i tend to think, "hey thats good, i have a chance."  unless they have the URM advantage, in which case knowing they got accepted doesnt really help

Yeah, I saw someone get into Cornell with my exact same numbers but was URM.  Made me want to tear my hair out (not like I was expecting an acceptance with a 156 or anything ;)). 

Whenever I see a non-URM with close to my numbers get into Boalt, though, I get this horrible false sense of hope.  I wish they'd send me my letter and get it over with already.  I'm starting to DREAM about them.  That's never good, heh.

When you see someone with similar stats get accepted to your reach or target school on LSN, do you think "Great I have a shot there!" or "darn, they just took my spot!"? I feel like my chances get severly diminished when someone with similar gets admitted, but I have been really pessimistic lately (it's beyond the point of the glass being half empty to "what glass?").

i never thought to view it as a bad thing.  but i will now.  gee, thanks, midjeep.  ;)


That's me! The official LSN killjoy. Give me 5 minutes I could probably make Richard Simons commit suicide.

What pisses me off is seeing someone with URM status with lower numbers than mine be accepted (and/or receive a fat scholarship) to some school.  I can handle a URM with the same (or similar or even slightly lower) numbers getting in over me because I recognize the need for some diversity of experience in law school, but it makes me really hot when I see a URM get in somewhere I haven't with numbers significantly below mine.

What REALLY depresses me is when I see on LSN people with similar number as I who have been rejected by schools that I've applied to.  :-\

For me, its seeing people with much higher numbers get rejected.  :-\
