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.

There will be waves of WLs and dings in the next two weeks.

Haha, it wasn't too much to type, so I thought, why not? Lol.

But thanks so much, all! I am in such shock right now! And for those that are curious, they told me on the phone that they just finished up their final review last night and are rushing to call people before ASW. So, I hope that adds to the pot of knowledge on here! Now, off to call my folks!

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


I agree that it's very difficult to standardize admissions to make it fair, but there are groups that are historically underrepresented in higher education which includes those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and certain ethnic minorities. If you've been reading the NYTimes, there seems to be an article every month or so talking about the barriers those from lower economic backgrounds face when gaining admission to elite colleges. I think this group in particular deserves to be included in the ABA URM report. I know law school admissions officers DO pay attention to economic background, but this group definitely doesn't get a legit URM boost. /2cents

But that's not to say I don't believe law schools should recruit ethnic URMs because most law schools have terrible minority percentages.

Congrats, you guys! I don't even think I'd be able to answer my phone, so kudos to you lol.

Well, if the ~final review is over with, should I even bother with an LoCI at this point? Because I could very easily continue to eat the rest of the sandwich for the time being instead, I mean.

I figure at this point they've decided if you are WL or ding. If I am WL, I will send an LOCI immediately when I find out. if ding, no point.

I'm very curious about this topic - I was raised in a low SES household by a single mother, and ended up at an elite undergrad. Now I'm here. I've outperformed my numbers a bit, and I wonder how much of that is the fact that part of my PS focused on my background.

I'd agree it should be considered URM--I felt like an alien every day at my historically-rich college--but it's not quite as easy to quantify as race (despite the fact there are actual numbers attached). Most people consider themselves lower on the totem pole than they are; they can't be trusted to tick a "low SES" box on an application. If your parents make 100k+, you are in the wealthiest quintile, but those people consider themselves middle-class. People around the median income consider themselves lower-middle-class. And it varies depending on age; my mom made 15k-25k for most of my childhood+teenagedom--which is the lowest quintile, albeit barely--but moved up big-time after I left for college, and now she makes 60k. Would I qualify for hypothetical low-SES URM status?

Back on topic: congrats, all who've gotten calls today. Still waiting here. Complete late Dec, UR since mid-Jan.

edited because grammar.

FYI, last year there was a DLS wave the evening of the URM wave.

Ready for this to end, I guess... :?

Um, yeah, seriously. How long does it take to update the system? If it's over, it's over, I just want to know!
