Also, the Boalt rejection makes me suspect something was really wrong with his PS or LORs. Nobody with a GPA that high and a perfect LSAT score should be getting outright rejected from Boalt. They pride themselves on being more holistic, though, and putting more emphasis on the app. I could see Boalt saying "We're just gonna reject him if he can't get his (PS/LORs/other) right" while HSCC would all say "Well, his (PS/LORs/other) had problems, but we'll keep him around on the WL if we need someone to protect our medians..."
Long story short: Don't freak out about this one. Unless you just noticed you have a typo in your PS. Then, maybe freak out.
Agree with this. I don't think there are enough numbers to draw any inferences for anyone in particular to freak out. There are people with awesome numbers who got left out, there are splitters who were left out, there were URM's left out. Moral of the story: if you got a JR1, you're more likely to get in than not. But until the day comes, you'll be on the edge of your seat regardless of your numbers.
