This is totally out of curiousity, but what would be a good reason to appeal a rejection? 

Anyone?

like you get the rhodes scholarship after the rejection.
bottom line, there HAS TO BE a change in circumstances.
if not, then you are basically saying, "dear adcom, you screwed up.  now try again."

How "big" of circumstances?

obviously there is no one standard to measure the size of circumstantial changes...but i can list a couple of things, which if happen, would make me seriously consider appealing a rejection.  It' just me tho.

Appeal:
GPA increases from school's 25th percentile to above school's 50th percentile (it's your senior year...how?)
Feb/June LSAT increases by 3 points or more AND at least in the school's 25/75 range

Not Appeal:
Schools of higher rank accepted you.  I seriously don't see how they would give a sh!t.
Receive additional academic honors from college
