My wisdom is this: I have no wisdom.

Hi! For all those who are wondering more about me, I'm a Mexican-American URM hailing from a southwestern state. I attended a not-at-all highly ranked state school and was seldom involved in clubs. I do have a congressional internship under my belt, as well as quite a few customer service focused part-time jobs and a little bit of teaching experience abroad.

  • 20:35 DevilishSkillfulBracke: but if a phd got you waitlisted everywhere I applied...
  • 20:35 DevilishSkillfulBracke: lol
  • 20:35 mrdalloway: tbh though, i really wasn't expecting about half of the WLs I'm on...
  • 20:35 DevilishSkillfulBracke: not feeling great rn
  • 20:35 lshopeful2021: this might be wishful thinking/asking esp this late on a Friday but does anyone know if there's one doc or resource that lists average age of students at each school?
  • 20:35 mrdalloway: i mean, this cycle is so unpredictable. you never know!
  • 20:35 DevilishSkillfulBracke: lmao sometimes you know
  • 20:35 lshopeful2021: literally throwing a Hail Mary before painstakingly doing the research myself because I'm lazy
  • 20:36 WastefulDelicateEchidna: sorry, I don't--but I'd be interested if anyone does
  • 20:40 SpotlessReadyCapybara: @mrdalloway: do you mind giving more info on your shorts? sorry if you just said it
  • 20:41 lshopeful2021: @WastefulDelicateEchidna: will report back if I find anything!
  • 20:42 mrdalloway: @SpotlessReadyCapybara: no prob: phd, fluent in 4 languages, lots of WE, first-gen, low-income
  • 20:42 SpotlessReadyCapybara: OMG
  • 20:42 SpotlessReadyCapybara: go you!
  • 20:42 mrdalloway: thanks! :)
  • 20:42 mrdalloway: good luck to all of you!
  • 20:43 mrdalloway: my main regret this cycle is that i didn't write a gpa addendum...i've been out of college for ages now and didn't think the D and Cs on my transcript mattered much lollll
  • 20:44 mrdalloway: not sure it would've helped, anyway, though
  • 20:45 GiantCrookedEarwig: My main regret this cycle is that I applied this cycle
  • 20:45 mrdalloway: that, too
  • 20:48 CEOofShotShooting: My main cycle is regret
  • 20:50 lshopeful2021: ^^^ all of the above
  • 20:55 dhizzy123: I kinda regret applying this cycle, but I'm not sure I would have been as strong a candidate without the few years of work experience
  • 20:55 dhizzy123: So I probably would have had similar outcomes last cycle or two cycles ago
  • 21:03 hydrangea: same dhizzy
  • 21:03 hydrangea: i guess i sort of regret not waiting another year
  • 21:03 hydrangea: cause i'd have been able to save more money + also potentially have better outcomes
  • 21:13 MeJustChilling: I want to R&R but I never want to apply to law school ever again
  • 21:17 DemonicPriceyBullfrog: ^
  • 21:26 DevilishSkillfulBracke: LSAT scores last for 5 years right?
  • 21:31 EnchantingSeahorse: right
  • 21:40 MagnificentBrightHare: I cant wait to mentor the pre-law babies from my alma mater and talk like a grizzled old war vet when I tell them about the admissions cycle of 2021
  • 21:48 YoungPineapple: Any thoughts when these schools will respond to a February app? Got into my safety with some $ with a seat deposit fast approaching. Some of the schools are USC Notre Dame UT Vandy
  • 21:56 JosephMaldonadoPassage: vandy might never respond
  • 21:56 JosephMaldonadoPassage: theyre known to do that
  • 21:57 DRAVHEN: Law schools can be so rude
  • 22:00 SneakySeahorse: happy friday night yall
  • 22:14 YoungPineapple: Damn I didn’t no Vandy straight up ignores people - I thought they have to respond even if it’s a denial eventually?
  • 22:14 YoungPineapple: That’s savage
  • 22:14 YoungPineapple: Know*
  • 22:17 wizfan23: so is duke done now
  • 22:17 wizfan23: they haven’t had any movement in a week
  • 22:26 FreezingWomanlyBoar: i just visited usc law today and it was depressing for me
  • 22:30 Lawsimp: wait why
  • 22:30 BangBangBang52: yeah why?
  • 22:49 DevilishSkillfulBracke: WHY
  • 22:56 CEOofShotShooting: probably because its a nice campus surrounded by the most underfunded part of LA
  • 22:57 CEOofShotShooting: Its like a football throw away from Watts. LA doesnt take care of that area very well
  • 22:59 WastefulDelicateEchidna: On the USC thread, do we think they're WL people with 170+ scores to YP?
  • 22:59 nickiminaj: i have decided im too pretty for law school
  • 22:59 nickiminaj: thoughts?
  • 23:00 WastefulDelicateEchidna: I mean it looks like you've got some fantastic offers on the table haha
  • 23:02 FestiveEvasiveSnail: don't go to law school ur too thecthy @nickiminaj
  • 23:26 CorporateCatastrophe: Jesus these medians are not coming down.
  • 23:26 ItsGoingToGetBetter: yeah, next year's abas are going to be brutal
  • 23:28 CorporateCatastrophe: Hence why I am applying day 1 when the apps open. Hoping to jump the gun a little
  • 23:28 CorporateCatastrophe: sucks
  • 23:51 Torquatus: We salute those who have fallen today. (cannons)
  • 0:08 FierceGrievingUakari: Why did everyone get waitlisted at WUSTL and I got rejected?
  • 0:09 CloisteredPoliticalCoral: Hi everyone, is someone who has socioeconomic disadvantages considered URM?
  • 0:11 LsatTraintoClarksville: no
  • 0:12 OliviaLux: generally no! but it's something you can talk about in your essays to show overcoming adversity/disadvantage, if that applies
  • 0:13 OliviaLux: and then a few schools i think (either ucla or berk is one iirc) will explicitly ask for diversity addendums and define diversity in a way that includes socioecon background
  • 0:34 CloisteredPoliticalCoral: Thank you!
  • 0:56 UncertainElectricDolphin: Lmao love to have applied to WUSTL in november, interviewed a week after applying, and still being ghosted.
  • 0:56 UncertainElectricDolphin: This cycle is garbo
  • 0:57 UncertainElectricDolphin: At least I dodged the WL wave I guess.
  • 1:13 dkh2020: I've caught so many WL waves :(
  • 1:14 dkh2020: I hate this cycle
  • 1:25 ChuckRhoades: @dkh2020: i got 5 haha
  • 2:02 DropoutBear: 6A, 3WL, 2R
  • 2:02 DropoutBear: My Rs are Harvy and the big fish Yale
  • 2:03 DropoutBear: PENN, NU & GULC - WLS
  • 2:03 DropoutBear: More Rs and WLs are ever in my future
  • 2:19 JoeD: Not bad company to be in.
  • 2:31 UncertainElectricDolphin: @DropoutBear: I have 2A 4R 9WL 8MIA
  • 2:34 UncertainElectricDolphin: R from HLS, CLS, Berk, and Cornell, WL from Chicago, Penn, Michigan, GULC, UCLA, Texas, NDLS, GW, and UCI.
  • 2:37 DropoutBear: I just want them to get it over with
  • 2:37 DropoutBear: im waiting on 10
  • 4:27 ShrillWorkable: @UncertainElectricDolphin: wtf? Can’t believe you got waitlisted at GW
  • 5:23 JAlfredPrufrock: I went UR at BC
  • 5:24 JAlfredPrufrock: I wanna throw up 😭 it’s my absolute top choice and I will CRY if I get R’d
  • 8:28 Easytarget12: @JAlfredPrufrock: I also went UR. At 4:45 in the AM EST. What a strange time for that (presumably automated) process to occur
  • 8:29 JosephMaldonadoPassage: @JAlfredPrufrock: me too, i think that means we'll hear back either this thursday or next, depending on how easy the decision is
  • 8:30 JosephMaldonadoPassage: @Easytarget12: i assume penn state is your go-to rn?
  • 8:31 JosephMaldonadoPassage: cant beat that alumni network
  • 8:55 SplendiferousWhizzbang: Morning all!
  • 9:32 brownskingyal: got into NYU & NU, WL everywhere else. God work's in mysterious ways
  • 9:56 LickMyFartbox: HELL YEAH BABY UF
  • 9:57 LickMyFartbox: No clue how long thats been sitting in my inbox but **** yeah
  • 10:50 FriendlyDevilishCanine: any schools been known to send decisions on the weekend?
  • 10:55 eyeseeyou: Duke does @friendly
  • 10:55 inthetrenches21: UR1 since 11/30
  • 10:55 inthetrenches21: Why do I even bother
  • 11:06 FurryStormyGoat: Hey y’all I’m in
  • 11:06 FurryStormyGoat: Oops
  • 11:07 FurryStormyGoat: I’m new to this whole negotiating $$ packages thing, do y’all think I have a chance of negotiating a higher package with UCLA with one from GW
  • 11:11 BoysDoFallinLove: the worst they can say is no but i don't think UCLA sees GW as competition, which is what usually helps with negotiating. maybe a package from another CA/LA school, especially USC/berk/sls
  • 11:12 RollTheDice: Would UCLA see BC as competitive?
  • 11:14 BoysDoFallinLove: i wouldn't think so but only the school knows for sure. i don't think UCLA would want to spend extra scholarship $ to lure people away from boston or dc. different regional markets and regional non-t14 dogpiles
  • 11:15 BoysDoFallinLove: ucla is also king in LA whereas BC/BU/GW are not in their markets
  • 11:16 JoeD: It's Saturday! Don't forget to take the day off!
  • 11:17 FurryStormyGoat: @BoysDoFallinLove: yeah I figured as much, thanks though!
  • 11:21 BoysDoFallinLove: I really think I need to retake but I don't know what I'd do for a year ughhh
  • 11:21 Woodstock888: hi everyone!
  • 11:23 Easytarget12: @JosephMaldonadoPassage: It is. though that's dickinson campus, not exactly the same, but still very good especially as we have family in the town
  • 11:38 FriendlyDevilishCanine: any1 know anything about Cincinnati (the law school and the city)?
  • 11:39 FriendlyDevilishCanine: Just wondering how big of a legal market there is in the city
  • 11:59 TheSplit: what even is my life this week. my dog I've had since i was 10 died after my week of rejections and WLs :'(
  • 12:10 hellohello: I’m so sorry the split
  • 12:10 hellohello: That’s so hard having a dog die ♥️
  • 12:29 LiquidSolid: Cincinnati is a nice little city
  • 12:36 Panda: @TheSplit: So so sorry about your dog. I'm sure you gave him the best life.
  • 12:45 brownskingyal: Does UCLA see BU as a peer?
  • 12:55 Hedgehog: Do any schools do waves on weekends?
  • 13:00 ItsGoingToGetBetter: @Hedgehog: not waves but duke is known to send decisions on weekends (usually As)
  • 13:11 TheSplit: @Panda: thank you, they had a good life <3
  • 13:12 TheSplit: Thank you Hellohello. It has been hard but I'm just glad they aren't suffering anymore.
  • 15:03 SoreEliteZorse: @TheSplit: so sorry bud, can't imagine how tough your week must have been. hoping for happier days ahead of you
  • 15:03 DevilishSkillfulBracke: @TheSplit: sending some healing vibes your way, I'm so sorry.
  • 15:04 DevilishSkillfulBracke: also lots of love!
  • 15:12 ChuckRhoades: duke needs to not keep me ur3 for 2 months please
  • 15:14 ChuckRhoades: they have essentially done nothing recently right
  • 15:25 pizzalover1212: @Hedgehog: I see you applied to Hawaii as well and I am so confused as to why they take so long to give out decisions. I applied like a month ago. I cant imagine they get the same number of applicants that other schools do
  • 15:31 brendog: lol bc emailed me in the dead of night to let me know my app is now under review. i sent it in early january
  • 15:34 DelicateUselessFoxhound: @brendog: same mine came at 4:40am lmao
  • 15:34 DelicateUselessFoxhound: hope we hear this week!
  • 15:36 brendog: fingers crossed :)
  • 16:07 JAlfredPrufrock: @brendog: same haha
  • 16:09 JAlfredPrufrock: All I could think of was some exhausted adcom sending out emails at 4am cursing this godforsaken cycle
  • 16:17 YoungPineapple: 3.8 GPA 165 LSAT with a good major... do I have a shot at UT Vandy ND or USC this late in cycle
  • 16:17 YoungPineapple: K-JD
  • 16:24 MeJustChilling: I wouldn't apply this late in the cycle, but if you had to I would say their okay but not great
  • 16:24 MeJustChilling: they're
  • 16:24 MeJustChilling: "they're" meaning your chances. sorry what a mess of a response
  • 16:24 JAlfredPrufrock: Yeah if you haven’t applied yet you’re better off waiting until next cycle
  • 16:25 DevilishSkillfulBracke: USC I'd say not likley, if you look at who they've been accepting and WL latley
  • 16:25 MeJustChilling: 3.8 might be your ticket into places but yeah not this late in the cycle probably
  • 16:26 YoungPineapple: I'm an early Feb app but yeah its tough
  • 16:26 JAlfredPrufrock: What are your softs
  • 16:28 YoungPineapple: As a K-JD I don't have anything crazy on my resume - pretty average for a college student. But even with my 3.8 my GPAs been on an upward trend and I have a very unique major so I hope that can make me stand out more
  • 16:29 YoungPineapple: I already got into my safety with some good scholarship and the seat deposit is coming up so I'm at a loss for what to do if I don't hear back by the seat deposit in early April
  • 16:29 YoungPineapple: or I suppose I could retake in the summer but it would put me back a whole cycle :/
  • 16:30 DevilishSkillfulBracke: you've got a great gpa, a higher LSAT would def help you a lot
  • 16:30 MeJustChilling: Contact that school and say I'm waiting on other places can they push back their deposit date a little
  • 16:30 DevilishSkillfulBracke: as a splitter, Im v jelly because there is nothing I can do with my UGPA
  • 16:30 YoungPineapple: Yeah I know :/ pretty tempted to retake. I was PTing a 167/168
  • 16:31 YoungPineapple: on average
  • 16:31 MeJustChilling: But yeah. I understand why you don't want to wait a year but your options would be infinitely better if you could raise your LSAT like 4 or 5 points
  • 16:31 YoungPineapple: @MeJustChilling: Good idea for sure. I'll do that
  • 16:31 MeJustChilling: Ppl are getting into USC with 3.8 and 168 but not with 3.8 and 165
  • 16:31 YoungPineapple: Yup USC is looking rouuugh
  • 16:32 MeJustChilling: I think Vandy will look similar and UT worse if you're OOS
  • 16:33 DevilishSkillfulBracke: You think UT is looking worse?
  • 16:33 DevilishSkillfulBracke: really?
  • 16:33 DevilishSkillfulBracke: interesting
  • 16:33 YoungPineapple: Yeah. I did go to a good college in TX though so I think that might ever so slightly boost me a little
  • 16:33 YoungPineapple: I am OOS
  • 16:33 YoungPineapple: They have a pretty strict cut off around 167 for LSAT but a lot of waitlists around 165
  • 16:34 DevilishSkillfulBracke: ahh, thanks
  • 16:34 YoungPineapple: Barely any info on Vandy though
  • 16:34 WorkableDirefulUakari: i am the 3.8 168 person. exactly
  • 16:35 YoungPineapple: My thought though was near the end of the cycle and they have their 65% of TX residents filled in, maybe they'll be more lenient for out of state especially for more tuition $
  • 16:35 DevilishSkillfulBracke: @YoungPineapple: love the optimism!
  • 16:35 DevilishSkillfulBracke: Im also waiting on UT (its the dream lol)
  • 16:35 YoungPineapple: Just a wild guess haha
  • 16:36 YoungPineapple: @WastefulDelicateEchidna: Should I retake w 165
  • 16:55 Legally-Brunette: uhhh is it good that i survived the WUSTL wave
  • 17:04 MeJustChilling: who knows
  • 17:05 MeJustChilling: Seems like they still have a decent amount of As to give but also have barely given and dongs
  • 17:05 MeJustChilling: any
  • 17:49 Doggopups: oh yo just got a washu interview invite!
  • 17:49 Doggopups: after getting mich dong yesterday

  • 17:50 Doggopups: applied late jan for ref
  • 17:53 penelopeplease: i think someone sajd washu gives acceptances on mondays so hopefully that comes next week
  • 18:00 Doggopups: oh nice
  • 18:01 Doggopups: an A from them would make me feel so much better
  • 18:01 Doggopups: but honestly this interview invite has also helped haha
  • 18:16 Tylor378: I wonder if WashU will break their right angle trend. Currently a WL hopeful
  • 18:21 ChuckRhoades: Duke pls come back to us
  • 18:51 CorporateCatastrophe: Not me looking at these medians and taking the lsat for a 5th time even though I have a 169. fml
  • 19:19 lawtinaaa: Hi everyone- new here.. Do you guys know if a school legally owes us a response? Like because I paid an app fee and applied, the school has to accept me, reject me, or waitlist me?
  • 20:28 bogo: Lolll
  • 20:30 DevilishSkillfulBracke: @bogo: lolling your lol
  • 20:47 urleastfavteacher: i mean they will lol
  • 20:47 urleastfavteacher: schools won't ghost you
  • 20:47 urleastfavteacher: they'll wait until the absolutely last second to tell you
  • 20:47 urleastfavteacher: but they won't ghost you
  • 20:57 tofu-tofu-tofu: I got an email from harvard fin aid today
  • 20:58 tofu-tofu-tofu: they saw what I put in expected capital gains and basically went ".... you're not serious, are you?"
  • 20:58 tofu-tofu-tofu: and upon looking what I put, I determined I was indeed Foolish and Stupid
  • 21:38 ChuckRhoades: What did you put tofu
  • 21:48 Doggopups: gme and btc to the moon?
  • 23:13 UncertainElectricDolphin: Is that "you're not serious that you're going to get that" or "you're not serious that you think you'll get aid from us after getting that?"
