Law School Admissions / UCLA's average GPA
« on: December 07, 2006, 04:13:08 PM »
Could a UCLA undergrad please tell me what UCLA's average ugrad GPA is from your LSAC report.


So i was looking at vandy's LSN stats, and just randomly scrolling down I noticed a TON of bold W's.  so I looked at the top of the page, and sure enough, there are 156 accepted, and 110 withdrawn.  that seems like an absolutely HUGE proportion.  any comments on whether or not this is normal, or what it means for the quality of their incoming class? doesn't seem like it could possibly be good, but i guess if it's normal then maybe it's also not really bad.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Waitlisted at Texas

Got the email at midnight last night. 165/3.8ish. non-resident.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / What's going on w/ Vanderbilt?
« on: January 16, 2006, 06:56:32 PM »
On LSN only 5 people total (out of 36 acceptances) have been accepted with LSATs of 165 or 166.  2 of them were ED.  Given that Vandy's median is a 165 and that applicants are down about 10% this year, doesn't it seem likely that 165s and 166s will have to make up a huge portion of Vandy's class, as they have in years past?

Any thoughts or comments on this?  Any predictions if/when 165s and 166s will start being accepted en masse?  Is it possible Vandy will be able to significantly raise its median this year, despite the decreased applications?

Choosing the Right Law School / more vandy acceptances on LSN

anybody else notice that the # of vandy acceptances on LSN has been going up over the past day or two? these people appear to be RD. so maybe they aren't waiting til mid-january after all, as someone had reported vandy saying.

Law School Admissions / Question about Vandy decisions
« on: December 07, 2005, 03:27:24 PM »
from LSN, it appears that last year decisions were mailed.  this year, the application had a section stating, "At the discretion of the Law School, admission decisions may be available via email. If for any reason you are unable to receive your decision via the email you provided above, please check here."

anybody know if this was on the application last year as well, or does it imply that decisions will be emailed this year?

Law School Admissions / UGA's online status page finally updated
« on: November 15, 2005, 02:01:16 PM »
After sitting at "Your application is complete and waiting to be sent to review" for several weeks, today the status page was updated to say, "Your application for admission has entered the committee review process. This process usually takes several weeks."

Sent 9/26. Complete 10/24.

Choosing the Right Law School / DEFERRED at Texas
« on: November 08, 2005, 10:21:26 PM »
I posted this under the mail call thread as well, but I was deferred at UT-Austin today via email.  Mention of 1500 early applicants, 80% of whom will receive a final decision, 20% of whom will be deferred.  165/3.76 in a hard science from a top 5 ugrad, so the deferral is not a surprise.  Not a TX resident.

Anybody else?

Law School Admissions / Have a June '05 score; canceled today. How bad?
« on: October 01, 2005, 07:25:14 PM »
I took June '05 and received a fair, but lower than expected score.  I retook today and canceled, because after I did questionably on one section, I completely lost focus and screwed up the next section (which is uncharacteristic of me, but this is beside the point).  I constantly see people asking about canceling scores and see responses saying it doesn't matter...

But does it look worse if you keep a first attempt, and cancel a second?...  Or regardless of when it occurs, does one canceled score not matter?

Oh, and also, I had already sent off a number of apps in the last few weeks, and on the LSAT section I did not say I was planning on retaking the LSAT, because at the time I sent the apps, I wasn't sure if I was going to or not.  At this point, do I need to send addendums to the places I've applied and let them know I took it in Oct. and canceled?

If anybody cares, I'm 165/3.76 and hoping for Vanderbilt.  Hope this canceled score doesn't keep me out!
