you might be wrong.
i got a mailer inviting me to apply to WUSTL before i got my score.  i'm fairly certain that they didn't want my gpa ;-).

Maybe WUSTL can give you your LSAT score...

I haven't received any mailers, but I may ask WUStL for my LSAT score anyway. They can't be much ~less~ help than LSAC has been so far.

Congrats on the great score, whatfoster, and good luck with your apps. When did you take the test?

WUSTL sent me the same thing, a month before I took the test. I do not think they know your score. It is simply that you allowed law schools to get info about you. They probably send the viewbook to everyone who has recently or is about to take the test.

I got the same thing from WUSL about a week ago. I also got an email from Northwestern saying they would extend the application process for me if I applied but I am not sure if that was before or after I took the LSAT. My gpa is an underacheiving 3.12 and so I have come up with 2 conclusions. Either they saw I was taking the Feb. LSAT and wanted to make some extra money on application fees (probable) or they know my score and I did well (which would be better). I am also in the 165-170 range but I had a dream I scored a 173 so I also have that going for me.

Man, if I can't even get the obligatory app-fee-boosting mailer, what does ~that~ say about my chances? I'm gonna double-check my LSAC account, make sure they've got the right address.  :D

You are more than welcome to send me some money if you would like. You could even include a law application in it if that will make you feel better though I wont really read it.

I'll think about it, Late2, I really will. Who knows, if my LSAT score (when it finally comes) makes me feel as stupid as I suspect it will, you might just get that letter, with a signed check made out to cash.
