yup, w&m waitlisted me. or maybe rejected? I don't even know. BU also waitlisted me... W&L gave me money....


yea, I have had good offers so far from schools. I know that they aren't quite as highly ranked ranked as USC but i think it would be absurd to all of the sudden reject me when i am one point below median for LSAT and ever so slightly above median for gpa. I feel like i would have at least gotten a waitlist. then again, i also felt like i would have found out much earlier considering i sent in my app during october. jerks. lol


you might be accepted. so who knows. but that 166 barrier is a big deal to USC. one more point...

sibley has a 170 LSAT so you never know and she went same DF as you. usually (not always) the batches are all the same decisions.

In review for about 10 weeks and it's killing me! I'd like to coordinate my law school visits so it'd be nice if they would get back to me so I can buy tickets and decide if LA is on the itinerary.

It seems silly to have such a stark barrier at 166, given that we're talking about median LSATs and not mean LSATs. Their median will still be 167 if they let in a few 166s (in addition to the URM acceptances). Best of luck to those who went DF today!!

maybe they're trying to raise their medians? or their 25% number?

i think they need splitters one way or another and have so far either rejected or waitlisted them all. im rooting for you. maybe you can take solace in the fact that i wasn't part of the DF group with my low stats....

Not SC worthy. 3.6/163. I'm sure it's a rejection.

Possibly. It would be hilarious if their 25/50/75 were all 167!

This is NOT looking good, everyone here that went DF has a below 3.5 GPA and sup par LSAT (mine is 169, but in general, you all have 167 and below).

We're fucked!!!

Just from experience, when I get dinged at Georgetown, I was DF right exactly when 4 others who got dinged with me were:(.

I hope I'm wrong, but oh well.

its not over until the fat lady sings, or in this case brings the mail. they need splitters and reverse splitters as well as needing people who have under median LSAT. their 25% was not 167 so have hope!

but i just don't get it. the 2 splitters with 170LSAT has higher LSAT and GPA than me, and i have no DF yet!!! seriously wtf. i applied in oct and been in review since mid-janurary. this is ludicrous. maybe you guys are an acceptance batch which would make sense on why im still waiting.
