Yeah... pretty much the monday before Feb 1st... whatever day that was.

I know... the prospect of waiting another year, only to go through this again just seems awful, but its a possibility.

You should do much better if you apply early.

You might still end up okay. Just be patient with the wait lists over the summer. Congrats on the great score.

Thank you .... and I genuinely appreciate the encouragement.

Where I'm at right now in my ever-evolving plan (and I mean on evolving on the daily) is that I'll pay the seat deposit at the best school-$$ value I get in at and then ride the waitlists. I'm 24 in May and do not want to wait until I'm 25 to begin Law School, especially when I will still have the momentum from finishing my UG in the early summer (5 year senior with a year off in the middle... I'm a little special). But once I get a little more information I'll start consulting lawyer family friend types on the best decision for me. Who knows, maybe that will be the best decision.

FYI, average age at most law schools is 24-25. I'll be 26 when I matriculate in the fall.

Also, don't ask shit boomers for help with your decision. That's what TLS is for.

Hopefully you won't have to make that tough choice. If you get a T14 or a good regional with a large scholarship you could just go, since that's probably your best outcome with your split.

Haha shit boomers! Duly noted. We'll just see what happens. Certainly will be here updating with any developments that occur.

Hey, just out of curiousity, how do you guys think my cycle is going based purely on numbers? I am kind of nervous by the waitlists for UIUC, UC Davis, BC and W&L. I am above all of their medians and I am starting to think that even though my GPA is the anchor attached to my app, that there is another factor bogging it down as well. Thoughts?

I think it's just part of the unpredictableness of being a sub-3 splitter. I've been waitlisted at UIUC, Indiana, Fordham, and GW, and I'm above all of their LSAT medians. Yet, I've seen other people get in to those schools with lower stats and I've also gotten into higher ranked schools.

Won't know till WL movement is winding down. So far looks like we're all getting held/WL where we'd expect. But no matter what happens Pedestrian got Yale, so this will go down in history as the greatest splitter cycle ever, even if the rest of us don't over perform.
