Grading is so arbitrary. I don't think it's reasonable to compare GPAs from school to school. And I think adcomms' attempts to correct for grade inflation are worse than useless.
By the way, someone mentioned in this thread that people might be lying about their numbers on here and on LSN. Why would anyone do that? And I AM blonde with blue eyes.

thanks for the info. i don't know, but i find it hard to believe that a catholic/american rivalry will really be the talk of the town here in washington. any news about g washington, wash & lee, uva, w&m?
didn't they send out masive amounts of fee waivers? that plus their higher lsat standards may equal a rise in the rankings next year. but i agree that they're going to crash with reality in the next few weeks. i hope that means i get in!

I mentioned something briefly in the application, too. I was surprised when I got that letter. Although I certainly don't think of myself as disabled when compared with someone who can't walk or is blind, I just told them what they asked for in an essay. I don't imagine it can hurt your chances, so it can only help.
