3.4, 169. Not a supreme splitter here, but who knows. God I hope USC isn't batching this one and was just sending out decisions in general.

He never showed us any e-mail or anything, he just made a random comments. Its possible that USC sent out some acceptances.

They were my first choice, but with these admissions practices I'm starting to wonder what USC will be ranked in 3 years. This has to be the most idiotic admissions strategy available. If my GPA was 0.06 higher, and my LSAT 2 points lower, I'd have been an auto admit with a probable scholarship offer.


I don't know about that. I know that you said "probable" and not "certain," but not everyone with a 3.6 and a 167 has a scholarship offer. I was accepted (DF 3/9) with a 3.64 and a 167, but I received a letter on Tuesday informing me that I could go to Hell and pay sticker. USC was everything I wished for, and because I wasn't careful, I got it. All $210k of it. Just because you "should" have been accepted does not by any stretch mean that the university would have sent you a check, or that it even would have been likely to.

I will admit that your auto-admit theory--based on LSN, I presume--could be correct: I went DF on 3/9 after going IR on 2/24. Of course, my personal belief is that I am a beautiful and unique snowflake with a fantastic PS and LORs. But after seeing the horror that is the graph on LSN, I know that's probably not true.

I was a DF 3/9er, accepted with 3.4/169. Sent in my USC financial aid app immediately, and got a letter today saying no scholarship or need-based grant aid, stay tuned for your loans letter. For the record, I made $23k last year so I'm not exactly sure who they consider to have "need," but whatever.

If I want $200k in loans, I'll go to GW. Still keeping my fingers crossed for any $$ from BU.

That half-tuition scholly from W&M is looking mighty good right now...

Hey did anyone receive confirmation they were put on the wl? The letter they sent states that they had to have our response by March 30th and I'm getting a little nervous lol.

Under review 3/31. Yay! The fact that I have made it roughly 48 hours without being told to kindly take my sorry ass elsewhere is more than enough. Now to sneak attack with a withdrawal. They'll never know what hit 'em. Hahahaha
