Thanks! It looks like we have similar numbers; you'll have to let me know how your cycle goes. Do you have an LSN profile?

We might have slightly different cycles because of that, yes, but I'm still curious to see where applicants with similar credentials end up getting accepted, accepted with schollys (or "schollies," haha not sure), rejected, or waitlisted. Seeing other applicants succeed gives me hope, since I applied relatively late this cycle.

I'm honestly not trying to be an asshole but AA urm status on a 165 + score = hys. 165 on non-urm = no t14.

It's just not the same at all even relatively...

Nah, I don't think you're being an a-hole. I'm not complaining at all; I guess I just didn't realize how much of a difference being AA has on admissions. I knew there was a bump but I didn't think it was as significant as you're saying it is. Regardless, I just like to how other peoples' cycles are going, regardless of URM / non-URM status.

UCLA and Cornell both got me decisions within 15 and 14 days, respectively, of going complete.

I love the "lols" in your profile, haha. That's basically what mine should have said for H and S.

Haha yeah. I heard someone say here that they were "donating $85 to the Harvard endowment" which is how I feel about my application lol. The reason I applied to the unrealistic schools at all is that my significant other is applying to non-law grad programs at those schools and has a very high likelihood of admission. We want to go to school in the same area so we can be together, and I'd hate if he got into Harvard and I didn't even TRY there, you know?

Exactly. There's no reason not to try, especially with how crazy this cycle has been! And you're right... if all else fails, at least we're helping Harvard maintain its high level of prestige with our generous contributions, haha.

For Baylor and for Arizona, I received my admission through snail mail within about a week of becoming complete.
