Waitlisted at pretty much every school I applied to, except Berkeley which dinged me.

Waitlisted, just below median GPA and above 75% LSAT. No Why Michigan. I'm not at all upset- I've narrowed my choice down to NYU, Columbia, and UChi. Good luck to everyone riding the waitlist!

No Why Michigan here. Agree with MnM22 that it was a very nice letter.

Did they just go ahead and waitlist the rest of their applicant pool?

Waitlisted. Wrote a whyWHY GOD, WHY?! Mich, numbers in profile.
LSAT > 75%;
50% > GPA <25%.
Very bummed. Michigan was one of my top schools.

Edited for emotional accuracy.

This is actually a legitimate question. I think it's another example of the fact that schools (especially mid-T14) are terrified about being the first one to fully commit to applicants. They're all essentially waiting each other out -- and making the applicants wait along with them.

At some point in the next few years, if this continues, the AALS is going to have to step in and impose some best practices. If it were up to the schools, they'd wait until August or September, and then expect everyone to pick up and move in a week.

Thanks buddy. This just helps to narrow things down for me, which feels surprisingly liberating.
