Thanks Sun, LSP's site discusses splitters and claims that there is an internal correction for splitters. Although it admits that the predictions are still a little pessimistic, the claim is that they are not very pessimistic.
I checked out LSN. It looks like last year the lowest non URM LSAT admitted with a sub 3.0 GPA was 172. There was one more non URM sub 3.0 GPA with a 176 LSAT. The year before there's a non URM at 2.66/175, but it looks like they didn't have to ED to get in.
Not a lotta data to go on. I just want the ED to be worth it, not a knee-jerk decision because NWern is the place for WE/engineering/splitters/etc.
