Finally got my t-shirt e-mail yesterday, after being admitted back in mid-December. And here I thought I was just getting ghosted all along.

This shocks me.

Maybe they're trying to raise GPA? Because I am not a URM and I got in with a much lower LSAT.


Yea, they take in a lot of splitters to maintain the LSAT median and make up for the GPA deficit with reverse splitters. A lot of ppl with slightly below median stats are getting waitlisted.


Maybe the increase in 168s is pushing that hard cutoff on the LSN graph. Compare this cycle's graph to last years cycle and you'll see the line appears to be 167 last cycle.

You definitely need a 168 lsat or a 161+/3.7+



Low 160's, just... JUST below a 3.7. It hurts. Waitlisted. Gotta stop coming to this thread lol

Idk about that. I got in with a mid 150s LSAT and a 3.96 GPA. Not URM, but International. There are a couple other 150s on LSN who got in as well, with high GPAs. This cycle is super weird (thankfully for me lol)

They send an official letter after the initial acceptance email. I think that's all I've received in the mail from them. Scholarship awards are sent via email.

The "t-shirt email" is just them asking your t-shirt size after you're admitted so they can send you a c/o 2020 shirt.

What's everyone wearing to ASW?

I'm thinking dark jeans, nice blouse, heels. Probably a blazer I can take off if I feel too dressy.

I'll probably be wearing the same thing, minus the heels so I don't faceplant in front of everyone lol.

Has anyone's t-shirt actually arrived? I've been waiting for literally like 6 or 8 weeks.


mine has not, but i think someone a few pages back posted that theirs had

Yeah mine finally arrived last week. Was accepted back in December.

Got mine back back in January. It's easily one of my coziest tshirts.

Really want to go to WUSTL but haven't received a scholarship after nearly 4 months of being an admitted student. Think they will play ball with 144k from Emory?

I've been "application documents received" since 12/20. I just looked at the "what to expect" thread that said this usually changes to "complete" after a few weeks.

Is 2+ months at "application documents received" normal around here or should I give admissions a call?

Sorry about the WL. I'm headed there too I think. They don't appreciate my 167 from what I can gather. But thanks for the response.

What are your stats if you don't mind me asking? I have also been at "application documents received" since 1/9 and haven't heard a peep yet. I am just below both medians. Getting a little anxious!

Just below LSAT median. Between 25 and Median on GPA. Same name for LSN if you want more info.

They really don't seem to like low lsats this cycle. If you look at the LSN graph you'll see a steady line of 168, regardless of GPA. I think the only reason I snuck in with a 166 is my high gpa.
