Did you get any type of vibe that at this school leverage isn't as important as is a genuine interest in the school and a delicate financial situation? W&L seems like that type of place to me so I was thinking about going about it in that fashion (and cuz my leverage is only mediocre-same scholly at a school ranked slightly below but that scholly is a larger proportion of tuition). They honestly just seem more personal than most schools.
I got the vibe that he understood how the law school admissions process feels for students and that finances plays a big role. He seemed to like that I was so interested in the school and wanted me to come to admitted student weekend with my fiancee. I understand that they have a lot of offers out and that they can't promise too much to too many people. He seemed sincere and just really nice. That's the vibe I got.
Their yield is like 10%. That must be having a HUGE impact on their ranking
Only 2.5% of the ranking is selectivity. W&L remedies this by making it free to apply (I am assuming this was how it was in the past?). It is probably unlikely that it has a HUGE impact on their ranking.
