Sorry, guys. I don't think that they rank the WL, but for those of you really wanting to get in I'm going to withdraw from that pool. It isn't like someone who already has admission withdrawing, but it does remove some of the competition.

I hope everyone that wants Colorado gets in and good luck this year!

Thanks, Gail. Good luck to you too, wherever you end up!

FYI I noticed a rejection on the LSN website. 159 and 2.5 econ major. Says the decision was made 1/6


-Yours truly. Decision was 1/9... Got the letter today in CA.

So for those who are WL. Are you going to send a LOCI or an additional LoR? I have another LoR I can send and I'm wondering if I should send it immediately. Thoughts?

Sorry about the ding, Quandary. Good luck in the rest of your cycle!

For its ranking, CU is actually pretty hard to get into. Don't feel too bad.

Sorry to hear. I'm guessing mine is in the mail.

I should be in with my numbers and URM status (3.6/165), but CU decided not to wait one more day for my December LSAT score.

I doubt they'd ding you with a score pending. In all likelihood, you're in and they don't need the other score! Good luck.

I was one of the several with the letter dated 1/9 update, and no dates on the deposit deadlines. My status also changed before LSAC had actually sent an updated report (as they sent the report the next day). I tried to get in touch with the admissions office to no avail.

Hmm, I guess that doesn't sound good. Well, keep trying to get a hold of someone, your numbers and URM status sound like an auto-admit. Hang in there.

It was about my upbringing and how that has shaped my view of the law. Immigrant parents with no education past sixth grade and can't speak English, low paying jobs, growing up in a community with gang problems and a high dropout rate from HS, etc. (I could go on, but it's pretty typical of low income Mexican American communities throughout the country.) I mentioned how my community suffers from police injustice, but usually have no legal recourse. How I wished to change that, and worked hard to overcome such low expectations to attend college at a top school (U of Texas) for undergrad and get a grad degree eventually.

The 165 was my new score. My old score was a 153. CU appears to be the only school that didn't wait until the seventh of January when LSAC updated my report to other schools.

You need to call them. Now.

eta: My app was incomplete because of a mix up and it was fixed in less than five minutes after I got off the phone.


Update:

I called them and finally got in touch with someone.

Yeah, it appears that their acceptance (or should I say rejection) came before my new score came in.

I was informed it will be reconsidered and reviewed again.

Glad you got in contact with them and they're reconsidering. And congrats on such an impressive score jump! :wink:

Thanks. Yeah, I just received the rejection letter from CU in the mail. Now, I'll wait for the second one, which hopefully will be an acceptance.

I'm almost positive you'll get in with that 165 and being a urm ma. I mean I got in with a lot lower GPA (3.0) urm ma. But I also went to CU for undergrad and wrote a PS specifically tailored to them... may have helped a little bit.

Good Luck everyone!
