Applied late Dec - early Jan

Postby alexandra » Wed Jan 19, 2011 12:28 am

Who else applied in late December or early January?

Heard from anywhere?

I'm complete most places, under review at a few, and still incomplete/processing at Cornell, Boston College and Boston University!

(stats 3.8/166, non-urm)

I'm still processing at Cornell and I've had my ap in since Nov. 26. It could be awhile on that one. I had one super last minute ap to Duke and it's complete, but that's priority track. I'm considering sending in a super late one to Michigan. I'm still really on the fence about it.

BU took a couple of weeks to complete, but they sent an email when it was finished.

sent out 3 on 12/26 and 12 on 1/5.

complete everywhere.

Heard back from 2- AUWCL & W&L (in & dinged, respectively)

This waiting shit is KILLING me. I check the site compulsively, and I don't think my email or mailbox have EVER gotten so much attention!

3.9--> 3.4, 160 URM

This is slightly off topic, but how do UGPAs differ so much from LSDAS GPAs, especially when lowering the GPA?

um... i've thought about this a lot, and i've come to the conclusion that it has something to do with cursed native american burial ground and black magic... cuz if it's not that, then I dunno wtf it is.

:lol: Makes sense to me! I get why they move a little bit (especially upward, even if downward is somewhat of a mystery). I mean, does it mean that your school has serious grade inflation?

LSDAS GPAs are all equalized. Some schools have B+/B- count for different numbers. So if your school says B+ are 3.8 and mine says B+ are 3.6, they are equalized to the LSAC B+

No, no. I understand that. I mean, the LSDAS helps me because my school counts As/A+s exactly the same. I'm just wondering what your school would have had to have done in its grading scale in order to make you fall so far, you know?

I dunno, doesn't it also have to do with credit hours? The college Im in now has all 4 credit classes, as opposed to 3, so i'm told that grades from there are "heavier" and impact my gpa more. again, Im convinced it's voodoo or some shit, cuz I cant figure it out, but i would like to considering that my UGPA is a sexy 3.94 and my LSDAS is a frumpy 3.40.

The weighting of the credits is precisely why I don't try to figure out my own GPA. I have classes on my transcript which are 1 credit, 2 credit, 3 credit, 4 credit (and I don't think I have any 5 credit classes). Invariably, I forget to weight something properly when trying to figure out my cumulative.


Edit: Is there somewhere other than an online calculator that says our official LSDAS GPA? I'm not sure if I calculated mine properly, and I wouldn't want to go getting all happy about the increase if it's not accurate.

Blanketed most of T-14 right around Christmas, 3.80/171. In at Berkeley and Duke last week (Priority Track at Duke). Georgetown and UVA went complete yesterday. NYU is the only one still processing (since 12/29), which is killing me.

Blanketed most of the lower T-14 on 1/12... complete most places already, no responses yet. I guess I am a bit later than everyone on this post though.

I used the GPA calc. at lawschoolpredictor.com and it was dead on. give that a try.

That's what I used. We're sure that it's accurate?

you can find your LSDAS GPA on the LSAC website. don't remember where though, just look around a bit (i believe it's labeled as "cumulative gpa")

I mean, it was 100% dead on for me, but the site says they wont guarantee its accuracy...
