It seems as if these schools value a high gpa over a high lsat. 4 years of excellent grades should count far more than how well one does on a single day on a given exam!

Can't splain that. But you get into lots of great schools, so don't sweat it

This statement is flawed for so many reasons. I was going to list a few of the many, but it's not even necessary.

Come on guys. A lot of these are obviously YP. If you have above average #s and were WL but would truly be interested in attending, send a LOCI. If you wouldn't then realize the school is just protecting itself and move on to the bigger and better places you might be interested in.

Yes. Having great numbers and being dinged is interesting. Having great numbers and being waitlisted is not. If you really want in, just write the LOCI.

Applied 12/7, complete 12/10 1st IR 12/17, 2nd IR 1/21.

And for the record, I'm not hating on UMN for practicing YP. It's just disappointing to work hard and put together the best application you can, and not have it pay off. It's not UMN's fault, it's the screwed up ratings game.

IIRC someone earlier even said they got an acceptance via phone call and then a WL email. So it might be a glitch.

Ha, got it. As long as they don't start sending me emails about xxx webcams and free prescription drugs online, I'm fine.

If accepted to Minnesota, it would be wise to avoid withdrawing other applications or denying other acceptances until this situation is corrected.

Got the "decision sent" status today after IR 1/7, but still no email. Should it really take more than just a few minutes for me to receive an email after that status is changed? Needless to say I will be a very unhappy dude if in a couple hours I get dinged or WL'ed via email.

Sorry for all you guys experiencing communication problems from UMN's office. I hope I won't be joining you!

Mmm sorry I hate to be the one that says this...but my status checker says Admitted - Congratulations!! 01/26/11 (even though it updated yesterday...)

and I got a call too

Edit: My point was I think it might be a WL or ding :?
