This will be my new home page until you post the school.

Congrats!

I didn't regret applying to more schools until I read this post. Congratulations OP. Don't tell anyone what school it was until everything is set.

I think that everyone knows the school in question. And no, it's not a mistake, it's an annual occurrence. Law schools have a lot of room in the bottom 25%. Recently it was revealed that Illinois had admitted several students with even lower LSATs. (Illinois is just an example & not the law school that OP was accepted to, however.)

I can't believe no one's calling flame on this one.

My apologies. And here I was, thinking I was some kind of brilliant TLS detective.

Bros, I scooped all of you and mentioned trolling in my first post.

I was recently wait listed for a school with LSAT/GPA medians MUCH higher than mine. So I am inclined to believe this may be for real.

It's definitely for real. Even a former law dean, now a Virginia professor, has a videotaped lecture on the freedom that law schools have with the below 25% acceptees. I know several who were accepted or put on reserve with numbers only slightly above OP's at a T-14 law school over the past few years. Some had URM status & some did not, but all offered diversity & a story.

I'm not saying it's strictly impossible. I just believe the OP is full of shit.

I've actually seen what the OP is claiming THIS CYCLE. Non-URM Friend of mine JUST got into a T10 with absolute shitlaw numbers (we're talking WL @ Phoenix Law numbers, folks). There's a stupid legal show on USA with an impossible premise about some hotshot with an eidetic memory. In the show there's a brilliant woman who just sucks at the LSAT. That's him.

He is quite possibly the smartest young man I've ever met, fantastic writer, wonderful legal mind, and one very compelling diversity story. He's that guy in class you'd assume to have 170+ just because everything you've seen from him is brilliant, and because he's a nice, unpretentious guy, you don't secretly hope he gets knocked down a peg or two. He conference called a few of us last week and broke the news, and it was great. I can only guess he had some killer LORs.

That said, his numbers do suck. And whatever issues caused him to bomb the LSAT are probably still there. Getting into T10 is one thing. Staying there is another. I can only hope the best for him.

Hey,
Thanks for sharing your story. You give those of us with crap LSAT scores hope that miracles, however unlikely they may be, are possible in the admissions process. Wish you the best.
