Does anyone think that a rejection at GW is indicative of results from BC and BU? I'm in at Fordham, but between the three, I'd go with the money.
As much as we like to analyze the law school admissions process, it's still a huge mystery. You can find general trends, but who knows how many people (that you hear from on this site) were borderline dings, but were waitlisted because of personal statements, diversity factors, additional essays, letters of rec, etc etc. Or how many were borderline admits but had great softs. It's tough to tell.
I don't think a GW decision is indicative of how other schools will interpret your application. That's the key. Interpretation.
Right, that makes sense, it's impossible to predict because you never know what other people have going for them. I do have very good softs though (2 years Teach for America, a Masters, public service heavy resume) so I was expecting a waitlist at worst. This whole process is so depressing because it really does come down to two numbers in most cases (or so it seems anyway).
Oh well, I'm crossing my fingers for BC/BU.
