No. There are not violent assaults in U City weekly. That's just factually wrong.

There is a fair amount of crime--car break-ins, robberies, assaults--that takes place primarily in the Delmar Loop, and in the immediate surroundings of the Delmar Metro station, but U City is largely residential and doesn't experience the kind of chronic, violent crime that you describe. That sort of thing tends to take place downtown and in the north side of the city. There are a lot of middle and upper-middle class residents in U City, and I guarantee you they would not remain there if the crime was as bad as you say it is.

JFC this cycle needs to end already. Can. Not. Wait.

Reminds me of the Oct waiting thread. I was like Harold Camping-convinced scores were coming despite LSAC's official word that they werent.

I think it just hit me recently how ridiculous and stressful this entire thing has been. Obviously I was aware of it all throughout, but looking back over the past year or so when I first started cramming for my third and final LSAT...my life has been one giant waiting room. The knowledge that it's almost over makes me a weird combination of excited, relieved, and that nervous feeling you get when approaching what you know will be a major life change. It's almost scary, but in a good way.

Yeah I have had friends that have reacted the same way during the cycle. All of them were clear to tell me how much they thoroughly hated the entire admissions process.

Not in all of U City. There's about a 10-block radius that has a lot of violent crime I'm talking about. I'm not sure why your crime-report thing doesn't have them, but they exist. I get a newsletter daily from STL law enforcement agencies dictating crimes of concern. U City may not be the most crime-infested, due to the presence of those upper-middle class residents you speak of, but it does get a fair amount. Obviously, murders don't happen all the time, but there are still violent crimes, especially assaults and robberies.

Edit: I meant to say 10 block strip, not radius. This is what I get for posting right before a nap.

I wonder if schools like GW have the luxury of being more generous this cycle because they have so many frkn kids paying sticker to subsidize the scholly budget..

First of all, assaults and robberies are not even necessarily characterized as "violent." Many of the assaults reported on that map (which, by the way, is taken directly from the STL Metropolitan Police Dept.'s website: --LinkRemoved--) are labeled "simple assault--no injury". I agree that U City sees its fair share of crime, but I dispute the assertion that they are usually violent, or that violent assaults happen there weekly. The crime map and other sources of verified crime statistics clearly disprove that idea.

I think, maybe, the primary source of our disagreement stems from different understandings of the boundaries of U City. My guess is what you're hearing is actually coming out of Pagedale, Wellston, Vinita Terrace, and Vinita Park. Or you just accidentally exaggerated the scope of violent crimes in U City. Who knows.

Yesterday someone asked me if my cycle was done. I told them I was still waiting on four schools and they were like "But you applied since September!". I. KNOW.

I think there have been some trickling in here and there recently, but the consensus is that there will be a large wave of decisions sometime in March.

I swear, that question... :evil: :evil: :evil: I've basically told people that as soon as I know, I promise I'll spam them all with the news. Until then, STFU and let me develop ulcers in peace.

The thread slows down as people vie for position for top of 200th page.

I can't help but feel like we're in the lull before the storm. No new acceptances. WL/dings aren't out yet. Scholarships are constantly a day away.

+1 to just wanting the cycle done. A year of this is too much.

And think, we have some 2nd year veterans in the mix. Maybe by that point you've learned the process enough to handle it better?

Probably not.

This is my first actual cycle, but I was all ready to apply last year before I got a pretty sweet job and decided to take a year and redo the LSAT. It was a great decision, but between that and the first year I took to work and study, I will have been in this game for THREE YEARS by the time I start.

Yeah I first took the LSAT in Oct. 2011. I just realized that from the time I started studying for the LSAT to when I start law school, people will have already completed law school.
