What is a non-traditional student? I always thought that just meant someone was much older than average?

A non-traditional student is someone who declares themselves non-traditional. HTH.

Pretty much anyone who is not K-JD says they are non-trad.

I've gotten the feeling that movement lately has happened in the morning. But you'd have to look through the thread to confirm.

really? hmm - your michigan offer is pretty stellar, if Cal matched it that would be a great option, I would take it over reapplying

Ummm, idk. I'm still sorting out need-based aid from Cal, and I sent a match scholarship for 1/3 tuition from GTown PILS. I'd probably only consider it if I get both. Otherwise, HYS have better finaid. There's also a fair amount of outside scholarships that I'm looking at. The most important thing for me is that I go to a school that sets me up for govt, and only 8% of Cal's class do clerkships. Also, career services said getting a DOJ as a 1L is very difficult whereas it's the standard for HYS.

What are you guys talking about regarding lower and uppercase emails? Not that I need another thing to go crazy over

Is it late enough in the cycle you feel comfortable sharing your stats?

If your email goes lowercase it mean you have cancer.

I will as soon as I get my DLS from SLS. Essentially, my LSAT is keeping me out of the T-7. Only reason I'm being considered now is due to my softs.

If your email goes lowercase it means you'll get a call the next day admitting you. Or at least that's what I've heard.

FYI, a non-traditional student is an individual who is not a K-BA/BS. Essentially someone who is graduating college at a non-traditional age. An applicant who is older but a K-BA/BS just means they've had WE but they're not considered non-traditional students.

Does anyone know approximately how many spots people are predicting are left? Consistent with data from past cycles on LSN perhaps

There are 127 members on the (unofficial) FB group. I would imagine that represents a number higher than the TLS/LSN calculus because I am sure there are many people who just lurk TLS but joined the FB group.

Officially living on this thread. Just got dinged off of a Harvard hold and Yale shot me down two days ago.

I'm a long shot but not letting up the dream!

Stanford just taking their damn time or what? I applied to 15 schools, and all along ive been most anxious to hear from them. all 14 others have gotten back to me WEEKS ago.

When can we suspect a stanford call? any ideas? Im 169, 3.8 so im not exactly sure its going to be good news... but any news is better than none.
