ITT: Splitter asks totally paranoid question
« on: January 17, 2008, 02:57:12 PM »
So yes, I'm a splitter and not an auto-admit, as you can all see from LSN.  My question though:  Is it possible for LSAC to send adcomms the wrong info?  Like is it possible that they got someone else's LSAT score or someone else's PS?  I'm just becoming a little desperate because people seem to be getting much quicker answers than I am, with lower LSAT's.  Even some waitlists that were dings for me.  Sorry for the paranoia - just want to know your thoughts on this.

you can check your law school report on lsac to confirm the report being sent out is representative of your true stats

you should also check to make sure you indicated your URM status on individual applications if you are concerned

so far, your rejections should not be surprising given your GPA.  i wouldn't focus too much on when other people are hearing...adcomms look at the entire package of an applicant (PS, LORs, etc.), and it's impossible to tell based on a number twin whether you "should have heard" by now.

i highly doubt LSAC switched any of your documents.  deep breath!

I'm completely shocked that you haven't gotten into GW or Emory yet.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my paranoia guys.  No, you're right, I'm not surprised at my dings given my GPA and I realize that most of the places I applied are super reaches for me.  I was just hoping to have heard back one way or the other given that I applied so early!

tl - thanks for making me feel better, Emory's my #1 choice!

You and I have very similar numbers, although my LSAT is 1 pt higher and you are an URM (gives you a bump!).  I haven't heard squat from anyone, either.  I just went decision at Georgetown, but I'm expecting a reject there.  Honestly, splitters just have to ride it out a lot longer than most people.  Normally when we are accepted it is later in the cycle.  It's making me nutty, insane and crazy, too.  Good luck!
To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I`m working on the foundation.

Problem is you are under that 3.0 mark. Anything is fair game when you dip into the 2's even with an LSAT in the 70's.
