So now we wait... 2020 acceptance

Recommended Posts

Applied, all supplemental materials in. Waiting for those sweet acceptance/rejection notices now. How many do you think go out in December?

Last year it seemed like it wasn't a huge number in December, but that impression is necessarily compromised by the fact that, of course, not all applicants are on this board!

I believe the first acceptances were December 21st, which was a Friday last year - so perhaps the 20th this year? My November LSAT becomes available on the 19th, apparently, so I hope they wait til they get that. ;)

The second round of acceptances seemed to go out In Mid-January.

Last year you could apply on the last week of October, where as this year the first week of November. I don't know if that will delay anything, but it may. One less week for consideration. Hope you aced the November LSAT, or at least did well enough to get in, but not so good as to bump me out.

Hah! Same I guess!

I think I could be anywhere between about 157 and 161 depending on my luck. 3.93 B2 though so I'm hoping my marks will drag me across the line... :)

Not many get accepted early on. The bulk of acceptances will be March-May I imagine. I got accepted on the 16th of January last year and there was only 12(?) of us at that point. That being said, I wrote my only LSAT in November of that year and my app was complete the second week of December and in evaluation so pretty quick turnaround time is possible.

Always feel free to shoot me a message if you have any questions.

    • I think the reason why there are vague and mixed answers is because it really depends on the student committee and the people interviewing you. They might factor your undergraduate grades or not even consider them. It really depends. But, I definitely do think that firms have hired people with bad undergraduate marks because what matters at this point are your law school grades and experiences. The law faculty has already 'vetted' students when they admit them. During my interviews, I saw them flip through my undergraduate transcript, but they didn't ask me about it at all even though I had a few withdrawals and a declining GPA. They looked more at my law school transcript and asked me about the courses I took in law school.  I'm not on any student committee, but my understanding is that while firms request all your transcripts, they focus on your law transcript over your undergraduate transcript. It might be something a student committee considers as a tie-breaker between two candidates who are equal in all aspects. Take note, this is all speculation from my end.
    • Yes. 100 percent true and has happened. Bad undergrad grades much more likely to be a non factor than any sort of determining factor.
    • I’m also an international applicant, I heard back this week. I’m not sure if there is a general trend, and it’s hard to tell because proportionally most people who post here are domestic 
    • When I was going to recruiting events in the UK, some of the best ones that I got were portable chargers, headphones, cardholders, coffee cups, and travel bottles. Highlighters, sticky notes, flags, and notebooks were also highly sought. One of the worst ones (in my opinion) was a chalkboard mug. It was handy, but it was really useless and unnecessary.
