I was also factoring in people applying this cycle with high lsat scores from previous testing years, as I think this accounts for a decent number of people (I am one of those people, and have three friends with scores in the 172-176 range from 2-3 years ago that are applying this cycle), but even so, once you take out the splitters, it wouldn't be close to that ~1900 figure.

Go waitlist 8) .



should also take into consideration people this cycle who got 172+ lsat scores but chose to sit out this cycle for whatever reason (ie do not want to be a lawyer)


Yes. In my opinion, if NYU and Harvard (the largest T6 classes by far) choose to matriculate a similar class size this year they will have to see at least a 1-pt reduction in their LSAT medians. Ok, maybe Harvard will be able to squeeze by, but I just don't see it working for NYU. NYU has to send ~1250 acceptances to fill a class of 450. Their deadline is 2/15, so using LSAC data for number of applicants we can assume about 40,000 total applicants around that time (it was 34,000 on 2/1). 1250 is around 3% of the total applicant pool they're working with (now you're down to 169 territory assuming the total pool reflects a similar disribution of LSAT scores). Also consider that NYU is likely to receive anywhere between 5200-6400 applicants this year.

Campos and others have said that the high LSAT scorers are choosing not to apply (I haven't seen the data though- anyone has it?). If that is true, T6 are in even bigger LSAT median trouble. This analysis doesn't take into account the other major factor in admissions, GPA, but Of course, URM status and other special circumstances have been neglected. I still think WL candidates will have a better shot this year than they expect.

Sorry to hear that. When was your complete date? Did you have the back-to-back status checker updates that most have had recently?

At this time in the cycle it could be anything (especially without knowing your numbers), but for most people it took at least an hour or more for them to log in to ASW, so try again in a little while.There was already a ding reported today --not sure if that was mail or email though. Good luck!!

Good question --aiaea, did you get DLS on your status checker or just an email?

Is DLS now a bad thing? Or just not necessarily good?

DLS could literally be anything (Admit, Deny, WL), but, since there's already been a ding reported today, it may not be a good thing right now...but we really have no idea. Keep an eye on your inbox.

It takes a while. Breathe into a paper bag for about an hour and then check again.

Ha, yes a paper bag would be a good idea right now. I totally shouldn't have checked this this morning. I have my C interview this morning too!

Mine was UR1 12/3 .

I was always expecting at best a wait list. Surprised they have not just dropped the axe like they have on others.

Waitlist is all I'm hoping for too. I guess it doesn't really matter WHEN I find out, since I'll be WAITING regardless... Though a swift ding might be better, like pulling off a bandaid.
