I applied last year, the year that gave schools the numbers they have now, with a 174/3.2 and was basically dinged across the board for T14 except for NU and Georgetown (and in off the waitlist at NYU). I didn't apply to Cornell and I got waitlisted at every school except HYS and UCB, but was then dinged.
I think that schools still prefer people with lsat/gpa that's near their medians, though it's entirely possible that some of those waitlists would have turned into yes's if I had continued to express interest.
That's strange. Just by looking at LSN, you can see people with around your GPA but lower LSAT who nonetheless got into Michigan, Duke, and some other T14 schools. I wonder why you were rejected. Maybe schools just figured you'd get into one of the T6 anyway?
