I made that guess after the talks over at UW-Madison and people with my LSAT / GPA being waitlisted and they suggested yield protection. I suppose UWash is both higher in LSAT and GPA than I had realized which makes it less likely YP than at Madison. Not trying to have an inflated opinion of myself (not that I could after my rejections...) but just curious how it seems there are a few people out and about getting into T25 no problems but not into UW, Madison, American...

Well, if you know you'd take an acceptance then telling them might help (according to some others around here). I won't drop out before a decision but if I get waitlisted I probably would. And they might take a wholistic approach but it takes a lot of wholistic to beat numbers for any school... then again, maybe this attitude is why they haven't told me anything yet
