Your cycle is starting to freak me out man.


Yeah, I'm getting pretty disheartened and wondering if there's something terrible about my application that I don't know about. I will admit that I got bad study abroad grades in Buenos Aires, but I took hard classes and hadn't taken Spanish since 11th grade! It didn't affect my UGPA, but the grades are on my college's transcript for some reason.

To clarify my study abroad GPA was a 3.0, but it might look worse to adcoms because the class I got an A in was twice as many credits as the others. Also I have to say that Bai is definitely above me on the chain because I feel better about my scholarship odds (and the idea that maybe Columbia doesn't like me) when I think about how she hasn't gotten her VCE yet either. Also she absolutely makes me feel better about HLS.

Now the freak outs can begin.

I am ambivalent, I know I am screwed either way.

Coolegemex also got dinged, though, and he applied EA; I believe that he got at least two of HYS.

Dinged where? I saw he also got dinged at Yale, if that's what you are referring to. Texas YPed him for sure.
I realized that I ultimately want to remain and practice in NYC, but it seems like NYU/CLS are averse to my application (likely because of my LSAT score).
I already sent in a LOCI & updated transcripts. Do you think it would be inapprorpriate to send in a short letter stating I would withdraw from all other law schools if admitted to NYU/CLS (I would only write this to one of them, of course)?

Don't worry about your application. I just received a ding from Texas that was dated from a few days before I withdrew.

Sorry, I meant to quote CoaltoNewCastle. :oops: He got dinged at Texas, as did coolegemex and myself, so obviously there's a bit of YP going on down there.

I apologize for my laziness, but what does VCE stand for and what is it?

If it's all 3 of you, I think we can say that UT is in fact YP'ing this year, in a very aggressive manner.

Holy crap, gotten can be used legitimately.

I thought it was just another artifact of improper English that became a popular word to use...
