In at Baylor- I thought I didn't have a chance (Chiasu gave me 5%)

Congrats! If I were you I would have been sweating the Ohio Northern thing. I've got a story too. I applied to Loyola's (New Orleans) Part-time because I thought it gave me the best chance of getting into the school...and it turns out that I was really right. I e-mailed the Dean of admissions the other day to request to begin school in the common law day division (Louisiana is wierd). Subsequently, I recieved a pretty interesting e-mail from the Dean. In this e-mail she tells me straight out that the only reason I was accepted to the civil law evening divsion is because it is the division they get the least app's for. She said that if I would have applied to the common law day division I wouldn't have even been waitlisted because the volume of applications they receive for that division is so high (and because of my suck-a$$ LSAT and GPA). I got a good laugh because this is probably going to be the school I attend unless someone on the admissions committee at Georgia State has a brain-fart. It was a rather amusing e-mail.

Are you being sarcastic? Because if you're not, I don't get it

Although my numbers are fine for Northwestern (171, 3.77), I have no work experience (applying straight out of undergrad) and I had a very bad interview (alumnus-conducted).  I was pretty shocked when I got the acceptance email (although, needless to say, very very happy!).  I'm thinking of calling the interviewer (who told me I would not get in) and telling him the good news  :D

This is too nice.  I would recommend that you wrap your NU acceptance letter around a brick and then throw it through his bedroom window at 2 a.m.
