Stressin' haaaa..hopefully don't have to wait too much longer for a decision! BJB, I'm gonna try that optimism thing...
I have numbers close to yours so all I can say is.. ya shoulda applied ED
! But seriously, it looks from right now that UGA is really trying to hold their 164 LSAT median. According to LSN, they pretty much accepted anyone with a 164 (regardless of GPA) last year, and I'm thinking since apps have declined this year, they are going to have to break into the 163s a bit more. Optimism seems like a good strategy here!
Also, according to LSN some new decisions came out yesterday. Movement!
Thanks for rubbing it in, BJB... haha.
I do wish I would have applied ED... Unfortunately, I didn't know that I was going to Law School until mid-December when I got selected for this Army program called the Funded Legal Education Program (FLEP). I suppose I can't complain too much because with FLEP the Army is paying for tuition, continuning to pay me my salary while in Law School, and I have a guaranteed job as a JAG after graduation/passing the bar, so if I don't get in life will go on. I was thinking (hoping) that the military experience (including a tour in Afghanistan) and the guarantee of a job would help me outperform my numbers a bit.
UGA is by far my number one choice... I tried to make that clear in my PS, so hopefully that will help out a bit. I am kind of brainstorming/considering sending a LOCI and specifically saying that if offered admission I would withdraw all other applications immediately. Not sure if anyone has any thoughts/advice on that idea? Feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am leaning toward waiting it out, though, and letting the cycle work itself out for a few more weeks. I know I am overthinking/overanalyzing it.
Congrats to all the new admits! bgoodrick and splitter165, y'all are definitely in based on the data.
bgoodrick, I noticed on LSN more than a few splitters with similar numbers to you that had long waits for decision in previous cycles but all eventually got in.
splitter165, you'll love Athens. I'm not originally from Georgia, but when I moved down south and first visited Athens, I fell in love. Just a very cool college town.
