Same. If scholarships don't come out tomorrow, I'm going to have to sleep with Jack Daniel. He's not a gentle lover, but he gets the job done.

If anything, scholarships may give you a hint at what WUSTL is aiming for. If they give a lot of $$ love to the splitters like you, then you can rest easier!

Maybe, but that's not because there is an indication that there ISN'T a soft 2.8 floor. It's more of there isn't enough data to really indicate anything lol.

Take from it what you will, but it looks to me that ~2.8 is a fairly important target.

Well we also know that apps are down ~20% atm compared to last cycle (which was already a low app cycle). We also know that WUSTL dropped from 167 to 165 in a single year.

So knowing those things I honestly still think you are getting in, though it might be off the WL.

Bunch of #s

Take from it what you will, but it looks to me that ~2.8 is a fairly important target.

Thanks for taking the time to compile, but when I looked at LSN, I only looked at sub-3 combos that were above their LSAT wall for that year. For example, in 2007 165/166s would have been rejected below 3.5, in 2008 again 165/166s rejected below 3.7ish, et al. While it looks like there may have been a soft 2.7/2.8ish floor 2009 and before, it has essentially vanished 2010 and after, which is really more relevant for our purposes since it represents the post-recession declining applicants world.

I mean....even the stats still show I'm headed towards waitlist, not a flat out dinged. Which ill say again I have about as good as reason for why my Gpa is the way it is as you can have (you can pm me if you want). Meaning that ill get accepted if they need me to reach a Median. Which means I need some help in them not being able to get a 168, applicants staying down, and them not having a great yield. I think this year will work in my favor in that regards. But who knows. Am I being blind in my optimism or do I have the right idea? (Be honest)

I do not doubt for one second you'll be attending WUSTL in the fall.

the only thing that doesn't make sense is that if they had to go back and reach for someone like me off of the waitlist last year and ultimately failed in getting that person and in whatever they trying to reach. Why are they doing the same thing again in worse conditions?

You could prep for a June retake incase you do get WLed. I mean I think you'll get in anyway but if you can manage it it couldn't hurt.

I think sending one March 1st would be good timing, at least, I would if I hadn't had any movement.

Anything positive to report? Award? Promotion? New volunteer?

Maybe because you're the main thing keeping this thread entertaining on a day to day basis? I believe it's been mentioned that WUSTL adcomm browses TLS...

Nope. That's why I'm wondering if to write. It'll just be 500 words of wow I really want to come here. They have a PS and DS and both discuss everything about my diversity, story etc.
