Dinged via snail mail today.
I was suspect since my status checker changed to "You should expect to receive a decision letter in the mail in two to four weeks." last week and I had not received the phone call. Letter arrived fast to Texas though. My first rejection.
I am pretty sure you weren't going to attend GMU even if you're admitted. Have fun at UT or Columbia.
I just didn't think GMU was big on YP. Past year's graphs on LSN certainly don't seem to show too much of that, so it was just kind of surprising to me.
To my knowledge, GMU do not practice YP. If you're qualified, you're in. Here, "qualified" means they like everything about you, not just your GPA and LSAT. The reason you were rejected may very well be because:
1. you wrote a crappy personal statement
2. your recommender stabbed you in the back
3. or you drew a picture of yourself giving everyone the "middle finger" on your LSAT writing sample.
But hey, the point is: with your GPA and LSAT, you can get into UT and Columbia. Don't be discouraged by one rejection.
