*finally* went complete this evening. 1/7 to 1/29 was quite a jump and I'm afraid probably puts me out of contention for $$$ given the super-late complete date. Sigh.

Since the first NCEs arrived on a Saturday this year, I think this supports my earlier theory that they mailed another batch on Monday because they (probably) didn't come into work on Saturday. And a few of the 1/27 people received Hamiltons, to boot.

Then one person had a letter postmarked 1/26, and the next batch had letters postdated 1/31 or 2/1. So all hope is not lost.


I hope you are right but don't you feel like this years first batch is a lot bigger than last years?

Stopped at the post office. Nothing today either, tristate area. If I can't even get CLS in a down cycle with a 176/3.76, I should probably sit out and reapply.

Hey, man, I know the feeling. You're not the only one having a crummy cycle. We just need to keep focused on the goal, which is presumably to have a successful career coming out of law school. And that's what you'll do with Chicago or NYU.

Shh. I have nightmares about my LORs saying, "Well, Carbon was present in class every time--in body at least, if not in mind..."

Riiiight, and it just so happens that no one at Duke, NU, or NYU looked at anything in your app before admitting you. (Although I would believe that last one.)

i am almost certain nyu looks at the two numbers and goes BOOM YOU'RE IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! because i feel like they move at too fast a pace to do anything else.

although to be fair, the email a student sent me was targeted to me- cali, my type of law, blah blah

Traditionally I agree. However, there's a counterexample: me. 8)

Her. If you knew me in real life, you would realize that I am a naturally very paranoid/anxious/OCD person. My apologies.

No need to apologize, you're certainly not alone at this site!

Little perspective is always good too though.

For reals though, I feel like I should maybe get anxiety meds or something. Or learn to practice yoga.

I am also a counterexample. I am non-urm, below both medians and was admitted after UR1.

To be fair, people suspect 171 was last year's median and the last released median GPA was 3.71
