the reason why people are getting WL'd from GM with numbers above their medians is, obviously, they think you will not attend. In addition, your numbers are not great enough for them to entice you with a scholarship into attending. That is why a buch of 167-169 people are getting WL'd. Your numbers are great, but not great enough to get enough $$$ for you to actually attend. This could also explain why 170+ applicants are getting in. Their numbers warrant the risk of offering big $ even though they still might not attend.
What do y'all think?
I think somewhere back in this thread there was a discussion about George Mason having very little money in endowments and such to offer much in the means of scholarships (which is when I realized I would probably get rejected/wouldn't attend). LSN seems to support that concept, with only a couple people reporting receiving money in the past few years.
Other than ^ I think that's fair reasoning.
