Can't imagine scores do anything but go down
I was UR1 for over a month
just accepted to unlv via status checker :) still waiting on email!
Anyone else in the chat go UR at Cornell post interview received
@HealthLawHope98: Congratulations!
Congrats!
13:24
UR1 at UChicago
Congrats HealthLaw Hope!!!
i know its just me being neurotic, but how long can it take for a school to send the acceptance email after the status changes online?
13:28
It can lag behind by an hour or two, but if your status changed you shouldn't have anything to worry about
13:28
I think my ASU one took a little bit after the status updated
13:29
and congrats!
thanks! :) and thank you for all the congrats y'all :)
Haven't logged on in about a week, who's been doing the dongin' today?
So UR2 means you're still under review but the status date changed, yeah?
@HealthLawHope98: DOING THE DAMN THING!! congrats!! <3
Cornell UR3 post Kira = good or bad?
@ForegoingVagabondOstrich: wait me tooo
I think getting an II post-UR2 is rare so we are already in uncharted territory
So maybe it is standard procedure to review us a third time??
My Cornell update today was Interview Received
Sent the Kira Friday
Did you get the II post-UR1 or UR2?
Not me refreshing my checker every 2 seconds.. ugh. The wait is the WORST
UR1 for 10 days, II 3 days after UR2, today changed to interview received
@HissingAbhorrentLobster: same tho
14:18
NU status checker down for anyone else?
it was for me but then i just closed out of it and went back in and it was fine
probably just buggy
14:33
Ah, it's working now. I think it was just down for a bit.
14:41
Still haven't gotten a response from Cornell about my missing Kira registration
14:41
Dunno if i should send another email or not
Id email again
Is profile private? Can someone confirm
my
Your... Missing KIRA registration?
@ForTheShoe: You're private!
@imtoodumbforthis: Thanks!
14:45
praying for a OSU, GW or Villanova wave soon
I think Villanova is only doing ED apps rn and wont respond to RD until December
14:50
@AltruisticChaosSquirrel: I got an interview invite with status checker update, received the email from Cornell, but never got the email from Kira Talent to access the system and do the interview
If anyone wants a completely free application Texas A&M will give you a CAS waiver if you just ask
its been 12 days since I was accepted somewhere and I still don't have anything in the mail
Does anyone who has applied to Vanderbilt have any insight on the "Optional Video Essay" found in their status checker? Is this something applicants regularly do? Did any of you do it/not do it?
14:58
I'm not doing it
14:59
I don't know if it's KIRA, but it sounds like KIRA
I asked for alumni interview
The video interview gives you three tries to answer a paraphrased "introduce yourself + why Vandy"
i think they tell you to do the video essay if you are applying for specific scholarships
Or if you are too late for the alumni interview
I just went application review complete at Cornell, any idea when I get a result email?
Application complete notification at FSU after 15 days
anyone have any idea what "application review complete" means at Cornell guys
15:18
Congrats
15:19
According to reddit that means you're in
I saw that, I can't believe it to be honest, I hope its true, all the posts were from 3 years ago
15:20
Did you interview?
yes
definitely a good sign at the minimum
on 9/28
15:24
What time does UMich's status checker refresh? Mine still says 10/21
15:24
Oh nvm I think that's just last change to file
@SpicyMushyEel: yeah that's an A friend
I just got the email, thanks guys. I'm so grateful, hopefully its a great cycle for us all
15:35
grats, what was your timeline?
congrats!!
also, y'all are getting mich status date changes?
I havent had any changes since I applied to Mich
my date is still 9/10, which i assume is my complete date
same here
idk if they've even really started
15:37
Yeah the date changes when you get an update and their "Complete" is UR
@JakeG: II 9/28, Interview received 10/4, 10/25 I got the email
15:37
So you won't get an update until a decision is made
when I talked to their rep at LSAC forum they said they were only doing ED first before moving onto RD applicants
Same at the UC's
@SpicyMushyEel: do mind sharing stats? Congrats btw
ah i was thinking about last cycle when i think people got date changes after going complete at mich? not sure if that's been happening for other people this cycle too
@LexLaw224: you can look me up by searching my name in Cornell's graphs and data on lsdata but I have a 4.29, 171
4.29!
whew that gpa
15:40
Cornell 171 median confirmed
yea I was lucky my school had A+
mine didnt and had A-
tragic
I'd do disgusting things to have a 4.29
Incredible SpicyMushyEel!!! Congrats!!!
Congrats tho that's a lot of dedication!!
Thats awesome Cornell is a killer school
Ithaca is lovely dont listen to the haters
Thanks a lot everyone!!! :D
Will never understand LSAC's 4.33 stance. Absolutely absurd
it is dumb imo
do you guys think that they take into account what kind of school you came from for GPA
The fact that a majority of students literally can't go over a 4.0 is reason enough for it to not make sense
no not really
That sucks lol
No schools just wanna boost that USNWR
I always hoped haha
idk why they would
The only thing they look at is what your GPA is. So the fact that some people are on a 4.33 scale and others 4.0 is ridiculous
I mean some schools are obviously harder than others
Unless you went to like Princeton, Yale, or Harvard
but even then
a 2.0 from harvard is worse off than a 4.0 from a state school
even a 3.5 probably
absolutely, and its not close. GPA is everything.
I'd take a 4.0 at a state school over probably even a 3.85 from a state school
from harvard*
that's insane
yeah exactly because there is no reason for them not
yeah there's grade inflation everywhere
obviously I should have just picked an easy undergrad then lolol
Schools dont report the schools applicants come from. They report the GPA. And thats everything
If I know anyone in highschool interested in law, I tell them to go to the easiest 4.33 school they can find
Well the term 'easy' is entirely relative
I mean not really
it definitely is
some schools are obviously harder than others
School and major
and some majors as well
Yeah major matters more than school
like I was a math major and def could have gotten by easier with english
but its based entirely on individual aptitude
Like if you go to a Big state school and do engineering good luck getting 3.5 or above
Aptitude is less important when you have a .33 cushion to work with
literally 1 B on a 4.00 and youre (somewhat) screwed.
4.33 can fix that
yeah I got a B- and a B+ and I will never crack above a 3.9
I will literally never understand LSAC's position on 4.33 grades. I've tried to. I can't/
agreed
I'd love to grill them on it. I'd love an actual explanation on how that's not egregiously unfair
GPA is secondary to LSAT for a reason I guess
given how important GPA reporting is
The annoying thing is that most of my A's would be considered A+ at schools that have them so I would likely have over a 4.0 at another school
like almost all of them are 97+
yeah same here, my school didnt have them
how do you search solely for ED apps
^I don't think you can
Damn someone on reddit said it was possible. I didnt think so either
You can only do that at LawSchoolNumbers right?
Looks like UVA is having a smol ewave
Got the WL at UVA, second time in a year
I'm sorry friend :( that's particularly rough as the first decision of the cycle
sorry to hear it :( with that lsat it's their loss!!
Below both medians at UVA was expecting a rejection but still hurts. Got it today.
Hugs stormy. Gotta shoot your shot
@StormyMaddeningSkater: i'm sorry friend. better decisions are coming your way ❤️, try not to let this decision color your expectations for the cycle. Just because one school doesn't bite doesn't mean others won't snatch you up and shower you in scholly $! 💕
can NYLS stop with the emails oml
16:29
"Sorry we missed you!"
16:30
I'm not.
same *unsubscribed*
Unsubscribed this morning
You can! You can search early decision in each school's graph
We haven't seen any action from NYU and Columbia yet right?
Nope
no, likely no action from NYU until at least November, none from CLS until probably January
why have I been UR2 at UVA since 9/12
anyone else?
seems like everyone else with that date already got a decison
UVA E wave going on right now
Everyone be safe
i havent really seen movement from any nyc schools to be honest which is a bummer :(
does the status checker change if they WL or R you at UVA?
my GULC alum interview was a few weeks ago and its crickets on my end
i want a gulc interview
i just did my vandy interview this morning
@GrotesqueAbsorbingUrchin: mine did
CLS hasn't even sent fee waivers yet
they also don't tell you when you are UR - they mark your app as complete and then you wont hear from them until they give you a decision
unless they give you an interview but that seems to be relatively uncommon
I went complete at SMU, do you think I will get admitted in like 2 days
is it still possible for CLS to send fee waivers?
@10000rats: yea
Does anyones UCLA status checker have grey bar?
Like above the profile box?
I dont see any status just gray bar above profie
Yea I do, not sure if it means anything
@10000rats: great name (you always have to pick the rats) and yeah CLS didn't send fee waivers til Halloween last year lol
we need some A waveesss

UVA strikes again
welp I sent UH my c&f documentation that consists of my freshman year noise complaint and the speeding ticket from when I was 16
Doxxed myself lmao
the fact that UF's 75th percentile LSAT is 169 breaks my heart
A decision from Northeastern :O
Can you look at stats for early decision at schools?
