Everyone else that got in - see you at ASW!


When did you submit? January as well?

WAY TO GO!


Thanks! Climbing down from cloud 9 and getting back to work is SO hard right now!

Submitted 12/5, complete 12/14.

Bahahah thanks, but I'm still calling it a mistake.

Other admits... if you answered the phone call, did you get an email as well?

Nope, no email (at least not yet). Just the call. She said they're mailing my packet today. I'm in DC...I hope they sent it Priority. I don't think I can wait the week or so it might take for First Class.

Doesn't SLS typically do status updates on Fridays?

The status checker changes to decision letter sent -- but only after you've gotten the call or received the e-mail.

Huge congrats to all the new admits!
My hands are shaking just seeing the good news thus far! :D
I think I would embarass myself on the phone with Dean Deal if she ever decided to call me.
The West Coaster within me is screaming SLS so it would be a dream come true if I ever get admitted.

Here's to more movement over the next week! :D

Congrats to everyone who just got in!

Starting to look suspiciously like a 3.8 GPA floor.

Just as well--East Coast is the Beast Coast.

http://lawschoolnumbers.com/jimbo89 - Sure he's non-trad, but 3.5 is well below 3.8

Last year, several URMs below 3.8, and also non-URM people:
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/hart4heisman - 3.65
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/brewst - 3.45
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/AspiringAcademic - 3.7... but also a PhD

It seems like most of the low-GPA acceptances come later in the cycle, so I guess there could be a temporary 3.8 floor

if there is an lsat "floor", its way below your score. I believe they are more concerned with low GPA's (as in, they won't admit them)

jimbo89 seems like an outlier: non-traditional, "bi-racial minority", "extenuating circumstances to explain GPA/upward trend", and "other things" make me think that he might be special. But you're right about the others (though brewst did not specify non-URM)--probably just a 3.8ish floor to avoid being held.

Since MOTM did this for me:

There were several people a couple years back accepted with 167 or lower.

http://lawschoolnumbers.com/thecornballer
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/ElMargarita
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/usonesinbetween

Two in March, one in December. Plus, 4.08 is a really high number.
