Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
What if the 3.4 is because of severe adversity and paired with rare softs
Or 3.5 in my case
Well, I'm just looking at past data: https://www.lsd.law/search/2Dsxe
Presumably, some of those people wrote GPA addenda discussing adversity, or had rare softs (you can look at individual users to see how they rated their own softs), but the data will never be able to tell us the likelihood of any individual case. But, yes, having rare softs or having overcome adversity matters, as does work experience. I received a full ride from a T14 with a 176/3.6, and I'm guessing my softs/background mattered.
Why LDS has not updated ranking?!
Because the rankings this year were even sillier than usual?
Do the top schools have gpa floors?
Probably 3.0s unless extraordinary circumstances. Really hard to tell because this data only makes up 20 percent of the cycle and is all skewed higher. Just shoot your shot cause nobody can predict individual circumstances
But make up for a gpa by getting a high lsat for sure
what is going on with chicago
3.4 is pretty hard for t14 these days
Hey, I applied to UIC Law Chicago February 1, still pending. That’s ridiculous to be honest

Anybody get off the UMich waitlist?

@CloisteredSecondBullfrog: still waiting on Loyola Chicago since Feb as well...
Have a 3.1 with 170 LSAT and want big law. Which schools should I apply
Anybody get off the SLS waitlist? I'm hanging on, hoping for a call
lol got the decision today. Keeping the trend alive, baby T_T
Anyone hear from UChicago today? My status went from UR back to WL.
I did!!!
there are also a few others on LSD who I believe heard back today since they have not posted acceptances before
Did anyone get a GW feeler today?
^ Yup
Do we think they’re any more uchicago As? I got the feeler but no A today :(
anyone heard back from Brooklyn Law?
What is the idea behind sending a feeler and then not accepting? I get that they're narrowing the pool, but I don't know how the feeler letter helps them do that
psychological torture
just got a feeler from w&m lol
Vandy is def not full btw, send your LOCIs
