Choosing the Right Law School / Anyone waiting on Fordham still?
« on: April 13, 2005, 08:21:21 AM »
Still have yet to hear from Fordham. 

Well, kind of.  They were one of two schools that sent me a rejection by mistake in January.  I say by mistake, because they rejected me before I even had an LSAT score for them.  They appologized.

And BC - The mother of all stories - They sent me a rejection letter that, upon further review, was intended for someone else.  (Still had my name on the outside though).  I told them that if things dont work out i could help them out in the mailroom for a year or so and see where things go.

In trying to decide where to go next fall, I'm begining to think about what my class rank might be after the first year.  Even though I know that gpa/lsat aren't the best indicators (believe me, I'm pretty convinced), I still think it might be useful to know the average gpa/lsat of students who are actually attending the law school.  Can we get that information?  I can only find these numbers for admitted applicants, and I have a feeling that those numbers are artificially high for schools ranked (40) and lower simply because they are safety schools for a lot of people.  Anyone agree?  Any ideas?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / LSN Numbers -- Below the 25% Question
« on: February 23, 2005, 06:38:42 AM »
Has anyone noticed that there aren't very many if any at all green dots below the 25% mark  on either scale (especially the LSAT scale) that LSAC reports on the LSN graphs?

I even checked last year's numbers, and this is also the case.  (Were there not many users last year?)

The reason I ask this, and I imagine there are quite a few of you in the same boat, is that I'm trying to find out 1, if the LSN users are fairly representative of the real applicant classes and 2, if a lot of acceptances / WL turned into acceptances come later and people just don't care to update LSN by that point.

Any thoughts? ???

Has anyone taken the December LSAT and heard from a law school yet?

If so, which one(s)?
