American, what's going on?
I think both of us are getting WL (YP). I'm 3.66/168, complete since 1/4 but considering how many people have heard since then, that is my guess.
+1 on the YP. I have been complete since early November as well. See this is when YP backfires.
I would have considered American had they gotten back to me earlier. Now that I have been wooed by much higher ranked schools (who actually give scholarship money), I am thinking I will probably just withdraw before they can waitlist me.
I'd like to know why, per LSN, AU turned down a 174/3.2, but took a 164/2.36, non-URM (no offense and congrats to that person, but just wondering) ... and why only five of their (self-reported) admits are LSAT >/= 168. http://american.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats
I wouldn't blame you for steppin', if you had other things lined up.
Along these lines ... I wonder to what extent YP'ing is beneficial for schools. Is it really more valuable, rankings-wise, for schools to protect their yields in such a fashion, than it is for them to endeavor to raise their margins by attracting people with higher numbers by throwing cash at them?
Would IU-B be proof of the benefits of the latter strategy? Because it seems they are rising in the rankings a lot faster than WCL. Does IU-B practice YP? Is IU-B down with YP?
