This is the wording of the NU ED contract. I contacted the adcomms to clarify and they verified this.

What a bunch of fascists.

Agreed, especially considering they are the only ones. But, what can you do. :|

Ironically, American will waitlist you. I'm dead serious when I say that your LSAT is too high for them and they will YP you.

Look at LSN if you don't believe me.

If I were you, I'd pick NU or UVA, figure out which one you liked more, and ED them.

I didn't bother applying to American, so I was unaware of their LSN stats. I'm shocked that it seems clear that they indeed do this. It's like they're admitting that highly-qualified students would not be interested in or satisfied at their school. What a completely counterproductive way to game the rankings.

The people who are YP'ed will get in with $$$ if they just send a LOCI. It's just a way for schools to gauge which of their applicants are actually interested. Most of the people who get YP'ed are applying to American as a safety, so the odds are pretty decent that they'll end up going somewhere else. Adding in the formality of a LOCI helps American weed out the applicants that aren't going to attend anyway.

What happened to trying to give the best applicants reasons to attend your school. It seems American has thrown in the towel.
