I understand the reasoning behind sending out early rejections, and as an applicant I would apprecciate that. By getting a reject in December, you still have to time to apply somewhere else (perhaps more appropriate a target?) to make up for the reject if you must. I know we all apply to super-reaches in the hope the adcomm is having a good day, but do you blame them for wanting to get the easy rejections out of the way and off their desk? Let's put it this way- with my 160 LSAT, harvard woudl probably laugh at me and send me a reject before my file is complete.
