according to LSN i'm the most qualified reject at Miami, or at least i was last time i checked.  can i be in your sweet club?

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.

nice.
remove the stone of shame.  attach the stone... of TRIUMPH!

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



maybe it was just the highest LSAT score then

Yes, it was.  I think it was closer to 1,000.  Since 250 was just the suggested length and there was no max or minimum, I didn't think I would get dinged for that, but who knows?  Maybe I was filed under "Does not follow instructions well."

I bet that this had something to do with it.  I think most people that really want to go to Tulane stuck around 250. They probably figured you wouldn't end up there since you had a "long" personal statement and a high index.

Absolutely not b/c of the length!  First of all, give these people more credit, plus, my personal statement was well over 1000 words, and I was accepted with lesser numbers...It can be the app, not just the numbers, maybe they just didn't like what they read, i mean, is it not possible that there was an actual substantive reason!?

Of course it is.  Occam's razor.
