It was awful. I definitely feel for you. =( This economy is the worst.

Wow, those situations suck.
But as Tonio said, at least there's alcohol and video games.

Yeah, how is it? I'm more of a sports game guy, personally, and I've been loving me some MLB The Show '11 since it came out last week.

It's meh. Singleplayer sucks. Beat the entire game in like 3.5 hrs. Multiplayer is fun, but probably not as good as COD.

Would that 75th percentile be for both LSAT and GPA, or either or...either/or would be great...

could be either.

on a side note. Are any apps going to be going into review this week, or will they wait till after spring break?

Either/or would be awesome for me, but it might be based on index numbers, which is also awesome.

No, mine was complete, then went to admit. Yours is just taking longer.

Are you asking your chances to get off of the wait list or do you actually not know what waitlisted means? I am assuming you wanna know your chances, and my understanding with waitlists is they are never very good. I wouldn't bank on any school if your wait listed. Some schools actually have a number program where you are like 112 or wutever on the list, no idea how STCL does it.



That's what I meant. Should have worded the question better.

In the past years on LSN it seems like most who were waitlisted were later accepted rather than rejected. I know it is only a sample of applicants but it seems like most people got in.



I called yesterday - they said 80 people have been waitlisted so far, 40 of those will be admitted. There is no ranking but they probably won't admit from the waitlist until May.

From the thread for last year, it looks like they started admitting people off the waitlist the week after the 2nd deposit was due.
