I also submitted 2/1 (ug so late), and am stuck in CR2. Hating this wait. Looks like I have the same stats as mydasmarie.

Hey guys, checking in now. Applied late in the cycle (2/1) but only went complete 3/4 due to February LSAT, which I retook on a whim. I know my odds might be long, but what do you guys think of the chances for someone < 25th GPA (with some extenuating circumstances that help explain) but > 75th LSAT.

Life as a super splitter sucks.

Anything is possible with declining apps. Good luck!

What's the usual turn around time for those under 2nd review? I went from complete to second review after about a month and a half and been stuck there since.

Whaaaaaat? Aren't they interviewing next week?


This is what I came here to ask about. I never heard, so assumed I wasn't selected, but wondered about the lack of confirmation...

What's the deal with the drop to #20? Especially significant since UCLA went up. Does the greater disparity hurt job prospects?

Personally, I dont think this will change anything in the job prospects. Most employers won't read the us news rankings and they probably regard schools based on their reputations. But only my thoughts.

They got hit because they refused to beef up their median GPA at the expense of the LSAT 25th.. That's basically it. It's probably a one year thing as WUSTL.

Those who have already gotten decisions, how long did you sit in Final Review?

USC is fading fast. Better start thinking about McGeorge.

Which ranking are you referencing? Did the USN rankings get leaked?

No. Rankings mean nothing.

If anything just look at Emory and how many school funded jobs stack against them.

USC, employment wise, is on par with LA. That's the bott
Line.

They mean something.. But this is a one year thing, USC will go past Emory,WUSTL easily next year.
