I'm almost done with filling out both forms from my estimated 1040 form and then I'm filing my taxes pretty soon. Does anyone know if they will send offers based on the estimated forms or will they wait until your taxes are filed and you update the forms?


I remember for undergrad in general, financial aid was often made based on estimates. So I would imagine they would do the same?

I assume so too. I'm just trying to figure out if that two weeks jamesta25 mentioned would be from the time you submitted your estimated forms or from when you update it after filing taxes.

No status checker. Gotta wait it out.

Whats your top choice? And what kind of stats btw?

They don't. I saw in an earlier thread like 2015 class that they did but this year they didn't have one.



My top would probably be Stanford but that is a decent stretch. Stats: 3.3 GPA (With some crazy circumstances and a strong last 3 years) 165 LSAT and strong softs

I won't say it absolutely won't happen, but without URM and some amazing softs (did you cure cancer?) Stanford's probably not gonna happen. Berkeley's probably out with those numbers too.

Hey no dream crushing on Fridays lol. I'm lower than you on LSAT but higher on GPA. Strong softs as well. But either way its worth a shot at Berkeley and Stanford. We live once so we go with no regret! Am I right?


My bad. Thanks for crushing my dream of crushing dreams though.

In that case Berkeley's not unrealistic. Stanford is still probably a stretch though unless you're URM, gauging data from LSN.

Haha sorry Cal Trask. Your dreams will have to sit on the back burner for the weekend ;)

I think you'd be a lot stronger of a candidate but if we use Stanford's 25-50-75th percentiles then I think you're still around the 25th on both. I have a 160 and 3.8 (rounded up by a small fraction so I can't be identified :) ) But I'm out of contention. I think your LSAT score speaks a lot though about admissions cause it seems to me that schools love high LSAT scores. Have you considered USC as well? I think that your score is close to their 75th for LSAT?


I applied to USC and am waiting, granted I am not California or bust. I skipped Berkley because they appeared to have such an emphasis on GPA (according to aba numbers at least). Stanford, I hope, can see the story I wanted to tell.... or something like that. (and all of my numbers are only close to actual, no need to identify myself)

I wouldn't be so haste to judge berkeley. I've seen some LSN numbers that say they love LSAT quite a bit. (Although I hope the opposite since I'm a reverse splitter lol)


It's probably late for that though. Sorry Berkeley, if you want me to attend please PM me :wink:

Haha yea. If Stanford or Berkeley would call me, I'd be so elated that it wouldn't even be funny.

Hopped up out of my chair and scared the lady.
She said "Wait... it's not wednesday."
"Nope, if it were wednesday I would have hit the roof. It's Hastings."
Still excited.
