I know this has been discussed before, but I have to say that I disagree with Michigan. I would say that Michigan is notorious for not dropping their panties for any applicant who meets their numbers threshhold. If you are not a good fit (as they see it), they will not accept you no matter what your numbers are.

according to lawschoolnumbers, last year Michigan waitlisted people with 179/3.97 (a friend of mine), 179/3.79, 176/3.84, 173/3.75, 176/3.86, 173/3.8, 173/3.95, 176/3.62, 174/3.82, 177/3.74, 173/3.73, 173/4, 176/3.6, 176/3.7, 175/3.8, 172/3.94, 177/4.05, 174/3.8, 177/3.71, 175/3.6, 174/3.65, 173/3.79, 173/3.8, 174/3.75, 176/3.92, 175/3.8, 173/3.94, 173/4, 175/3.86, 173/3.91, 178/3.85, 173/4.1, 175/4.04, 176/3.85, 177/3.75, 175/4, 177/3.9, 175/3.97, 175/3.98, 178/3.8, 173/3.95, 175/3.94, 176/3.69, 178/3.71, 176/3.69, 176/4.14, 172/4.

They just weren't good enough fits for Michigan - these applicants look more like the Yale/Harvard types, and who wants THOSE types muddying the down-to-earth atmosphere of Michigan?

It's all about character, not numbers. :lol:

I bet the best way to exhibit your fit is pandering to them in a bunch of Mich-tailored essays

Boston College. Many were accepted there with LARGE scholarships after being waitlisted with above 75% #'s.
