probs
Feel like no wave today kinda late
15:29
yeah probably not
I feel like Wednesdays score release will trigger a wave for Georgia
Bc someone previously mentioned they called and their app was put on hold so maybe they’ve put a lot of apps on hold to compare to scores Wednesday and make decisions
I wonder if they'll figure out then what their median lsat will look like and we'll see some admits below 168

@tropicalt: I am holding out for a holistic review

Didn't UGA do early january waves last year? Is there something strange with this cycle? I noticed other schools are taking their time.
@SidewaysGoat: my theory is that schools just simply dont want ppl to attend
16:06
Maybe the wait is a hidden test.
