then you are me


Hate to break it to you, but if your profile is right you are not above either median.


Really? Their GPA median is at/above 3.88? Wow, I must need new info or a better memory.

Not you, the guy who responded to you. Medians were 3.85/170

Waitlisted today...actually not bad considering my #s. Don't expect to be accepted off the wait-list.

Got the WL today. Guess they didn't believe my why UVA? First I've heard back from anywhere. Hope its not a judgement on my cycle.

You're right, I mixed up their medians with Northwestern (I'm in that thread too). And I read tipler's post as at or above, not just above, so I guess I was only half off. Apparently I'm not reading too closely right now

Not meant to be an attack, but NW's median is 3.8... :?

Just got the wait-list email. OOS RD. Wrote why UVA. 3.49/173. Oh well. I really wanted UVA just not enough to ED and pass on the money I though I would get (and did) at umich. One LOCI coming up.

From TLS article on Northwestern: "median undergraduate GPA is a 3.7." Not saying TLS is infallible but that is where I am getting my stats since its convenient while I am in the forum.

Completely understandable. Just to let you know though, TLS profiles are outdated.
Here's a thread with the updated medians: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=128236
And this shows straight from NW the new stats: http://www.law.northwestern.edu/admissions/profile/
Hope this helps.

Sounds like UVA has had some major matriculation issues in the past. They are exercising extreme caution with admits. Sorry to all those who got WL'd.

I see. This is definitely helpful, thanks. For me it only really makes me feel worse about Northwestern, but I did write (IMO) an awesome "why Northwestern" essay.

Anyway, back to UVa... hopefully we all hear something soon

I felt ok about my LSAT until seeing this. Exact same as you only minus 1 LSAT point, a Michigan acceptance, and Michigan money. Did get that UVA waitlist though.

I'm OOS RD, above both medians, no why VA, app complete 11/3 -> status updated 1/4, and I got an email yesterday (1/6) asking me to give the office a call. Hoping it's an acceptance, but, since I am currently doing a research project in Asia and in a different time zone, I haven't been able to confirm yet. I was really starting to glumly resign myself to the waitlist and am pretty stoked right now.

Judging by the answer to a similar question a couple of pages back, it looks like you are- congrats!

.........

Just got the WL e-mail. Non-URM, RD, OOS splitter. No why UVA, will start working on it now.

Mmm, I don't think that list is completely right. Don't know where OP got those medians, but if you look here...http://www.law.upenn.edu/cpp/employer/about/ the Penn median GPA is 3.8, not 3.85 (unless they rounded down, which is highly unlikely)

Yah, received an email this morning letting me know I'm in with $30k per year. Now I'm really stoked.

Anyway, I guess there is hope for us OOSers after all. Don't let the long wait get you too down.

It's about 95% right, I'd say. Penn's median last year was 3.82, according to ABA data:
http://officialguide.lsac.org/Release/S ... BA2926.pdf

The Penn page you cited says in "recent years" (emphasis on plural years), the median has been 3.8. It makes sense that it's been climbing since then.

Finally in, after 4 months of UR!

OOS RD. Submitted early September with no why UVA. Submitted LOCI and Why UVA a few days ago.

Status Checker still reads "Pending Review / Decision 9/14", as it has for four months.

Congrats!!

Also, I just checked my status checker, and it's now changed to "Congratulations!"

UVA is adorable :)

Just got my e-mail confirming receipt of my ED contract/letting me know that I'm complete. How long can I expected to wait for an acceptance, and when can I begin assuming that I'll get dinged. It's my understanding that acceptances come in pretty quickly. Keep in mind that I received my e-mail on Friday at 6pm Virginia time.

I believe they say 15 days from complete if you're OOS, and 15 days from verification of in-state residency if you're in-state.
