Do URMs get included in the median calculations?

In school's medians? Yes.

In my own data I'm attempting to run? Well, in my perfect world, everyone would fill out the spreadsheet to completion and I would be able to pop up graphs and numbers for both URM and non-URM.

This is unfortunately not the case.

Last time I checked the spreadsheet it said 1/16

I haven't updated the spreadsheet/LSN yet (celebrating!) but my interview was on 1/21.

Congrats to todays JS2s

It's rough missing this wave though. I was really hoping I would see something today, and I am starting to really worry that H is not gonna happen for me

Of course, it would be so much easier to do all of this if people would update the spreadsheet with your numbers and your accepted date, respond to PMs, maybe include them in your original post, or say something like ">75th, at median."

Like actually. Is there a point at all to people with exactly one post not posting their numbers???

Congrats to today's admits. December JS1s, I'm still hangin' in here with you and keeping my hopes up that drawstring is right here. I hope that they are sitting on a bunch of us to let in in later waves or at the very least WL (and subsequently admit).

Very new to top law schools and this thread but here goes - Sooooo this is probably the absolute dumbest question in the world but I'm absolutely terrified that I misheard my JS2 and in my euphoria blackout mistook the word "wait list" for the word "acceptance".... Do they only call definite admits or do they call wait lists as well?? I know this is the most absurd question in the world but I literally can't even wrap my head around this right now and feel like I definitely misheard her....

They only call for acceptances and there have been no reports of waitlists yet.

You're in.

Can you imagine if they called people to congratulate them on being waitlisted :lol:

Congrats on the acceptance Asweat--you have nothing to sweat now!

GPA: 4.0+ LSAT: 170

Had my JS1 on Jan 14th! Thanks for the reassurance and I promise I'm not a total idiot I literally just could not fathom getting this call and was sure it was a joke. Good luck to all :-)

Of course you aren't. much props, many well done.

This, btw, discredits the medians theory

Here's hoping tomorrow will provide me and the other left-behinds with JS2s
It feels right, at least, given how dense the calls seemed to be today.
Still, I could endure being strung along until April if it meant going to Harvard.

No, because 4.0+ is pretty rare. Also, there were another two admits with similar numbers today, just not on TLS.
