Probably true, but at this point in the cycle, there probably aren't a lot of spots left. So perhaps no rejection per se; instead, just a long hold.
If Chicago were progressing at a reasonable pace, I'd expect this to be true (e.g. if you're still waiting at Mich, you're probably done), but I've had decently luck most everywhere else after submitting in early December, so I'm hoping that holds true for Chicago as well. Still, that's part anecdote and part speculation, so what I really ought to do is look at total admits right now vs total admits for all of last cycle, factoring in how many more (or fewer) people posted their numbers on LSN this year. Since I'm at work and probably shouldn't be doing that... kappycaft1? Or does that info already exist somewher?
Alright, just calculated this.
Total Admits on LSN:165
Median LSAT/GPA - 172/3.9
Mean LSAT/GPA - 172.1/3.87
Admits SO FAR on LSN: 102
Median LSAT/GPA - 171/3.85
Mean LSAT/GPA - 171.1/3.84
Proportion of LSN applicants 102/165 = 62% of Total Expected LSN applicants have reported acceptance so far
Sure looks like they dropped a point...
ETA: Scooped, but with basically the same results (I don't count waitlist admits)
