Maintain medians?? I don’t think so tbh. Feel like they are only wishfully accepting top applicants now. Feel like the 160-169 lsat 8% drop will have a big impact
Im a bit confused for USC, does the status ever say under review? Been sitting at complete for a minute now
22:00
@SkillfulKindheartedRoadrunner: yes, it does go under review, but i do think in some cases people get decisions while their portal status remains at the complete stage
USC needs a reality check SMH
thanks @nhalws
