Does anyone know how many, or how hard it will be to get in with the February LSAT score? I have been getting around 165 PT's, a 3.11, and Native URM.

Super safe bet you will get in with those numbers, especially as a URM.

If you aren't in state, I would ask why you aren't setting your sights higher.

Good luck to all of you receiving decision letters soon. Keep us updated.



So did yours not even have the 250 seat deposit line item then?

Also, does anyone know if all the status checkers start out with the seat deposit line item regardless of addmittance?

Thanks

My status checker never changed from "under review." I was pretty surprised to get the letter in the mail w/o a change in the status.

My numbers should have gotten me rejected, so I'll take this waitlist.

Time to work hard and get myself in.



what were your numbers if you don't mind sharing?
i received an email asking for additional information, basically a why kansas statement... i'm hoping it's a good sign.


I'll give you a range so I don't out myself in case they troll TLS. LSAT 150-152, GPA 3.0-3.2 , non-URM.

I was admitted and when my status was "decision letter sent" it displayed 0.00 across from the seat deposit dates.

I have a 153 with a 3.6 UGPA (non-URM and in state). I was waitlisted. I REALLY REALLY WANT TO GO TO KU LAW and was wondering if anyone had any good insight on additional information to send. I wrote a letter of continued interest and am having my boss write me an additional letter or recommendation (as I had three professors write my original letters) so I feel I have put in a lot of extra effort.

Does anyone know anyone in the past who was waitlisted but was later accepted?

Thanks everyone!

Retake the LSAT on February 6. Two extra points probably gets you in.

Also in today via snail mail. Anyone have any info about KU Law? Heard nothing but great things about Lawrence, but I have no idea what the legal market in KC (or the rest of the state for that matter) is like. Thanks in advance.

Temple vs KU vs. Mizzou -- All similarly ranked. Is it really just preference of location and market? Are there any significant strengths of any of these schools that should cause me to choose one over the other?

Anyone have any insight as to how long it took for Kansas to review your application, once you reached the "Under Review" status? Apologies in advance if someone already answered this question, I might have missed it!

Thanks :)

Congrats to everyone admitted! And good luck to everyone else!

App sent to KU, went complete two weeks later, decision letter sent a week and a half later, got acceptance letter exactly one month after going complete. Hope that helps.

Five states away, it took 5 days to get to me. And for what it's worth, my status checker changed to have 0.00 under amount due for first and second seat deposit.

Just checked the mail...didn't come today. :( This wait is worse than hearing back about my LSAT score! Thanks for the info though!

How long did it take them to send you scholarship info? I really doubt I'll be offered any, but I'm just curious :) Any ideas where you'll be attending?
