  • 13:07 PicassosCat: Having now gotten a couple A's, I smile about one of my panic applications, but it was a reasonable option at the time.
  • 13:08 SuperSoakedSplitter: does ASU do waves? I thought they had like a 2 week turnaround
  • 13:08 kitkatpattywack: anyone else like watching law school acceptance reaction videos or are y'all normal?
  • 13:08 elshan: ASU doesn't have waves, they send out decisions basically every day
  • 13:08 710: @kitkat that sounds like straight up masochism
  • 13:08 LegallyNotBlonde: haha i do too kitkat. then its always to t14s
  • 13:08 nota999: The nice thing about having gotten an A at UAZ pretty early in the cycle was that every time I was tempted to panic apply I was able to go "wait, why am I gonna do that?"
  • 13:08 betterlatethannever: @kitkatpattywack: my favorite thing ever
  • 13:08 GatoGris221: Question: for fafsa do some schools not have the law school option? do you just put the regular school?

  • 13:09 PlausiblyAverage: correct gato
  • 13:09 JealousImportedBEAR: my panic apply was because I realized I liked chicago and was probs gonna get WL at UChic but Idk if it'll even help since I applied so late

  • 13:12 MeJustChilling: Late november rainy
  • 13:13 MeJustChilling: Sucks I was really considering them
  • 13:13 RainyFurryCheetah: I’m so sorry @mejustchilling. This cycle is so brutal
  • 13:13 PlausiblyAverage: @LegallyNotBlonde: chag purim sameach!!
  • 13:14 MeJustChilling: @RainyFurryCheetah: Yeah just been super unpredictable for me. It's chill I got other good acceptances
  • 13:14 jwabner: Anyone know if Fordham sends out WL/R emails in bulk or over the course of the day? Looking at my email religiously ATM
  • 13:14 FlippantFearlessFoxhound: what do we think ab a berk A wave??
  • 13:14 AbsurdDampEagle: do we expect a northwestern A wave today?!
  • 13:14 LegallyNotBlonde: chag sameach!!
  • 13:15 FlippantFearlessFoxhound: pls @absurd
  • 13:15 ToughHardGrouse: wheres this yale R wave at
  • 13:15 JAlfredPrufrock: I think we’ll get the Yale wave at the end of
  • 13:15 PlausiblyAverage: i want an SLS wave
  • 13:15 JAlfredPrufrock: the day
  • 13:15 CEOofShotShooting: is it normal to be in a relatively cordial email conversation with the asst dean of admissions for a school?
  • 13:16 ToughHardGrouse: SLS doesn't do waves apparently
  • 13:16 xoxoggirl: @elshan: just reading what you wrote up there-thank you, that feels good.
  • 13:16 PlausiblyAverage: i just want them to
  • 13:16 CEOofShotShooting: because this feels weird, I feel like he is trying to lull me into being informal and saying something dumb.
  • 13:16 hellohello: @LegallyNotBlonde: i wish not much purim stuff happening here bc covid meh
  • 13:16 nota999: I remember that I got my Yale R after my lunch break at work. So that'd probably be sometime between 12-3 PST, but I don't remember when exactly in that timeframe
  • 13:17 BigGreen-: I wouldn't read into it too negatively really
  • 13:17 elshan: @xoxoggirl: Fordham is doing some weird stuff this year. Really confused with their method. Don't worry. I'm still in at a T25 law school and will be going there with the potential for a T20.
  • 13:17 BigGreen-: unless someone is holding a gun to his head to admit you and he's desperately searching for a reason not to
  • 13:17 elshan: And I got R at William and Mary which is even lower than Fordham, you're going to have a great cycle I'm sure
  • 13:18 LegallyNotBlonde: ugh i need some retail therapy rn
  • 13:18 backtochicagoplz: @LegallyNotBlonde: EXCELLENT idea
  • 13:18 nota999: Any of you have certain words or phrases that instantly put a song in your head?
  • 13:18 nota999: retail therapy immediately gets 7 Rings in my head
  • 13:18 DidacticSteepChinook: one more time
  • 13:18 JAlfredPrufrock: My debit card expired and I work weird hours so I can’t go pick my new one up from the bank... best thing that’s happened to my bank account but I really need retail therapy ngl
  • 13:19 kitkatpattywack: i feel so dumb not submiting my apps back in november after i got my lsat score back
  • 13:19 JAlfredPrufrock: @kitkatpattywack: me too bb me too
  • 13:19 kitkatpattywack: i waited till feb because i thought i was gunna do better on the jan lsat and ended up doing worse
  • 13:19 kitkatpattywack: so now i have a worse score, less chance of getting in, and waiting longer
  • 13:19 nota999: No use beating yourself up over it now. Can't change the past. Most you can do is learn from it and try not to make the same mistakes in the future.
  • 13:20 JAlfredPrufrock: you’ll get an A, I’m rooting for you
  • 13:20 DidacticSteepChinook: Listening to 7 rings now...
  • 13:20 jwabner: If it makes you feel better, I took it in August and then in November and go the same score -_-
  • 13:20 nota999: @DidacticSteepChinook: I think about it a lot this cycle. Especially "If it ain't money then wrong number" while thinking about scholarships lol
  • 13:20 StraightLimpingFrog: Kitkat will get an A!
  • 13:20 LegallyNotBlonde: retail therapy my new addiction
  • 13:21 JAlfredPrufrock: I’m so desperate I have want to email schools and be like, let me in and I’ll deposit right then and there
  • 13:21 elshan: Has anyone gotten a BC scholly yet? They said end of Feb and this is the last work day of Feb
  • 13:21 kitkatpattywack: same @jalfred
  • 13:21 JinxCatmilton: @JAlfredPrufrock: I feel this
  • 13:22 xoxoggirl: @LegallyNotBlonde: dont get me started lmao
  • 13:22 nota999: I doubt I'm the first person to think of it, but someday it'd be fun to remix 7 Rings, but with the harmony from John Coltrane's version of My Favorite Things
  • 13:23 bumblebee167: @elshan: Alas, I have not. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if we don't hear until next week. W&M promised decisions by the second week of Feb. for PT applicants, and didn't actually get around to it until the week after.
  • 13:23 GiddyGemini: @nota999: I think there’s a few remixes of that already out there!
  • 13:24 nota999: I'm glad to hear that lol
  • 13:24 nota999: Coltrane's version is kinda what started me down the jazz rabbit hole lol
  • 13:24 VanityPlateRejectPile: Here to join the wave of Fordham WL
  • 13:25 hellohello: sorry vanity :(
  • 13:27 Panda: good afternoon everyone
  • 13:30 IntelligentGlamorousHound: My status checker for one of my schools has been sitting at "a decision has been rendered" for over 24 hours at this point
  • 13:30 710: oh no is this the nyu R wave
  • 13:30 710: or are we not panicking til we see 2 or 3
  • 13:31 DemonicPriceyBullfrog: hello good people of lsdata
  • 13:31 DemonicPriceyBullfrog: and nota...
  • 13:31 nota999: Don't assume wave until you see a few in rapid succession
  • 13:31 nota999: @DemonicPriceyBullfrog: <3
  • 13:31 candlessmellgood: does emory have a staus checker
  • 13:31 RuralSmoggyMastiff: @IntelligentGlamorousHound: One of mine has been sitting at that for almost 48 hours now I'm so annoyed
  • 13:32 JackSwoloff: @candlessmellgood: no
  • 13:33 hellohello: @IntelligentGlamorousHound: what school
  • 13:33 RuralSmoggyMastiff: I feel like Fordham is really trying to climb the ranks this year by raising their LSAT median but its gonna end up screwing them over because they're accepting so many people who will end up picking a T14 over them
  • 13:33 nota999: Me sitting here impatiently refreshing my email waiting for an interview invite that in all likelihood won't be coming for about a week probably
  • 13:34 allenwelshdulles: anyone hear anything from Furman at NYU?
  • 13:34 IntelligentGlamorousHound: @RuralSmoggyMastiff: it says I'll get an email but nothing yet
  • 13:34 IntelligentGlamorousHound: @hellohello: Albany
  • 13:34 allenwelshdulles: tryna figure out if they're gone out already
  • 13:34 RuralSmoggyMastiff: Omg @intelligentglamoroushound Same
  • 13:34 hellohello: thats weird
  • 13:34 Stressed32: Anyone hear anything from SMU or no?
  • 13:34 RuralSmoggyMastiff: I looking on their website and it says it could take up to a week between the status change and the actual decision email which is total BS
  • 13:34 RuralSmoggyMastiff: *I looked lmao
  • 13:35 DidacticSteepChinook: Anyone get Fordham news applying late Dec, early Jan?
  • 13:35 IntelligentGlamorousHound: Hopefully they're just taking their time to get special approval for a full tuition plus stipend scholarship 😤
  • 13:35 nota999: That's the spirit!
  • 13:35 UnableGrouchyBat: looks like fordham is one of the few schools that has been steadily moving through dates instead of all over the place. they seem to be in late Nov/early Dec apps right now
  • 13:36 ImportedSwiftPug: Hoping for a big UT wave today
  • 13:36 nota999:
    ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ G I V E⭐A⭐W A V E ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ
  • 13:36 ChuckRhoades: anybody know how many NYU HTE have heard?
  • 13:36 Felifel: ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ G I V E⭐A⭐W A V E ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ
  • 13:36 IntelligentGlamorousHound: @UnableGrouchyBat: I applied late January so I feel like I'm gonna get the response from Fordham like March 31 lol
  • 13:36 UnableGrouchyBat: I heard yesterday (1/28 HTE)
  • 13:36 JinxCatmilton: @importedswiftpug me too! im super worried and anxious we might get an R wave today
  • 13:36 hellohello: @ChuckRhoades: i think just some rejections
  • 13:37 odovek: what is HTE?
  • 13:37 ChuckRhoades: @hellohello: did anyone happen to catch what their stats were
  • 13:37 ImportedSwiftPug: @JinxCatmilton: Honestly I just want progress
  • 13:37 JinxCatmilton: currently crying and singing drivers license at the top of my lungs...... about law school
  • 13:37 nota999: Hold tight email. It's basically when a school goes "This is taking a while, sorry."
  • 13:37 hellohello: @UnableGrouchyBat: did you get in
  • 13:37 UnableGrouchyBat: twas an R nothing fancy
  • 13:37 ImportedSwiftPug: I want to knowwwww
  • 13:37 backtochicagoplz: @JinxCatmilton: omg twins
  • 13:37 GiantCrookedEarwig: @allenwelshdulles: haven’t heard anything on Furman yet
  • 13:37 hellohello: @ChuckRhoades: ermm i honestly think itw as really variable from what i saw
  • 13:37 JinxCatmilton: makes it even worse knowing im under both medians and my bf is a 1L at UT
  • 13:38 IntelligentGlamorousHound: @nota999: Is that good? I got something like that from Cardozo last week?
  • 13:38 nota999: @IntelligentGlamorousHound: It's annoying, but on the whole mostly neutral as far as I can tell. Basically it just means "don't expect anything from us next week"
  • 13:38 ImportedSwiftPug: @JinxCatmilton: In state?
  • 13:38 JinxCatmilton: yup
  • 13:38 IntelligentGlamorousHound: Ah, gotcha
  • 13:38 JinxCatmilton: went there for undergrad too
  • 13:39 ImportedSwiftPug: Oh, cool. My sister is there now.
  • 13:39 IntelligentGlamorousHound: My Cardozo email basically said "it's taking a long time and we have a lot of well qualified applicants. Please attend an info session or meet with an admissions counselor"
  • 13:39 IntelligentGlamorousHound: Wasn't sure if that's good or not
  • 13:39 nota999: Huh, interesting. Well I'd make sure to sign up for an info session or a meeting then.
  • 13:40 JinxCatmilton: do you guys think adcomms go to happy hour and trash our apps
  • 13:40 IntelligentGlamorousHound: Yea, I signed up for a couple things
  • 13:40 abjectchickadee: no but now i do @jinx
  • 13:40 nota999: I don't normally see them with a call to action like that. Most of the ones I see are basically just "Lots of applicants, decision machine broke, ask again later."
  • 13:40 IntelligentGlamorousHound: Ooh gotcha
  • 13:40 hellohello: @UnableGrouchyBat: oh sorry :(
  • 13:40 nota999: @JinxCatmilton: Probably not most applications, but from some of the stories I've heard in interviews and stuff they get some stinkers they absolutely talk about.
  • 13:41 ChuckRhoades: @hellohello: hmm. So difficult to feel where one stands with the HTE then
  • 13:41 nota999: (interviews on podcasts and the like, I should clarify, not admissions interviews)
  • 13:41 hellohello: @ChuckRhoades: i would send an LOCI for sure
  • 13:41 hellohello: if you havent
  • 13:41 JinxCatmilton: I just want to get rejected on a friday,, that way i can cry in peace
  • 13:42 ChuckRhoades: @hellohello: seems odd to send a LOCI without a WL
  • 13:42 nota999: Like, Dean Z has talked about a personal statement she read once that was basically just a racist screed, iirc. She said that that got sent around to other schools just to make sure that they knew what this person had written.
  • 13:42 abjectchickadee: @hellohello: idk the second round of HTE emails didn't ask for additional materials but the first one did
  • 13:42 hellohello: @ChuckRhoades: sorry didnt mean an LOCI more just like an update
  • 13:43 hellohello: @abjectchickadee: mine asked for an update. so i sent one lol
  • 13:43 nota999: I'd imagine that one got talked about in the office for a while
  • 13:43 ChuckRhoades: @hellohello: which HTE did you get
  • 13:43 abjectchickadee: yeah they changed the language for the next HTEs @Hello
  • 13:43 hellohello: alright
  • 13:43 hellohello: @ChuckRhoades: the first one
  • 13:43 ChuckRhoades: ahh both me and abject I believe got the second
  • 13:44 hellohello: ah ok. i think that one was different!
  • 13:44 abjectchickadee: i also don't know if anyone who got the second HTE has gotten a result yet? I don't think i've seen any
  • 13:45 blairwaldorf: is there an automatic username generator on LSD? like i feel like ive seen a lot of two adjective animal names
  • 13:45 hellohello: oh probs not, i think i was seeing people from the first one @abject @chuck
  • 13:45 NosyInvinciblePug: Yea, it auto made mine
  • 13:45 hellohello: didnt mean to create confusion lol
  • 13:45 blairwaldorf: haha yes there's one!
  • 13:46 jwabner: Does anyone else have more WLs than As and Rs combined? :))))))))
  • 13:46 backtochicagoplz: @jwabner: exclusively WLs lol
  • 13:46 VagueNecessaryWeasel: Guys- is Vanderbilt OK??? Anyone on earth heard from them???
  • 13:46 NosyInvinciblePug: I made the mistake of applying late.... So now I must wait
  • 13:47 nota999: @VagueNecessaryWeasel: Vanderbilt is a myth. Like bigfoot or Finland.
  • 13:47 jwabner: @backtochicagoplz: It's not a fun time lol
  • 13:47 brendog: a bunch of birds got into the vanderbilt admissions office and messed everything up i heard
  • 13:47 JimmyButlerDaGoat: brooooo is yale alive?
  • 13:47 brendog: same thing happened to yale
  • 13:47 nota999: @brendog: That would make sense since, like Vanderbilt, birds are also not real.
  • 13:48 backtochicagoplz: @jwabner: I just picture them as that "naughty naughty" meme where i'm trying to grab the decision as they're running away
  • 13:48 CEOofShotShooting: for some reason getting 3 responses last week led me to believe I would get at least some movement elsewhere this week
  • 13:48 CEOofShotShooting: the lie detector determined that was a lie
  • 13:48 GiantCrookedEarwig: cmon Yale I need to feel something
  • 13:49 nota999: ngl, in some ways getting the Yale R was a bit of a relief. I wasn't sure how I was gonna afford it without going into way more debt than I felt comfortable with, but they saved me from having to worry about that.
  • 13:49 FurryStormyGoat: Fordham anyone?
  • 13:50 NosyInvinciblePug: I'm still waiting for apps to go UR1 :(
  • 13:50 jwabner: @backtochicagoplz: I'm also just confused at the large gap between the schools I'm getting WL at. Like you'd think that a UCLA waitlist might translate to a St. Johns or UC Hastings Acceptance???????? But nope
  • 13:50 hellohello: @FurryStormyGoat: they had a wl wave today
  • 13:50 FurryStormyGoat: yeah just got the email
  • 13:50 hellohello: oh sorry :(
  • 13:50 backtochicagoplz: @jwabner: EXACTLY
  • 13:50 VagueNecessaryWeasel: Another Q for the group - do applications @ Duke always go through UR2?
  • 13:50 FriendlyTypicalGreyhound: is the UT A wave done
