I don't know what to make of it other than a lack of softs, low GPA, and an unprecedented number of qualified applicants.

George Mason is really the only odd decision you've gotten, but it seems like other low gpa got shitcanned there too.
People underestimate how bad being under 3.0 is. The only T17 to semi-reliably take people under 3 is Northwestern.
There are a couple of 2.95 types that have gotten into UVA so far this cycle. But for the most part you are right, NU is the only real sub 3 splitter haven and only if you have WE. Outside of GMU, EB's two big surprises for me are being straight up rejected from UVA and BC instead of being WL'ed.
Splitter pride has me pulling for you, EB. Hopefully NU or a wailitlist like Vandy or GULC comes through. Or if that doesn't happen, hopefully you get big money somewhere and then pwn at that school.
