Postby simplycatalina » Thu Jan 17, 2013 1:03 am

Anyone who considers yourself to be a reverse splitter, post your results this cycle. I trust your judgment!

Have you thought about taking a prep course and retaking the LSAT? Your UGPA is brilliant - perhaps you should use it with a higher score. If you can crack 165, you will be seriously competitive for T14.

p.s. you might STILL crack T14 but 165/+ will almost make it yours to lose. If you can somehow raise it to 170, you should be able to get into HYS (maybe not with money) and CCN with money

162, 3.76 (<- one bad quarter freshman year w/2.7 GPA, 3.8-4.0s galore forward). 3yr honors double major, leadership, PI law-related internships, Asian American, female, LGBT, first generation immigrant, PI-oriented, wrote every optional essay and addendum, submitted early-mid November.

Rejected
- Harvard
- Columbia (ED)
- U Texas (EA)

Waitlisted
- Georgetown
- Fordham

Accepted
- Minnesota $16k/yr
- UC Irvine $20k/yr (in-state)
- Wisconsin (asked to keep confidential)
- BC
- BU
- U Washington
- WUSTL
- UC Hastings

TBD
- Berkeley
- UCLA
- Vanderbilt
- USC
- UC Davis

With the weirdness of this cycle, I really regret not also submitting to NYU, Penn, and Michigan as I love them ... it's probably way too late now, with these numbers hm :/

Dear bettercallsaul91,

I think you have a seriously good shot at all of these schools. It is good that you have written the optional essays because, given your high GPA and excellent profile, some of the non-T14 schools might have thought you will not come and they might have been tempted to YP you. I think you have a particularly great shot at Berkeley because of your profile and also because Berkeley loves high GPA's.

Like I advised one of the other posters in this thread, do not waste your brilliant UGPA! Take a prep course perhaps and retake the LSAT.

Great luck!

Thanks for the gut butterflies, nigerian22. You just lifted my spirits :)

I've landed some work that I wouldn't mind staying in for a while, if necessary ... I haven't completely ruled out the possibility of a retake. But I am thinking I like Minnesota and UC Irvine enough to attend, especially if they offer me a public interest scholarship in addition to the merit. It comes down to UMN's clinics vs UCI's faculty. I'm struggling big time as to which I prefer. Since I want nothing but public interest work, I'm comfortable with sticker if I get in to any ranked higher than UMN ...

But yeah ... I may end up taking TLS conventional wisdom ... we'll see ... 162 was my first attempt at the real thing. I appreciate the nudge. And kind words :D

I'm not <164, but I consider myself a reverse splitter.

165 and 3.91, got into Penn (ED) before hearing back from anyone else (just had an interview lined up at Georgetown).

There is definitely hope for reverse splitters, you just have to know how to leverage your positive attributes.

I did take a prep course (blueprint) and got tutoring and managed to get my practice tests up to 170+. I took the test twice and somehow was not able to perform up to my potential. I probably will retake in June (even if just for scholarship money/to get off some waitlists) but I'm applying this cycle anyway just to see what happens.

Congrats everyone! I'm a 160/3.76 from Berkeley and I'm afraid I won't get anywhere. I keep getting attacked here for having to retake but my diagnostic was a 147 so i'm not sure how much hope there is for me. I've applied to about 20 schools so far, most of which I had fee waivers at, so I guess I'll see what happens. I feel like I'll be rejected everywhere, but hopefully that won't be the case.

It won't happen. You'll get into plenty of places.

You preclude a lot of actual "reverse splitters" with these stipulations and instead invite a bunch of people with simply "low numbers" in general to post. :|


Ok I'll change it!!
