There are 137 people held on this spreadsheet who happen to post on TLS and entered their stats. The number of holds has to be staggering.

I was also rejected at Penn, but either accepted or placed on "hold" at every other T14 I applied to except for Yale (still waiting to hear back). My GPA is the same as yours and I had a 170 LSAT, so I'm almost certain I wasn't rejected bc of my LSAT. I know one AA male with a 176 LSAT and near 4.0 GPA who was rejected from Penn, Mich, and UVA. He went to Yale. URM cycles are unpredictable, but I'm going to guess you fall into the YP camp for Penn. Don't let it get you down.

Plenty of people get into higher ranked schools and get waitlisted/rejected at lower ranked schools for a variety of reasons so anything is certainly still possible.

Such as, for example, the person who got H, S and a Hamilton, but got waitlisted at Chicago :D

And quick question: what about your cycle is "NUTS" exactly?


I find it strange that I would get into Berkeley/Mich/GULC/UCLA and be waitlisted at TX despite the fact that TX is not as highly ranked and is supposed to care about socioeconomic disadvantage. I find it strange that I should be held at Columbia/Harvard (T5) which have always been higher ranked than Penn and dinged at Penn.


unless you are a tex resident you shouldn't be surprised, they ding all kinds of people from outside the state

You will probably be waitlisted considering you got held so late.

A late hold relative to submission date or late in the absolute sense?
As an aside, I really do think Harvard will be accepting another round of URMs.

That wasn't my intent at all and I apologize if I gave off the wrong impression. But if we're going to go down that road, I'd far prefer that we use this:
