Never have the last two words of a post contributed so much to its meaning. :shock: Haha. Good luck; we have very similar stats and very different school lists. Hopefully they'll all go for it.

I think you have a pretty good shot of getting off waitlists! I know you're not on the Chicago waitlist yet but Chicago tends to waitlist splitters unless they are URMs. Last year, a couple of 3.2/177s got off the Chicago waitlist in May.

Depending on your background, I think you probably also have a good shot at Penn. And depending on how much work experience you have, interest you show, and follow-ups you send, Michigan and NU will probably bite. I don't know enough about the Columbia WL to say anything on that one. But that is one sexy LSAT score.

Update: Michigan offered me 45K. Looks like I'll be a wolverine next year. Apparently there is some splitter lover over in Dean Z's office, and I'm happy to have been the recipient.
Good luck to everyone else!

Wowowow this is amazing news. Congratulations man!! You give me hope as my split is very similar to yours and I love Michigan. Not riding the Chicago waitlist anymore?
