I would be the rejection that is way out up and to the right.

Anyone have any bigger anomalies?

Wow!! That is odd. Especially since you have been acceptted at most of your other schools.  So at least you know there is not something inherently wrong with your app.

sure you didn't send them the PS that starts off "I really want to attend Yale..."

Yeah.  I wondered if it didn't begin "If Texas does not accept me..."  I need to pull it off of LSAC and see, but I haven't had the inclination since the UT acceptance. 

I just happened to look at a couple of graphs the other day and this one still struck me odd.  I wondered if there were other similar experiences from other applicants.  Just thought it might be fun to see.   :)

Send them a copy of your UTex acceptance.

It has to be something like naming the wrong school in your PS. Otherwise I just do not get it. Did you sleep with someone's daughter or something?  ;)

Everything is possible.  I have seen even stranger cases.  Most schools accept only about 20% of the applicants.  They can be very selective and strange.
