A friend of mine with comparable numbers got her finalding in a long series of dings this past week. I used to thinkthat I had some understanding of the admissions process, butnow I'm inclined to believe individual success or failure inthe admissions game is governed solely on the quantity of alcohol imbibed by the admissions officers immediately priorto the reading of each application packet.Consider this:Me - 3.30 UGPA, B.S. Computer Engineering, GA TechLSAT: 154, 165mediocre LORs, Feb filing dates, strong PStatement.Friend -3.85 UGPA, B.A. British History, Small Liberal Arts SchoolLSAT: 158strong LORs, Dec filing dates, less strong PStatement. Her PStatement was about her volunteer work with retarded kids, and how that tied into her desire to practice public interest law. I just wrote about rolling in the bling as a patent attorney. We both applied to a broad range of lowish Tier 1s, and Tier 2s.I was accepted into all of the Tier 2s, UConn (with $$), and waitlisted at a couple of top 30s. She got her final ding from Georgia State, a school that admitted me 2 weeks after my app was completed.It's sad, really.
