There's people ITT who have near-lock numbers who haven't received invites yet, so I'd chill out for now. At least that's what I keep telling myself...


Yeah we should chill. I will be worried, however, if another wave of interview invites comes out and I don't get one of those.


Same here... I really hope I will be in the next one.

So I'm checking in here. Just got my LSAT score, so I'll probably apply within the next week or two. Can anybody offer advice on how much my 3.85 GPA (.04 below the median) is going to hurt? My 174 is pretty safely median, but I don't look forward to waitlist purgatory for months. Is that the most likely scenario for me?

High LSAT scores are an increasingly rare commodity these days. At least that's what I tell myself.

I've got a 175 and 3.73, so I'll get back to you on the GPA question if I get an interview within the next few weeks.

Harvard is a huge reach for me, but damnit, I'm in. Gonna make them say no.

I'll let everyone know as well. Super-splitter, applied in early October. If I get an interview with my GPA, most of you should be in the clear. :lol:

Cornell and UCLA so far. I don't have any major preference at this point, though I don't like NYC very much and do like Chicago. It'll mostly come down to scholarship money, I expect. I'm basically up for the highest bidder.

Harvard's 25th percentile GPA dropped to 3.77 and the 75th to 3.95, so I would think the median is now around 3.86, though I cannot find this info. Also, with the drop in 25th percentile LSAT to 170 and 75th to 175, I'd say you are safely above median for the LSAT! So basically I think you have a good chance of getting an interview :D

Harvard's median last year was 3.85, FWIW.

Do you think a 4.0/170 can somehow swing maybe even a waitlist?

Haha you all realize the hypocrisy (which I am now taking part in) of bumping the thread to say how nervous you get when the thread is bumped? No more bumping until we get another JS1!

Any ideas on which other T14s we can expect to hear from in November? Michigan next week and UVA around Thanksgiving, but anything else?
