Title: 2008-2009 Black T-14 Acceptances
Post by: AceKlub on December 16, 2008, 02:31:32 PM
I figured we should start this board so that everyone applying this cycle has a better idea of where everyone else within their stat range has been accepted. I'll begin...

Michigan Summer Start  
my numbers are:
3.5, 165
came via snail mail during early December

No, that's not it. It's just that, by most accounts, CCN > BMVP

Complete 10/30.

I feel bad withdrawing from all these schools that were nice enough to admit me... but I am also eager to free up spots for people on waitlists at the other T-14's I'm hoarding.

ehhh the lowest accepted Harvard I've really seen (URM) is 165/166. I have no softs to speak of, either. Yale would probably be out too. And between CCN, it's personal preference, and I like Chicago's clerkship and academic prestige. Also, small classes.

Maybe Chicago will still give me money. They still need highly qualified blacks at the school... and there's nothing stopping me from not attending this year altogether if I can't afford it.

They really have no incentive to give you money now.  You probably would've gotten the 64K if you held out.

As far as Harvard, you should've asked around.  I know of 2 black males that got in last year with 163s.  And GPAs MUCH lower than yours.  I'm talking 3.4 ish.  And no strong softs to speak of.  But Chicago is a cool school.  I just hope you fit into the atmosphere there.  Good luck.

He did:

Top 10, focusing on CCN.

I only have 8 months post-grad work experience. Should I still pursue Northwestern?

Probably not.

(BTW, I have a 3.92, not 3.91 like I posted before. Oops).

Also, yes/no HYS?

Yes, you should apply.  I just wouldn't call them targets.  You have a decent chance at Harvard.

Yea, I agree with this. They really have no reason to give you money, since you are technically bound to come.

Had I seen this in the Chances thread, I would have told him he had a good shot at HLS, even if that shot came from getting in off the WL.  HLS takes tons of black students (3.8+ gpa) off the wl around May/June.


Regardless, Chi is cool, I almost went there.

A, I shot apps over there long ago!  H has already passed me over a couple of times.  S was the latest of all my apps to go out because I was waiting on a targeted letter and wanted to perfect everything in my app.  Y I probably only have a snowball's chance in hell, but I figured why not let YLS buy something pretty with my app fee as they use my app to line a birdcage or something :)


In reality, I have about 11 schools outstanding, but I'm just not showing them until the acceptances come.  I think the paranoia stuff has set in.

I really liked the idea of this thread when it was first started by the OP:

I figured we should start this board so that everyone applying this cycle has a better idea of where everyone else within their stat range has been accepted. I'll begin...

Michigan Summer Start  
my numbers are:
3.5, 165
came via snail mail during early December

I'm applying in the next cycle and there really isn't a site geared towards URMS. LSN is filled with fudged numbers and half the time those people don't even come back to update their profile or simply delete the information entirely.

I kept up with this thread but it appears that it's basically taken a life of it's own with people posting accepatances but no stats to do comparative analysis. Come on - what gives? If you're only going to post the schools you've applied to without delving your stats, eagerly coming back to refresh us with the size and content of today's envelope, aren't you better off posting on the general board with the other T-14 threads?

P.S - Thanks to those who did post their stats.

1.  This assumes that people wouldn't fudge their numbers here if they do fudge LSN. 

2.  This assumes that people won't put up their stats at the end of their application cycle.

I had a feeling you would reply having seen the frequency of your posts and the fact that you failed to post your stats and your LSN profile includes only a LSAT score. Schmeh.

1. Why assume? It's an ongoing thread. I don't think anyone is reading each post of a new acceptance and taking it in with a grain of salt under the assumption that the person is posting erroneous information.
2. Why wait till the end of the cycle? Isn't this an going thread that you yourself update with new acceptances? Why are you not waiting until the end of the cycle to update us with your complete acceptances/rejections.


I think the point of the thread is quite clear. Ongoing thread for URM's to post their stats and acceptances. If you don't want to post your stats I'm sure we'll survive...somehow :-\  If you failed to post it having not seen the original intention of the thread, well, I'm posting this to alert you  8). If you posted your stats. Well then, on behalf of future applicants and lurking prospective applicants, I salute you  ;D

Also, your hall monitor schtick is cute.  But please, go cut yourself.  thx.


ETA: BTW, one reason to keep all pieces of information quiet until the end is if an applicant has distinctive numbers or schools as a way to keep a shred of anonymity.  It's one reason why I don't post all the schools on LSN to which I've applied.  When my cycle is over, I'll presumably have already made a decision and thus, more willing to go into particulars.  And since it really doesn't affect you right now, why do you care?

Also, your hall monitor schtick is cute.  But please, go cut yourself.  thx.


ETA: BTW, one reason to keep all pieces of information quiet until the end is if an applicant has distinctive numbers or schools as a way to keep a shred of anonymity.  It's one reason why I don't post all the schools on LSN to which I've applied.  When my cycle is over, I'll presumably have already made a decision and thus, more willing to go into particulars.  And since it really doesn't affect you right now, why do you care?

Dude, get real. I'm not going to be hunting around for your stats.

What's this? A .jpg just for me? Real original. I guess you really are one of those posters. XOXO anyone?

T.Dayne - This isn't about you. Hall monitor schtick? I was simply pointing out a deficiency in the thread. Don't wanna post your stats? More power to you. Perhaps you might want to keep your stats and other pieces of your application to yourself as it's just clogging up the thread. Perhaps they might be of some tangible use to someone else at the end of the cycle..perhaps. Nevertheless, the image posting and hall monitor call out is quite unnecessary  ::) Nevertheless, let's just end this here as not to further clog the thread. Best of luck in your cycle.

Once again, thanks to those who posted their stats. Let's keep em coming. I love this thread and wish every single one of you the best of luck in during the course of this cycle and in your future endeavors.

Don't want to hunt and just want the information presented to you upon demand?  In your words, get real.  And if you're too lazy to put in the barest of efforts, then don't female dog when people won't acquiesce.  I've been more than willing to share my stats with those who have PMd me either through LSN or LSD.  In fact, I took the time out to call someone recently (from here) to share a bunch of info about the law school process.  The fact that I don't help you is more a reflection of you than anything else.

As for the hall/post monitor comments, see the bolded for reference.

It wasn't too hard to find a picture to comment on the epic failure of your personhood though.  But I am proficient with Google and the Internet (as you have already pointed out, remember?).

In the end, I'mma keep doing me and you do the same.  If my posting bugs you so much because you don't know my GPA, feel free to keep on scrolling.

And with that, I'm done with this conversation. 


ETA: It's too bad though...I'm also a splitter-ish candidate and I probably could have helped you out as well.  C'est la vie.

Wrote a lengthy reply but just as well that it got deleted by accident.

Main Point:

You're clearly misunderstanding the point of my post which was for the posters to stay with the intent of the thread - Correlation of acceptances/rejections with stats. Want to post fake ones? Sure. Don't want to post because afraid adcomm is lurking? Sure. But over the past 3 years I've seen that alot of LSD'ers find the forum to be a safer haven to post their stats than LSN, which has been confirmed to be roamed by adcomms. Nevertheless, I would not chastise or berate someone for not posting their stats. It was simply about alerting those who were not aware of the thread's intent and had veered off with the likes of the fray who were posting their acceptances/rejections but had already previously posted their stats.

Whatever. I believe my target audience was reached - those who didn't post their stats unitentionally.

Lets not make a mountain out of a mole hill. Has nothing to do with asking nicely, being nice. I don't believe I was disrespectful to any of the previous posters. T.Dayne's response was quite unwarranted IMO and her/his position as contributor to this site does not bestow upon her/him the right to insult new posters - even though I've been lurking on this site for 3 years.

T.Dayne - I think you're totally missing the point of my posts. I am not in need of your stats and would not go hunting for them because what am I to do with them exactly? I already have lots of LSN profiles PDF'd as reference tools and I have quite a great rapor with past posters who's cycles are already completed.

I do find alot of posters on here informative, TL is great and the others I have read are a breath of fresh air when you're not too sure about this admissions process. I have no dealings with T.Dayne but I've read enough of her/his posts to assure you that your posts always appear to be teethering on the edge of insulting someone or feeling insulted/slighted. Is this always necessary?

Anyway, good night and hopefully this thread gets back to the OP's objective when he/she created it.

Hey Melbelle, I think my biggest question would be out of those three schools, why UVA?


[Original, I know ;)]

Taylor Dayne - I donít want to hate on other schools, so Iíll keep my comments limited to UVA. Iíd encourage you to visit each school youíre seriously considering. UVA provides a travel subsidy and there is no substitute for firsthand experience. My visits ended up changing my mind.

Location: Iím from Michigan and was living in Chicago immediately before law school.  At some level, I was just ready for a change. I liked the combination of small town living (for a short while) and moderate climate.  Charlottesville is a college town, but it has enough gatherings, concerts, etc. to keep you from going stir crazy. Even with classes, I made it out to the Jay-Z/TI concert here. Also, DC is a short drive (2 hours) away.

Community: I also wanted a close-knit law school community and since we work and socialize together, UVA students have it.  From softball to the craziness of events such as Feb Club (party every day in February), Dandelion Parade (1L Section Parade complete with dance routines and skits), and Libel Show (a comedy show that pokes fun at law school life) UVA does a great job of helping you build relationships that last beyond law school.

This is a social school. But if the main social scene and/or drinking arenít for you, youíll find your niche. I am at the twilight of my partying days and have gotten to know a ton of folks.

I had reservations about UVA because of its lack of diversity and southern location. Unfortunately, this is a problem for all top law schools. I was wary about having to crusade in law school.  As for racial and ethnic diversity, there are close-knit communities, particularly UVA BLSA (Black Law Students Organization). These groups aim to deliver social, networking, academic, and career support to their members.  UVA has a conservative reputation, but that doesnít mean that it is exclusively conservative. There is no shortage of intellectual diversity; I enjoy the full range of opinions and having folks who donít think like me.

Faculty: UVA faculty were incredibly responsive to me as a prospective applicant.  Faculty quickly responded to my emails about the program and even met with me when I was visiting to answer questions. Since Iíve been here, Iíve had the the opportunity to interact with faculty both in and out of the classroom (e.g., lunch with professors, events at professors homes).

Other folks may have different impressions, so chime in. If you have a specific question, let me know.

That sounds about right.  Michigan is too cold, and NWU...why?  Biggest downside to UVA: they allow prescreening for OGI (yes, I know the terminology :P)

Post by: Special Agent Dana Scully on January 20, 2009, 08:11:06 AM
Hold up...vaio...you have to understand that some of the URM applicants may not want to share their numbers. Often times there are trolls on this site and others that take what we post and create a thread along the lines of "URMS getting with X.XX and LSAT scores of XXX...LAME" or the "Black person took my seat at UVA"

Additionally, some people may not want to share their information because they don't want to. Be grateful for the numbers that are on BSLD...I feel there is enough of a pool of accepted applicants to give you an idea of where you need to be.

Furthermore, if you are compelled by a person's story based on their posts and you want to know what there numbers were or what they did in their application...be genuine, PM the person, let them know that you are in the same shoes (i.e. racially, culturally, from the same school, are trying to get an idea of a what a strong applicant is).

People on this board are extremely helpful (A, tL, Special Agent Dana Scully, and Taylor Dayne especially!).

They are not individuals that post here to inflate their egos, the genuinely like to see people (particularly people of color like themselves) be able to earn an admissions spot at some law school. Be cognizant of the fact that most of these individuals work full time jobs and are current law schools students. They are taking the time out of there hectic lives to give prospective applicants like you (and myself) insight...I caution you, don't do anything or say anything that is DEMANDING OF THEM in any fashion...if anything you work on their terms.

Try to be nice...because at the end of the day, you need them more for advice then they need you...just my perspective and welcome to the community.

One last bid of advice...also take the initiative to PM the person, letting them know who you are, your concerns about law school and they are more then likely to help you out...it hasn't failed me once. ;)

Freakin' Congrats to everyone...I always smile when I see someone get in...makes me feel like progress is being made ;D

woo hoo, thanks for the shout out! i'm glad that i've been of some help  :)

Congrats En Vogue and good luck Tammy. I was not so fortunate and am saddened in some ways.  I did not get an acceptance call on Monday from HLS after getting the TS1 the week of the inauguration.  I performed lower than my practice tests and scored in the mid 160s on the lsat which may have killed my chances.  I though the strength of my engineering degree from a top school would help, but I guess not . . .

Edit: I have maybe three T14 schools that I haven't heard from at all. I've also been waitlisted a couple of places that I haven't considered case closed since I know it will depend entirely on how the black yield turns out.

In at Georgetown, UVA, UPenn, and NYU.

Waiting from UChicago, Columbia, and Harvard.

Big ups to everyone in BLSDB. Their guidance as to where to apply could not have been better.

If anyone applying wants to know my stats they can message me.

Columbia! In, after being on hold. Wait list at the H-bomb. On hold at Chicago and will withdraw from there and the others. Columbia it is!

I think this is a wonderful thread, can you all please post your acceptances and numbers, since the cycle is over or ALMOST OVER for most.

belle, I followed your list, that WL is nothing...you pretty much owned it this cycle. Congratulations! So are you heading to Harvard(said in an elitist British voice)?

Haha, well, my significant other really wanted Stanford, but I'm pretty contented :)

Yes, I will be headed to Harvard in the fall.  Very excited!  Just a little less than 2 months until school starts ;D

Wow no way! I thought you were NYU-bound. Clearly not paying enough attention. Congrats!
