Those might not be blow-you-out-of-the-water softs for, say, Yale, but they're damn good softs, I think.

Congratulations. It's really cool to see someone get their absolute first choice, especially after having serious doubts about getting accepted.


+100000. Congrats. It's good to see someone's dreams come true.

Ha! Actually, that 176 is my second score. My first is 163, and I've been worried that the lower first score will keep me out of HYS. It's heartening to see that Crackberry got in with two scores.

Thanks for the well-wishes guys. I really appreciate it. I'm not sure what else to say, but for the countless and invaluable pieces of advice I've gotten from you guys, I sincerely thank you.

Same. I have a 163 first score as well. Glad to see some multiple-LSATers get JR1's and SLS acceptances. Crackberry is the current MVP of my law school e-friends.

Congrats, everyone!

Congrats to everyone! Crackberry, congrats to you! I know how much this means to ya.

I applied a month after you all, so hopefully since they're going in order of apps received... I hope it won't be long! Maybe I'll get to join you next year :D

I just want to BE Crackberry...

But seriously Crack you're definitely one of the most helpful posters on TLS. Too bad unless a miracle happens we won't be attending the same school.

Next, a to-do list for you:

1. Withdraw from Berkeley and free up a spot for us
2. Withdraw from Harvard so I have an additional 0.0001% chance of getting a JR1.
3. Withdraw from UCLA and free up da money!
4. Withdraw from USC so others might actually have a shot at the Rothman scholarship

The list goes on, but I guess this would be a good start. :)

Consider 1, 3 and 4 already done. I may stay in at Harvard (and Yale, if I ever decide to apply, which, admittedly looks unlikely at this point) just to see what happens.

You're awesome crackberry :) unlike the douche who posted a while back that got accepted ED and didn't want to withdraw his apps...or managamy if hes still hanging on to the full scholarship at ucla :P yeah I'm lookin at you managamy

Given my experiences at Stanford and Harvard, I am convinced that not a single law school averages multiple LSAT scores. My average is 165. Even my high score (169) isn't that high (by TLS standards) but it gets me in the door. If top schools averaged, I don't think I'd even be in the discussion.

I hope you're right! My top score is 169 too... you give me hope :)

Congratulations to everyone accepted so far. A Stanford acceptance is always incredible as there are no auto-admit numbers for Stanford.

Wow already got the SLS admission packet (I do live in SF so it's not THAT surprising I guess). There's a ton of stuff in it, including a tee shirt (they got my size right too) and a big folder with lots of info.

Haha thanks. Yeah I got the call at 9:35 PST and the admission packet at about 11:00 PST. She said they mailed it yesterday and I guess I'm only 35 miles away.

I know someone who got a 160 on his first LSAT and then a 171. He got in off the WL last year. I really don't think they average.
