You guys! How can you expect the Universe to be generous to you when you're not generous to the Universe? :D

Get rid of that unseemly negativity. ;)


If I got WL'd at UIUC, how can I get into NU with a LSAT score 6 pts below the median LOL

For the record, I got WL'd at UIUC and in at NU without ED.

I just went from 12/6 to 1/12


11/3 to 1/12, was complete 12/6 I think



I wonder if I'm screwed because my complete update was fairly quick, 1/3------>1/11.

Doubtful. LSP for NU was "weak consider" and for UIUC was "strong consider." Have hope. Even though it is the worst of all evils and prolongs your torment.

They will send out decisions by e-mail this afternoon.

twitter says 'Decisions today! Notifications will go out via email this afternoon, so be on the lookout!'

I don't know. I'm pretending they're reviewing in order of LSAT high to low, which is why I haven't heard yet. Of course, once they get to my app, they'll be blown away despite my LSAT. ;)

/wishful thinking. yes, I know this isn't actually the case.

Complete 11/1 and no movement on my status...do they send dings via email as well or should I be on the lookout for an envelope? I'm not expecting much since I didn't interview or submit the evaluation forms. I couldn't justify asking my boss to do more after he already wrote me a letter! (3.1/170 5 yrs WE)
