I am a 168 IR. had 2 IR dates the latest one being near end of February.

also 168+ and good GPA might mean they may go to other schools. while lower the matriculating %? it may be YP.


yeah i cant imagine we get let in before 3.5+ and 168+s and theres a lot of those who are still pending on LSN....

That being said, there are prob just as many sub 3.3 sub 168s who are still pending, and I would assume we would be in before them, so maybe we cant really read into anything just yet

Oh, if you were high gpa, I'd say that confirms we are a reject batch. But since no, and you've been ir a while, looks like anything is possible. Guess a few days and we'll know

Though there's at least 1 in this batch said they are at like 25% lsat I think


That'd be me. :) I'm also going to have to say the 3/5 DF-ers are dings. I'm an optimistic person but I'm not stupidly optimistic.

A lot of the acceptances made in march last year ended up withdrawing. 168+/3.5+

also 168+/3.5+ gets you into UCLA (at least last year) and with hefty scholarships to boot. the lower end T14's would also take those candidates as well.

I'm still IR 168 3.5, which makes me think this may be a ding pile for those with the higher range LSATs with a GPA below a 3.5, otherwise I figure they would have added me in, I'm nothing special...I think here's the question that needs to be asked:

Is there anyone who went DF who has a 3.5 or above...and if you do, do you have an LSAT above a 167? For those that provided scores, I haven't seen anyone DF with those stats yet.

hmmm well that is strange. when did you go IR and has that IR date changed at least once?

also if this is a reject pile, why am i not included? I applied in Oct so its not like i'm late. I also went into IR at the same time as one of the other 3/5DR.

there are a lot of 167/3.5+GPA accepted on LSN this year.

example of yield protect for USC, and why they would skip to splitters.

this raises another sort of point, i think everyone who is DF'd today, didnt get into UCLA and USC would be their highest ranked acceptance. So even if it isnt purely numbers based, the DFs havent put together an application that has earned them an acceptance this high. This also points to dings

maybe they really like your app final...

(btw, thanks for the unrelenting optimism, its made me happy all day)

Applied in early Jan, don't remember when I went complete, went under review for the first time on 2/12 and am stuck on that date. I am in so far at Michigan, Vandy, WUSTL, UIUC, and George Mason. A list of all the schools I applied to is in my profile.

both those guys that just posted who are still in review with great numbers have both been accepted to HIGHER ranked schools. One UCLA the other Michigan. Maybe USC knew this would happen, so they are holding on to it thinking they might withdraw first so it won't hurt USC's marticulating rate.

while the DR's today, they probably know USC will be the highest school that will accept them, and is fairly confident they will attend.

To USC: i would have attended... and still would. just to let you guys know.

So with these 168/3.5s still ir, sounds clearly dingy to me. Well, uci is less than half the price anyway...

As a note I'm wl at ucla, so a ding here at a lower number school shows there is more than #s

I went IR fairly recently, I think someone else went IR same date as me. My date hasn't changed, but that doesn't seem to be a requirement for going DR this time around.

And I know there are lot of 167 3.5+ accepted...read my post again. I was trying to ascertain whether there were any 167+ 3.5+ who went IR this latest batch of DFs.

both Irvine and UCLA had higher medians than USC.... one WLed you and one Accepted you. it would be strange for USC to straight out reject you.

but this will be it for me for today guys. tell me how it all goes. if not in this thread then PM me please. don't give up until the fat lady sings.

Loving the optimism, final! :)

Will someone just call USC and plead with them to share their result? Not it. ;)

App complete end of Jan. went IR 2/27 or so. DF 3/5

if a miracle is happening, it'd be an acceptance.

USC, you're my #1.

what are your stats? if not specifics, are you a splitter, reverse splitter, and above, below or at 25/50/75%?

you went into DF pretty damn quick.

Thanks, if that slightly higher GPA is 3.4 or better, that is their seeming cutoff from last year, so that could be a difference. In any case, from last year it doesn't really look like they do theme batches come March, sort of a mix of accept/reject.
