I thought my strong soft factors would clinch at least a defer or waitlist. But, as I found out today, if your numbers are below their averages then there is little hope.

Hey ack!, why did you hide all your apps?

The idea is that final decisions can be posted, while pending apps remain hidden. This way I can contribute some helpful information to others on LSN without worrying about snooping adcomms, as they could never be sure that I had applied to their school. A very silly combination of paranoia and almost certainly faulty game theory.

Yeah, no acceptances for me.  Life sucks when the first response you get from the pile of law school apps you sent out is a ding.  I'm bitter, so screw Georgetown, for not looking past the numbers.  No cutoffs, my a$$.

"This is to inform you that after careful consideration of your file, the Committee on Admissions is unable to approve your application for admission to the Law Center for the Fall of 2006.
Last year, we received almost 12,000 applications for the 575 places available in our first year class, and each year the quality of our applicant pool continues to increase. Consequently, the Committee has been forced to make the difficult decision of turning down many well-qualified candidates who have the potential for success in a law program.
We appreciate your interest in Georgetown and wish you success in in attaining your academic goals."

hang in there summergirl. many of us will join in with the reject.

i never knew how much a reject would upset my ego until i got my texas reject. even when expecting a reject it still sucks to get it.

i expect that today i will add my name to the list of gulc rejects. sucks.
