Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
If I applied early but didn't get an acceptance this weekend, am I screwed?
Yeah same….
I don't think so....
Looks like there's a decent number of people in the same situation
Yeah I’m just being paranoid for no reason
Im in the same boat haven't gotten an A yet
Just saw a rejection came through. Are more inbound? Does that mean we are done with As for now?
It was a low GPA R wave, my first R of the cycle haha
Guess they really want to protect that 3.70 25th - even a 2.90/168 got an R
@wealthofnations: I feel ya. I wasn't so surprised I didn't get in, but when I saw you didn't with the 168 I knew they unreasonably stuck on their GPA metrics. Not even waitlist, just a straight R.
Oh. I guess it wasn't you with the 168, but still.
@ScarletandDelilah: Nah yeah wasn't me, but made me feel better that I never really had a chance haha 169 R today
Utah is completely fading the low GPA applicants, it seems
@wealthofnations: Yep. My GPA is 20 years old. It makes complete sense that they would reject me based on that.
dang the WL hurts more than the R honestly
@treywagnon: I feel you. In a way it's nice to not be fully rejected. But it would also be nice to relax again
When do we think decisions will come this week? I got this message in my ASO last week "Your application is in review. You will be notified via email e-mail when a decision has been rendered."
Seems like last year, a lot of results were released in mid-Feburary. I hope we don't have to wait that long. It makes me anxious seeing the occasional decision added to LSD.
I submitted my application last week and still haven't gotten an email or status check info. I called and they said they had it though. Seems like not a lot of movement overall for applicants.
For some of us, it hasn't been pleasant news :(
I got in on Friday!!!! More info to come on Wednesday!
Great! They're moving through the files now that the priority deadline has passed. Everyone waiting will likely here in the next two weeks (except maybe Jan applicants)
Any idea on scholarship timelines? They said today but its been radio silent
got the call today!!
below both medians and went complete on wednesday so shocked
below both medians and went complete on wednesday so shocked
Denied above averages for LSAT and gpa 🫠
Any thoughts on whether retaking the LSAT might influence waitlist choices? I don't think they usually have much movement but I really want to go to Utah.
