I am still really shocked at this, and it makes me terrified for RD with my numbers. Damn.
At least with those numbers I'm sure you'll have some other absolutely fantastic options.
Do remember that you don't know all that much just by the numbers- you don't know if they studied basket weaving, you don't know what school they went to, what their grade trend was like, if they are a good writer, or what their softs are. Relax. It is too bad for this person, but plenty of people with numbers similar to and even lower than his/hers (and maybe even this person with some luck and a good LOCI) will be accepted RD. Don't go freaking out yet, we are still more than a month away from the first RD acceptances!
I was a double major in Biological Sciences and Psychology. Bio is tough, Psych is ehh but certainly not basket-weaving! T70 public, upward GPA trend (4.0 for past four semesters). I cancelled my first LSAT so I guess that could be it (June 2010) but I don't have any disciplinary action. My softs are four years of volunteering during the summer, owning an incorporated business for four years, work three out of four years, and vice-president and editor of a publication so my softs definitely aren't bad. My PS was not risky in the least, a litte bit of very light humor but it was well-written.
Oh and there were no typoes, no mention of other schools, nothing that would scream moron. Looked it over a few times before and just looked at it again. I'm truly surprised. I really think that they are trying to raise their LSAT considering the chart that someone posted last night - the average accepted LSAT thus far (ED only) has been ~172.4 which is really high for ED!
To look on the bright side, this means CLS isn't entirely numbers oriented - at 75% GPA and 50% LSAT I'd be given scholly money if they were
