The reverse splitters thread should be the retake thread. This thread is just for people who have good numbers but want a label.

And I can say that, as a 4.0/168 who seems to meet this thread's criteria.

But applied to - Duke, UVA, Mich, Cornell, Penn, Vandy, UCLA

Hopefully I will be able to toss around a few options but we'll see.

Complicated GPA: 3.68 first year at ND, then 4.1 for part of seminary, then 9.8/10 from pontifical university. No LSAC GPA calculated because of the foreign institution... my guess is 3.85ish.

LSAT: 165

Applied to Harvard, Columbia, UVA, GULC, ND, W&M, GMU...

No acceptances yet.
No rejections yet.
No waitlisteds yet.

URM (Mexican-American)

Even Harvard is a possibility (albeit a slight one).

Does anyone have any anecdotes as to how sympathetic NYU and Columbia are to semi-reverse splitters? Just wondering because I'm in this camp as well...

LOL. I love you, R6, but I'm sure you're aware that 170 is the median at many of the lower T14s, making it an appropriate cut-off point, in my opinion.

I'll begrudgingly accept your 3.84. :lol:



How 'bout a 169 / 3.835? :mrgreen:
I'm a full on splitter at CLS.

But seriously, this thread is very welcoming. It's easy to forget on TLS (where it seems everyone's score is a 17x) that us 16xer's still outscored a huge majority of testakers! Yay us! :D

Everyone in here qualifies for MENSA... you guys are very smart, I think I was just slightly luckier (on test day). I would actually admit that I was only expecting 167-8, so maybe now I can join?

By popular demand, I have lowered the GPA requirement from 3.85 to 3.80. All other requirements will stand, however.

R6: Because you live in my home city and I like you, I will grant you honorary "semi-reverse splitter status." Wear it with pride, my friend.

No other allowances will be made at this time. :D
