It’s TLS terminology - you’ll see plenty of it here especially since this is a very numbers driven board. Just to be clear, a reverse splitter would be someone who is at or above the 75th% for GPA, but below the 25th% for LSAT. You only indicated that you were above the 25th GPA which just makes us assume you’re below median, hence below-average. That being said, you’re also probably going to find a lot of people pushing for you to retake altogether.


Yeah unfortunately the LSAT was never my thing. Studied for over a year and wound up with 71st percentile my second time which doesn't reflect my GPA or involvements. Hoping other components of the app help my chances!!

Hey, I feel this on a deep level. The LSAT is absolutely not my thing, and I do not think that it reflects my potential to do well in law school. Like you I also have a high GPA but a mediocre LSAT. I think these boards just attract people in the 97th percentile which is obviously only the case for the top 3% of testtakers.

I think that would be lovely, but I don't want to get my hopes up too much.

I think you guys can expect acceptances very soon. I just got an e-mail inviting me to apply as a "Boston College Fast Track candidate" and guaranteeing a decision within 10 business days of the date my file goes under review.

also got the invitation too. Already had the app completed but decided I did not want to spend another $100+ on the application. Glad I waited

Do people receiving decisions today mind posting stats (or PMing) for the rest of us?

164 LSAT, 3.09 from a service academy.
URM/4.5 years of active duty military service.
Above average-highly to highly unique softs

Not sure if I will stay on the waitlist. I don’t think I’m going to wait / BC doesn’t cover full tuition for 100% post-9/11 G.I. Bill.

GW's status checker changed to "Decision made" a couple of Fridays ago and didn't send out the decision emails until the following Monday. This is a mean game we're playing.
