Tell us what's important to you
Understood, thanks! Having said that, I’m still going to be trying for it. I think I would have plenty of career options if academia didn’t work out, but I would love to be able to transfer to the “top of the top” and keeping the academia option open. Question is which would be better for that: BU or ND?
has anyone who applied in april heard back?
probably equal but id feel better at ND
BU and ND are peer schools, so I'm not sure it matters that much. My gut says BU, just because it is in the same geographic region as many of the schools that prepare you for academia.
Thanks so much, everybody! I have a friend who is a professor at ND Law, so will get his perspective later today as well. I think the two schools are pretty equal as well, and I have good connections with both geographies/schools, so this is a tough decision. But thanks for your two cents!
^ @waytoooldforschool
about 50% come from HYS
80% from the top 14
I found going into academia from Columbia to be pretty easy.
But I had practice experience first, too.
Should I schedule a meeting with admissions for a school I'm WL at to update them on my GPA/Completion of degree, or just send an email?
Just send an email
@WayTooOldForSchool: retake the lsat if you can
Considering you got waitlisted with a 163 you would likely get full rides with 170+
Write a complaint for defamation of character, pareental alienation, abuse of the court process.

Can a splitter (3.4/177) get into Stanford or Harvard? Or full ride at other t14?
Harvard and Stanford are unlikely, but two over the past several years have gotten into Harvard off the waitlist, so you might as well try. Even getting into a T14 is not guaranteed. But, historically, folks with your stats have had a decent shot (like 50/50) at places like Penn, UVA, Michigan, Northwestern, and Georgetown. And, many of those folks who were accepted received a decent scholarship. but, only a very small number got a full ride. I think it really depends on your softs for that. And, in any case, I would apply to places like UCLA, WashU, BU, GW, Fordham, and Emory if you want to be sure that you'll have an acceptance, especially if you are shooting for a full ride. The more you apply to, the better your chance that one will send a full ride your way.
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?
