Brooklyn's my #1 and the wait is torturous. My LSAT is at their 25% and my GPA is just above their median. I got $30,000 to St. John's and I am really happy about that, but I really cannot wait to hear back from Brooklyn. I'd flip out with an acceptance. Fingers crossed.

Brooklyn is just torturing me. My LSAT is at their median, my GPA above it, and no word since being IR 12/15. What *are* they doing? Also, they sent me some email this morning reminding me to apply for fellowships even if I haven't been admitted yet. Brooklyn is actually the biggest clit tease of a school ever. They also sent a gigantic packet once, but it was just law notes. Grrrr.

Should I take a xanax and stop reading into the actions of what is probably an extremely busy and backlogged adcomm? I'm supposed to be writing chapters of my grad thesis right now and all I can do is obsessively check the BLS application website for status updates. Is there any end in sight? dare I think it could be a happy one?


Stop being needy and annoying and you will improve your chances. Three LSAT addendums? LOCI before WL?

Am I reading your lsn data correctly? You got into NYU and Georgetown but your waiting, tortured, to hear back from Brooklyn? Call me an idiot, but why?



Because I just want answers. I don't want to withdraw from any of my schools. I just feel like I took the time to put together an application, the least they can do is take the time to read it and decide. Also, at this point with Brooklyn, it's almost a spite thing. Like they've had me waiting since 12/15. COME ON. Give me an answer. Even if you YP me. Just fucking give me an answer. I don't know. It kind of just makes me mad.

It's not personal, they don't care about you, and probably know that you're not going to attend. Just withdraw.

I agree, I think they know you have better options and are going to resist accepting you because the chances are so slim you'll actually attend. They have to maintain the guise of selectivity. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if they actually checked LSN and saw your profile with the acceptances. If your numbers are accurate, I assume it would be pretty easy to match the 3.78, 162, AA female applicant from Michigan. You even posted two grade point averages - LSAC and Degree! They know all about NYU and Georgetown, and they are not amused! :wink:

I mean, that's fine and all. Like I said, they could just reject me. I still want an answer.

I think you'll get in soon enough. They are probably just hoping you withdraw to save themselves from your inevitable rejection of BLS.

Boo you, sir. Boo you.

Get over it. If i was in at NYU/ Georgetown i would send my withdrawal letter immediately to any T2. Any scholarship money they offer you can be offered to someone else who can actually use it.

Don't give up just yet, it appears that many applicants have waited a substantial amount of time. I am waiting too. I have to believe that you will be getting a decision by early to mid March, given the impending seat deposit deadlines at many schools in April.

That is not how life works. I'm under no obligation to withdraw my aps any sooner than I feel like withdrawing them, just because someone else could use the spot. If they're super concerned about my not going, make the choice easy for me and reject me, but don't just leave me here.

Well I agree you are under no obligation to withdraw, and since you haven't been accepted yet, you're not holding someone else up from being accepted. Sit tight I say. As you know URM applicants have very random cycles, and their reviews tend to be much more holistic in nature. I'm Puerto Rican and my cycle has been all over the place thus far. Perhaps they just aren't sure if they can accept another LSAT below the median yet. BLS doesn't have a deadline so they may be looking for some latecomers with 163+.

Edit: Plus its still early enough. A lot of people don't hear back until march.

Edit #2: In my reply I assumed you applied for the full time program, for which the latest numbers are 160/163/164. The part time program's median is 158, so you would be a very strong candidate on that front, but I think they give preference to those who express an interest in that program.

Yeah, that's what I thought too, but the ABA official data says 160/163/164. I always tend to go by that, but maybe its not as up to date as Brooklyn's posted statistics. I don't know. Either way, 163 median seems on point.

I've heard mid-March around here.
I've seen some people here say that their admit letters mention that they're being considered for merit aid - anyone know if that's in the snail-mailed letter only? Because there's no mention of that at all in the admit e-mail I received. I haven't received my admitted students package in the mail yet, and it sounds like it's going to be a week or two for that to arrive.

I just got the snail mail letter yesterday and it mentions being considered for merit aid and suggested a couple of fellowships to apply for. They said "Our Scholarship Committee plans to announce most of its decisions by mid-March". No admitted students kit yet. fwiw, I was admitted 2/17.

I just called, because I would like to figure out/negotiate scholarship info and would need to know sooner than later. The lady said early March, although I think (she was kind of rushed and I was trying hard to get my questions in, so it was a little hard to understand all that she was saying) she wasn't 100% sure, but she said the next couple of weeks and then earlier rather than late March.
