Not sure if there is a thread for rejections. Was rejected today - just got the email and checked on Minerva.

Disappointed but wishing all of you the best of luck!

I am very surprised and really sorry to hear that but, given your stats, I will likely be posting on this thread soon 😕

I had health issues during my second year of university and had to late withdraw from 6 courses overall. Though it didn’t affect my GPA, I can imagine it probably didn’t help my application.

Thank you for the kind words and don’t lose hope unless your transcript is full of withdrawals too!

Did you consider including a letter of extenuating circumstances with your application to explain your late withdrawals?

I touched on it briefly in my essay but I honestly did not think it would greatly harm my application. I will find out soon enough for the other schools...

Did you guys receive an email informing you about the decision?

The email is an update notification. You have to go to Minerva to check the status of your application!

Sorry to hear about all the rejections coming through today- can I ask what reasons were listed on your letters?

No reason! I was simply told that the pool of applicants every year is very competitive, yada yada... Try again next year.

Nothing specific in my letter. I am not sure about others.

Sorry about your rejection. Your stats are competitive! Can I ask if they provided reason for rejection?

Got the email today

 

LSAT: 173

GPA: 3.92

 

Honestly, I was really surprised and have no idea why. I've gotten in elsewhere, so I'm just kind of baffled...
