I received the same letter today, dated July 13. Did anyone find out, after this last cut, what the final total is of survivors?

Forget GW...this school is the biggest LSAT whore I have seen this cycle.

Based on anecdotal evidence: I have a friend with a DUI, no work experience, mediocre gpa, NOTHING in his app.

but a 168 is all you need...

Haha no so!  My friend didn't get into Duke nor Cornell  :D   I think the main reason for GW's whoreishness is that they are on that tipping point of top 20-top 15 and they have had LSAT scores of entering students at the ~165/166ish range.  However, they are really pushing now for that higher average score for their students, so essentially I envision their application screening process this cycle consisting of the director of admissions saying, "Ok, everyone with a 167 or higher is auto-admitted...don't bother reading anything else, just check the score and put them in the 167+ pile here."

I understand all schools are like this to an extent as you pointed out; I copmletely agree, but GW most of all this cycle.

Duke did the exact same thing with anyone who had a 170, plus they turned their apps around in 2 weeks.

I just found this, and Iím not sure if anybody is still reading it, but I just got the GWU wait list letter today.  I had a 3.73 GPA and 157 LSAT.  Does anybody know the odds of getting in with that?

I'm on this waitlist with a 174 and 2.72... should I feel somewhat optimistic about getting off given that I'm on the high end of the waitlist, LSAT-wise?
