I just looked up lawschoolnumbers.org, and while I was surfing around I clicked on someone's name and viewed their profile because they're numbers looked almost identical to mine. 166/3.4 (my GPA is slightly higher).

Now I don't presume to know about her essay and recs, but I think mine were pretty solid.She's in all over the place, Columbia, Harvard, Northwestern, the works. No rejections, not wiat lists. I, on the other hand, am getting waitlisted or rejected by these schools.I've always considered myself a pretty liberal guy and have supported AA, but I must say that being on this side of the equation sucks.Feelin gloomy. Should I wait and see if Bush makes AA illegal? I've always despised American conservativism but at this rate of anger I'll be a Republican by 30.
