I am new to TLS, so please forgive me if this question is redundant. I understand that "splitters" are those applicants are those with low GPAs and high LSAT scores. My question is this: are those applicants with a GPA that lies between the 25th percentile and the median - for Harvard, between 3.74 and 3.88 - and with a high LSAT score also considered splitters? For highly competitive schools like Harvard, is it possible that these applicants are auto-admits if the LSAT score is very high, or are their applications generally held and considered for a longer period of time? Thank you to all of you for all of the help your posting has provided me over the past months and, sadly, years!

You're kidding. The Paper chase is the movie version of Scott Turow's '1L'

I have an excellent chance of NOT getting the JR1. And when they do come, if I haven't gotten the email, it's just going to make me feel bad to read about all of you superstars who got them. I have to admit, it is a relief to come here and see that the 2 new pages are all about legal education and the Paper Chase! :oops:

Would a JR/KB1 be likely with a 174/Above Average?

Hard to say, I have a 174/4.0 and I feel like the odds are better than average. I guess that would be a 174/Superior though. Not enough data on LSN for internationals to really tell. I would assume softs would really matter.

Mine's been complete since 10/24, but they just sent the complete email today. When I saw I got an email from admissions I got excited, then was like 'oh.'

But really, how are they taking so long to start doing JRs? Maybe they are not going to start admitting people before thanksgiving...?
