Yeah I am in the same boat. For a while I was the one with the lowest index score that was deferred.

If it makes anyone here sleep a little easier who is still hoping for UT I was accepted almost immediately with a 166.  Granted, this is higher than their median, but LSN is the most unrepresentative thing I have seen in a while.  I was also accepted to UCLA within a month of applying.  I think I am the lowest LSAT score thus far to be accepted at either on LSN.  If it means anything I am not an URM but I do have a really high GPA.  good luck.

I too, have been dinged at Texas - while I've been following the board I was superstitious about posting till my first ding. So I commiserate with you all. I fall into the out of state boat. However, I'd pick Georgetown over Texas anyway, and I got in there. So no love lost. My parents, who are in Houston and looked forward to the prospect of nagging me throughout law school, are disappointed.

sorry to hear that, but G-Town will be cool if that's where you end up.

Now the questions: were you deferred then rejected? did you just now hear?

Yeah, but we want to hear about people with 3.0's or less getting in...

Amen.

I was flat out rejected, and I heard on Monday. Small, unceremonious envelope with 3 lines of text, starting with 'We are unable to offer you admission at this time.'

I have some interesting/weird stats though. My LSAC GPA was 3.17, LSAT 169. I was one of those switched-out-of-premed-track-but-remained-in-premed-major masochists. I also have unique WE at a high tech company for 2 years.

At least I applied to a billion schools!

naifmonger, I noticed that you applied really early. Were you deferred, then rejected?

anyway, sorry to hear it. You got G-Town and others on the way, but it's always good to be invited to the party.

sadly, even though i applied in october i got no deferral/waitlist/hold etc. just a 'sorry. we're just not that into you.'

i sent a modified version of my yale short essay, about my sense of humor regarding muslim culture. i figure it was a big hit at georgetown but can't help but wonder if duke and texas weren't feeling it. i hope at least someone at yale gets a (humorous)kick out of it!

my mom accused me of being happy that i got dinged at texas, only because she'd be only a 2 hour car ride away from incessant nagging. oh well!

They don't make any secret of the fact that they go out of their way to recruit Latinos, Mexs, etc. all over Texas.  Unhappy with the Hopwood decision, they went out and hired a black woman to serve as admissions director and a Mexican man as Assistant Admissions Dir.  They're both still there.

Not that I'm that bitter.

Hope you're not going to litigate with argumentation like that.   ;)
