Well I got a 4.0 this semester so my UGPA should go up by a few points. Obviously I'm sending in updated transcripts, but should I email schools to give them a heads up that new grades are on the way? And if so should I do it to only schools that have accepted me, or should I also send it out to schools that I'm still waiting on?

I would absolutely send to schools you’re still waiting on / schools that haven’t awarded scholarships - especially if it puts you over a median or 75th hump.

Liberty University is now saved to my phone contacts, along with a description of what they can do.

I really, really want one of these Liberty calls. I wonder if saying I’m interested in LGBT law student organizations on CRS took me off their list.

Totally agree! If you have the opportunity to be over both 75ths, you should take it!

They haven't contacted me either and I'm trying to remember if there was a place for me to indicate that I'm Jewish...

I'd go ahead and send it to schools that have dinged you as well. Maybe this increase will make them reconsider, especially if it bumps you up a quartile.

They could also be filtering by geographic area. Recall we had to select states in which we were interested.

I don't think I selected any states when given the option but they called me.

True, but a lot of us were interested in schools in Virginia.

Meeeee too... :lol: Would totally feign interest and waste their time with questions about their programs before telling them my gender identity + orientation and asking about LGBT programs....

I am going to be perfectly honest: I did not even bother to google where Liberty is located. (Although I did not select VA and I haven't gotten a call so who knows, it could be a criterion.)

Fair enough. I'm living in SC and from NC, so VA was a pretty natural place to be willing to go to school. Liberty is in the same area code as UVA, which is a big part of how they get folks to answer that initial call, I think.

Carolina splitters represent! (I see from LSN that we've applied at a ton of the same places, so I'm kinda following your cycle.)

I got one of these calls a few weeks ago! Put it this way: I would do a lot for a Klondike bar, but being a black man in a place named Lynchburg is NOT one of them.

I heard this cycle's got an unusually high number of high LSATs. Not to mention that the GRE thing is making the cycle a bit unpredictable, and is scaring some people. But I have literally no sources on anything, so no one quote me on either of those things

How do people get their LSN profiles to be hidden? There is no save button in the settings?
