First "official" acceptance of the cycle since L&C can't confirm my acceptance though I'm in on the ASW. So happy for it!
Congratulations! Are you OOS?
I have a 157/3.5, non URM. I live in Baltimore City and work for a big firm downtown. I got waitlisted which is a bit of a shocker (UMD is my top choice). Curious as to whether in-state vs. out of state is playing into decision making factors, or if for some reason there may be something else up with my application...
I am OOS. Did you apply PT? If I recall correctly you were looking to keep working at your firm during law school. I remember you telling me about your work experience in the American thread (waiting to hear from them myself) and it sounds like you've got good stuff there. My numbers are a stretch for Maryland with my GPA above the 75th for both programs and meh LSAT, so strictly on the numbers, maybe they wanted to balance out a low GPA somewhere. You're an applicant right there in the city and doing work there, so I think there's got to be good news for you soon.
I also applied part-time and I was waitlisted. I'm in-state and I work in Baltimore. I have a 158 and 3.4, so maybe they are looking for some applicants with higher GPAS. We'll see what happens...Congrats!
My GPA, strong PI work experience, PS topic, various internships, second language, and community involvement are what I'm hoping get me through this cycle. LSAT certainly isn't gonna be the winning point. Good luck!
