I'm a applicant with pretty strong raw numbers- 178 LSAT, 3.90 GPA- but little extracurriculars, so-so private school, no work experience, and i'm a white male.Haven't heard from yale or stanford, no surprise, but...haven't heard from chicago or columbia, either, which makes me nervous. At this point is a ding likely, or am i worrying too soon?any sense on when the dings will come?thanks for any insight...
went complete in early december.
I'm beginning to think the longer it takes with us borderline candidiates the better. The rejections I've gotten thus far basically flat out say they are strictly numbers based, so it seems the longer it takes the more your app is considered. Unfortunately, that means when I get my rejections they'll be rejecting me personally, not my numbers (or just dangling me along after having put me in the no pile already).
They don't directly say, "we are all about numbers." But they do mention the importance in the "objective measures provided by the gpa and LSAT score." So, yea, it comes across pretty clear.
