NayBoer 172 / 2.7
dpeter2455 170 / 3.56

Also, if you view all NU applicants on LSN, and sort by GPA in ascending order, I currently have the worst GPA of any listed. Same for Cornell, if you exclude URMs.

You beat me. Third and fourth lowest, respectively, excluding URMs.

In- UMich, UVA, Georgetown

Out- UTexas(?)

I wrote "Why?" essays for Mich and UVA

EDIT: and i am ED at Michigan, can't believe i forgot that

Texas appears to be GPA whoring this cycle, don't take it personally.


They've been like this the last couple of years. The only way you have a chance as a splitter at Texas is if you are a resident and even then it's tough.

Gotta say that I love all the tars from The Wire... best show I think I've ever seen; surely it's full of good luck for splitters and non-splitters alike.

169 lsat and 2.9gpa (physics major) woooo. I have no illusions of getting into a great school, my super-reach is U of MN and I applied to a few tier 3 schools hoping to get some cash. I applied almost 5 weeks ago, it'd be nice to get a full ride for christmas!


No need for tier3... im 165 3.0 and ive been offered a scholarship at a tier 2 and got into a tier 1.

169 is way above every t2, so don't worry :)

Chupavida: Did UIUC offer any cash, assuming you're out of state?

p.s. I'm an even more extreme splitter than you. On both ends.

Sweet. Maybe I can apply to UIUC. It would at least give me another option and maybe let me pressure other schools for $.

Fiance got in a GW with $$$ with 2.8/170, so get APPLY TO T1 SCHOOLS!!! She even applied in Feb after the Dec LSAT and got into most schools where she applied (in at WUSL, GW, Davis and all T2). She didn't have any outrageous softs either.

She even got a bidding war between WUSL and GW!

Just do it.

I just got a fortune cookie that read:

"Love or Money, or neither?"

I think I'm boned, metaphorically.

That's not a fortune, that's a vaguely menacing question. WTH?

Sucks, I got a fortune cookie this summer while I was studying for the LSAT (I'm a little superstitious and I still have it) ... "Focus on your long-term goal. Your wish will be granted next year."

I guess I should have know that UVA ED app was a waste, but I was hoping I'd get WLd and let in late in the cycle :?

Nice acceptance, last cycle Minnesota wasn't splitter friendly. I hope that bodes well for me(2.8 176), but they may have just liked your softs and PS.

Looks like Penn is giving out splitter love, the question is how much. :D
