Ik you mean well sunshine but haha
“Luck? Luck!? You think it was luck he didn’t scream out in fear!”-quote from a samurai who became enraged after these people commented that a child got lucky by surviving this fire he strategically made it out alive of!
Well luckily we are not in a fire hahaha
:) we got this
Crazy cycle this person had
Hope for all splitters out there
yeah that guy is a legend
only got into fordham two cycles ago and now yale
Woah what did he change?
171 -> 180 and better essays
skipped last cycle
Guess my 3.5ish and 178 isn’t the end like Reddit said it was afterall
YHSChi is tough with a 3.5 but I think you'll get into a few T14s
Unless you have amazing softs and essays
be on the lookout for next year's super splitter discord
SYCH offers scholarship?
Thanks! And yeah I think I have “t2” softs
@SunshineMine: I just lsd’d, to say, ily! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Boom boom ba bum ba bum 🎶
Hey, does anyone know how LSData calculates its employment stat? I saw that Gtown's was oddly low compared to its 509s
@OptimalTenderCucumber: Take a shot at any schools you're interested in! While Stanford and Yale are indeed super tough (no one has gotten in with your stats recently: https://www.lsd.law/search/OmM3d), and only 1 out of 5 applicants got into Columbia, you have a good shot at all the others in the T6. 3 out of 5 got into Chicago, and, 2 out of 7 got into Harvard!
Do y'all think I could get Duke, Columbia, NYU, Gtown, or Penn w/ some $$ w/ a 3.78 and 173?
Columbia is a real stretch to get into with those stats. You have a better shot at the others, but it would still be a challenge. but, if you are accepted, I think they would probably offer you some scholarship funding. I would apply much more broadly, though. I think you need to apply to places like BU, GW, and Emory to be sure you'll have an acceptance.
What?? Those stats are firmly near the median for those schools. RollTide will at least have their essays read and resume reviewed by AdComms, which is all you can reasonably ask for. What happens from there comes down to factors we don't know
anyone else get the fordham feeler earlier today?
@InterestingMereEmu: I mean, over the past 3 years none of the schools OP mentioned accepted folks with similar stats at better than a ~42% rate according to data on this site (https://www.lsd.law/search/oFLCO). Columbia accepted 12% of similar applicants. I didn't say that OP wouldn't be considered. I said it was possible, but I wouldn't bank on it. It would be a bad idea not to cast a wider net, especially if a significant scholarship is the goal.
@ararara: you are wonderful<33
