REJECTED ALREADY

Postby mr.jones07 » Sat Oct 23, 2010 5:16 pm

I'm new to TLAS but have been watching and reading older posts for over a year now. It has helped me with a lot of questions. I applied to the Univ. of Arkansas in early Oct. and received a rejection in the mail today.

That was incredibly fast for a rejection, which means there must me a major flaw in my app I am assuming. I was below Arkansas index and out of state but my numbers weren't that bad. Does that mean my PS is terrible, or am I just overreacting on my first rejection. Rejections aren't supposed to come this early right? WHYYYY!!!!

thanks for your help

What were your numbers?

Have to gone to LSAC and reviewed your app? Maybe you accidentally checked that you had a conviction and then didn't explain it. If that all checks out maybe consider posting your PS in the PS forum, but I highly doubt that you would be rejected immediately for PS flaws

Applying early does NOT guarantee you admission!

What were your numbers?

Well, there you go. Were both your numbers below median? If so, I can understand why you were rejected. These last few cycles have been quite competitive.
