I don't know if I should be happy or not. I had never really considered attending (I wanted to avoid Houston) but were I accepted I might have thought otherwise. I'm still waiting to hear from SMU, but apparently they're not going to be sending letters for some weeks. I might have to put a deposit down somewhere else.My numbers are 2.63 LSAC GPA and 162 LSAT. EDIT: Oh, and my status online still says "file in review".
For instance, I don't know why this guy got rejected at Houston:http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/display.php?cycle=0405&user=hunterhoganBut if he were black, would they still reject him? I doubt it. I'm undecided about the merits of AA. It doesn't affect me personally very often. However, I'm not convinced that the policy achieves it's goals as far as law school admissions is concerned.
I think there's another thread where you can give your opinions on AA. And if you actually went through every waitlisted person on Houston's profile you would find that a few blacks and Hispanics are on the list. Houston is full. Besides a lot of minorities don't apply to Houston, the school is predominantly white. So the AA argument is mute. Same thing at Baylor.
