I know LSN says it does not look like I'd have any chance, but it's still hard to completely write it off when my numbers are in the ballpark.
I would consider a 10-20% percent chance "worth it," would I maybe be in that range or not? Appreciate any thoughts!
did you try to solicit a fee waiver?
but otherwise a 10-20% chance isn't all that bad, and Berkeley seems to be the most committed to this "holistic review" everyone talks about.
Your softs might push you into the accept or wl pile.
I thought Berkeley didn't do merit waivers?
I got a fee waiver, but you're right it was probably for americorps service and not merit based
I sent the same email to all schools which included proof of service and gpa/lsat.
