I think its because I voted for John Kerry

I think I made a serious mistake when I joined lawschoolnumbers by using my real name as my username. I had my school preferences ranked and both Chapman and Texas Southern were at the bottom. I dont know if it had anything to do with the rejections but I have decided to change my profile so it cant be identified by the adcomms. I can see why a school would want to reject someone with higher than normal numbers for their averages if they are the last of the applicant's choices.

Are you serious?! Man that makes me a little nervous, Maybe I should mess around with my profile to make it seems a little bit more unanimous. ?!! What do you all think??

Anonymity is preferable to unanimity in your situation.

rejected via email? thats kind of low class in my opinion

No, I just never got the "Congratulations!" email that all the acceptees got by the deadline in my status check on the UH website.  So when I had no email by the 25th, I knew I'd get a snail mail rejection.

i've applied to 13 schools.  lucky 13, eh?  not quite.  many of them were reaches and a few were even less likely  :D  anyway, 5 of the 13 have sent me rejections.  i'm out at depaul, loyola chicago, american, hastings, and as of today, fordham.  with my numbers none of these rejections comes as a surprise.  it would have been nice, however, if the rejections were interrupted with an acceptance or two.

oh well.  i'm still expecting my dings from ut, loyola la, and cardozo. 

There are  a lot of schools you could apply to in NYC or close to it that are in your league. Touro is the first one that comes to mind, but I know there are  adecent amount more. Good luck though either way.

thanks for the info.

i'm going to see what comes of the apps i have out right now.   i have a back up list in case of emergency but i'm hoping i won't need to use it.

That's a good thing to have, I sort of had one last year.  My only advice would be to start using it now, not later -- applying late in a cycle works at some places, but not everywhere.

Let me get everyone caught up with the cycle for the Captain so far...
Maryland, dated 1-6-06
DePaul, dated 1-19-06

Maryland was a waste of fee from the start but I didn't expect it from DePaul.

i may send something out to cali western this week.  i just need to do more research on the school because i don't know much about them.  my interests lie predominantly with public interest, constitutional, and int'l/human rights.  i need to see what some of these other schools offer in terms of those areas.
