I would totally do that. Provide the context and elaborate on it (those interviews always seem so softball and sound byte-y). You're probably not a celebrity, but random dilettantes do not often get asked to do such things.


No, not a celebrity. Just your average guy put in extraordinary and unique situations!

I'll probably common sense check my submission with someone on TLS or just on this forum. In the mean time, I am off to Vail/Breckenridge for a week of snowboarding, and hopefully minimal TLS'ing. Makes going to CU-Boulder really, really hard not to do when such good times are so near...

Same here. RD. If I'm reading the previous comments correctly, people's completes not review were updating several times, right?

But this is the only movement for mine...

What does this mean?????

+2. Same here. Complete 11/30 for RD. First movement is the Under Review on 12/19. Cornell is my reach so not much hope for me after seeing all the deferrals/dings. Good luck everyone!

Hmm, sorry for everyone that's been dinged/deferred.. but I would NOT let getting deferred get you down.

I got deferred at UT and that was the first I heard from any school. Sucked at first, but the more I thought about it the more I came to realize that they could have rejected me if they wanted to, but they didn't. Rather, and to be optimistic, they want to give an acceptance but need to cover their own asses first and secure a relatively well-numbered class.

On LSN it looks like there is an lsat wall forming at 169.

Not sure if I'm going to retake from here. Tough day for sure.

You said you were going Cornell or bust, if I remember correctly? What are you thinking? Were you dinged or deferred/waitlisted? What's your situation? Is a year off possible? I will be three years between undergrad and the time I enroll in school. It's been one of the best things I ever did for myself.

I'm sure you've already heard this, but if you can stomach it you really should retake.

nine-and-fifty, are you a convicted felon? Your rejection makes no sense.
