May not be going to LS at all, this is my 2nd app cycle, just can't seem to get into any good CA schools..
Pretty frustrating considering all the effort put in and being a non-trad with some decent softs.. I know I'm not alone in this thread at all, not feeling great about LS admissions right now
if you have borderline GPA, and an LSAT that isn't 166 or lower, you should have a good shot. if its 166 then yea... huge wall there. what do you mean 'decent' LSAT for USC? thats 167 or higher and apparently 166 and lower is a crap shoot for USC.

I wish I would have done a bit better in UG but things happen and I wasn't very mature either, my main goal was simply getting a BA with a 3.0 or better so I could get a decent job.
The job market practically commands you to go to a top school, especially for non-trads who have more to lose, so the scholarships at T30's etc, are less appealing if you know that maybe 30% of those students have jobs..

Wow. I'm surprised that they're changing their stance on how candidates can be informed of their decision. Maybe they recognize the lateness of the cycle and are just trying to be kind to those who might still be holding a candle out for USC despite offers from elsewhere.
