Anyone else find it strange that they are admitting via email but rejecting/waitlisting via snail mail? I was waitlisted via mail this past weekend and withdrew my app.

I'm sure this has already been asked, but for those of you who were accepted and received scholarships, was the scholarship info included in the original mail packet (with the acceptance letter and ringed binder) or did it come later?

Waitlist via mail. 166/3.69, so I imagine they're protecting their LSAT median.

Great school and gorgeous campus, but I hate the drive to South Bend and I've already gotten into schools that can get me just as far. I'll be withdrawing. Congrats to all the admits and good luck to my fellow waitlisters who choose to remain on the waitlist! :)

PS Love the avatar, Burgstaller!

Not necessarily. They're very holistic, so they might see something in you. I'm also protestant, so... ;)

Hahaha, I worked as a speechwriter for the nationalist Scottish Government for three years so...

Actually, Ireland and Scotland aren't too bad these days. We are brought together by our common enemy south of the border, ha.

LSAT median is 167.. so your 166 isnt terrible for them as all they need is a 166.5 to show up as a 167.. still very disheartening as im at 165/3.74

Median = middle value in an ordered set
Mean = average value

The only way they'll get 166.5 as the median is if there are an even number of students an the middle two average to 166.5 (ie, 166, 167).

A 166 then, is as helpful to maintaining the 167 median as a 150, so they'll go for a student they'll go for a reverse splitter with a good story and a strong desire to go to Notre Dame.
Plus, they'll need to admit far more 167+ than <167 in order to assure those who enroll have a median of 167

Still, I don't think a waitlist means doom, though, if it's your top choice. Think of it as an opportunity to show that you really want to be there.

I think that was my point unless my math is that terrible.. which is entirely possible.. i was just using the extreme example that half the class is under 167 and half is at or over.. my point was that I'm surprised if thats the only reason for the WL as it wouldnt change their median even if my extreme case were true.. again maybe I'm still messing that up
