Basically same here again, GPA well above 75th and LSAT 1 point below median. At least comforting to know other people with similar stats haven't gotten it yet either.

Young K-JD, I just really hope I don't become http://lawschoolnumbers.com/Proud2B19 2.0

Reapplicant here! Don't worry too much about not getting a JS1 immediately after going complete. My interval from last cycle: complete 12/7, JS1 invite 12/20. I'm pretty sure other folks waited longer than that.

3.95/171 with advanced degrees and nothing here either. I think there's just no rhyme or reason (or they are just hitting the crazy high LSAT scores first). Also that person was like 12 and clearly isn't you.

By which I mean to say - congrats to all for both your JS1s and your numbers! But the rest of us can probably take a deep breath :D


I'm not panicking yet. Everyone seems to have a killer LSAT.


Sometimes I take a break and just go hide in the other threads where we have killer LSATs.

+2. Sob sob sob.


It's all good. You guys have killer GPAs and your day will come too. Maybe a bit later than it did for the 175+ crowd, but it will.


I really, really, really appreciate this perspective and the kind words. Thank you.

As a 3.5/177, not really feeling any better... my odds were pretty slim in the first place though.

Not as slim as my 3.61/172! But hey, who knows? Here's to hoping!

I am lowkey desperately hoping that a 180 carries a lot more weight than my below 25 GPA (I was a quant major. Life is hard.)

My LSAT isn't particularly high either (171) & not a URM, but I have an interesting background. Finished JS1 interview this week! You've got this!!

Mindlessly refreshing the status page even though I know I'll get an email notification. Ugh.

Has anyone who submitted in November gone complete yet?

I submitted on the 7th and went complete yesterday. But it's fine to take longer

How did people feel about their interviews? Mine felt much less personal than the one I did with Chicago and was about half the length. Is that typical?

I felt mine went well, but yes chicago was much longer and more personal. I enjoyed chicago more.

Will submit this tonight or tomorrow morning. Going to proofread this one a bit more thoroughly than the other apps :lol:.
Probably won't get in unless I increase my LSAT by at least a point or two. Right now I think best case scenario is I ride the waitlist until I get dinged or book an August Boltbus to Boston.

Congrats on the JS1! May the JS2 follow shortly.
For the sake of renewed hope, I'm going to pretend we're somewhat similar (171, (mildly) interesting background) and ignore the fact that your 4.13 GPA is not quite the same as my no GPA.
