Good luck with other schools.
Does your status still say "application complete?"
Can I ask when you submitted everything ?


Thanks for the G/L!

My application status still says "Application Complete"
I submitted on 10/28 and went complete on 11/25.

I am glad that I had already read about the pamphlet on this board so I knew what to expect... Still, a little piece of me was like "Maybe?" But no. Just the pamphlet. I only went complete on 1/22 so I think I will have a while to wait...

Well I was wrong, it was a very nicely written rejection.


Sorry to hear... your GPA is excellent. What was your major? My GPA is a very mediocre 3.40, but I'm wondering if the biochemistry major will help. I've seen very few science majors on these forums. I'd venture that no more than 10% of the applicants are in the biological sciences.

I think your major will help. I was a social science major, but I don't think it will discount my GPA because of the rigor of my Core requirements. I think it's just my LSAT that's getting in the way. Which was expected.

The rejection letter said something like: Many of the people rejected have very successful law school careers. If you find yourself succeeding, please consider us for transferring.

To me it sounded like: We think you might be smart, but we want to let someone else take the risk of accepting you. If we were wrong, we'll take it back. haha

Well, I got a big envelope from the admissions department today... and a small-sized pamphlet of Practical Skills Info. I now share everyone else's ire.

Sorry to hear about that, veritas. When you kick ass next year, send them a letter, not to transfer, just to show them that they fucked up.

L&C seems to be weird about admissions... The numbers are not everything to them... I knew one person that was rejected with a 161 and one person that was accepted with a 157 last year with the same GPA... who knows what they are looking for...

Admissions told me that they weight GPA more heavily than LSAT... So also something to take into account... All I'm saying is that they seem to be a bit wacky…

I will agree that there is something wacky about them. Their scholarship money is not obvious to figure out either. It clearly is not based solely on index numbers simply by looking at LSN.

I do not mean bad when I say wacky. I am sure there is a good reason for what they do. It may have to do with diversity.

I wonder what was wrong with my application then, if this is true. I would of thought I could of gotten a PT WL, at least. But I got some other unexpected WL.

Maybe I wasn't "progressive" enough for them.

It looks like there have been a couple rejections and a couple acceptances today... Both the acceptances were from people who sent in their apps in early October however...

Arguing in favor of racial superiority and against environmental regulation probably didn't win you too many points.

Well, now I'm just hoping I get the practical skills packet as opposed to nothing. It'll be bittersweet, I think.

I received the Practical Skills packet too, but since I just went complete I didn't expect a decision.
