Oh god. I was initially happy to avoid the reserve, but now I'm terrified.

I have the same LSAT as you and lower GPA and I got the 'reserve group' email. There's no saying what will happen.

Nothing yet for me either. Something about getting held at Harvard and out right dinged at Columbia feels wrong. I'm just going to assume they're thinking up a new name for the Hamilton + Butler, full tuition + stipend, scholarship they're giving me. Thanks Columbia.

If I, with my numbers, was put on reserve, I would expect you'll be getting in soon, or at least put on reserve as well...

Heh, sounds like what I'm worrying about.

Based on my experiences last year though, CLS seems to be a huge fan of holding people both officially and unofficially. Rolling decisions, completion dates, etc. seemed to matter very little. It's possible they are just unofficially holding us above median LSATs for a while longer - it's still quite possible (perhaps likely) for us to end up getting reserved later.

I'm just going to hope that they're (uncharacteristically) showing some reverse-splitter love, and my acceptance will arrive shortly.

Also put on Reserve.

3.91/167, November complete.

I'm certainly not in their normal range of acceptances.

Reserve - 169/3.9
Applied late November
Knew I had no chance, the fee waiver just looked so good. Good luck to those still waiting!

My condolences to all the reserve emails. Looks like most of you are fall applicants. Any January applicants put on reserve today?

This is interesting - it doesn't look like any 172+ got reserved today, unless somebody wants to report otherwise.

The reserves came out in waves last year and there was no rhyme or reason to them. If you haven't gotten one you are not out of the woods.

reserve, likely b/c they asked for grades a few weeks ago and I gotta wait a few more days for an incomplete to get taken off before I send them.

Yeah, I remember last year all too well - loooots of reserves in March/April. I just think it's interesting if no 172+ got reserved today because it does seem to suggest some concern about the LSAT median.

did they reserve anyone with 172 + this early last year though? I feel like HLS is the only school so far who have dinged people with median numbers

Oh goodie.


+1.

But honestly, i'd rather get straight out dinged than reserved. I have no interest in my app process dragging out into the summer.
