And the first to reject me is... ummmm, Tulane?
« on: March 11, 2005, 03:13:34 PM »
Sorry, but this confuses me and makes me a tad paranoid about any outstanding apps.  I basically had the same application package at every school.

I have the distinction of having the highest rejection index (by .2) and highest rejected LSAT (by a whopping 9 points) at Tulane.  That's quite the feather in my cap.  I don't think I can buy yield protection for rejections (deferrals, yes, but not rejections).

They took a LONG time to request my LSDAS and then also to reject me. 

Did I accidentally check the Hispanic box?   ;)

They weren't in the picture anymore with the Baylor full ride, and now I almost gotta wonder a little bit if they knew that (it'd be a fair decision on their part, btw).

Any thoughts, comments, pity, "you'll get'em next time slugger"'s are appreciated.

Hey, a full ride at Baylor is great. Forget about Tulane. You say you want to practice in TX anyway so Baylor is a great choice for you. I would not give it a second thought. It is weird though. I must agree.  ???

I'm sure they matched you up to your LSD/LSN profiles; if you wouldn't have called them a bunch of Pope-loving mackarel-smackers, your app may have gone farther.

You'll get 'em next time, slugger.

Eegahh

I too am a member of the "Highest scoring reject" club, at Northeastern.  Maybe we should make up t-shirts and a secret handshake and stuff, and become a secret society dedicated to revenge at the schools that unfairly dinged us.

My favorite theory as to what happened is that one of the adcomm's was horribly wronged by somebody with the same name as me in the past, and is being vindictive.  Oh well, just wait until you get accepted somewhere way better than Tulane, then send them a nasty email.

Nice.  Wherever the club meets, we can ask the staff to randomly reject one person at the door.

Sure you can, at least until a Miami rejection with higher numbers shows up.  When that happens, we'll have a Rejection Rejection ceremony and throw you out.  Music will be provided by some sort of symphonic bells group, ding-a-ling.

Dude, you have an index of 3 at Miami.  Plenty of people with an index of 3 at Miami were rejected...
