Wow, I really can't believe you got waitlisted in the first place.
My numbers are quite a bit less than yours.
My undergrad GPA is horrendous (between 2.5 and 2.75), but that was quite a while ago, with lots of work experience between now and then. My LSAT is a few points below yours as well. (In self defense, I only studied for a few weeks as I initially planned on just applying to the two in-state schools where I live).
Yet we are both on the same waitlist (I didn't apply to PT), which, if the SMU email is to be taken at its word, is unranked.
Maybe my PS, LORs, or resume helped me more than I initially thought? Either way, this is strange, strange behavior from what would appear to be the law school acceptance norm.
