If you don't mind me asking, what are your numbers?
is there an issue with your application or C&F?
I'm not sure what constitutes an issue, but I can't think of anything serious.

I did safety apps. Those were the non-T13 I got waitlisted at. Heck, before this cycle and the apparent changes in their admissions priorities, Cornell would have been a safety for my numbers (yet are also one of my top choices). :/
Anyway, I appreciate the advice, but I feel like my numbers (LSAT), aspirations, and non-aversion to debt say that I simply don't belong at a non-T13 school. I want federal clerkships, corporate law (big law + in-house), and/or idealistically maybe even politics some day and I certainly don't want to throw away my opportunity to attend the best schools in the country. I would never be happy with myself if I didn't live up to some semblance of my potential. It's what I worked so hard for (my precious 170+ LSAT score). Plenty of people with my stats or even lower are in the T13 and I really want to be one of them. It's been what I wanted for years.
It's just... even if I somehow make plans for next year while putting off law school (and those plans are a big "???") and send out applications at the very beginning of the next cycle, I still don't know what I did wrong and need to correct from this cycle and I have a feeling adcoms simply won't tell me.
