Getting an acceptance deficient letter (a better way of saying rejection letter) stinks.  Sorry guys.  Mine will be here soon.  Just remember that when you all are rich, happy, donating alumni's of another law school, that GW will be wishing they had accepted you with a full ride!

Report was sent from LSAC on 10/26.

3.55/terrible (I won't mention my LSAT score in public) - seriously, my boyfriend doesn't even know. I won't even say the number out loud. :-X I think I did better on the December test though!!



you probably already know this, but if your score improved, you can write GW a letter asking them to re-evaluate you and they will in May

I will probably do this - but hopefully I will be in somewhere else by then and won't have to worry about it.

I just looked over the numbers from last year on LSN and realized that I'm going to get rejected by GW as well.  They really don't go for the low GPA/high LSAT split there at all.  Rats...   :'(

Looks like I would have needed a 162 to even get on the waitlist with my 3.55.  165 minimum to get in....oh well :-\

Yeah, I'm definitely not holding my breath for good news from GW, either.  Please, just let ONE of these schools at least GLANCE at my resume and LORs! :)

The more I look at this stuff, the more ridiculous it gets.  Here are a few who scare the crap out of me:

What's up with the first 2? How can you apply ED to more than 1 school? I thought ED was binding...
In at GULC PT/ED - WooHoo!

I wouldn't pay too much attention to LSN, Eileen (and others).  LSN is rather skewed and doesn't give a completely accurate view of one's chances.  Eileen, for your numbers (172, 2.78), GW accepted 6 out of 22 applicants last year (~27%).  I would trust this data from LSAC much more than the self-reported and skewed data from LSN.

There's always hope...
