Just for shits and giggles, how soonish do people find out about their fates at t14s if they submit early January and are at above 75th%s? Super generally asking whether there’s a decision by end of April.

Nvm answered my dumb question by plugging in stats on lawschoolnumbers - there was maybe one or two people but seemed to be a turn around time of about two months. I know this is premature but trying to figure out when to quit job, plan vacation, etc for next summer.

Any thoughts?

I listed my "institution GPA" since it's slightly higher than my LSAC GPA, but I made sure it was explicitly stated exactly which GPA it was. I've read about some people getting into hot water by presenting their major GPA/institutional GPA without explanation.

I did the same. I think I phrased it as my "Final University GPA"

The really egregious offense is estimating your LSAC gpa and using that number in correspondence

Got my first acceptance tonight, from my state school. It feels good to have an option, and to get an acceptance as my first response.

I plan on submitting my first application early next week. :shock: Is it now or 1L that the existential crisis starts? Asking for a friend.

I’m conflicted - I recently made my profile private on mylsn just because I already had a friend figure out who I was :oops: I planned on making it public for a data point in the late spring, but not sure about during the cycle

I'm doing the same FWIW. I think it's totally fair to input your results to improve mylsn for future generations, but keep it private for now. It's not like your results will help anyone in the current cycle anyways.

Crap. I did this because I wasn't able to purchase CAS until last Wednesday. I'd emailed schools asking for a fee waiver, thinking it couldn't be that different, but my LSAC GPA was a good .09 points lower than my final institutional GPA. :/ should I do something to rectify this?

So you used your actual undergrad gpa and didn't try to represent it as your lsac gpa? If so, you should be fine

If literally any one of my LOR writers would upload the letter that would be great, wish I could be applying today but that does not look like great option without letters.

Non-chronological PS (and likely some grammar issues)

LSAC doing it's nightly crash. Honestly the only plus to the GRE I see is that it might force LSAC to stop being such a trash organization.

I am trying to get all my apps out by November 1, but I still have to craft a new PS, and I have no idea what to write about.

Also one of my schools I'm applying to requests a submission letter from the Dean of my undergrad re: misconduct??

Gonna feel real stupid to request this from the Dean over a minor dorm noise complaint that went on my record.
