Damn, so...as a 163/3.74 with a second complete date of 1/26 (nothing more recent) and no hold/WL as of yet...it's safe to say I'm a reject, y/y?

Did anyone go to the ASD at WUSTL and either GW or Notre Dame? Can you tell me how they compared?

Edit: Waitlist.

There are no "urm boxes". You just check what you are (asian, white etc).

hmm but a non-urm with 155/3.77 got waitlisted?

with that said with affirmative action, being asian actually hurts your chances...

Dude, that's crazy. How's the rest of your cycle going? You must be getting money elsewhere, right?

I applied überlate. Only acceptances of note are GULC and UICU. Waiting for my waitlists at Penn, NYU, and Duke. Cornell might come through. I don't know anymore.

You really should take a year off and apply again. You would possibly get a full ride or close to it from WUSTL, and you'd possibly crack some really good T10 schools.

I had a thread in the Choosing A Law School section that touched on this. I'd really have to find something stellar to do for a year: I already took four years off in the middle of undergrad, and the possibility of spending ANOTHER year out waxes unappealing. Obviously GULC saw something in me if they were offering me a scholarship. At the least, I go to GULC and crack the T14. I visited there, and if that were the end, I would be happy there. With that said, I hope that some other school will see the same things that GULC saw (perhaps an LSAT median in need of being raised).

I can definitely understand the hesitancy to take another year off, but you have to keep in mind your long term interests. The ability to go to a T25 for free or to go to an elite law school would give you FAR more opportunity to do what you want, as well as give you are higher return on investment. You should really consider it.
