Thats not zero chance...or maybe I'm just fooling myself because my numbers are close.

From what I can tell on LSN, for 170-171 LSAT's they like to waitlist people with GPA's between 3.4-3.6, and accept people with GPA's over 3.6. But who knows.

Did everyone submit more than one letter? You think only submitting one would look bad? I'm still waiting for my employer rec but I want to get this out now....

I went Complete around 10/12 or so and went Under Review on 10/28. Is anyone else under review? I really have no chance, just wondered what everyone's timelines were like.

Thanks. I went back a couple pages to around the date I went under review and didn't see any other comments about it. Didn't think to look back even earlier, assuming a big batch would go under review on the same date.

Did anyone get confirmation that their ED contract was received?? I sent mine registered so I know it was signed for over a week ago, but would be nice to know for sure at some point before it's due... Status checker still reads processing since 10/17

This is very helpful. Another random obsessive task to distract me at work.

I'm not sure what your last line means. Surely, 52% were not accepted by 11/2 in 2010...

According to the data I mined from LSN (which i am skeptical of)

of those who applied by 11/2/2011 52% were accepted.

Thank you! Impressive data mining. Surprising that despite the reduced # of applicants, the mean/medians have for the most part risen among this small pool.

While the data from stanford did see a drop in medians and a drop in applications i would actually expect the opposite.

Less Apps are from many people opting to not pursue law---those staying in the field are likely those who see themselves as competitive. IT will balance out as now they have less people to choose from and therefore will still have to lower standards...

if apps are down.

But LSAT scores are given in percentiles, and these stay pretty damn constant over each test. So with a drop in test takers, we see a drop in people scoring, e.g., 170+.

But what about all of the people that apply, and then update LSN at the end of the cycle? That is what I'm doing. Are those statistics from people who had applied by that point, or just had updated their LSNs by that point? I'm assuming, of course, that when I do eventually make an LSN, I can put that I applied in early October...

FINALLY my status checker has updated from "We have received your application" to "Application under review"!
Submitted 10/11. NYU is definitely one of my top choices. Fingers crossed!! :)

You can edit the dates for when you applied, got a response, etc.
