I'm feeling like many--probably most--of us will end up on a waitlist. That's just a guess, though.
Another high stat hold without a JR1?
Urgg... I think this week is the week my hopes finally died. I've got decent stats but such a boring background, I'd consider it a miracle if I got the JR1 now.
If it makes you feel any better, Sogui, that LSAT score in my profile is a retake. (And it's 13 points higher than my first score.) If you read through the dozens of pages in this thread, you'll find that many of the ostensibly surprising holds are for people who had a low first LSAT score. I doubt that HLS strictly averages the scores, but it seems clear to me that they take a lower first score into account.
IIRC, your excellent LSAT score was from your first try. That favorably distinguishes you from some of us. Good luck!
