Previously had a different username, but was pretty transparent name-wise. So, perhaps now I'm a bit more unidentifiable.


169/3.16/Non-URM/2+ Yrs WE -- asterisk = school specific essay; also spent a great deal of time tailoring the end of each personal statement for each school.

Vanderbilt - Accepted
Notre Dame* - Accepted ($$)
Wisconsin - Accepted
Minnesota - Accepted ($$)
William & Mary - Accepted ($$)
Temple - Accepted ($)

Texas (ED) - Rejected

WUSTL - In Review
Emory - In Review (I think?)
Northwestern - In Review
Berkeley - In Review
Michigan* - Complete/In Review

Penn* - Complete

Dont be offended. We're (or at least I was) just jealous and annoyed at myself for getting a low GPA so I hated on the 3.4 crowd and up. You know, kind of like those people that get upset when they "only" get a 172 on the LSAT. I totally get why you could be upset with that, but have sympathy on us true GPA undesirables.

I get it. Ftr I am upset with my GPA AND that I "only" got a 173. So I understand where the hatred comes from. But you know what, I hate people with a 3.7+ and 175+, so isn't it funny how alike we really are?

Yeah we have this debate every splitter thread and I didn't want to launch into it with Noodley, so I stayed mum... but OP was pretty clear:

For the sake of not making this a humblebrag thread for people who are only considered splitters at HYS let's say splitters with <3.3 and >163 would be the target for this thread. Edit and update posts as cycle continues.

I gave up trying to figure out which one it was and just accepted that it was the best of both worlds, panda AND dog. My favorite avatar on TLS!
