Submitted in late November; complete early December, almost uniformly.
Regular Decision. Non-URM.
* = not admitted, just scholarship interview

Good-luck (especially to those in Berkeley and Penn CR)!


Neonx, congrats! That's a great list of schools. Do you have some pretty incredible softs?


IIRC, he's not much a semi-splitter at all. Just really good numbers

Sorry to correct you, but, actually, I'm completely a semi.

The criteria:
An LSAT between 165 and 169.
An LSAC UGPA above 3.80 (lowered from 3.85 by popular demand).

I PM'd you, Ialdabaoth.

Thanks for speaking for me. But actually, I'm completely a semi.

The criteria:
An LSAT between 165 and 169.
An LSAC UGPA above 3.80 (lowered from 3.85 by popular demand).


Maybe Flips just meant really good numbers for this thread. I'm thinking like 169, ~4.0+ would be pretty amazing for any school except YH. Either way though, again, congrats!

Ahh, okay, sorry for misinterpreting. =)

I'll release my numbers in PM or after the cycle is over.

Which if I remember correctly is about what he's working with. I'm not knocking him or anything, just saying he shouldn't be too surprised that he got into NYU and Penn and such. I wish I had those few extra pts on the LSAT working for me, but I don't and my cycle remains wholly unpredictable.

123kl, congrats, that's awesome! I wasn't meaning to imply that 169/4.0+ made YH impossible, just more difficult than mid-170s.

Gotcha. I also didn't know what IIRC meant. Looked it up. Haha.

Penn had another bloodbath today. =( Sorry.

At least their decisions are predictable (all on Friday; calls in the morning; WL/dings after 4.)

167 / 3.85 here with little luck so far: denied at Virginia, held at Harvard, on reserve at Columbia, wait-listed at Chicago...it seems that my numbers are just low enough to get me rejected by the mid-T14 while my softs are just strong enough to give me false hope at getting into the schools at the top. Ah, well :?

Congrats to everyone! Im a semi-reverse splitter-3.88/168 and it seems like the schools I thought I had a good shot at and would love to go to (UCLA/Cornell/etc) the people with my numbers who got in have amazing softs. Im in awe of their hard work, stage in life and the struggles that they went through, but I must admit, I'm feeling super unconfident about my cycle-this coming fall. I'm pretty...average compared to you all. D=

Haha to be honest, I think I got really lucky. I don't know what they liked about my application.. it might be because of my unusual background in science, and interest in doing a joint JD-MPH

Oh, if you had a 4.0 in a hard science then that probably set you apart from the pack for sure
