It's been pretty unfavorable TOWARDS ME!!!!! lol. Just kidding. It's really just the T14 being hard to break into for me. T15-T25 has been very receptive lol.


URM cycles are so weird sometimes. I see URMs with very pedestrian numbers that absolutely crush it and then there are ones that don't seem like they got much of a boost.


yeah, I agree. Like I said, T15-25 are showing me love and it's nice but T14s are more like "Meh" or "No" or "Yeah, okay, if you're willing to foot this bill yourself [I'm not]"


I want to agree with what y'all are saying but I have some great acceptances but only one school that I haven't already decided against has given me final FinAid and it is not a good amount. 288k upon repayment is a cruel consideration IMO.

MAYBE IF I COULD GET SOME $$$ I'd be less PISSED/Anxious/perpetually nauseated.


Yeah, when I'm saying these things, I'm including the money consideration in whether or not my cycle is going well lol

This just doesn't seem right. They should all welcome you with open arms lol.

If we add in my anecdotal holds from Chicago and Columbia to your anecdotal evidence, I think we have clear, undeniable proof that high LSAT scores are, in fact, a detriment to T6 admissions. This is truly groundbreaking research and I'm proud to contribute to it.

There is only one thing to do: wait 6 years and then retake for 150.

My rejection at Chicago supports your thesis. I hope you'll offer me a coauthor credit on this.

My WL at Chicago supports your thesis. I hope you'll offer me a coauthor credit on this.


Same. WL at Chicago and GULC of all places?! W/e.

That's about a wrap. Yet another week has ended and I still have no admissions offers. Does anyone know if admissions committees are likely to be working this upcoming Monday (given that it's President's Day)? I don't want to spend another 3 days just waiting before I can start getting my hopes up again.

I don't really consider President's Day a huge holiday, but who knows. I'd just assume they don't, then you can be pleasantly surprised if they do lol

I've been waitlisted at schools I had a 100, 88, and 81% chance of being accepted into.

Sigh.

Clearly these FAKE law schools are discriminating against FSU kids. SAD!

Not really my experience, but ITT this cycle is like:

School A: This applicant's numbers are good enough to get into School B this year. We'd usually let them in with $$$, but there's no way they'll matriculate. Man, too bad. YP.
School B: Yah, nah.

Another fucking waitlist.

3 in one week. The latest one (Gtown) had me at an 82% chance of getting in as well.

Oof, I'm sorry man. Like any application, you'll only end up at one school, so all it takes is one. I know it probably stings, but if everyone from here on out straight denies you, you'll still have an acceptance to UVA 8)

I read all of your posts in Sean Connery's 007 voice. It's great.
