Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
because they want 169 this year instead
But it doesn't make sense to exclude all 168 admits while admitting some even lower than 165. Why accept anyone under 169 if that was the case?
I am just curious how quickly that changed and why there wouldn't be strong candidates with a 168 on their acceptance list.
Wait I randomly stumbled here.....that graph is insane
anyone talk to admin about WL candidates?
only rejections/wls for the past month ?? and the straight line down the median? wtf is going on with this school
@AquaticClassyLettuce: the only sub 168 As i'm seeing have high GPAs and attributes that may be desirable like veteran status
Any movement?

Y’all hear about the secret preferred waitlist? Lmao lying ass adcoms

@Mountaineer99: Where did you hear this?

someone in chat called them yesterday to ask about it and they didn't deny it
