Now I have to deal with the posibility that I lack 'zing,' or perhaps that I showed interest in international law while the school admits they don't have anything to offer me in that department. Maybe another explaination is that they saw my posts here and decided not to accept me because of it. It's interesting to see the degree that Michigan monitors forums like this on a regular basis.
Uh, I really didn't get "them monitoring forums on a regular basis" out of that blog entry.
Yea, I didnt either. But it does seem to me like some of this is just BS. Michigan blatantly YPs and its clear to see. I am not saying my waitlist was a YP, but there are other members on this forum that I think Michigan clearly YPd. To deny it at all is just BS
She didn't really deny it as much as she basically said they practice it in a roundabout way. "Not fitting in" seems like code for it.
I mean, look at LSN. What makes all those 169s "fit in" and most of those 172s-173s not fit in? If the dispersion of yellow and green dots was a little more random, I'd be inclined to believe her. But it's pretty clear cut, and I don't really get how people can argue against it.
Ha, I just checked out LSN. Wow. I'm pretty sure my waitlisting wasn't solely YP, but I guess virtually everyone 169-170 with a 3.7 or above has a shitload of zing.
