I was as well - well actually UR 1/5, 1/21, 1/24.

Anyone care to share their numbers? I'm curious to know if its a random thing or if there is method to the madness. To be honest I think Im right on the edge - not sure what to expect. 161/3.6. I do have some unique work experience...

Same review dates here as well. 3.76, 161, non-URM, ok softs. Another person on here with a 3.8 and 162 has had the same thing happen to them, something tells me we will all hear good news sometime soon.

There is no denying that we are all very similar numbers wise - maybe so many review dates because we ARE on the edge? I randomly met someone last week that said he was just admitted with a 173 or something...probably an easy "accept."

I'm below on everything, 3.0 GPA, 158. But I graduated with four majors and have had substantial work experience, so who knows? Maybe we are all specials.

Yeah, and one of those majors was Classics. I feel that a Classics degree should be an automatic acceptance to any school in the nation. For God's sake I spent four years of my life pouring over Ancient Greek and Latin, I deserve something.

Wow, you would think after wasting all of that time and money for a worthless degree you would learn. But I guess not. Don't worry, if you can't find a job like a ton of other struggling lawyers you can always burn some more cash on a LLM.....

I actually put myself through college and graduated debt-free and am now working in a pretty swank job at the moment, but it's not what I want for the rest of my life. I assume that you picture all future JD students as naive and ignorant?

Not all, but many. You going for the full or part time program for law school? Kind of sucks, but they cherry pick full time students with stats that are on the fence and offer them part time spots. I would imagine that most people who applied early for the part time program won't hear anything for awhile. Any one part time get a response? Has anyone gotten denied yet? If you read Above the Law they had an article on how apps are down I think it was around 15% compared YOY at this time last year so it has to help our odds.
