Yield protection. One of the factors of USNWR rankings is selectivity, and another is yield (of the number of applicants admitted, how many actually matriculate.) By not accepting students who would most likely go somewhere else anyway, schools help with both of those numbers.
However, WUSTL in the past has shown no signs of practicing YP, so this would be a first.
