Should I send in a LOCI/updated resume to reflect my uncanny ability to find an appropriate GIF for every mood?

From what I understand the most they give out outside of a Rothman is 30K a year. Up to you to decide if that's worth it.


So how do people on LSN from last year have 105/120k?

yes some will get 35,40 per year or there about but not many. I think the 105/120 is reserved for those with 169 LSAT minimum and a 3.9 or a minority with very high LSAT or GPA or something like that. But these are different times with the collapsing applications. I think USC might spend all its money to defend its median. so if you are a 167 with a 3.9 gpa you might get a really good deal.

I guess I should check in. I submitted 1/3 and I went into first read on 1/18. I was very hesitant to post that because I know most of you have been waiting months without movement :( but I wanted to check in.

Last week i got an email from USC asking if i was going to apply and it was sent to my school email (email on my LSAC account). I did request a fee waiver earlier but that was via gmail. well below the median, not an URM. Any idea why this might happen? I was considering doing this, but it's a waste of $100 if they are just trying to pad their stats. I do have very good softs, but nothing they would know about via LSAC (Varsity athlete, startup experience, IBAnking, etc.)

Are we figuring 50ish Rothman invites altogether this cycle and 4 are invited to LA?

IMO, sounds like they just want to boost the # of applications they've received. If your numbers are far enough below their medians that an acceptance seems unlikely, reiterate your request for a fee waiver and if you get it apply.

Holy shit. Committee first read 1/23. I went complete 11/5 and this is the first movement since then.

That Sloth "Deal With It" GIF is so choice.
