Son of a crap. California is NOT a big fan of me (see my cycle), but USC is the worst so far. (haven't received letter yet but given SaraLa's stats I'm sure it's not mixed) 1 LSAT point separates a rejection from an acceptance? A 3.6 is like a dozen more Bs in undergrad than a 4.0 (or something like that), whereas the difference between a 166 and a 167 can be separated by one correct question. I don't mean to say that they owe me anything, but to not be at least waitlisted is ridiculous. Hope you're happy with your shiny new medians, Tommy. [possibly more rant to come when the letter arrives - I would absolutely take my foot out of my mouth if it were a mixed batch but I'm sure it's not]
EDIT: I'm actually quite happy with my cycle, btw. It's just that I really wanted to go to California for family/personal reasons, and I've done categorically worse on the West Coast than on the East Coast.
I've done worse on the WC too (166/3.72) and I really badly wanted to stay in LA and eventually practice here. I'm still IR, but I'm not optimistic.. originally, I was expecting to at least catch a WL. Seriously, one question? I left 4 or 5 blank... I feel like the victim of a mean joke, but it's truly my own fault for not canceling/retaking.
Annnywayyys, Congrats on your options
