Yep.......... borderline, considering that, given the choice, GULC favors high LSAT over high GPA's..... You won't find to many admitted people with LSAT's below the 170 mark......maybe a few 169's. From what I hear, Cronell's a more favorable place for reverse-splitters like you.

Bold statement considering a <3.7/<168 non Urm has been accepted this cycle.

I went complete with an interview request on the 16th as well and I already had my interview. I think others have as well. The email did say it could take up to a few weeks to hear from someone though IIRC. Still, at this point you may want to consider following up with them.


It seems like many of us who are updated as of 11/16 and have interviews are super-splitters.... 174+ LSAT's and GPA's below 3.3. Just had my alum interview today and it was surprisingly smooth............ no wrinkles. Either that means that we, as a group, are almost shoe-in's or destined for the WL pile........ still, it's better than a straight WL/reject.

I'm in with a 167/3.7 non-URM, with non-traditional softs. This is for part time though, and I'm not sure how different the standards are now that they reduced the class size by 50 or so

Did you apply just to PT or both and was changed to PT?

Hey, People..........

I've been noticing that for this and other threads, there a quite a few who are on their 2nd or 3rd admissions cycle........many of them re-applying, even after they got accepted previously.

I'm wondering why someone would supject himself/herself to this pain (or maybe they're not serious? and want to see the rest of us squirm>) Just seems like these repeaters may be screwing up the numbers for the rest of us. No wonder schools like GULC put out 2500 acceptances just to get an entering class of 500......... Anyone with thoughts?

Bummer :( I might have to rethink my entire app strategy - I thought being above both medians would have given me a way better chance than this. Thanks for the advice!

So is there a consensus on which circumstances email will be used to notify of decision vs. ONLY snail mail?

In via snail mail.

My final complete date was 11/21 and the letter was postmarked 11/21 too. It was sent to my international address and my mom called and woke me up at 5:00 this morning to let me know that it had arrived, lol.

From what I've heard about your soft I think you have a great chance. Good luck! Is it a group or individual interview?

Individual from what I can gather, though the email had nothing explicitly saying that. Though, I don't live anywhere near DC, so I don't really understand how I could even do a group interview w/ the admissions dean or whatever the deal is. I guess we'll see. Did you do the interview ?

Hi all,

Just curious, does LSN differentiate PT or FT when it shows acceptances? I've only noticed one PT acceptance on this forum and I'd like to gauge the numbers that are getting in. Also, congrats to those who have gotten in to either!

With a group interview, they'll e-mail you a time and date and ask if you can make it. If they didn't specify that it's a group interview, it probably isn't.

Yes, but it is of course incumbent on the user to designate their acceptance as such.

I got my acceptance letter in the mail almost 2 weeks ago, but just got an email from the Dean saying the ASW will be open in December, and a few other random things. I'm assuming everyone else who is accepted will get a similar email soon. Who knows, maybe people who haven't gotten the acceptance in the mail yet will get an email.

Got home to an acceptance letter this morning (last went complete on 11/21) with a really nice note. Could definitely see myself winding up in DC long term, so I'm really excited!
