um sorry to burst your bubble but you were definitely not YP...you are borderline...3.0 is weak.
Wow, no reason to attack the dude. He was not implying YP, but rather that through his personal statement he may not have exhibited his desire to attend, coupled with the lack of supplemental essays, and/or no ties to the area.
Thanks. I'm actually a she though, not a he. And yes, was not implying YP. I do have nearly 5 years WE in D.C. for global security think tanks, international research and WE. I will write the LOCI - they do have an interesting Global Legal Studies program and I have family in Madison and Milwaukee (East Coast transplant, Iowa native).
I wasn't attacking...but suggesting that WI takes their 'likelihood you will enroll if admitted very seriously' is the exact same thing as YP...it means they are protecting their yield, which in order to do forces them to assess whether you would be a positive or negative yield. Definitely write the LOCI as I think it would make a positive difference. I wasn't attacking anyone. BTW, I'm a 1L at Wisconsin and I know the new admissions woman if anyone has any Q's about the process or the school.
