I don't think there's much basis for this. I went DF 1/12 and have very strong #s and got into two T14s. Not too worried here.[/quote]

DrGuano-How long were you in review?[/quote]

Sometime last week...maybe the 6?[/quote]

Great--thank you!

+1.



me too...decided not to write it after I toured and admissions lady described last two winners. damn you privaledged upbringing and fail community service attempts.


Would you mind expanding on this? I thought it was supposed to be strictly merit based? Trying to decide whether or not to spend half a day on it. Thanks.

They're rejections. Everyone who got a 1/12 "DF" was expecting a USC rejection based on low numbers... so either they're taking in an unprecedented number of pity cases this year or they sent out rejections early.


I would bet against this. I doubt its a rejection. Other than the evidence provided before my post, I will most likely get rejected and i have not gone into review or decision yet. I was completed late Oct.

WL is possible.

When did you go complete? and are you an URM?

Also does your profile say that you went to UCSD - University of California - San Diego? Or University of Southern California San Diego which is not an UC...

When did everyone get their status check email? I've been complete since mid Dec and haven't seen one. Should I be worried (or did it get lost in my spam folder like my complete email?)

This grouping thing really stinks... I've been complete since 10/14... Not yet under review.

I'm not sure if they're going to consider me a URM, but I did submit a diversity addendum. It talked about how my Grandfather was Jamaican and My Grandmother was French Belgium and how that lends me unique perspective on the fracturing of racial and cultural identities.

But honestly I'm pretty white.

I went to UCSD (the UC school). Graduated Magna Cum Laude. My LSAC cumulative is still super low though.

Sadly schools care about the LSAC GPA because that's what is reported by rankings...

change your profile though (not that it really matters)... but it says university of southern california san diego. There is only one university of southern california (ie USC), the rest are just called University of California, (LA, SD, SB, berkeley... etc)

You should've gotten an "Application Received" e-mail a day or so after you submitted your app via LSAC. It had a link to the website and your Login/Password. Maybe you can e-mail them to request it again?

All I know is, my bf (170 LSAT, 3.7+ GPA) got an acceptance a day or two ago, via email, while I (162 LSAT, 3.47 GPA, non URM) have the 'decision finalized' status; I feel like I would have gotten an automatically emailed decision too if I were in his boat...

Really? By e-mail? THEY'RE DOING E-MAIL ACCEPTANCES NOW?

EDIT: and just a random question to throw out there...does anyone have any opinions/speculations as to how much USC values numbers compared to UCLA? Do they take a more holistic approach or are do they pretty much admit based on numbers? I ask this because there were a handful of low number WLs for UCLA (including me :D...though not holding out much hope) but I'd like to know my prospects for at least a WL for USC...

I had DF on the 11th, and my numbers don't imply rejection at all.

Nobody likes me,
Everybody hates me,
Guess I'll go eat worms,

Long, thin, slimy ones,
Short, fat, juicy ones,
Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.

Down goes the first one,
Down goes the second one,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

Up comes the first one,
Up comes the second one,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

I think the DF date in question was for 1/12. I think someone said earlier that the 1/11 DF batch had auto-admits numbers. So..congrats in advance :D
