I hope if I'm rejected today that it at least happens at 3:42 so I can smile a little.

I haven't been following this thread very closely... 3:42?


Someone predicted that a wave of emails would come at 3:42 a couple of days ago and then a bunch came at like 3:41.

I have 11/3, 12/6, 12/15 but no 12/16 update. No idea what any of it means, but don't panic just yet. I have a 3.5/170, are your stats better/comparable?


170/3.3, decent to good softs. Honestly, I know I shouldn't expect any more than a WL with those #s but for some reason I've been becoming increasingly optimistic these past few weeks. Looks like it might backfire soon T_T. Anyway I don't mean to be a downer or anything, grats to everyone who got accepted so far and GL to the rest of us!!

Same numbers. Stuck at 11/8. I've pretty much given up hope.

It's funny because when I visited Ithaca, I randomly ran into the professor I TA'd for in undergrad (on the other side of the country). It was a crazy coincidence. Apparently he's on sabbatical and doing some research at Johnson and offered me a research position if I got into Cornell law. :/

Also, I just signed up for the GMAT as well. :D

Gross.

Won't be nearly as fun as LSAT prep.

Are you considering dual-degrees?


I want to practice law, but am loosely considering dual degrees if they make sense based on my options. If I am not happy with my LS options, then I may consider trying to use B-school as a back door to L-school.

I realize that for most cases that would be harder to do, but for applicants with backgrounds similar to mine in terms of education and work experience (military academy / combat leadership), it's typically the opposite. I know very very many peers going to Wharton and HBS with low 3.x GPAs and low 600 GMATs. And, personally, I find the GMAT more suited to my strengths based on my education. I enjoyed the LSAT material more because it was very new to me. Though completely unfamiliar with formal logic, I had 4 semesters of math/calc/statistics as part of my schools core-curriculum

ah.. i see. kudos to having such a developed 'back-up' plan. with your background i would be surprised if you had LS options that didn't satisfy your expectations.. but who ever really knows.

best of luck to you!! thank you for your service

FWIW applied on 10/29 and trad splitter LSAT>75th, GPA<25th



I wouldn't worry too much. You're not alone (i'm 11/3 - 12/6 - 12/15 - 12/16). I'm clueless as to what it means :?

BUT CONGRATS TO EVERYONE!!! it's good to see you finally get the acceptance Luxxe!


Just went 12/16 as well. They're def. updating in waves.

isn't there something that will automatically check your status for you? I'm tired for constantly doing it myself

Yeah, but my status changed to "Congratulations! You are admitted!" I'm not sure if the date updated before that.

Still stalking this thread waiting for all of you to get your acceptances!!

Very strange. Sorry guys (not that a lack of update is necessarily a bad thing, but I know you all want to see some movement).
