Any updates on FB group size? We were at 249 joined + invited iirc, with an expected cap at 280.

Currently 202 members, 51 invited.


Considering how few they take off the waitlist, it seems like there's another 25 spots left. Good news for those of us still waiting.

Yeah, hopefully it's just those waiting on this board. Hahahaha

So do we think faculty review is complete for all applicants?

My hypo is that no & they're releasing the decisions as fac reviews roll in

What are the odds someone waiting since 1/9 is still in Faculty review? Is it possible we're dinged already, or "held" and waiting to see the makeup of march applicants to see if we'll be dinged/admit/WL??

I think the consensus is if your numbers are good, and you aren't out yet, you may have a good shot. We're all reading tea leaves, though.

Yeah, but my numbers are definitely not Yale level, which is why I'm asking haha. (URM, 3.9 GPA, 16X LSAT)

After a waitlist from H, ding from Penn, and scattered t13 acceptances and silence from Y, S and NYU, I'm not optimistic. I like the theory though, and hope it's true...

Idk, I don't know why they'd be holding anyone who didn't make it to faculty review. I think those that have yet to hear are:

1) In Faculty Review currently
2) Out of faculty review and either a 10/12 (likely waitlist) or 11/12 (likely admit).

The guy/girl above is a 170, 3.9 URM, so stay hopeful!

Thank you :D My pre law advisor basically told me not to apply if I didn't make it over 170, so I've been expecting a ding the entire cycle. I'll be cautiously optimistic about a potential WL

To those who remain, congrats. Looks like we survived the great ding wave of April, and acceptances are beginning their slow trickle again.

Yeah I posted below. My pre law advisor essentially told me applying would be a waste of $$ if I didn't get above a 170, so I've been expecting a ding since January. I wish we knew the estimated time FR took, the 'what if' is keeping me from depositing

If you went complete in January FR is probably done by now.

Yeah, I mean at this point I feel like it's a ding or WL. Auto admit or FR admit I would have heard back by, and ding I (hope) I would have heard back by. Thank you for your added theory though. It's making the wait more bearable knowing there's a bunch of quality apps out there still.

Idk, I could see them waiting until the last minute to admit the 11/12 on faculty review, since they're on the bubble

Asha says in one of her blogs that 12/12 and MOST 11/12 are admits, whereas 10s are waitlisted right?
