main_chatroom Rooms: General Big mad Advice
  • 16:16 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: I do, especially the t14
  • 16:16 LikeGrievingKoala: A few things actually:
  • 16:16 SlightlyFearlessQuokka: i was just denied at asu??? they literally accepted every soul with my lsat???
  • 16:16 LikeGrievingKoala: " believe that you would excel at Virginia Law and we hope to be able to offer you admission. We will do our best to have a final decision for you as soon as possible. "
  • 16:17 LikeGrievingKoala: ^ nice of them to say, i hope they offer me admission
  • 16:17 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: my belief is that there are probably 4 waitlists in the T14 that will be particularly volatile but otherwise i wouldn't count on it
  • 16:17 LikeGrievingKoala: but also this
  • 16:17 RocketshipWave: I really think sometimes it's better to R somebody than WL them, even if schools are trying to be "nice" to us
  • 16:17 LikeGrievingKoala: "Please know we consider the waitlist an integral part of our admissions process. We expect to make a number of offers of admission to wait-listed candidates during May, June, and July. "
  • 16:17 IndustriousStrangeImpala: I want George Mason bad
  • 16:17 PierPissolini: @LikeGrievingKoala: I recall, it seemed similar to the message of other t14s but it was just overall nicer?
  • 16:17 Lolgivingthisashot: W this Mich WL, My cycle is almost over, i just need Duke to put me put of my misery
  • 16:17 Volatilecrocodile: WL’s feel so indecisive. Like just make up your mind and R me
  • 16:18 LikeGrievingKoala: @PierPissolini: UCLA just hit harder because it was my first response. Columbia's was fancy, but similar.
  • 16:18 DodoBird: I almost wept tears of joy reading BK’s WL email explaining that they’ll send quartile rankings in May - would SO much rather know where I stand at least SOMEWHAT
  • 16:18 SlightlyFearlessQuokka: i know everyone shits on asu but like ???
  • 16:18 PierPissolini: @LikeGrievingKoala: UCLA hit hard for me bc although it wasnt promised I sure as hell wasnt expecting it
  • 16:19 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: I personally think the least volatile WL's this cycle inside the t14 will be CLS, NYU, and Mich
  • 16:19 TheoCrain: pier I have to believe As are coming your way for the rest of your schools lol
  • 16:19 TheoCrain: yours numbers are so solid
  • 16:19 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: the most volatile imo will be UCLA, GULC (counting them even though they're 15), and Northwestern
  • 16:19 PierPissolini: Hhaha thank you, I'm hoping they look as good next october :P
  • 16:20 PierPissolini: I have a friend who got WL UCLA last year and is now crushing it there, so we have hope
  • 16:20 TenuousProbableCougar: @CEOofImpostorSyndrome: why do you think Northwestern will havev movement?
  • 16:20 PierPissolini: Im thinking UVA might also have movement since their email noted that theyve had years where 20% of the class came from WL
  • 16:21 DevilishSkillfulBracke: @CEOofImpostorSyndrome: why will gulcs be so volatile?
  • 16:21 aheldma: Pier why would you withdraw your only acceptance?
  • 16:21 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: So far their waitlist is large, and according to a bit of data-stalking a great amount of their admits so far have options inside the T6.
  • 16:21 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: @DevilishSkillfulBracke: I believe that their falling in ranking + under-admission explicitly stated by Dean Andy will drive their WL usage up uncharacteristically
  • 16:21 PierPissolini: Good, good, let the withdrawals flow through you
  • 16:21 DevilishSkillfulBracke: So youre saying there will be a lot of waitlist movement or not a lot?
  • 16:21 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: for GULC i believe there will be a good amount
  • 16:22 DevilishSkillfulBracke: cool, thanks
  • 16:22 Lolgivingthisashot: Anyone else having trouble w the Mich WL form?
  • 16:22 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: if anything the process of interviewing WL applicants before deposits are due is evidence enough
  • 16:22 DevilishSkillfulBracke: @CEOofImpostorSyndrome: there's a special place in my heart for people that keep the hope alive so thanks lol
  • 16:23 abenz2013: I’m still waiting to hear anything from NU (applied 2/10), so I honestly don’t even know what to think at this point.
  • 16:23 PierPissolini: Gonna invite all of my friends over for a conciliation dinner instead of the celebration I had planned
  • 16:24 RocketshipWave: I really need to do my NU Kira
  • 16:24 RocketshipWave: How is their aid off WL?
  • 16:24 DevilishSkillfulBracke: @PierPissolini: remember when you got your 172 and you felt so excited and like the world was your oyster?....I do :( lmao.
  • 16:24 PierPissolini: Bro I literally did a tiger woods fist pump
  • 16:24 DevilishSkillfulBracke: same!
  • 16:24 DevilishSkillfulBracke: and here we are. in wl hell
  • 16:25 PierPissolini: I was so sweet and naive
  • 16:25 DevilishSkillfulBracke: i know!
  • 16:25 DevilishSkillfulBracke: so full of hope
  • 16:25 DevilishSkillfulBracke: i had no clue.
  • 16:25 PierPissolini: I lowkey want more WL just so I can say I hit double digits
  • 16:25 DevilishSkillfulBracke: hahahahaha
  • 16:25 DevilishSkillfulBracke: I can give you mine from UNC
  • 16:25 LikeGrievingKoala: >170 will be fine they said
  • 16:26 PierPissolini: I'll take what I can get for sure
  • 16:26 Law101: so I guess those of us <170 should just forget about it lol
  • 16:26 JGWentworth: would one be insane to register for the june flex to try to get off WLs
  • 16:26 DevilishSkillfulBracke: oh man I remember when I was told >170 meant SCHOLLYS
  • 16:26 DevilishSkillfulBracke: JG, depends ya score
  • 16:27 TheoCrain: @JGWentworth: will potentially be me
  • 16:27 PierPissolini: My hopes have gone from, "Ive got a pretty good shot at NYU," to, "hopefully I can get into a lower t14," and now finally we're at, "gee, wont it be silly when I get locked out of t20"
  • 16:27 DevilishSkillfulBracke: OMG YES
  • 16:27 ProductiveMysteriousEchidna: It'll work out, Pier
  • 16:27 Law101: who knows what NYU looks for anymore
  • 16:27 PierPissolini: @ProductiveMysteriousEchidna: thank u, my liege
  • 16:27 PierPissolini: @Law101: its not alums :/
  • 16:27 Law101: oh damn
  • 16:28 Law101: you are an alum
  • 16:28 Law101: that hurts more
  • 16:28 PierPissolini: Deadass
  • 16:28 DevilishSkillfulBracke: yes. looking at you UNC
  • 16:28 PierPissolini: Maybe should have been more well behaved in dorm life
  • 16:28 ProductiveMysteriousEchidna: reefer?
  • 16:28 DevilishSkillfulBracke: lolz
  • 16:28 DevilishSkillfulBracke: true
  • 16:29 DevilishSkillfulBracke: true
  • 16:29 PierPissolini: @ProductiveMysteriousEchidna: u know it ;)
  • 16:29 Law101: maybe they pick names out of a hat and yours didnt come up
  • 16:29 PierPissolini: Or maybe its because I told their undergrad donation drive to stop calling me
  • 16:29 LikeGrievingKoala: well behaved lawyers rarely make history, or something like that
  • 16:29 DevilishSkillfulBracke: hahaha
  • 16:30 DodoBird: I live two blocks away from NYU law and have literally altered my running route to avoid passing it and having small panic attacks 🤦🏻‍♀️
  • 16:30 PierPissolini: I cannot imagine running in the village, more power to u
  • 16:30 Law101: I am pretty sure they are not even in offices now
  • 16:30 LikeGrievingKoala: @DodoBird: have you considered altering your run route and bringing a sign inquiring about our apps?
  • 16:30 JuicemanOJ: another week down and still no decisions from either of my school s
  • 16:30 JuicemanOJ: WTF
  • 16:30 JuicemanOJ: going on 10 weeks now
  • 16:31 DodoBird: @LikeGrievingKoala: honestly, I’ve considered setting up a small shrine outside the front door and bringing sacrifices to it daily because...it can’t hurt, right...?
  • 16:32 CorporateCatastrophe: @LikeGrievingKoala: good lord this cycle is absolutely absurd. Oh my god
  • 16:32 Law101: or everyone can call their offices and then they will be forced to give it to us straight to stop the calls
  • 16:33 CorporateCatastrophe: @PierPissolini: oh my god x2. I am so sorry
  • 16:33 LikeGrievingKoala: @CorporateCatastrophe: common factor is @pier and I both applying "late" I guess?
  • 16:34 CorporateCatastrophe: That's a good point. I just retook april and am applying 9/1. Its my only hope to try and beat this absurdity
  • 16:34 CorporateCatastrophe: good god.
  • 16:34 DodoBird: @Law101: I really respect you’re low-key but persistent commitment to trying to get every NYU applicant on this chat to start a call-in campaign
  • 16:35 Law101: it just makes no sense why have a deadline if you have to apply early. Just tell everyone to submit it but September 1st and thats it
  • 16:35 Law101: @DodoBird: thank you
  • 16:35 RocketshipWave: NYU has 8,000 applicants this cycle—they can't stop all of us
  • 16:36 Law101: 8,000? damn I did not know it was that many
  • 16:36 LikeGrievingKoala: @CorporateCatastrophe: I knew I'd be at a disadvantage applying late, but didnt have much of a choice when the earliest LSAT I could do was january
  • 16:37 Tiger: hey that was me too
  • 16:37 LikeGrievingKoala: Doubly bad situation w/ my GF applying to mba programs. Hoping we both get in somewhere close
  • 16:37 Law101: I wanted to apply earlier but had an even worse LSAT score
  • 16:37 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: took the october one but was trying to finish up my undergrad, ended up hitting send in december/jan
  • 16:37 Tiger: kinda wished i waited a cycle looking back
  • 16:37 Law101: so had to retake
  • 16:37 harrystylesismyking: @SlightlyFearlessQuokka: sorry quokka :(
  • 16:37 harrystylesismyking: sending hugs
  • 16:37 Law101: well I did not want to take a year off
  • 16:37 Woodstock888: omg koala
  • 16:37 Woodstock888: my bf is doing mba
  • 16:37 Woodstock888: in the same boat as u
  • 16:38 Woodstock888: @LikeGrievingKoala: ^
  • 16:38 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: i guess a nice part about ucla so far is that you can apply to their JDMBA with your LSAT
  • 16:38 CEOofImpostorSyndrome: and it's near-guaranteed admission after your 1L
  • 16:38 LikeGrievingKoala: @CEOofImpostorSyndrome: iiiinteresting
  • 16:38 Law101: I just wonder what my score would have been like if I took only the GRE
  • 16:38 Law101: but alas
  • 16:38 LikeGrievingKoala: My UG was in business, so not sure how much I'd want to do that but good toknow
  • 16:38 Woodstock888: @Law101: did u take both GRE and LSAT?
  • 16:38 dreamondonkeykong: is USC just done?
  • 16:38 Law101: nope
  • 16:39 Law101: I thought about it
  • 16:39 SlightlyFearlessQuokka: @harrystylesismyking: omg im so upset bc i wanted to move closer to my parents,thank you so much for the hugs
  • 16:39 Woodstock888: @Law101: i took a risk and only took GRE
  • 16:39 Law101: but there were schools I wanted to apply to that didnt accept the GRE
  • 16:39 SlightlyFearlessQuokka: im so confused bc they accepted anything with a pulse and my LSAT earlier on in the cycle??? but i guess i was too late :(
  • 16:39 Law101: so I decided to stick to the LSAT
  • 16:39 LikeGrievingKoala: @Woodstock888: unfortunately she didnt really apply to places just because I did, whereas I did that in some cases. Probably shouldve applied earlier to certain schools, but figured I'd do it based on deadlines. Dumb decision.
  • 16:40 Woodstock888: @LikeGrievingKoala: oof i'm sorry to hear that. that's tough
  • 16:40 harrystylesismyking: @SlightlyFearlessQuokka: do you have other As to fall back on?
  • 16:40 Law101: @Woodstock888: it worked out really well for you
  • 16:40 LikeGrievingKoala: GULC isn't worse case, but I sort of applied just because & she isnt applying to any DC schools sooo
  • 16:42 Woodstock888: omg koala
  • 16:42 Woodstock888: COME TO GULC WITH ME
  • 16:42 SlightlyFearlessQuokka: @harrystylesismyking: i do, and the University of Arizona gave me a full ride, which i am EXTREMELY thankful for, but I felt a ton of pressure from my parents to go to ASU. They were so so disappointed when i told them about ASU because they're higher ranked, and i keep trying to tell them that rankings dont matter, employment outcomes do, but all they see are the US News rankings :(
  • 16:42 Woodstock888: @Law101: i lucky ya
  • 16:43 SlightlyFearlessQuokka: @harrystylesismyking: do you know where you are leaning towards right now?
  • 16:43 harrystylesismyking: @SlightlyFearlessQuokka: oh im sorry :( it's so hard when your parents get involved with what they think vs. what you think and feel
  • 16:44 harrystylesismyking: I deposited at LUC on wednesday, but I'm having a hard time between there and W&M. I have til May 1 to figure that one out
  • 16:45 harrystylesismyking: i have undergrad debt so the LUC offer is really appealing
  • 16:45 LikeGrievingKoala: @Woodstock888: currently thats the plan!
  • 16:47 SafeTrashyBird: dumb question: if i retake lsat and do worse, can that impact where ive been accepted?
  • 16:47 Woodstock888: @LikeGrievingKoala: omg yay!!!
  • 16:47 Woodstock888: @LikeGrievingKoala: are u in the GULC discord?
  • 16:48 GridNorth8: @SafeTrashyBird: No
  • 16:48 LikeGrievingKoala: No, TBD I will probably look into that once I actually deposit
  • 16:49 LikeGrievingKoala: need to figure out the merit scholarship stuff. Not sure what else to say besides "money please!"
  • 16:51 Volatilecrocodile: @Woodstock888: is the GULC discord for those who have deposited or no? It’s my current top choice but I’m holding onto my pending statuses for another week so to see what happens
  • 16:51 Volatilecrocodile: So I haven’t deposited yet
  • 16:51 nota999: Don't forget to include "I have done nothing wrong, ever, in my life."
  • 16:51 nota999: @Volatilecrocodile: It's for admitted students, not necessarily folks who have committed
  • 16:52 B6767: Anyone else wondering why there are fewer HLS acceptances on here than last year 🤔
  • 16:52 lil-froggo: wowwwwwwww Michigan
  • 16:52 Volatilecrocodile: @nota999: how can I join?
  • 16:53 lil-froggo: "In other words, receiving this email means that you are someone whom we would be glad to have in our entering class, but to whom we cannot extend an offer at this time because of the risk that our class will be overenrolled"
  • 16:53 lil-froggo: repeat for all schools
  • 16:53 DodoBird: @LikeGrievingKoala: Can I hang out with you guys at GULC (I feel like the very desperate nerdy new kid in this chat...) My fiancé is also planning to apply for MBA but decided to hold off until next year to avoid the hot mess of having competing cities/applications
  • 16:53 Woodstock888: @DodoBird: Yes!!
  • 16:53 Volatilecrocodile: I really did not enjoy that line from UM. Better was “ Let me acknowledge that your reaction to being placed on the waitlist may well be disappointment, or possibly outright annoyance.”
  • 16:54 Woodstock888: @Volatilecrocodile: i can dm you on discord
  • 16:54 Woodstock888: @LikeGrievingKoala: okay!
  • 16:54 lil-froggo: @Volatilecrocodile: I actually do appreciate it, because I think it's true
  • 16:54 Volatilecrocodile: Okay I’m an imbecile at discord lol. What do you need in order to do that
  • 16:54 lil-froggo: @Volatilecrocodile: same haha. idk how to work it
  • 16:54 nota999: dm is just a private message. Woodstock is just saying she's gonna text you basically
  • 16:55 Volatilecrocodile: @lil-froggo: I liked it a lot lol, it made me laugh a bit
  • 16:55 Woodstock888: yeah here just join
  • 16:55 Woodstock888: Woodstock#5838
  • 16:55 Woodstock888: add me
  • 16:55 Volatilecrocodile: Cool. Different name on discord than here, sorry!
  • 16:55 Woodstock888: its ok just add me that's my tag thing
  • 16:56 Woodstock888: DC peeps let's all hang out haha
  • 16:56 nota999: That's the plan lol
  • 16:56 HeartbreakingSpookyTarantula: All right, anyone have a wonderful LOCI they want to share?
  • 16:56 lillawlady98: Why is American sending out so many waitlist. Especially after the deposit yesterday?
  • 16:57 lil-froggo: deposits looking good
  • 16:57 IndustriousStrangeImpala: @lil-froggo: ??
  • 16:58 lil-froggo: i mean at american, probably
  • 16:58 IndustriousStrangeImpala: @lillawlady98: my guess is their deposits filled
  • 16:58 IndustriousStrangeImpala: Oh yeah
  • 16:58 lil-froggo: all schools full
  • 16:58 Falparsi: lord nyu really did people dirty today, didnt they?
  • 16:58 lil-froggo: this is ridiculous
  • 16:58 TheoCrain: @HeartbreakingSpookyTarantula: idk if mine is wonderful but happy to share if you want
  • 16:58 HeartbreakingSpookyTarantula: @frog don’t say that
  • 16:58 RuralSmoggyMastiff: Its definitely weird cause American on here shows like 6 people committed and way more people who withdraw
  • 16:58 lil-froggo: i mean it's true
  • 16:59 RuralSmoggyMastiff: *withdrew lol
  • 16:59 lil-froggo: these schools had no problem taking thousands in application fees, but filled up before even getting to my app
  • 16:59 lil-froggo: not chill
  • 16:59 IndustriousStrangeImpala: I mean it’s shitty but it’s the reality of the situation
  • 17:00 HeartbreakingSpookyTarantula: @TheoCrain: yes please!!!!! Accepting all gradations of wonderful and also not so wonderful bc DESPERATION
  • 17:00 nota999: Yeah, definitely sucks but that's what happens when everyone and their dog applies to law school at the same time unfortunately
  • 17:00 GridNorth8: NYU joined some other schools and said I hate you, I hate you, and I really hate you.
  • 17:00 TheoCrain: @HeartbreakingSpookyTarantula: are you on discord
  • 17:02 HeartbreakingSpookyTarantula: I’m on discord but not the LSD discord yet :) drop link? Also you’re a real one
  • 17:02 Falparsi: @GridNorth8: yeah totally crazy. do they even send out emails or are people finding out online via the status checker?
  • 17:02 Law101: so I take it Fordham is not doing their usual wave today
  • 17:02 TheoCrain: @HeartbreakingSpookyTarantula: https://discord.gg/AgYupHWT !
  • 17:02 TheoCrain: i'll message you from there :)
