167 LSAT 3.74 GPA. ED. Three strong LOR. Don't know why I didn't at least get waitlisted...


I hate to be a dick, but you're below both medians and should probably retake the LSAT.


Yeah I was planning on the retake but a bunch of family stuff got in the way. Figured with applications down, ED would help bump me enough. Ehh, it is what it is at this point. Good luck to everyone else this cycle!

Me too, I was held. I kinda suspected it would happen, I was below 25th for GPA and below median for LSAT.
I am not too bummed, I think I did well on the December LSAT ( I was doing 170-173 on the preptest before), now I will be able to negotiation scholarships for schools I get into.

169 LSAT and 3.42 GPA, weak W/E and softs, strong LORs



Does this show up on your status checker? Does this mean that they are also rejecting/waitlisting ED people at this point?


Also, how do we think they are choosing who to notify first? It doesn't seem to be by date applied, it doesn't seem to be by numbers... anyone who got in have a last name near the end of the alphabet, so we can rule out alphabetical order?


My last name starts with W

not sure if this would really be indicative of adcoms caring because applying ED shows stronger interest than writing a few essays

Checking in. Does anyone think more ed acceptance decisions will be released today? This is nerve racking.

Admitted yesterday (splitter, LSAT at 25% and GPA > 75%) and FWIW I did these optional essays:

• Dean Michael A. Fitts has highlighted the core strengths that make Penn Law the best place to
receive a rigorous and engaging legal education: genuine integration with associated disciplines;
transformative, forward-looking faculty scholarship; highly-regarded experiential learning through
urban clinics and our pro bono pledge; innovative, hands-on global engagement; and a manifest
commitment to professional development and collegiality. These are the qualities that define Penn
Law. What defines you? How do your goals and values match Penn Law’s core strengths?
• Describe a time when, as a member of a team, you particularly excelled or were especially frustrated. What was your role within that team? What was the outcome?

I think they care. People with my exact stats have been rejected and i was held. Something other than the numbers must have been different.

You should ask in the Penn 2017 class thread


Has this thread already been started?
