Why are there no rejectioins on LSN?

Postby Neatrends » Wed Dec 07, 2011 5:40 pm

I'm looking at the this cycle's graphs of the t14 on lsn, and there are barely any rejections or waitlists, why is that??

Too early in the cycle to start dinging people.

So far this year? Because there have been hardly any rejections or waitlists so far. Schools are just starting to send out decisions.

Early in the admissions cycle most schools generally send out acceptances. Waitlist and deny decisions come later.

The above points, but I've also noticed that it seems a decent amount of ppl leave it blank if they get rejected

There are exceptions to this perhaps compassionate spirit, though

Meh, if you're going to reject me... do it as quickly as possible imo

Yea, I also share this sentiment. I think I'd rather take a harsh rejection sooner than a nice rejection later.


I guess this is pretty self-evident, but there's no reason to reject people this early. Let's say the post-Thanksgiving applications are just atrocious--would you rather accept all those borderline cases you put aside before or become UIUC?

Elaborate on the UIUC part please.

Scandal, inflated numbers, think back to Villanova. You get the drift.

UIUC had to fake their publicly released medians because the real ones fell significantly (LSAT fell 3 points I think). They generally use a lot of splitters to maintain their medians, so it's possible that early in the cycle they denied too many high-LSAT scorers and so were SOL we they realized their median was gonna fall. The point is, admission deans want that flexibility because applications really can go any which way and falling medians can end a career quickly.
