I am writing to you because you seem to know the ins and outs of the admissions process. If you don't mind I want you to give it to me straight. I have a thick skin, so don't worry about. I got LSAT 158, 3.6 gpa in Communications, a Master's Degree in Film and I am from Los Angeles. I applied in November and I got a second complete 2/4. Do I have a legitimate shot or should I just quit thinking about them? Is the delay simply because they're waiting to do a mass rejection (which I have yet to understand how that helps efficiency when it is emailed)?
Also, looking at your stats, I would be infuriated with IU-Bloomington. How can you get rejected there but then get into WUSTL with scholarship totaling 117K?????!!!!! I believe IU-Bloomington has the oddest admissions standards. I get the sense they don't know what they're looking for.
in regards to iu-b minority admissions is weird so i'm not very surprised by their decision especially considering i don't help out their medians.
What do you think my chances are with a 2.7 (massive upward trend, addressed reason for which in app) and a 170?
