Similar numbers. I'm from Chicago, and it's absolutely my #1 choice, but I didn't write a Why Chicago.


I have the exact same numbers as Plato and I wrote a Why Chicago. Although I'm 21 and a K-JD so I think I needed the boost.

BTW sorry I haven't been very active in updating this thing...

Um guys, why did I just get an unsolicited fee waiver? My LSAT is no where near their 25%. I'm wondering if they meant to send it to someone else. So if you have scores in their range and did not get one, I'm sorry I took your fee waiver. I didn't do it on purpose, I swear :(

I am currently stalking last year's thread to figure that out. Looks like first round invites went out 11/1 last year but applications started going "Under Review" a lot earlier than this year so who knows if that'll hold.

Yeah, I started digging through that thread and noticed the same the thing. So who knows if we just went under review later and they still plan on interviewing near the beginning of the month, or if we really are going to be waiting til mid-end of november

IIRC people last year were going UR1 in like mid-September, but that's a great data point to have!

For the people that dig through the thread, was it more that everyone who submitted earlier went UR, or that some people stayed complete for a while longer?

Hard to say. It seems like the first wave of interviews were sent to the earliest applicants, although some did not get interviews.

+1

Also, I stalked last year's thread for a while and I'm here to drop some (non-exhaustive) knowledge.

Interview invites:
Wave 1 - 11/1
Wave 2 - 11/28
Wave 3 - 12/20
Wave 4 - 1/17
(Got too bored of clicking through pages at this point)

For those of you who have applied already did you add hours worked per week to each job/activity on your resume? They ask for that on the submission instructions. I almost missed it. Mine doesn't currently include that info, I should probably add it right?

yes, you should follow the submission instructions. don't overthink hours/week. if it varied, put the general range.

FWIW, I put it on my general resume because a few admissions blogs recommended it, so it might be worth just adding it for the resume you're submitting to everywhere else, too.
