All you babies crying "YP", shut the fuck up. If you were YP'd at Michigan you probably got into some fantastic schools. Quite frankly, I have no sympathy for you. And if you didn't, then you probably were not YP'd, your application just sucked.
Sorry... I feel better now.
whatever man. not really looking for your sympathy. speaking as someone who was YP'd at michigan but in at CLS and NYU (and still holding out hope for HLS), i can say that michigan was actually an attractive school to me, and if i'd gotten in with $ it would have been a strongly appealing option. the fact that i'm not going to have that option because i didn't miss enough LSAT questions to have the zing that dean Z is looking for is distressing to me. and no, i'm not going to apologize for the fact that i find it distressing.
yes, i'm in at CCN and i'll be fine, and no, i don't feel sorry for myself, nor do i expect you to. doesn't change the fact that it's bullshit, and that an option i would have loved to have is shot.
Honestly I don't see how it's bull****. Michigan is trying to find the best students to fill its 2013 class. You (and myself, and my others) obviously didn't convey to UofM that we sincerely wanted to attend. If a student with stellar stats gets WL'd and truly wants to go to UofM, they can always send a LOCI to Michigan and tell them that they really, honestly want to go there (even if they got into the Columbia's and NYU's of the world).
Also, Michigan needs a way to control the size of their class. That is the function of the waitlist -- schools admit applicants at different times, then they see which acceptees will matriculate, and then they can dig into the WL.
