I think other people could potentially speak on this stuff as well, but there's not a lot of WUSTL re-applicants. Once you've seen how they do admissions/waitlists/schollys, you get a sense of their priorities. Crowing could probably relate to some of the stuff I'm saying. I was also a splitter last year (and this year i guess) so I understand the anxiety.
I also spent a lot of time looking into WUSTL when I was deciding whether to take a year off (i.e. their ranking rise, job placement, faculty bios etc..). They're really trying to transition from a regional powerhouse into a national school. And you can tell from their CSO efforts. Maintaining a good ranking is probably perceived as instrumental to this end-goal. And yes medians probably dropped everywhere last year, but WUSTL is the only T-20 school that completely dropped out of the top 20. There's no way that they don't making reclaiming their place in the T-20 a major priority. Good LSAT scores (like yours) are vital to achieving that.
Syracuse, I haven't been following up on TLS as much, how's your cycle been going? Is WUSTL still a possibility for you, or are you on to bigger and greater things?
