Just playing devil's advocate here (wouldn't be surprised if the same thing happens to me too because I have similar numbers), but is it not possible that your lack of enthusiasm for American (only applying because of a fee waiver, etc.) was evident in your application? Surely we should be happy about schools making decisions on factors other than LSAT/GPA medians?

I'd say their rejecting above median applicants is nothing more than a numbers game, not some kind of holistic evaluation. I've had other schools write hand written notes on my compelling public interest personal statement and resume, only to get a waitlist from a school that is supposed to be PI-minded?

Screams YP.

Same exact thing here (except I got perferred WL at Gtown). WL with a 167/3.72. Ummmmm awkward. YP probably?

Now when I tell people about my admissions cycle it's going to be "Yeah, I got in everywhere I applied, except UVA, Georgetown...and American."

Of all the answers I'm waiting on, for some reason this one has me on the edge of my seat the most - even more than the reach schools I'm still waiting to hear from.

Seems like the YP WLs are finally starting to come through. I can't imagine they'd wait on answering a December application until past the end of March, so I'm expecting to get YPed today or tomorrow. Won't it just arrive already?

LOL @ all of the YP WLs. Kind of makes me regret not being a jerk by listing their rankings drop as a reason for my withdrawal.

Same here. Asked for money (after they offered sticker and more to just see what they say) and was denied. Not surprised. Good luck to those who are waiting. Just make sure to do all your research before committing.

Lol, 38%... but what else could you possibly expect from a law school that competes directly with GULC and GW?
