But I will be serious. There were never enough 170+ to fill the seats, because 170 is only the median for up to MVP. Some 170's obviously have low GPAs. In last cycle, where there were enough 170+ to hold the desired medians, splitters were probably not taken. This year there are reasonably less 170's, so they have to take some splitters - but that will drag on the GPA median. So it's best to have 170/median. Value is a little higher this year compare to last. Reasonable guess. But take my words with a grain of salt. I only scored a 170.

Seeing that we all scored 170 ITT, no one is smarter than anyone else :o :)

Gosh... I feel like the LSAT is the IQ test for all law school applicants... Sigh...

kinda still trying to wrap my head around the uva ed rejection. there are way less applicants this year and with a median lsat and a "median" (no gpa) gpa it seems like i'd be a good bet for them to keep up their numbers. i'm just hoping that it was because they over admitted last year but i guess the rest of my cycle will tell me whats what

Has anybody heard back from NU and UM? If so, how long was your turnaround time...

I applied to Michigan on 11/1 and didn't get accepted until this week. No hold email. It was a reallllly long wait, but I know others who got in after about a month after applying.

Rejected from both in the past few days. I sent all my apps in on 12/7.

Thanks, everyone. I'm getting impatient with both of those. I applied the first week of December too and the status checkers seem completely pointless, they both have remained in "complete" status for the last two months. Sorry about your dings from those two, super6.

Michigan wasn't a surprise, NU kind of was but I looked at their LSN and I think they let in too many people on ED because there was, I think, a 170/3.48 that got in on ED and I got rejected with 170/3.6 (Another 170/3.6 got WL'd).
By the way, Michigan decision arrived via snail mail with nothing on the status checker to suggest I should have been expecting mail (it just said "complete"). Could be different for admits, however, and your GPA certainly gives you better odds of that.

Thanks, I'm remaining positive but it's frustrating to see people who submitted later than I did hearing back. I'm really loving the thought of Penn right now, but I just want to know about all of the others before I finalize any decision in my mind.

Where are you leaning toward?

Probably Duke, especially if I get into the dual-degree program, but I haven't heard back from them yet. I was WL'd at UVA so that probably means the same for Duke but I could honestly say they were my top choice in a Why Duke/LOCI if that happens.

I got WLed today too but I'm not really interested in U of Chicago anymore. I heard it's super stuffy and way too competitive... I sent my withdraw email a few minutes ago

I'm still trying for the perfect score on acceptances as long as I don't get dinged anywhere. Maybe they'll pull me in. Like I said in the Chicago WL thread, I couldn't give a shit about the school, but I definitely want to get in as a gauge for other schools.

Good luck on everything else :) I'm really feeling the camaraderie in this thread. Well done, Philly! Haha

That's what I said about CLS but I am still holding on for some strange reason. Come on HYS so I can withdraw from these lousy WLs.

Thanks :mrgreen:

It's funny this became the only score thread and it turned out to be great! Started with rough but it's been a great place to hang out. I hope future applicants keep it up.

(I will make sure that happens next cycle :lol: )
