In light of new evidence, adehmar is wise and has made the right choice in spite of his evil ways.

What evil ways! Court recorder...? Wasn't...? It was! That was STRICKEN! I object.

Objections are worthless in this court.

Perhaps they are trying to protect their yield?  I actually don't believe in this "yield-protection" phenomenon, but Mkashley has everything Stanford likes - work experience, a super-high GPA, and an LSAT score 3 points above their 75th-percentile.  Stanford is unpredictable, I guess. 

I'm not sure about yield-protection.  They like interesting people.  I doubt if I'm all that interesting, especially considering that they get the best of the best of applicants with technical backgrounds.  OTOH, if you sort by index in lsn, most people that didn't get in got WL'd.  That leads me to believe I got in now because they need to raise their medians.  Then again, who cares as long as I got in!

More importantly...are you going? 

My mom says I'm interesting, so maybe that's why I got in :D.
