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.
@cheesemonkey: you will likely get in off the waitlist with your stats. The April LSAT scores will not affect your acceptance chances. If you wait to reapply next year, then it will count for something. For now, there's nothing else to do. If you had a 166 (or even 165), it's likely they would have permitted the lower GPA. It's all about numbers. Waitlist means they like you. You can see this from others who have been rejected, with a higher lsat or higher gpa
Does anybody know when seat deposit deadlines are? Just trying to figure out when waitlist movement could be
@PreciousThinkableDevil: Not sure if you already got an answer to this but in case you haven't... deposit deadlines are April 15 and April 29th depending on scholarship
@AnnoyingDapperLemur: Thank you!
Hey y’all, anyone here commit to UUtah? Is there an admitted students chat at all for people attending/thinking about attending?
I am commited to Utah! But I haven't heard of a chat
@Waterfall99: Oo okay, you should totally add me and we can chat :) It’s a small class so it’s hard to find people sometimes 😭
My username is max2345
I just saw this!! @TikTokLawyer are you talking ab discord username?
received last week a message in my portal that a "decision has been rendered..." but never received the email? Its been 5 days now - taking it as a bad sign lol
Anyone hear about 2nd round scholarships yet? They are supposed to go out between April 16th-19th.
I haven't heard anything yet either
beginning to think I'm cooked. Gotta mentally prepare for R&R now :')
idk i don’t think you’re cooked
you’re still within the window to get something, it’s still the 19th!
Any insight into when/if there will be waitlist movement?
@PreciousThinkableDevil: im manifesting it to be soon! did you interview yet?
@CaringAbundantClam Yeah, I did! You too?
I did, did you feel like it was an odd interview? @PreciousThinkableDevil
@CaringAbundantClam: it felt pretty casual, but I actually really liked that. I tend to feel better in interviews like that. I just got the call this afternoon! Hope you hear soon too!
Hi all- need to know what my realistic chances are. I have a 3.54 LSAC GPA and a 167 LSAT. My GPA started off bad, but I have had a 3.97 for the past 6 semesters. BYU undergrad.
pretty decent chance with those numbers
likely A, IMO
