Do these numbers qualify as "splitters"? I thought splitters were more like me.

yea i don't really agree that he's a splitter either... should at least a 3.3 or lower GPA... or at least 25% GPA or lower to be considered a splitter...

to save me reading through this thread:

Has anyone lived in the area around USC? Is it like an episode of gangland or is it a reasonable place for a white twenty something to live? How far from the active parts of the city is? What is the COL like?

Obviously I will do my own research but I would appreciate some insight from those who have been to the area/go to law school there.

Well, I just found out on 2/22, and when I checked earlier today it still listed me as complete. It now says I went IR on 2/19. I went complete in mid-December.

Do you definitely want to go there? Given your other acceptances?

If you were holding out for a Rothman, I'd say at this point that's probably out.

Maybe they opted to do some clear-cut YPing rather than let you in without the Rothman?

This guy. Mentioned it a little earlier (on this page). Same/similar situation. I am ever so slightly below their median GPA (3.5X).

doesn't that mean your LSAT is below median? since USC's median and 75% lsat = 167?

In, by snail mail in a really thin small envelope. Complete 12/10, IR 2/16 (but I didn't check it compulsively until recently so may have changed before?), DF 2/17. Letter dated 2/18.

I'd say definitely a YP. Send a LOCI and hopefully you'll hear back really soon, I've heard of cases where someone was accepted a few days after a LOCI.

Goodluck everyone!

Same. Lower numbers but not by much.
