I think I have a LOOOOONG wait ahead of me. I submitted in Dec, my app took forever to go complete, and I'm still awaiting eval. To top it off, my numbers are borderline (163/3.51). I hope I hear something before seat deposits are due at other schools
dude.. is that borderline?
i think on the website its kinda misleading...
the stats they show are for the people they accept*
but for the ppl that actually attend*, its way lower.. i think 163 is 75th percentile - the info is on lsac
.. at least thats what I'm hoping for.. cuz i REALLY want to get in!!!
I have a 164 and no GPA (Cuz im international.. they gave me a B+ in conversion which = a crappy 3.3 i think
Yeah, its still borderline. My LSAT is at the 75th, but my GPA is below the median and pretty close to the 25th for matriculating students. This seems to be a pretty competitive cycle, so we aren't exactly auto-admits (far from it)
Dude. You're going to be fine. Put some optimisim in your coffee this morning and you'll feel better.
Also, just as a point of contention, I've noticed a lot of people saying this is a "competitive cycle" (not just for UCD, but for a lot of schools) and I'm not sure where that's coming from? If you're basing that on LSN stats, keep in mind that many of the higher number candidates will withdraw for higher ranked schools and a lot of early admits are the auto-admits that are well above medians.
If you're basing that presumption on the increase in the total applicant pool, keep in mind that more applicants doesn't necessarily translate to better applicants.
Don't mean to call you out in particular or anything, I've seen this posted a lot, but I feel as though there's more worry going around than is maybe warranted. FWIW, I think you'll be admitted without a lot of hesitation - best of luck!
