I would doubt it. Youre still right there, plus they need 65% instate and so theres a good chance they want to lock one in at 170
looking at their new medians, a 168 25th percentile is crazy

Yea it is, their class size has shrank pretty significantly from 2020 (417 to 265?) Maybe they will look for a bigger class this year with them graduating a massive class + rankings methods changing. Pure speculation though
If you look at their 1L enrollment over the past decade they seem to prefer it around 290-310. 2021 saw it up in the 400s but almost every school saw a bump there. My guess is coming off the pandemic more people decided they wanted to go to law school so most schools saw a bump in yields unexpectedly. I wouldn't expect the yields to bump again like they did, so it'll likely stay around 300
Anyone heard anything yet? My app status has said under review for 2 weeks now
I completed my interview on the 20th, as of now nothing further besides an email indicating they will watch it soon.

Did all new UR applicants get the interview invite today?

Since switching from Kira to VidCruiter, licensed/user numbers have eased and this year a larger number of applicants will receive invitations to interview. Perhaps not all, but most.

Did you apply ED or RD?
OrganicToothsomeAxolotl

ED
hold or deferred to RD?? aren’t they different
OrganicToothsomeAxolotl
21:21
The language they use is “hold to regular decision”
ah gotcha, so technically a deferral. good luck to u!!! maybe send a loci some time, i saw it work for someone else on reddit last cycle!
Organic, when did you apply if you don't mind me asking?
looks like early sept. so i think they must be going in order
based off the two Rs being from early sept too^
dang, sent in ED on Nov. 1 so I might be almost last lol
Wondering if they're looking more into GPA medians this year, since now US news ranks them very similarly to LSAT (4% compared to 5% respectively)
it’s hard to tell without many ED A data points so far. i think a good amount of people are getting in on ED but just not putting it onto LSD? there was a reddit poll that had 7 As but who knows how accurate that is
OrganicToothsomeAxolotl
17:27
I applied in the second week of September. Sent LOCI.
OrganicToothsomeAxolotl

In the email they say that they receive hundreds of ED applications, so I'm sure that more ppl have heard back than have posted here and reddit.
imma need those hundreds of people to input their data on to lsd for my own sanity
This is killing me...
I believe most of their ED A come this month tho, at least the good decisions lol
there just seems to be less 170+ EDs on lsd this year than previous cycles. maybe bc of lsat tech issues?
not that lsd is representative of the whole pool but still odd
yeah, overall there are less 170+ applicants this cycle so far, although may change after January. Definitely due to testing issues, which means many schools are probably going to take much longer this cycle
OrganicToothsomeAxolotl
11:49
Yea, I think that schools will try and hold out on maintaining their medians for as long as possible before changing their target
maybe a lot more ED people will be deferred this year then so they can see the january lsat pool
