I gotta say, that's the only thing that would even remotely make sense.

clearly.  Zearfoss was like, "We already filled our Republican quota for this year.  Sorry Mr. Javert."

Republipwned?


The opposite.

What is the inverse of "republipwned'?

"rationalitypwned"?

I'm gonna side with flyaway - I think they're very, very worried about being overbooked.

agreed but i doubt that was the case with Javert's wl.

Based strictly on the numbers used by USNWR, a 180/3.61 is no more beneficial to UMich than a 171/3.61 (assuming they are not aiming for an improbable quantum leap of 2 points on their 75%), and is actually less beneficial than a 171/3.62.  The advantage of that superlative LSAT is greatest at schools with the highest 75% LSAT, like Columbia and Harvard.  Michigan's response to applicants with 172+ would, I'd guess, give us some insight into how they regard the LSAT as a predictor of LS success when USNWR isn't holding a gun to their heads, so maybe they don't put much stock in it.

Is this theory designed solely to console myself on my own waitlisting?  Probably.  Anyway, bummer Inspector.

I agree, and I think this is why I tend to get into more schools than people with lower LSATs and higher GPAs, but I get tend to get less money than they do at the schools we both get into.  Like the schools are confident I would do fine, so they let me in, but they don't feel the need to woo me as much, because I only help them with one number and not two.

True. Although having someplace to go does not preclude being sad about being WL to one's top choices.

I really hope you get in somewhere soon, JBruin. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
