Once Stanford tells you you're on the waitlist. (LinkRemoved)

Of course, not getting word within the next week is probably a good (meaning, ding less-likely) sign.

Thanks for this link! So its perfectly possible we could wait until April and still get dinged; I see 3/3/1 for WL/ding/acceptance in my complete frame, nevermind that this is a questionably small sample size

One year earlier is a bunch of WLs, but two years earlier is a bloodbath of dings. Seem like last year was a good middle ground between the two

Hmm... with that GPA I'd be thinking that it is a question of softs once you have hit the 174 mark. I doubt more LSAT points are going to make your app that much more appealing to them. To be honest, a 178 doesn't say THAT much more than a 174 IMO



There seems to be two camps, one of which is "retake til you hit 180" and the other is that after you pass a school's medians it doesn't matter that much. My GPA will limit me regardless I think, and another year off wouldn't get me anywhere exciting WE-wise.


Retaking would be a large expense of time and money for very little chance of gain; if you took in October with me you probably missed only a handful of questions already. I think it would make almost 0 effect on stanford. The only quantifiable impact of a higher score than 174 might be a baller scholarship like butler/hamilton ect. since those *seem* to only go to 175+. I thought you were happy with Cal tho!


My intuition on this is that once you get above the 75 marker or close to it, it stops mattering fast. Because schools use the median method rather than the averaging method, your individual score has much less power.

Every day I look at my GPA and thank my lucky stars they use the median . . . .

So I couldn't tell you exactly when, but recently my address was modified to take away the abbreviations.
N. was changed to North and Ave. was changed to Avenue.

I noticed that my address has changed too. Not to be a downer, but I wouldn't read too much into it unless we had a reason to. I went complete in mid-December.

Honestly, I am completely unfazed at this point. If it happens, it happens. This thread alone has zapped all my anxiety.
