Anyone else heard from swestern this year? Ive looked at data form a couple years back when my 2.64, 161 lsat seemed strong enough to egt in, but ive heard and read admissions standards have tightened considerably. Also, any news on waitlists at Southwest?

Turned in my app on 11/7, went complete a few days later & it still says my application is underreview....they are taking FOREVER.

P.S. This is what I think Southwestern is trying to do: Since they are trying to better the reputation of their law school & raise their rankings, they are waiting to receive all application before making decisions about non-auto admit applications. Everyone who has been admitted thus far, has been an auto admit. So I think they are waiting to see what their application pool will be like before making decisions about non-auto admits.

If this is truly the case, they are not really using rolling admissions & it doesn't matter when you applied to Southwestern. I am an example of that. I turned my app in on 11/7 & people who turned in their app after me have already been admitted.

i'm one of those people...but i still think it's rolling admissions since if it wasnt, i wouldnt have received an accept yet...
You're an auto admit @ SW with your numbers. I think if you had turned your app in Dec, you would have been admitted already.

I turned my app in January 9th and have already been admitted - and by no means am I an auto-admit.

You applied FT right? Yes you are an autoadmit according to your numbers. There 75% for GPA/LSAT are as follows: 3.62 & 157. I would say if you you're in the 75% for both GPA/LSAT, you're an auto admit at most non T14 schools.

That's interesting.  According to Princetonreview.com (my primary source), the average LSAT is a 157 and the average GPA is a 3.4.  Go figure.
