Thanks guys. I try not to pay too much attention to status but was a little surprised myself. The 3.78 is from a seven sisters' school in Comparative Literature, I'm bilingual, certified in mediation, have worked in legal aid with refugees for a year and another year in general legal assistance, been a human rights observer for international elections, am writing a book on genocide with one of the most wanted peace activists in East Africa... plus I'm Catholic, and spent a year doing Jesuit Volunteer Corps (it's a Jesuit school)! I just don't get it. Well whatever, because I took myself off the waitlist immediately and will most likely be going to Cornell or Boalt. But it does make me question the system. Do you think it was yield protection?
