Update. ~3.2 and 169/175:

Rejected: Chicago, UC-Berkley, Michigan
Waitlist: Penn
Accepted: GW, Georgetown, UVA
Pending: Cornell (deferred EA), NYU, Columbia, Stanford, Duke, NU, WUSTL, UCLA, USC

Not getting at least a WL from Michigan is the only real disappointment so far. Things do seem to be going a bit slower this cycle though.

Retake!


I've already applied 14 schools this semester. I don't think my wallet could take another hit. I guess I should add I don't have the best softs, and went to median NY state school. I've taken the LSAT twice, first was a cancel.


But good luck to all of you!

since when are 3.7s splitters?


It's really a 3.6X and with the LSAT it's technically a splitter (under 25th GPA with over 75th LSAT)

To me splitter is cutoff at the point where you're able to get into Harvard and not be a URM. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.


That's a pretty subjective standard... but I will agree that a 3.7 may be a splitter for HYS and Uchicago, but nowhere else...

Held for further review - Georgetown

Pending - Penn, Cornell, Harvard, Columbia, UCLA, Indiana-Bloomington, and Wash U St. Louis

pretty happy with UVA. Strong chance I'll go there


couple of updates

Need to write essays for Georgetown, UCLA, and Penn...

Reminder: Read the OP.

request: No debating on what makes a splitter. I'd like to avoid the bloodbath that happened in last year's splitter thread.
