Because GW is trying to hold onto their 167 LSAT median.

Then I have no idea, lol. I know a LOT of people who had sub 165 LSAT scores so I have no idea why they'd admit people with this pattern.

GW is acting a little fishy.... Coincidentally, I have been reading a lot of GW-hate on TLS lately. Hmmmm.....

Does anyone from last cycle know if they will send out the waitlist decision via snail-mail too? I can't get emails from GW.
For those that were waitlisted, would you mind letting us know in a few days if they follow up with snail-mail?

Yeah, GW was my safety school. I applied the first day and haven’t heard anything back. Stats/schools/acceptances in profile. Kinda weird, I feel like I should have been admitted already but it’s whatevs now.

Are people wondering if GW would actually search TLS / LSN while making decisions... idk I've always thought that was a little overboard (too busy for all that)

Anyways, I've stated how interested I am in GW a couple of tiems on here... so hopefully they actually do lol

Idk, only one 167/ 3.7 got waitlisted

The others had pretty low gpas compared you... who knows that one person could have put together a horrible app.

LSN is an incredibly useful resource for schools if they wanna see to what other schools people with similar stats are applying. I would be surprised if they didn't look. But even if they didn't, I just can't see how GW would assume that, in the lowest applicant pool in a decade, they think they're getting these 168/3.6s to come on board. My first thought is that maybe GW's pool didn't decrease at all, and that if even so, they could have a lot of scholarship $ to give out, or they want to lower their class size.

GW has a new dean who is on a mission to increase the school's clout and to reduce any perception that GW is a regional school. Perhaps that has influenced admission standards, and they're willing to take a class that is smaller but has higher medians?

Edit: And perhaps they are planning to give out bigger scholarships to try to win over applicants who might otherwise go to GULC.

I agree they look at it for your purposes, I interpreted that people thought they might be in danger because they posted their stats and such on TLS / LSN along with other schools they want to attend. I just don't imagine an addcom looking at apps and searching TLS history to see if this person is on there/ really wants to go to gw lol

I jsut think ppl are overdoing it

So far there has been ONE 3.7 / 167 that got WL... yes we all expected that to get in, but always a couple that underperform their numbers

http://lawschoolnumbers.com/zreinhar

There, number twin from last year that got WL (eventually got in) / couple others I saw as well

Calm down, it was 1 person lol
