Leaning towards Michigan (top choice right now), Harvard, and Duke. Will visit the first two next week, even thought they said that visiting doesn't help. I've been sending monthly LOCIs religiously to each school. I think that's what got me off the waitlist at UCLA.

What exactly did you include in your monthly LOCIs? Did you space out updates or program interests amongst the documents? Your method sounds really intriguing.

I talked about specific strengths of each school as related to my field. Then I gave them updates about what I'm doing at my current job, a language course I'm taking, and some other opportunities. I said that I could provide a LOR from any instructor they chose from my transcript or from any administrative staff they chose (dean, provost, etc). I retook the LSAT and talked about that. I was very honest about whether I would give up $ at other schools so I could attend their school (I would at HLS, Mich, and Duke). Those are the only letters where I said that I'd definitely attend if offered a place.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you want me to share a LOCI with you via PM :)

I'm assuming you're a reverse splitter?

Excuse the ignorance, but doesn't the LSAC service put grades on a 4.0 scale? How did you apply with >4.0 GPA?

Nope, their highest is 4.33, since they take A+ into account. My college didn't, so that's why I had a 4.0 UG GPA and a 4.14 LSDAS.
