Woot! Got some scholly love from Northwestern (75k). Unless I get a last minute offer from NYU/CLS/Penn, my cycle is pretty much done. Time to start researching apartments in Chicago...

Thought I'd add my results to the pile.

170/2.77
Radio and Television major
4 years working in litigation support as a trial technician
great letters of reference (imo)
February retake of Lsat meant extremely late application completions (original LSAT was 169)

In at GW and UGA no money yet, but only been a few days since acceptance.
Still waiting at W&L, American, Houston, Lewis & Clark.

GW was my number 1 choice, but I'm going to need at least a little money to make it worth it.

All apps were submitted in November, save Yale and Northwestern, which went in December. No Why X statements were written. Plenty of work experience is the only soft. Cornell and Texas were EA, all others RD. The only interview was an off-campus with Northwestern.


As disclaimer, I'm well aware that applying to the T6 was a waste of app fees, but I'd rather hear no than wonder. (Guess the T6 apps weren't a total waste!)

Yale - February reject
Stanford - March reject
Harvard - January reject
Columbia - February waitlist (reserve)
Chicago - February interview, March admit
NYU - Pending
Penn - January admit
Virginia - December admit
Berkeley - January reject
Northwestern - February waitlist (hold)
Georgetown - December admit, February withdrawal
Cornell - Bumped to RD, March waitlist (reserve)
Texas - December admit, w/$


Edited for February


Edited for March

Just saw this thread, figured I'd join in.

UGPA: 2.84 (switched majors, wrote addendum), LSAT: 172
Pretty decent softs, biracial but not URM.

Columbia: UR
NYU: UR
Virginia: WL
UCLA: WL then Accepted after LOCI and visit.
USC: Rejected
GW: WL then Accepted after LOCI
UC Irvine: Accepted $$
UC Davis: UR
UC Hastings: Accepted
American: UR
Loyola Marymount (Los Angeles): Accepted
Chapman: Accepted $$

I'm 99% going to UCLA unless Columbia/NYU thinks my app said 3.84 instead of 2.84.

Sent in all my apps at the beginning of last week. In review/first read at Berkeley NYU and USC. Still complete/processing at UCLA, Michigan, Northwestern, Duke, and several others.

Edited 2/6/2013: Complete at all schools except Cornell. Accepted to UCLA on 2/1 with 25K per year. Accepted to Vanderbilt on 1/23 and waiting to hear from them about scholarship. Waitlisted at UVA on 1/29.


I'm now in at Duke, Michigan, USC, Emory, and Northwestern. I've been rejected at Berkeley and put on reserve at Columbia. I got 95K at Vanderbilt, 90K at Emory, and 60K at USC. No word on scholarship money yet from the others.

Still waiting on decisions from NYU, Penn, Chicago, Harvard, Stanford, and Georgetown. I had my alumni interview for Georgetown last week and I expect to hear from them and Penn within the next 2 weeks.

where are u leaning towards?


I really don't know. I've tried to look at all the employment data I can find and have come to the conclusion that there's just not much difference between Chicago, Penn, and UVA. UT is a step down, but it would be in-state tuition plus scholarship money, so the lack of expense may be worth the more limited employment opportunities.

I think that when all is said and done I'll get some money out of at least a couple of the other three, so that may well be what determines where I attend.

Also, I should have held off on my March update a few more days. NYU rejection came Friday.

Anyone had any luck off the waitlists? According to last year, mid to late april was when people started seeing actions.

174/3.2 (3.6 Undergrad GPA)
applied late Jan.

In:
NU 135K
Georgetown (don't know $ yet)
UCLA 90K

Waitlist:
Columbia
Chicago
NYU
UPenn
UVA
Michigan
Duke

Out:
Yale
Stanford
Berkeley

Haven't heard:
Harvard (expecting a ding)

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the schools I got into but my cycle def. followed TLS wisdom that it really is all about the #s. I had great softs and my cycle came out exactly like a k-JD's would with the same #s. 5 yrs political/nonprofit WE (and I want to do PI), 4 excellent rec letters including a solid one from a former state AG I personally worked with, diversity statement about being a refugee, persecuted minority, living through war in another country (non-URM), and GPA addendum.

I'm going to head over to the "What are my chances" forum now and be that annoying person that sends everyone to lsn and tells them "no one cares about your softs!"

*edited to add waitlist for NYU

I have similar #s, marginally worse GPA, and I'm only in at GULC and held at NU, reserve at Cornell, WL at Chi, P, V, ding at M, and waiting on CLS. Decent but not great softs like yours. :/

Damn, NU opened their legs for you with that scholly. Sorry, that's not typical money from NU. I have better numbers and only got 90k. Your WE and other softs probably got you some extra dough.

*blushing* Well it's combined need/merit so I figured it's because I work at a nonprofit and therefore have no money. But maybe that's true and the need aspect had nothing to do with it. Also, I embody the Northwestern Difference (TM). Have you decided on UVA or still thinking? Have you had a chance to visit the schools? Would love to hear your thoughts (I've only been to the NU ASW and I loved it).

What would be your top choice? I bet there'll be decent movement on the WLs this year if you're not happy with GULC, but either way you're in a pretty good position. GULC is a great school.

I'm not expecting to get in at Chi at all but honestly, any of the schools would be great. I am visiting Penn and UVA in a few days so hopefully one of those schools will show some love before GULC's deadline :/

Update for me (2.3 / 167):

Georgia - Accept ($)
Georgia State - Accept
Emory - Priority WL (Probably accept after deposit deadline)
Georgia Washington - WL
William and Mary - WL
Alabama - Pending

Better than expected considering the TTT GPA. I am somewhat surprised I will likely be accepted into Emory, but without some serious merit aid it's not a realistic possibility, especially with part-time evening @ GSU allowing me to graduate debt free.
