you're not DF though right? i'm going to remake the DF list.


Finalaspects, your devotion to this batch makes me REALLY root for you to get in (and me, too, haha) :)


LOL, nope. I just figured that if those 166s were straight up rejected, then I would suffer the same fate. Good luck everyone!!

Hmmm...not sure if this is good or bad news. None of these look like immediate rejects, but none look like immediate admits either.

im worried that i am getting more hopeful though. i'm more inclined to believe that this is still a rejection batch. not sure if that one poster who had a 178/2.5 was telling the truth about being accepted DF 4/27. i really think he was DF 4/26 or lying.

the factors we have to take into account:

1. end of cycle. their goal was end of this month so they have to give out decisions to everyone including those on the border line. (possibly all rejections)
2. we might not be immediate admits but we might all have some great softs of some kind. many seem to be non-traditional with work experience.
3. being near the May 1st deposit deadline, USC might have secured their medians, hence being able to accept splitters/reverse splitters to further secure their numbers. that or since they secured their medians they want diversity, which is what im hoping our softs come into play.
4. they might not have secured their medians, hence are now accepting splitters/reverse splitters to make sure since most of us can sustain or improve either the LSAT or GPA medians.

I like the optimism. I guess we'll find out soon enough :)

edit:
1. I was complete on 1/20. I was still complete 1/20 when I checked 4/26 (I think). Then yesterday, I went DF 4/27.
2. I have 4 years of work experience in a fairly unique soft. I think this is how I got onto most of my waitlists.

Does anyone think they send out the letters the same day you go DF? I am in LA, so if they sent them yesterday (by any stroke of luck), I will get mine today.

They might. My status checker changed on Friday from IR to DF 4/26. I got my admissions packet in the mail on Tuesday. I live in Long Beach, so not too far from LA. Good luck!

might have changed now, but in the past the letters weren't even sent out until 2 days after the DF date.

It kind of seems like we are all slightly unique in one way or another. Hopefully this means they want us!

P.S. I can't stop checking this thread.

i just want that other guy to verify if he went DF 4/27 and not 4/26.... 178/2.5 guy who got accepted already... but he really got the email too quick to be 4/27.

Yeah, I'm not sure why the post dated by DF date in the future. Got my email on 4/27 at around 1:30 pm PST.

Hard to know, though, if people put down the actual DF date for the decision or the date they actually find out what the decision is. Know what I mean?

so technically since the day you knew you went DF (friday) it took 3 days for the email.

which also shows that the other guy who had a 178/2.5 who stated he got the email just now, would be a DF for 4/26 like you, and not DF 4/27. makes sense.
