Thank you! I'm pretty excited, Penn was definitely on my short list.

By the way, I can no longer edit the spreadsheet in google docs, it only allows me to view it :(

Here's an article that helps explain how different a 169 is from a 170: http://deadspin.com/5747728/why-there-a ... it-matters

This 170er got held at Northwestern last week and accepted at Notre Dame, which made me happy.

Hey all, long time stalker of TLS, just joined.

Stats are 170/3.8.

So far, in at UCLA with 75k. Applied 1/10, response via phonecall from Dean Schwartz 1/24.

I'm really getting my hopes up for Berkeley, though. UR 1/10, no word. Should I be worried that I haven't received a CR or FR? Thanks!

Hmmm, word in the Berkeley forum, based on research on previous years, is that that is not a great sign. But i didn't do this research myself and I don't know whether it's necessarily indicative. If you applied late (like, around the same time as UCLA), maybe they just haven't gotten to you yet.

I had a feeling this did not bode well for me! :(
Thanks, though!

And yes, I did apply late. Same time as UCLA (around 1/08-1/10).

+1. The best thing a splitter can do is to pick a top school and ED.

I wish I had the foresight to ED at NU because people with worse numbers than me got accepted and I got denied.

Great!

I think it would take 3-5 LSAT points to make my cycle better than it is now, and I know I was not going to get that. 171/172 maybe. I no longer feel bad for maybe missing those 2-3 questions.
