So I'm not looking at the same time frame as you at all.


what are your numbers? it seems like the people who have been waiting a long time have "reject" numbers but are non-traditional.


I have been waiting a long time, but I don't have reject numbers. My GPA is above median and my LSAT is well-above 75th.


You're not alone. I've been IR for almost two months with both numbers at or above 75th. I'm pretty hopeless now, but who knows?

Sweet! I went Complete 1/14. Hopefully I will go IR soon! I just had to send out seat deposits for two schools because I am still in the dark on USC and IU Bloomington... IU at least sent me a letter telling me to expect delays due to high application volumes.

you may as well stay in the running. doesn't hurt you any, and oftentimes when people withdraw they end up with decisions anyway...


i got an email confirming that they would withdraw my app.. i don't plan on going to usc anyway (already got into my top choice where i'd much rather go to), so i figure might as well withdraw.

For the love of God, I am still complete from October. It's one thing for NYU to do this to me - they don't even have a checker, so I could've been looked at multiple times. But I know you haven't even considered me in even the most meaningless way yet.

I have to make money decisions at some schools with April deadlines, so I'm going to have to just withdraw pretty soon if there's no action...

well they have rejected the people they already wanted to, but i guess not going into review yet would mean you weren't considered yet.

I was complete for about 12 weeks before going into my first review so its not too bad. but i've been in review for another 10-12 weeks or so without any decision... i have auto reject numbers pretty much except my 168 LSAT so i don't know what they're doing... they have rejected so many better splitters than me already...

+1, still complete 10/22. 166 plus high GPA is still pretty much a DMZ on the LSN graph.

de-militarized zone. he was just joking that a line exists between 166/167 (167 being the median of USC) that can't be crossed. its true though...

I'm a splitter, but it's not like my GPA is awful. I believe I still beat their 25th (and really have no idea what the median is). And I'm a native son, which you'd think would help somewhat in at least getting a peek.

Haha, no. It just means my family and growing up were all relatively local even if I currently live elsewhere, which I thought would take care of any concerns they might have that I might not attend just because of location.

i think being from CA does give you a little advantage but numbers wise not so much. as long as you have over a 168 i don't think it matters how high your LSAT is to USC. since their 75% was 167 last year, if they want to increase it 180 would be the same thing as 168.

but since your GPA is over the 25% and you're from CA, maybe they're holding to you to see if they need LSAT splitters just like a lot of us. (you should get accepted over me though, but that's not saying much since i'll get rejected)

In review today.
App sent in 1/05. Complete 3/05 or so... February LSAT :|

173/3.2 - Fingers are crossed but I know a waitlist is inevitable... even though my LOR is from a USC law alum.

I wonder what their method or reasoning is to this going IR business.... I have same #s and applied around the same time, still "Complete 1/26" for me though.
