If your GPA is accurate in your profile you should be fine with that 3.9. It's the 3.77ish to 3.87ish area that seems to not gotten any love in the last 3 to 4 months.

FWIW, still Held, complete early December, 176/3.45, Held 2/22, and still radiosilence.

There's hope yet for the splitters.

Somehow survived another wave of dings....low uGPA but stayin' alive.

Is anyone still waiting to hear anything post-JS1 from 3/5 or thereabouts? I have gotten nothing since.

I'm in Chicago doing NUs ASW/checking out UChi. Bad that I'llbe thinking about HLS all day tomorrow and Friday? Slash anyone else in a couple days early and wanna explore Hyde Park?

I imagine the wave of reverse splitter dings and the fact that we're still not dinged despite low GPA indicates they are holding to see if they can let in desirable applicants with low GPAs without affecting their stats...presumably very few spaces available to make that work.

Least you've had JS1.

Invited for JS1 on 3/1, had my JS1 on 3/12. It seems like *most* of the folks who got JS2s on the 3/29 wave had JS1s before us, but there were some that had them as late as 3/28. This week will certainly be interesting.

It's not all about the numbers at this level, guys... let's not try to simplify something that is clearly more than that.



Sorry to all the dings today. You will be missed. :(

Finally dinged. Had a feeling I wasn't going to end up at H anyway with my "lowly" 3.7. No Elle Woodsing for this girl, but I've got a lot of other options I'm genuinely excited about anyway.



I would like to thank H for sending me an email inviting me to apply back in November though- it inspired me to blanket the T14 and see what would happen, and I am SO SO thankful, because I hate my job now and couldn't have timed this all any better. Great exit strategy goin' on here :lol: Things work out the way they should.

Nope! Deciding on NU or UCLA with a lot of money, or Berkeley at what is presumably sticker right now.

No big deal. Cursed with my 3.7 and that was my cross to bear :lol: I promise I will be very happy wherever I end up though...well, as happy as a 1L can be. My Stanford rejection crushed me a lot more than the Harvard one.

I actually think your file is the one that may have truly been lost under a filing cabinet somewhere. Just ridiculous.

They're not giving you your acceptance yet so you can OP this thread and not go skipping off to some other thread. Someone's gotta keep this ship afloat, Lavitz.

Editted for derp removal. Sorry for not being clearer the first time :D

Yeah, I reread that after I posted and realized it sounds the opposite of what I meant. I'm special.

So sorry to hear about all the dings! You all have a bunch of other amazing law schools lined up though, and I do hope to see some of you at NYU next fall :D

I somehow survived this round of dings (held 2/22). I feel like H is toying with me.
