Yeah, withdrew from UVA the minute I got the WL. Penn, I'm just going to ride the WL on it mostly just for the hell of it, but probably won't be getting in since I don't feel they're worth any LOCI or extra LOR's.

Already trolling for Michigan? That didn't take long.


To be fair, I have always been a big fan of any of the HYSM schools.


HYSCCM, right?


Blatant NYU trolling

Yeah. Penn is pretty mehhh... Wasn't too phased by the rejection. What's the deal with NYU? I still haven't heard either.

Same here, not a peep from NYU other than telling me I was complete months ago. Expecting a WL at this point, same for Chi.

Although I don't want to get my hopes up, I think I may be the first Chicago sub 3.0 admit, ever.

Yeah, I'm inclined to agree w/r/t the "it's not just straight YP" assessment. I believe it's a combination of yield protection plus something else. It might be that they don't think you'll be a fit, or some mistakes on the application, or a less-than-compelling "Why" essay, or a lack of softs, or maybe just getting the wrong adcom on the wrong day. I think, in a nutshell, they're basically saying "It's not worth taking the likely hit on matriculation ratio for a candidate that we don't absolutely love for whatever reason."

It's probably also worth noting that I'm saying this as a person expecting a WL/rejection despite the fact that LSP gives my numbers an "Admit." I don't necessarily think it's an ill omen for other places, either, I just think Michigan has a slightly different idea of what they're looking for than most schools. That's what I'm telling myself, at least.

NU trolling? I didn't even apply. Better biglaw placement than both C and G though. And students can take classes at a T3 B-school. And it's in the nicest part of Chicago.

Haven't heard anything for NYU, either. Pretty much gave up hope on them. Chicago is my last hope for cracking CCN, but I'm not holding my breath. Hey, at least there's always EDing UVA!

Something tells me I'm not the only one with a signed ED contract ready to go. Y'know, just in case... :mrgreen:

I'm starting to think about having one ready to go too, just in case. Even though UVa is probably after MVPDN on my list (just shows you how much confidence I lack in how my cycle is going to turn out). How late is it an option?

March 1st, same as GTown I believe. Unfortunately every splitter with a shot to go T-14 is doing the same thing (or already into NU if they have WE). Not that I don't plan to have it ready to be overnighted the second I get two dings, but it's a pain that everyone's smart/desperate enough to use the same strategy and create the bottleneck.

Yeah, I'm not a real severe splitter (Berk is the only school in the T14 where I'm under 25th for GPA and over 75th for LSAT), which is a bit comforting.

I think my numbers might actually be 'mediocre' enough compared to some of the shocking dings in this thread to get me into Mich.

Ah, you shouldn't have a problem in that case. You'd go to the top o' the heap for your UVA ED, I'd imagine. They've got to start running out of room for the GPA-challenged soon :roll:
