I have no expectations of getting into Michigan, but my purpose was to first find out whether they roll EVERYONE that didnt get admitted ED into RD or if people that have zero chance get rejected right away. If its the former it tells me nothing, if its the latter it would make me feel better about my chances at the GW's and the WUSTL's of the world. Unfortunately u people's helpful (if snarky) responses tell me I can't read anything into it. Not feeling good about this cycle.
I think you've got your panties in a bunch and I don't mean to get into a cyber argument. What I was saying was that your stats were not the 140 and 2.0 you were alluding to because then you'd have no shot at any decent school unless you also happened to cure cancer or something.
The 2.6 GPA is tough but not undoable, especially with a 172 LSAT score. I think it more depends on what your transcript says about you and how solid your addenda are. If you started off with a shitty freshman year and then made up for it the last three years in some way and had an awesome senior year, then I can see an adcomm appreciating the fact that you're maturing. If you have some WE or you're a single mother (sorry don't know if you're a dude) then they might understand that you had other preoccupations. Whatever it is, just make sure that your addenda are solid. If you didn't submit addenda, then you really should take the time now to write up some really solid ones and get them in.
Best of luck. I'm not on here to criticize anyone or to tell you that what you want can't be achieved. I'm all for you pursuing whatever it is you want to pursue. However, you shouldn't think that everyone is out to getchu or have an attitude with everyone because you feel your chances are dismal.
Also - to your question, they roll everyone. Mostly, they roll everyone left over when the summer class is full.
