Anyone else above both 75ths ain't heard back yet? Is this YP or is there something fatally wrong with my app?

When did you go complete? And did you write a programmatic contribution or why essay?

Complete 9/9. And I wrote a programmatic contribution (albeit a very brief one) and no why essay. Not a Cali resident, if that matters.

Impossible to know. Could be anything from a typo in your application to the adcom in charge of reviewing your pile has the flu.

Probably a YP since you didn't write a why UCLA and are from out of state. Don't blame you though, I wouldn't write a why UCLA either lol.

Me! Complete on 11/29. No programmatic contribution essay, no why UCLA, so I can't say I'm flabbergasted. Am CA resident though.

Can anyone who interviewed tell me a bit more about the kind of questions one might expect? Are they just standard Why x and resume stuff or something else?

- Why law school?
- Why UCLA?
- (since I'm not a student) What have you been doing since graduation and what is your job?
- Question about something on my resume (mine was "What's the biggest problem facing immigration attorneys?")

and I think that's it.

Edit: Also are you ED? I'm trying to figure out when they're going to contact ED applicants who were interviewed...

Thanks, that's helpful! No, I'm RD. Guess they want to clarify something about my app hence the interview..

Literally same. If your LSAT is below median like mine is, I think we are going to end up waiting until December scores are in for our decisions.

Glad it helps! My interview was with Danea and she seemed pretty chill. You should be fine with yours!

Also apparently I'm spoiled from every other interview I've taken when normally you hear back within at least a week..

I'm barely under median LSAT but over 75th gpa and was accepted weeks ago. Not sure if that counts as a reverse splitter.
