Not really shocking. Splitters gonna split. Well NYU is surprising, but they didn't like me either. MVP is a crapshoot.

Also, congrats frances! It looks like we all turned out okay :)

168/3.0 (applied in late January)

In- GULC, UCLA, WUSTL, Emory, BU, BC, NEU, and Suffolk
WL- Penn
Rejected- UCB, UT and the big H

I'm decently happy considering I underscored my PT average by 7 points.

Absolutely! Already sent the optional 2 page essay and additional LOR from a Penn grad that I've been working on a project with. Moving forward with GULC in the meantime.

Where are you headed?

Are we cool with "reverse" splitters here? I'd start a separate thread but I feel like there are a lot fewer of us and I don't want to spam :p (and the cycle is mostly over lol)

3.8/161

Santa Clara - Accept (w/ $)
U. San Diego - Accept (w/ $$)
Loyola LA - Accept (w/ $$)
Pepperdine - Accept (w/ $$)
UC Hastings - Accept*
UC Davis - Accept*
USC - WL

*there's $ but I believe that's aid-based, not merit...I think...

My cycle is finally complete!
173/3.35

Stanford- out
Columbia- WL
Chicago- WL
NYU- out
Penn- out
Virginia- WL (withdrawn)
Michigan- in (w/$75k) (withdrawn)
Berkeley- out
Duke- WL (withdrawn)
Northwestern- in (withdrawn)
Georgetown- Priority WL (withdrawn)
UCLA- in (w/$120k)

I'm going to stay on the Chicago and Columbia WL's, but I'm excited and content with my decision to attend UCLA in the fall.

nah, a reverse splitter is just someone who should retake.


Way to be a jerk. Because all people can retake or want to or are capable of scoring higher or scoring a number you find acceptable... Because all people who are not going to the T14 are people who shouldn't even bother becoming lawyers...

The vast majority of people who claim they "can't" retake have no legitimate reasons for such a claim. Considering the present cost of legal education, why wouldn't you retake when it could mean hundreds of thousands of dollars?

Exactly this. This thread is for splitters. Our GPAs are set in stone. Unlike so-called "reverse splitters," there's nothing we can do to change our comparatively weak number. Reverse splitters can retake and change their situations.


And it's up to you to tell them this bit of information that they have never, ever heard before and decided against for whatever reason because since this is going to affect the rest of your life you should have a say.

Just tell the person to make a different thread.

Applied in november, softs are weak to non-existent and my uGPA was 3.3. I thought my PS was pretty good; I had it looked at by one of the professional services but who knows.

If it weren't for Chicago, I'd be pretty upset with my cycle, but as is, I'm extremely happy with the outcome. FWIW, I'll be attending Chicago.
