I hope you're right, goosey--I consistently look at my "softs" and cross my fingers. I have less-than-stellar stats myself, but just keep in mind a couple things...the adcomms aren't necessarily looking at who they think will succeed in law school and admitting those with promise. Lots of people have reasons for their numbers and have proven themselves in some other capacity. It is first and foremost a numbers game, and then it is a diversity game (not necessarily in terms of ethnicity, but making sure different experiences are represented), and somewhere waaaay down the line is it, "can this person succeed and can we take a risk on this person, by lowering our medians/enhancing our class in X way?"
I'm not saying this to bring you down (I'm certainly hoping for some splitter love this cycle), but just to encourage you that they aren't rejecting YOU, just your numbers and that this based on a lot of issues--not excluding the USNWR rankings.
