I think anxiety is high everywhere right now. I'm just most anxious here because a yes to my ED app is literally the law school decision maker.

Also I have no patience.


Was just talking about this - I'm geared up to ride the process through to March/April, negotiate for scholarships, visit schools, go to ASW's, what have you; but if I get a call next week/a couple weeks it all just stops - in a really good way and I'd be super excited, but still a really fast change.

Either way, I have upcoming finals to occupy my concern at the moment... this is also my last semester of undergrad (3 1/2 years), but I'm just hanging around working a couple jobs (constructive ones, not retail/service at least - not that those are bad) in my college town and taking a break from stress. Doesn't really feel like a culmination of my college career or anything at this point lol.

I hope we meet at an ASW and somehow figure out who we all are. These are the things I think about to pass time.

Tbh, we should all put the TLS times behind us.... This forum holds some of my darkest days.... lol...

I wonder how credible it would be if someone acts like they don't know what this is...

Probably fairly credible. I feel like TLS over represents over achievers and the over anxious/curious.

Yeah, it overrepresents the upper-percentile test takers. Most TLS folks get in the 160s or higher, which is above avg.

Just found people on LSN who were accepted ED pretty close to 12/21. This makes me feel better about waiting. Stress levels decreased.

One more work day...

Sorry if this is the improper forum, I've tried searching others and found nothing. Thank you!


A lot of the anxiety in this thread stems from the fact that the answer to this question is very unclear.

This, completely

There have been so few ED people who've posted on LSN or TLS that the sample size is too small to really say with confidence. It seems that being above one or both 75ths is necessary but I think there has been exceptions to this rule before (especially for URMs) so that still doesn't give us too much help.

Mostly, you submit your app and hope for the best. Then make friend on TLS so you have people to complain to that won't make fun of you for being neurotic.
