April Updated Results:
First my stats-
LSAT: 170
UGPA: 2.77
Major GPA: 3.06
10 yrs out of school, four yrs of litigation support employment. Decent LORs including a partner from one of L.A.'s top firms.

GWU- Accepted - 30K scholarship (over 3 years), 10-16k yearly need-based grant pending
UGA- Accepted - 15k Scholarship (over 3 years), Tuition Equalization Scholarship lowers tuition to in-state
Lewis and Clark - Accepted - Told to expect consideration of money in early May. Withdrawing.
W&L - Waitlisted - Withdrawn
American - Waitlisted - Withdrawn
Houston - took too damn long to decide - Withdrawn


Decision might come down to what kind of need grant GW offers.

Much respect for a lot of you. Those LSAT scores are INSANE.

*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.


NYU and UVA gave me equal money, so I'm stuck between those two atm. I imagine I'll hear back from Columbia soon, too.

No one says softs don't matter. They say softs only matter when they're something truly worth noting. Going to guess this guy had something significant.

I think I said it ... I guess softs do matter and it was just my personality that drove 'em away.

I think it's more of a GPA floor situation. It seems to be much easier for a school to accept a 3.4 than a 3.2 once you get into 170+ LSAT territory. 3.4 seems to be the line above which you tend to see acceptances at many T14 schools, anything below that is a crapshoot.

From past posts it looks like tee.ell.ess's WE is a non-profit PI legal shop that had many school-funded grads from top law schools. Seems pretty solid. It's hard for me to compare that to my or others' experience to see if this is a case of softs or GPA or applying early or PS quality or rec letters but I tend to lean toward GPA. Either way, congrats tee.ell.ess! Those are great schools (and major congrats on rtk)!

Well, all my decisions are in, at least. Here's how a 3.55/179 did:

Harvard: WL
Columbia: WL
Chicago: WL
NYU: IN with 35k a year scholly
UVA: IN with 35k a year scholly
Penn: WL
Michigan: IN with 25k a year scholly
NU: IN with 30k a year scholly

Only surprise is the amount I received from NYU and the WL from Columbia. I honestly am pretty surprised at the Columbia WL.

Probably would have got $$ at NU. But then again I would have guessed you'd get Penn and NYU too

I would reapply and not ED + apply to all of the T-14. You cherry picked schools way too much. I don't care for some T-14's just as much as the next person, but I am still going to apply to all of them. Plus, with your 3.18, you cannot afford to be too picky.
