No doubt each ding wave will come as she rides the chairlift. Maybe if she gets a particularly excellent run she'll send out a few WLs.

155 members, 42 invites, 1 admin.


PotterOtter = MVP of this thread.

So, that is roughly 198 members. Earlier, it was estimated that ~20 of those in the group were deferrals/current students/faculty/etc. Overall, 178/~260 offers have been given then? ~88 offers left?

oh damn, pretty legit!

tbf, this thread just isn't made for sustaining that kind of enthusiasm and participation. over here it's more like.... existential dread and sporadic latin. appropriate, i think.

I recieved my LSAT 175+ on Feb 28th 6:30 pm and I thought the deadline was midnight(they extended it a few days). I proceeded to write the Yale 250 in 5+ hours, I hadn't applied previously as I was working off a Lower score that wouldn't give me a shot.
Checking in and wish me luck!

Did you apply to other schools? What an epic story this would be:

"I only applied to one law school, YLS, and I put together my application in five hours. I'n now a 1L at YLS."

I applied to a bunch of reach schools with my 166-170 Dec score but didn't dare to dream Yale... it probably was less nerve wracking to not have to pore over the 250 for three months ..

I also gave a lecture at an event at 930 that evening so it was application construction until the speech and then editing it in my car until midnight... insane

It'd be awesome if the I-can't-overthink-this spontaneity of your thought process produced an unbeatable 250. Maybe that's the secret?
