I also have a strong upward grade trend over the last two years, which I think was helpful. Happy to answer any other questions as well...
Ok, so I have a theory. Your profile says your degree GPA is 3.5, correct? I wonder if they're using that instead of your LSDAS one, and therefore you're not really a splitter. Any other splitters who've been WLed or admitted care to refute this for me?
Schools have to use your LSDAS GPA, though they might take it into account if there is a reasonable explanation for a huge difference.
Degree: 3.63 (magna cum laude)
LSAC: 3.37 (Illness, semester of Ws recorded as Fs).
(My only LSAT was a 164).
In general, though, it's still very, very early. You guys should know that someone got in on August 21st of this past year. If you have the balls to do what he did, and the heart not to die of waiting, you still have every chance of making this happen.
