Chicago is surprising for sure. Did you interview?
Thanks to both of you!
And yes I did interview at Chicago, I think the reason I wasn't admitted was probably in part due to applying in January.
And I wouldn't really say I was surprised, except for Michigan that is, it's just interesting that it played out a lot more like my school advisor said then what some posters on tls would have you believe.
My approach was, I will hope to get in were my numbers actually deserve, and if I get any boost than that is extra on the top. So I'm real happy with H. I also have a somewhat unique app even without urm.
I think that law schools look at apps in a far more complete sense and with the mindset of who they have already accepted than the common all that matters is the numbers mindset on tls.
I think that is pretty clear when you look at the Harvard applicants page; for the last few days there are numerous people above both or one of the 75ths getting waitlisted. And someone in the Chicago applicant thread had a 4.0/180 and didn't get a ruby.
