Or are they just waiting to ding us?

I am keeping up hope. Lsat is way down, especially for high scorers. Either their lsat median dips or they take more splitters.

What about retakers? Have we seen any evidence of them forgoing the "average" practice?

Oh, plus I'm a retaker. In light of those things, I can't imagine that the LSAT score averaging *actually* happens.

Ditto on both. My GPA is a hair below the 25th (3.76), and I retook for my highest (168 --> 176).

it's just one part of your application, and they have so much more information about you. i'm sure js knows that there are all kinds of high-potential people, including those who don't tend to knock it out of the park during interviews. anyone can make a mistake or two under pressure, too. chill and treat yourself, you deserve it for getting this far in this super stressful process!

Nope! It was pretty much a straight rejection on what was a long shot anyway. Hey, at least I got into other great schools so I really cannot complain.

And it came via email.
