Do you all think an applicant with a 165 LSAT and a GPA below median but above 25th has a chance? I did not apply earlier because I didn't think I would get in, plus idk if I want to work in the Midwest at all.
That said, I just received a fee waiver from WUSTL. It is super late in the cycle, and I have been accepted to other schools, but would I still have a chance? Not URM, btw. Thanks!

My motto is when in doubt, apply. $21 bucks to have your hat in another ring isn't a bad deal at all.

Wow, I guess a lot of people have been getting fee waivers lately. Maybe applications are down a lot more than I was expecting, I guess that's a good thing.

I can't bring myself to wade back through all of the pages, but has there been any releases here on scholarship money?

No



And no decisions, although it looks like me and wannabe are the only one still waiting on those

Is there a way to find out my final LSAC gpa? I never calculated it and am curious if it changes at all in their formula.

Your academic score report on the LSAC website will tell you.

You should be able to access some kind of "Transcript summary report" or something under the transcript tab of your LSAC account

I think I found it but the two numbers I found are the same so I'm not positive. I guess that it just didn't change at all. But thanks guys!

If you have never transfered, retaken any classes, or gotten an A+, then the GPA should be the same.

I'm still right there with you all. Interview with Orr was 1.7, which is also my last status change. I've had to avoid this thread and manage expectations so that I don't give myself a hernia while waiting. I got way to excited about the prospect of WUSTL and the housing possibilities it accommodates (the $1700 I spend on my one-bedroom in Oakland would apparently be worth, what, an entire zip-code in St. Louis?).

Fellow Californians who were discussing possible moves back: the longer I spend here the harder it becomes to justify the ridiculous cost of living, especially as it becomes increasingly over populated. I've lived in SF, LA, SD, and the East Bay during the past 10 years and it was all at least reasonably affordable until 2011. Tech relegated me to the East Bay and though I still love it here, I can't justify paying so much to live in a place where I can reasonably expect to average one mugging and one break-in per year. Thanks for ruining the SF rental market, Zynga.

Then again, I've become awfully reliant on all this amazing vegan food and reasonable coffee...

Or if your school counts +/- grades different. My UG treats B+ as 3.5, for example.

Lawschoolpredictor.com has a LSAC GPA calculator on there, too, fwiw

I was wondering if summer classes would affect it at all, but apparently they did not. Thank you for clarifying the things that do make it change though.

That's absurd. What is an A-? Are you sure it's not B+ is 3.25 and A- is 3.75?

Even that is stupid.
