Can anyone top my complete date of 9/24? I submitted within the first hour of the application opening in September. I am still under review and have not received a DLS. What in the world does this mean?

Sorry! With a high LSAT like that, I ain't got no shot.

Wonder if you're getting calls today or tomorrow. Congrats everyone!

Random: I think law schools need to acknowledge those from low income backgrounds should be considered URMs. There's not much socio-economic diversity in these top schools.

Oh gosh, I hope it's today. Today's my last sick day at home, and I don't think I could be at all productive tomorrow while waiting for something to go down.

Does anyone know if Stanford does a wave of DLS, or are they, keeping with the theme I guess, more sporadic? I'm safe for right now, but I was just about to write up my LoCI and send it through. Think I should wait until the end of today? SHIT'S STRESSFUL, waiting to die, man lol.

I feel like they send DLS's pretty sporadically rather than in big waves.

I'm not sure I understand the question but eventually there will be a big wave. It would take till 2014 to sporadically ding everyone.

there are countless elements of law school admissions that are objectively unbalanced.. diversity is judged by how it is quantified in rankings, just like undergraduate gpas, which vary tremendously in rigor and significance. its a game you play with the cards handed to you -- if you overcame economic obstacles, that could work in your favor by checking off one box, but it will remain a different box from the diversity %'s listed in magazines and ABA reports.

I don't even think we could restandardize admissions to make them more "fair" no matter what was tried
