"many schools inflate their “selectivity” by giving fee waivers to applicants who have no chance of getting in. NYU is reported to have pioneered in this arena, but many others have followed suit." http://www.utexas.edu/law/faculty/bleiter/rankings/guide.htmlreally. are we? perhaps I am crying over spilled milk about the waitlists. or Hastings being the first school i applied to and the last to let me know (ya HEAR me?
