Mylsn.info showed that I had around a 75% chance getting in, but I didn't take into account submitting a late app. When I update the settings to only show candidates who submitted in December/January I have a 50/50 chance. This sucks, didn't realize the there's a huge disadvantage to submitting apps past November. The data doesn't lie.
Anyway, at the time, someone advised me not to write a "why Georgetown", saying that I should save my reasons for a LOCI if waitlisted. I'm beginning to think that was a mistake. Would it be okay to submit a "why Georgetown" after I already submitted my app? Or is it best to just wait and see what happens? I'd rather do everything I can possibly do to increase my chance of an acceptance than have to worry about fighting my way off a waitlist. Can anyone advise, would really appreciate it. Thanks!
but the data doesn't take into account the big drop in high scoring applicants compared to this time last cycle.
How big of a drop are we talking?
I forget the exact numbers, but it was a good enough drop to seem promising for people with the scores they're looking for.. However, we still don't know what the Dec. LSAT scores look like. But also, I think the drop in high scoring applicants might be good news for splitters but not so good news for candidates who don't have a score in that range that's been dropping or the high GPA.
Thanks, you're always really helpful. Would you suggest I write a "why x"? See post above.
