Be a little mature, I mean was it suggestive in whether or not you'd get an offer of admission, or suggestive like you ARE admitted but you might also get a scholarship, etc. What was the suggestive part about?


I edited to delete my response, which I decided was in poor taste.

Oh gotcha, I thought you meant mine was in poor taste. No worries, sorry about that.

The suggestive email has been discussed many times before. Take a look back in this thread.

Is this going to be a 2-week update cycle? My email dates so far are:

4/14 - No offers till after 5/2. Interested? From Sophia
4/28 - Small Group. Interested? From Cornblatt
5/10 - Just Kidding! More info 5/24. Hang in there? From Cornblatt
5/24 - ?

For all the other conspiracy theorists, I'm 170+, plain ol' vanilla WL.

New to forum.

Hello to all.

I wanted to share my experience...My application was very late due to having to take the feb LSAT (since I bombed the Dec test).
I applied ED and they agreed to hold off until they received my Feb scores.

I am a URM and these are my numbers...
LSAT 166
GPA 3.65 (Little Ivy) double major

I was put on the preferred wait list on April 4th.
responded with LOCI.

update email from Sophia on April 15, responded with LOCI.

Received the "small group" email from Dean on may 10th and responded with yet another LOCI.
Not sure how much longer I can hold out. I have a seat deposit to a top Boston School (not Harvard) and received $100k scholarship...would still go to GULC if accepted.

A little belated, but how long did they give you to make a decision?

And congrats!

depending on what minority group you are a part of you should wait til next cycle.. Im not a URM so I'm no pro at this.. but I'm assuming you can crack the T14 with your numbers

The problem is I applied late to quite a few and had no luck due to the "so late in the cycle"
situation and they aren't too crazy about reapplications after rejections...or so I was advised.

That and I really don't want to wait a year...

not sure who told you that but it is completely untrue.. very few schools would care about you reapplying

as far as the waiting thing.. you may not want to but it is probably the smart thing to do financially and probably in a few other ways

thats just my advice; im not trying to argue with ya.. take it for what its worth

From UPenn...

Q. I applied to Penn Law last year and was denied admission. I would like to reapply this year. What materials do I need to submit with my new application?
Applicants who are denied admission may reapply to Penn Law in a subsequent year. It should be noted, however, that candidates are unlikely to be admitted unless there is some significant change since their previous application. Previous applicants who wish to reapply must:

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I don't think you are likely to receive much of a boost at all. The Hispanic URMs that received the most significant boost are Mexican Americans and Puerto Rican Americans. It's debated whether Cuban counts as a URM or not. South American will probably not. Your rejections may not be entirely related to your late applications and could have to do with your numbers, which are below median at every T-14.

Valid point...FWIW the numbers were good enough to get on the SPWL at GULC...

I still have not given up hope.

cuz a year of work experience and and earlier app arent significant right?

anyway.. now that the poster has mentioned the minority group I agree with everyone else that it won't make much of a difference.. which is why i wrote depending on what URM they are
