How so? Mike MS9's latest blog post seems pretty positive for concerned applicants to top schools.
The 'top law schools receiving even more
apps than previously thought' bit
More does not necessarily mean better
+1. I'm sure there's a slight bump in high stats + high quality apps, but 1) the number of people with really great LSAT/GRE + GPA combos can't be TOO high in the first place so any increase this year would not completely shut out people who are generally strong candidates and 2) with the interview and the essays, people really have a chance to shine beyond or in addition to their numbers! If you're here on TLS I'm betting you guys have polished every aspect of your app that you could possibly control (LSAT/GRE included) and have a great chance for success. Also, an HLS acceptance doesn't determine your self worth nor will your long term success hinge upon it. It's all about the attitude and work ethic, and I'm sure you guys will do great things in your future, HLS or not.
