Good job on UIUC. If you want to stay in Chicago, that is a pretty tempting offer.

Very tempting, indeed. I'm not going to let myself stress about decisions until I hear back from more schools, but UIUC definitely just got a lot higher on my list...

I'm not a big splitter but I'm not getting much love from schools- 3.2x and 166.

In: CU
WL: Minnesota (from EA)
Out: Cornell EA and Michigan (no surprises there!)
Still waiting for: BU, BC, UWash, Wisc, WUSTL, W&M, Vandy, Emory, Texas

Most schools I was complete by the beginning of Dec. so I'm getting antsy!

Update: In at BC, out at Texas over the weekend!

Unless you are looking for money at these schools fuck that. Apply to CCN, MVPNCG only. If you don't get it try again next year early in the cycle.

So how do we poor, unfortunate splitters fare when it comes to getting off of wait lists? My 3.0/176 hasn't pulled through for me in the way I hoped it would (WL at UVA, UCLA, Vandy), and while I'm very happy with my WUSTL acceptance, I would like to get off of at least one of those waitlists.

It really depends on if schools need to secure their median LSAT come may or june.

Subtle anti-Duke trolling? I understand why Boalt was left out this time.

The Dookies like GPAs too, although they might be willing to suck it up for a 177+

I know this is not usually considered a splitter GPA, but how are people with a 3.4-3.5 doing at CCNMVP so far this cycle? (if there are any of you out there).


I sure feel like a splitter compared to all the 3.8+ people out there with LSAT scores similar to mine... :|

N is showing some splitter love. Still waiting to hear back from the rest (but care most about C&C at this point).

They're only splitter friendly earlier. Also you need 173+ LSAT and a 3.1 minimum GPA

So if I've been "under review" since November 9th should just give up?

No there was a 3.0 (with rounding) lower limit even with ED.

Bigtime splitter, haven't come across this thread before...

173 / 2.9, out of school for 5 years with solid work experience, currently working on a Masters with a 3.8 GPA
applied in early January to accommodate new grades and LORs...

Harvard - i'm an optimist :)
Columbia - fee waiver, why not
G'town
BC
BU
NUSL

The pool is a little limited, I'm tied to the northeast.
The wait is KILLING me!!\

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!

Wow, you are made for Northwestern. Sucks you're tied to the NE. I don't know what NUSL is, but you're best shot is going to be GULC off the waitlist. Don't they have an extended ED option like UVA? I'd try that if I were you.

Yeah, I'm a New Englander through and through, I'm really hoping to be in Boston, BC would be amazing! NUSL is northeastern, and GULC does have an extended ED, but I'm not fully ready to commit to DC yet...though it would be tough to turn down...
