Everyone on TLS being accepted

Postby NanaP » Sat Nov 16, 2013 10:24 am

Just wondering by the lack of dings on TLS so far. Is unusual or is it still too early to tell if schools are accepting almost everyone? I haven't seen anyone report a ding yet, mostly all acceptances or at the very least holds.....

Schools are not accepting almost everyone. It's way too early.

It's early in the cycle, which means schools are jumping at the juicy candidates and not yet denying the more competitive candidates.

If a candidate is borderline, at this point, they'll hold onto their application and see how it compares to the next waves of applications.
If a candidate is above the mean, they'll just accept.

They gain nothing by denying so early, unless the candidate is clearly not fit for their law school.

LSAT logic kicks in

Support: everyone on TLS has been accepted
Conclusion: law school has been accepting everyone/easy to get in

What's wrong:
1. Whoever got in is really competitive candidate - law school is still hard to get into
2. Those who got dinged is not willing to share it on TLS

Ok, now I'm Ready for my Saturday PT!!

That, plus people getting dinged are probably not shouting it to the world on TLS.

Screw that. I'm totally going to announce my rejections, and given some of the schools to which I applied, I should have at least a couple :D.

Hmmmmm, I like this idea...maybe we should start a "Dinged by YLS" thread.

Agree with this....should it be limited to YLS?

Ok I made one for HYS: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=219988

YLS will take too long to reject people, figured expanding it to HYS would be more fun.
