They say that they begin looking at apps in January, and that they pick them randomly...


Yet I know someone accepted in December! Those tricksters.


Ha ha. Okay, I concede the first part, but holding firm on the second (with limited credibility).


I would like to believe it, but can't imagine a school not at least sorting it a bit by scores. Hence the high numbers seem to get accepted first and so on. If not, they would be making decisions on people without the ability to compare them with the rest of the applicant pool, which I doubt they'd do.

On the other hand, there was also something in your app that prevented them from outright waitlisting or dinging you, so you're still in serious contention.

How dare you show optimism! Haha, that is true though, 55 mins till I hopefully get accepted!

But then again, according to LSN only about 4-5 have been outright rejected. That says something.

Well, in the closed-world universe of LSN (setting aside for now whether that site does or does not reflect reality), it appears that the vast majority of those who have already been accepted at UCD are either 165+ on the LSAT, or maybe 3.9+ on GPA (or both), oh and there's a handful of URM admits with lesser numbers. (160, 3.4, e.g.)
That, along with adonai's observation about the 4 rejections, tells me that those admitted have been close to or well inside of the auto-admit pile... or something like that. What that says about the rest of the tons of 'pendings' I have no idea, except that their numbers vary greatly.
The Take-Away, inygma? You have good reason not to be distressed. But, I never need a reason to be distressed, so who am I to talk. :roll:

Those 4 rejections means that Davis has not gotten into the business of rejecting people yet. Whether that be because they haven't reviewed our applications yet or are seriously considering what to do with us, I am not exactly sure. Thus, insecurity and good reason to be distressed. We don't know what's going on over there. I for one tend to believe the former. Like someone said before, if the app review process was really as "random" as they proclaim, we would have a mix of lower numbers and median numbers getting decisions by now. But as you see, it is all auto-admit numbers. Not fair! There is no social justice at QUEEN HALL!

fair point. But they can't have given out ALL their admits yet. My optimism is trying so, so hard.

Dear Davis,

I suggested earlier in this thread that you perform the anatomically impossible feat of attempted self-copulation. I apologize. You understand, I'm sure, that I'm just really stressed out.

Well, anyway. You mean a lot to me. And, yeah, I know I've been drinking tonight ... and I know I've not been myself lately. ... But, shhh-shhh. Listen. What I'm trying to say is that I really care about you. Sorry I used such crass language earlier. It wasn't right. Not to a fine school like yourself. And, you know what, you do deserve better. You deserve a man who brings you flowers and cooks you a nice dinner from time to time... You deserve a man who can easily score at 165+. ... The first time.

Anyway, what I've been meaning to say is that ... well Hastings just isn't what I thought. I know. I know. You were right. I mean, I know you didn't say anything about Hastings. But I could tell what you were thinking: "Hastings is no good for you," you said; "you think you want Hastings," you said, "but you'll come crawling back, and when you do, nuh-uh."

I was blinded, Davis. I was blinded by the prospect of the ... well ... I guess the Tenderloin and the exorbitant COA. I don't know. Actually. Maybe it was Golden Gate Park. Baker Beach. I mean. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in my backyard? Please, Davis. You've got bike paths, sure. But you can't compete with HSB X.

Anyway ... what? Yes. OK. OK. Yes. Hastings told me today not to come around anymore. That she needs some time. Maybe till May. Maybe July. Maybe never, I don't know. ... I know. I know. It sounds like I'm just crawling back to you now that my heart's been broken.

Well ... OK. It's true. But, Davis ... you know you're the law school for me. Let's quit playing games, Davis. You know I'm yours.

Aw, man. Never heard of it. Just looked it up. Think I could do it as part of in-person LOCI? I love to run and have zero aversion to public nudity.

waitlisted... but with my scores, i was LUCKY to even get waitlisted. By the little envelope I thought for sure i was rejected

but question:
when you're waitlisted they ask you to fill out a response form within two weeks, and i've done that to request to stay on the waitlist, but i did not get a confirmation as to if they've received my response- do you get one? i dont want to look like an idiot filling in that response form over and over again

If you're into the public nudity piece, you're likely not going to be running much in B2B. It's much more likely that you'll be wearing some sort of costume, pushing a shopping cart with a keg in it.

Also don't forget things like Love Fest (even if you're not into electronic music, still a blast), Santacon (aka Santarchy), Outside Lands, and many, many other events that would be difficult to remember if not for the embarrassing, and sometimes legally incriminating, facebook pictures that emerge a few days later.

If you like cycling (or touring biking), there's all of Marin County, plus over by Point Reyes, Muir Woods area, plus in the East Bay great rides up and over the Oakland Hills, etc etc etc. Davis is flat + I live here + I like cycling = I miss hills. ) :

You could do all of this nude as well, I imagine, but parts of you may not forgive you for it.
