  • 22:47 Erra2242: But yeah any non-reject is a success at this point.
  • 22:47 Erra2242: Usually people who submit early have the highest rates of getting in. But that's skewed because the early people tend to have the highest scores.
  • 22:47 Erra2242: They don't actually read the apps in order, from what I know
  • 22:47 Erra2242: They rank them somehow and go through review piles
  • 22:48 Erra2242: So you've been passing the reviews so far. I hope you get an answer soon. The waiting sucks!
  • 22:49 SuperSplitterFun: it does! but also - grateful for how my cycle is going
  • 22:49 SuperSplitterFun: just sometimes it feels nice to speak the frustration :)
  • 22:50 SuperSplitterFun: also, I legitimately have gotten 97% of my admission info from Reddit, which I only discovered after submitting my apps
  • 22:50 SuperSplitterFun: so I had a skewed expectation of timeline until like - November
  • 22:51 Erra2242: Haha same!! I found Spivey and got here and I'm like oh, so this is normal apparently
  • 22:51 SuperSplitterFun: EXACTLY
  • 22:51 Erra2242: Agree about the frustration. Honestly they should just have a set date by which they post all decisions and that's it. These universities are speaking about "mental health" and causing all the problems smhhh
  • 22:51 SuperSplitterFun: yessss
  • 22:52 SuperSplitterFun: I already know there's no way I can ride a waitlist too
  • 22:52 Erra2242: Same no way
  • 22:52 Erra2242: I've always felt that a WL is rude. It's like asking someone for a date and they're like hmm MAYBE let me look at these other offers
  • 22:52 SuperSplitterFun: yes after I showed you my best self 200 days ago
  • 22:53 Erra2242: Exactly!!
  • 22:53 SuperSplitterFun: YOU SHOULD KNOW ME BY THIS POINT
  • 22:53 Erra2242: Even corporate has more manners. They don't "waitlist" job applicants, especially not when some are considering moving halfway across the country
  • 22:53 SuperSplitterFun: so true
  • 22:53 Erra2242: I know right! Ahhhh
  • 22:54 SuperSplitterFun: I'm hoping GULC or UVA gives me a good first $$ offer so I can just let myself fall in love with one of them and be done
  • 22:54 Erra2242: Oooh I hope so
  • 22:55 Erra2242: The GULC interview was super chill, if they ask one of you it should be pretty breezy
  • 22:55 SuperSplitterFun: yeah I did the group one and I was shocked by how nice it was
  • 22:56 SuperSplitterFun: when I saw "group" and "Zoom" I was not thinking positive thoughts
  • 22:56 Erra2242: Same!!!
  • 22:56 SuperSplitterFun: but I thought the format was great
  • 22:56 Erra2242: Although I was pretty surprised about the questions. Not sure about you but they had us judge old applications
  • 22:56 Erra2242: At first I was like uh oh shit
  • 22:56 Erra2242: But it was obvious stuff
  • 22:56 SuperSplitterFun: haha!
  • 22:57 SuperSplitterFun: yeah mine was the same
  • 22:57 Erra2242: Bahahaha
  • 22:57 SpotlessReadyCapybara: @superspliyter what are your t2 softs? Your cycle is insane
  • 22:57 SuperSplitterFun: my little subgroup kept being the most extreme and I was there for it
  • 22:57 Erra2242: Yeah I have no idea why they did it like that. I guess to make sure you have basic social skills and can speak on camera?! Idk
  • 22:57 GoldenOmega: rejected by my top choice
  • 22:57 GoldenOmega: feels bad
  • 22:57 Erra2242: I was the extremist in the group lmao
  • 22:57 SuperSplitterFun: @spotless - can't be too specific but I work for the gov
  • 22:58 Erra2242: @Omega, I feel your burn
  • 22:58 SuperSplitterFun: lol I guess I should have said, can't be specific
  • 22:59 PerpetualDamagedCass: I'm sorry Omega :( rejections always hurt
  • 22:59 SpotlessReadyCapybara: that’s sounds super cool! We have similar stats and cycles but I got the Harvard dong
  • 22:59 SuperSplitterFun: ugh sorry Omega
  • 23:00 Erra2242: @Capybara sorry - yeah I think the softs make the key differences
  • 23:00 SuperSplitterFun: @spotless - you have me beat across the board :). I'm just old
  • 23:00 SuperSplitterFun: I'm guessing an April Harvard WL is in my future
  • 23:00 SuperSplitterFun: (prove me wrong, Harvard!)
  • 23:00 GoldenOmega: this is my first rejection too.. don't really know how to deal haha
  • 23:02 PerpetualDamagedCass: Hahaha Im old too yay :D
  • 23:03 Erra2242: @Omega It really burns and feels personal. Don't let these darn institutions define you. I was a HS dropout and my. entire school thought I would amount to nothing. I got rejected to EVERY SINGLE UC as an undergrad. I worked my tail off and got to UCLA and made honors with 4.0. Now aiming for the T5 of law schools. No one from my HS came even close to doing this. Never put yourself down, things can always turn around. Never know whose going to become a successful entrepreneur or have the most amazing family. Honestly it's the things you do after school that really matter...
  • 23:03 PerpetualDamagedCass: honestly, just cry and grieve for a couple days and then remember you have great other options <3
  • 23:03 SuperSplitterFun: mmm I usually turn my sadness into rage and/or drink and/or run while listening to murder podcasts
  • 23:03 Erra2242: I hope that helps
  • 23:03 SuperSplitterFun: uhmm def listen to Cass
  • 23:03 PerpetualDamagedCass: OOH I love murder podcasts hahaha
  • 23:03 PerpetualDamagedCass: I am old and wise, listen to me
  • 23:04 GoldenOmega: thank y'all I appreciate it
  • 23:04 SuperSplitterFun: lol closer to the 9 years WE than 5?
  • 23:07 PerpetualDamagedCass: the WE is tricky to fill out. I worked part and full time during college but been out of college for 8 years
  • 23:08 SuperSplitterFun: that's about where I am too :)
  • 23:08 PerpetualDamagedCass: :) nice
  • 23:09 SuperSplitterFun: alright guys, heading to bed! have a good night. hang in there, Omega! you've had good news and you'll get more
  • 23:09 PerpetualDamagedCass: night night :)
  • 23:09 Erra2242: Same good night everyone (:
  • 23:12 SymptomaticRacialMaltese: Hope we have waves tomorrow
  • 23:12 SymptomaticRacialMaltese: See yall
  • 23:16 Whoisrickjames: does anyone have any wave predictions?
  • 23:16 OldSilkyMacaw: Maybe Duke soon?
  • 23:49 theEconomist: hey all
  • 23:52 Ohboy: maybe UVA Rs, maybe Columbia ALL, more UCLA ALL dont think its a big positive movement day
  • 23:58 HufflepuffPILawyer: oh my goodness
  • 23:59 HufflepuffPILawyer: i just calculated how much i spent on law school admissions
  • 23:59 HufflepuffPILawyer: LSAT, 7sage, CAS and all
  • 0:03 EmptyAuspiciousSquirrel: How much
  • 0:04 EmptyAuspiciousSquirrel: Columbia doesn’t seem to do bad news till feb so i think we’re safe for now
  • 0:19 FestiveEvasiveSnail: yay
  • 0:23 HufflepuffPILawyer: $2.5k
  • 0:24 HufflepuffPILawyer: sooooo thoughts on a Houston wave??
  • 0:25 FestiveEvasiveSnail: @hufflepuff i withdrew from the lsat 8 times so i dont want to even think about how much ive spent on lsa 🤡
  • 0:25 FestiveEvasiveSnail: hahah
  • 0:28 HufflepuffPILawyer: can i get a ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ GIVE *A* WAVE especially for hastings tomorrow?
  • 0:30 FestiveEvasiveSnail: yas give wave (A waves only 🤚)
  • 0:35 DropoutBear: Waiting for that Harvard KJ1 like I don't have an LSAT in the 160s lol
  • 0:41 EmptyAuspiciousSquirrel: Super mood dropout
  • 0:42 FestiveEvasiveSnail: hahahaha same dropout
  • 0:43 EmptyAuspiciousSquirrel: Apparently they do some interviews for below median applicants to see if they can be blown away by them
  • 0:44 EmptyAuspiciousSquirrel: I just know i'd be so nervous that i'd ruin any chances that I had with rambling lol
  • 1:02 FamiliarAnimatedQuail: Who does
  • 1:08 EmptyAuspiciousSquirrel: HLS
  • 1:28 Doggopups: so like for penn ed2, if u went UR2 this week, does that mean they've probably already made a decision (just wont release until friday)?
  • 1:28 Doggopups: and didn't go ur3 lol
  • 1:57 dkh2020: Do we think columbia tmo?
  • 1:58 gimmeachanceplz: did penn just wl everyone ..... or do we actually have a chance to get off?
  • 3:41 cowgirl: anyone still up
  • 5:19 CastlereaghQC: Does anyone have predictions for the next Great Yale Massacre?
  • 7:57 ScreechingQuaintPanther: Was just REJECTED from Colorado and my ego is very bruised
  • 7:58 ScreechingQuaintPanther: I’m right around their medians so this is PERSONAL
  • 7:59 alegal: i am in at BC!!
  • 7:59 alegal: I want to pass out
  • 8:02 HocPlantBlue: congrats!!
  • 8:04 primeWLmaterial: im still complete at BC for 7 weeks straight
  • 8:05 alegal: I had been complete for five weeks lol stay hopeful!
  • 8:05 alegal: I was under review for exactly two so it was a while
  • 8:09 AccidentalAbhorrentSnowshoe: Did anyone else go red @ fordham yesterday?
  • 8:17 DeadpanRightCapybara: @screeching I woke up in the middle of the night and checked my phone to find my Colorado rejection
  • 8:20 ScreechingQuaintPanther: @Deadpan me too. It was a surprise to say the least
  • 8:20 ScreechingQuaintPanther: I expected maybe a WL given how schools are trying to up their medians, but an outright R feels personal :(
  • 8:30 Engineer: That must have put you back to bed nicely
  • 8:33 ScreechingQuaintPanther: Very nicely!!
  • 8:35 BigSkyYeti: I just got a WL from BC snd if I get one more, I’m going tl scream
  • 8:36 BigSkyYeti: This has been I Hate Applying To Law Schools with BigSkyYeti thanks for coming
  • 8:41 IAm-Scared-: is priority reserve @ duke a waitlist or not
  • 8:42 IAm-Scared-: like should I be sending locis now or when seat deposits are coming up
  • 8:45 UnluckyComputer0: From what I've heard/read, sending a short "Hey I'm still interested in your school is good rn" and then send something more substantial around the first seat deposit
  • 8:46 Engineer: ^ya
  • 8:51 IAm-Scared-: thank you!
  • 8:58 SpotlessReadyCapybara: is there an NYU R wave happening?
  • 8:58 SpotlessReadyCapybara: oh wait nvm - the report was from awhile ago
  • 9:01 PhobicRhetoricalRottweiler: can someone explain whats "UR1" and "UR2"???
  • 9:04 Gemini: the first time you see "Under Review" or "Under Committee Review" or something like that is UR1
  • 9:05 Gemini: When the date changes, but you remain "Under Review", that's what we call UR2
  • 9:23 yearningtolawyer: Continuing what @gemini said, UR2 usually means that your file has been given to the second reader for review
  • 9:25 HalfUnknownSnail: so we think columbia is happening today?
  • 9:27 LongingScaredCentipede: I think so, snail
  • 9:27 LongingScaredCentipede: I would expect it 12-1PM like last week
  • 9:29 apple12: finally UR2 at Penn!
  • 9:31 nrigil: Hey ya'll! Does anyone know of any good resources that help explain how to get law school loans, etc.?
  • 9:31 FlutteringImaginaryCaterpillar: What does the count column mean in the recent decisions tab
  • 9:32 sufferingprelaw: @fluttering how many people have that same decision today
  • 9:33 sufferingprelaw: so right now 7 LSD users were waitlisted to BC and 6 were accepted

  • 9:38 sufferingprelaw: since apps are up i get that most schools are taking longer
  • 9:38 sufferingprelaw: but still
  • 9:38 sufferingprelaw: i'm impatient
  • 9:39 bchiki32: yeah ...
  • 9:39 bchiki32: that all-consuming anxiety is rly starting to kick in full gear
  • 9:39 HalfUnknownSnail: the annoying thing for me is my desire import meaning onto it.. when in reality, with my scores, it most likely means i just got put to a pile to review after this last batch
  • 9:40 bchiki32: yeah i don't necessarily scream "A" on paper
  • 9:40 SlippinJimmy: just got ur2 for cornell
  • 9:41 bchiki32: did kjd's not work during college?
  • 9:41 SlippinJimmy: could be a sign of movement
  • 9:41 bchiki32: genuine question
  • 9:41 SlippinJimmy: @bch i was told that summer / part time work doesnt count
  • 9:41 BrainyGoofyCapybara: college work doesn't apply to kjd status
  • 9:41 SlippinJimmy: only full time work
  • 9:41 bchiki32: oh...
  • 9:41 bchiki32: Really?
  • 9:41 BrainyGoofyCapybara: but your resume will still have the college work
  • 9:41 UnluckyComputer0: I'm a KJD and have been working since sophomore year but I was told it doesn't count
  • 9:41 BrainyGoofyCapybara: so it's not like it doesn't matter
  • 9:42 bchiki32: I see
  • 9:42 BrainyGoofyCapybara: you're just still considered kjd
  • 9:42 lucygoosey: I mean I worked full time during college, but I did not count it towards my years of WE on here
  • 9:42 bchiki32: I will need to make some adhustments
  • 9:42 sufferingprelaw: most of that stuff is just for lsdata purposes too
  • 9:42 sufferingprelaw: adcomms still wanna know what you did during undergrad
  • 9:42 BrainyGoofyCapybara: definitely
  • 9:43 BrainyGoofyCapybara: an adcomm will notice if you worked full time during college and take that into consideration
  • 9:43 bchiki32: I see
  • 9:44 sufferingprelaw: yeah i worked full time during my freshman year and hopefully adcomms take that into consideration lmao
  • 9:44 sufferingprelaw: i would HOPE
  • 9:46 bchiki32: regretting not EDing @ emory
  • 9:46 bchiki32: I want to be relieved of this anxiousness already .-.
  • 9:47 nrigil: Imagine having your cycle end in november lol
  • 9:47 nrigil: sounds amazing
  • 9:48 sufferingprelaw: i barely submitted by novemeber
  • 9:48 sufferingprelaw: i literally submitted a majority of my apps on thanksgiving day
  • 9:49 bchiki32: I submitted majority 11/30-12-3
