Congrats! I am nervous about my numbers as well.... Did you do the why ND essay? D you have ties there?


Thanks and no to both questions...I mainly applied becasue it was my dream school for undergrad and I got denied...but as the cylce has progressed i really like notre dame and my decision just became much much harder


Nice! Where else are you looking?


Ive gotten into Howard, Washington and Lee, and Richmond, and WL at Fordham....and Im still waiting on BC and Emory and WUSTL

I have what I would call decent softs...some organization leadership positions, clubs but nothing out of normal....I thought I had a pretty strong PS though...and I guess you could call about a year and half intern at corporate law firm WE so I think I had a pretty strong APp....i definately think I outperformed my numbers...though I am an AA male URM so that probably helped

I think i have a good app as well, considering low-ish numbers...I wrote a good PS and optional essays N such, 6 years WE and financed myself through undergrad....I'm in a waiting game now.... So many schools have not sent decisions.


What are your numbers...you can pm if you like?

Sure, what school are you leaning toward?


To be honest its a dead tie right now for W&L, Howard, and Notre Dame...Though if I got into BC id prob. lean there...and if I get off Fordham waitlist Ill more than likely go there becasue its gives me the best shot for NYC

Just checked status. Decision Made. Would they have e-mailed an acceptance by now or should I just wait for the ding snail letter?

Gotta admit, frustrated seeing 20 points lower LSATs accepted while I got wait listed. :?

That is what I get for drinking 23 hours a day in college.

Saw someone accepted with a 152 unless I misread. I did misread, it was a little higher than that. But maybe a good Why Illinois will get me off the wait-list so no reason to be bitter yet. :D

Congrats. I certainly see both viewpoints. Ultimately I was hoping they would judge candidates based on criteria that is universally measurable. But this isn't the place for that type of discussion.

They may judge candidates based on criteria that is universally measurable, but it may have been a reason why they ignored the LSAT score. We will never know what happens in those Admission Offices.

We all have our theories. Just annoyed at the process that is obviously flawed!

This debate has been rehashed too much on this board. I'll leave it at that.

I don't think that it is flawed...I think that I am the definition of a wholistic application review process they were able to look past my numbers and see things in my app that they believed would make me a good fit

You're certainly entitled to your opinion as everyone is.

I do, however, know for certain that everyone has different upbringings and opportunities in their life before law school, but everyone does take the same test so it would make a lot more sense to focus serious weight on the one constant between applications.

I definitely understand and respect your position as well...but to your point studies do show that certain groups of people perform worse on the last than others...no one can actually say why that is..but the numbers are what they are...I'm a believer that the application process should be more than a numbers game...maybe I feel that way because I'm the be with the lower number I don't know how I would feel if I was a high numbers candiadate so I definitely understand where you are coming from as well
