If the admissions dean of a major law school suggests that people are taking the application process to a place that it need not be taken (emotionally/fetishtically/psychologically/whatever), I think she'd be one of the people whose word we ought to take.
Not really sure how that follows; an admissions dean isn't a psychologist. Regardless, I'm not saying she was inaccurate in labeling the behavior neurotic, just that it seems out of character for her to be that blunt/negative.
