I don't know why you're consistently so opposed to doing this.  The OP received a legitimately weird decision given his/her numbers, which would indicate a possibly huge problem with the application package.  He/she has a lot of other applications pending, so it would make sense to try and take care of that problem at other schools.  Furthermore, what difference does it make now?  If it's just an issue of pride or courtesy towards admissions staff, I think that's BS.  Who cares what they think of you once they've rejected you?

my deadly sin is pride.  take everything I say on the calling about/appealing rejections with that knowledge and a large grain of salt.

I called the admissions office- Just let y'all know, you should definitely call if anything like this happens to you. Apparently it was an error and no decision has been made. Very odd. What a relief

lol, i'm right here.

i'm glad it was an error, but i'm pretty sure you would have been getting an acceptance letter regardless of your call.  no decision was CHANGED, but your situation was clarified.

anyway, i'm obviously just trying to save my own position.  clearly, it paid off that you called in this situation...but I still maintain it's not a good course of action for everyone.

OOC, are you seriously considering attending if you are accepted?

Who would you call?

Emory - although it's probably my GPA that did me in.  I just thought that my LSAT was high enough to compensate for them.  I was wrong  :-[

Waitlisted at American today.  I was withdrawing anyway as DC isn't for me, but it still stings a bit...doesn't bode well for Indy-Bloomington :(
