So far, I've been admitted off the waitlist at:

American
GMU

Got off the waitlist with a significant scholarship at UW. Still too much for what is essentially a regional school, but it was nice to see.

Emory (lolz) and Northwestern. Here's hoping I get in off of the 800 other waitlists I'm on.

Harvard - off waitlist and against most odds.

It can happen. Until the moment I was accepted, I never would have believed it. In fact, many people on TLS with higher stats than me mildly ripped on me in threads, saying I didn't have much of a chance. And I applied with that fact fully clear in my mind, that my chances were slim.

But this fall, I'm attending Harvard...and many of them aren't (Of course, they are still attending awesome schools. Not saying that they aren't intelligent or capable, etc. Just that it is despite what many would expect in this situation.)

It's not over until it's over. Numbers DO matter, but once you have competitive numbers, "softs" really do make a difference. It's impossible to know what the admissions people are looking for and what they will do. Having a 180/4.0 isn't always an auto-admit.

I don't think that's the point. She's just trying to say don't believe everything you read on here and keep a more open mind than not. A lot of people on this site tend to overemphasize the number aspect just a drop, and here's an example where they could have persuaded someone not to apply to harvard who has now gotten in. Definitely a post worth writing imo.

This is good advice. Your stellar GPA helped, but let's face it your best LSAT made you iffy even after retakes. You did good. Congrats for applying despite negative vibes and for not giving up. That speaks well to your tenacity. It can be difficult to have confidence when people tell you to quit.

I just wish other posters here would follow this advice- unless they constantly tank the LSAT
and have no chance of improving. Everyone else should try again.

Good luck and I hope you inspire others not to compromise just because going to law school Is simpler than trying again.
