You were considered a"Deny" by LSP but actually got in!!!

Postby april3141 » Sat Feb 26, 2011 1:23 am

I thought this topic would give others hope. If you were considered a "deny" by LSP (Law School Predictor) but actually got accepted to one of those schools please post about your success. Do not post if you were a "weak consider" or if you simply thought that you did not have a good chance.

Isn't this the same as I made it into my reach?

Not exactly. A reach would be a school you have a chance at, albeit a slim one. "Deny" implies zero chance. So, to use the OP's words, a reach would be the "weak consider."

Well, if we're going to define it that way, I'll play:

NYU.

The "I made it into my reach" was an ambiguous post where there was a lot of liberty taken with what a "reach" was. This post has no ambiguity.

I was a Deny at Emory and got in.

Not sure how I was a deny though, because with a 3.27 167 I was above their 166 wall of death.

170/3.57--In at Berkeley. Probably owes to my PS and, to a lesser extent, my LOR's. Also, huge upward grade trend (2.x sophomore year, >3.9 last 2 years).

170/3.49, in at Berkeley. Also due to PS and probably LoRs (though I can't say the second with absolute certainty).

Just curious, since I'm your numbers twin, what was so interesting about your PS, and did you have any softs that were exceptional?

I was a deny at Chicago and got in. Yet I got rejected by every peer school and everything below it all the way down to Cornell, which I got into.

Shoot, makes me wish I'd taken more of a chance with my cycle. I was still scarred after the bloodbath that my undergrad applications had been, even though I do genuinely believe I now have much more to offer.

Not really, I just thought I had a very solid overall application.

PM me if you're curious to read the PS. It's a controversial topic and I have a feeling it's why I'm on waitlists at schools all the way from Chicago to U of Washington, while other schools (GULC) loved it. It was kind of wild to get waitlisted at UCLA and U of W, then get in at Boalt.

WOW. This thread is awesome. It would also be really helpful for people posting to include what they think go them in so we have a good idea of who should feel hopeful (ie, someone who worked for 10 years before applying =/= same chances as someone who is still in UG)

3.06/167 Deny at Emory but got in with some scholarship money. I think a hard major and NCAA athletics helped.
