and i've gotten yelled at for saying what a reverse splitter should be defined as. which is why i just said good luck to all, arguing over terminology is useless

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


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.


AH same with me! Took a prep course, and was scoring 168+ on practice tests. Ended up with a 162 on the December test, (my third attempt). I am not even mad about my score considering I raised it five points in less than a month.

Cumulative GPA: 3.7; degree GPA: 3.81 (4.0 in my major). I know the latter doesn't really matter but it also doesn't hurt.

164/3.89
Non-URM, Non-traditional
Masters x2
Veteran

In:
Harvard (attending)
Michigan
UVA
Georgetown
Cornell
GWU
Washington
Ohio St
Wm & Mary

Withdrew from Duke, Penn, and Colorado prior to decision. I believe Duke was going to ding me, but we'll never know. :)

Some of this is my particular softs/WE. Some of it, I believe, is the weirdness of this cycle with the shifting dynamics of the market and reduced #s of applicants. I saw evidence of a thorough review across the board.

Yeah, I think that you are pretty much every reverse splitter's dream come true, kingsfield. :lol:

I enjoy reading these sort of things; hope others will contribute also.

3.95/162, non-URM. Also a veteran.

In:
Illinois + sch.
Notre Dame
William & Mary + sch.
Washington & Lee
Chicago-Kent + sch.
DePaul + sch.
Penn State + sch.
Wisconsin + sch.
JMLS + full sch.

Waitlist:
Fordham

Pending:
Chicago
Northwestern

I wrote extra essays for IL, ND, W&L, & Northwestern, and I've interviewed at Northwestern and Chicago. I retook LSAT, never scored much higher in training. My experience resembles kingsfield69 to some extent in that I felt each school has taken a good amount of time to dive in to my application; I've been waiting at Chicago, for example, since October.

Would you be willing to share what you believe got you into Chicago? You don't have to be specific if you don't want, but if you could at least give a vague reply (great story in PS) I'd appreciate it. My numbers are similar, so I'm interested.
