Also checking in. Stats are in my profile:

Accepted: UVA, Georgetown, GWU, and a couple T30-T20 safeties.
Held: Cornell
Pending: Chicago ED (I imagine I'll get my WL/rejection today or tomorrow), and the rest of the T14 minus HY.

I have a fairly unique major and decent work/volunteer experience during undergrad which may be helping somewhat.

Hopefully good news will come from Vandy and UCI soon.

Didn't ED anywhere and I applied late-ish, hoping this doesn't ruin my cycle.

Just saw this post now.

I optimistically call myself a splitter (3.35/167) and I'm hoping that my softs help pull me through some top choices (LSN page in profile) and in my opinion my PS is awesome...I've been complete/UR everywhere since late November, early December and the waiting is killing me! I just want one school already...

I also keep having mild heart attacks everytime I get an email/phone call from an unknown number, and this site has killed my confidence and is making me apply to extra schools...haha

Good luck everyone!

Well this splitter is having a good new year- in at Vandy and UVA. If I don't count the waitlist at Chicago, that means I'm in at 2 of my top 3. Hopefully I'll stay on a roll this next week.

And congrats on NU. I think the splitters on here are doing well so far.

Other top choices I'm waiting on are Georgetown, Northwestern, Michigan, Texas, UVa, BC, BU, and George Washington.

Other places I've applied: Indiana, Fordham, American, W&M, Houston, UC-Davis, Arizona St, Emory, and GMU

I was surprised by the WUSTL e-mail; I applied on Christmas Eve and got the e-mail on January 5th which suggests that they auto-admitted me. I had been working under the assumption that my numbers were such that WUSTL was a reach for me...so I sent in a few more applications to T14 schools.

Hey numbers twinish. Do you have a LSN account?

I got waitlisted from UVa ED by the way.

Thought I'd say hello with my 3.4x / 176. Nice to see some fellow splitters.

4 years WE. Submitted apps beginning of Jan (oops). Took the LSAT in 2009 (is that looked down upon?).

Applied to most of the t14, plus BC and BU because I like Boston and Harvard isn't going to happen.

Best of luck to everyone,

Checking in with a 3.19/168. I applied pretty much everywhere in the T20, plus every place that gave me a fee waiver. ~3 years work experience in a top psychology research program, published in an APA journal...hopefully this will help my chances for T14.

In: WUSTL, UNLV (full ride)
WL/Out: None yet

After browsing LSN for a ridiculously long time today, it looks like there are far fewer candidates with stellar GPA/LSATs this year, especially T10. I'm considering throwing a late app to Yale...at least my app would give the adcomms something to laugh at :D

Reverse splitter: 155/3.92

Do I have any chance at NYU, Fordham, Cordaza, Columbia, Penn, Boston College, BU?

Targets: St. John, Syracuse with money, Buffalo, Hofstra with money, UMiami, Brooklyn, University of Florida, Rutgers

Safety: New York Law, maybe Quinnipiac to see how much money

Thanks.
