Lol. But seriously, I am curious to see if they messed up their medians because they use splitters so heavily.


Penn uses splitters heavily? How would you say it compares to V? I'd prefer to ED Penn instead of V, but it seems like a bit more of a gamble whereas a 171+ is like, an autoadmit at V.


Haha, I've never seen someone actually mistake Penn State for Penn before this moment.

Didn'tgetttehjoke?

Nice to see SH trim some fat. Now some more would be welcome.

Wow, 23% decline from SH. I guess Im not surprised but nice to see that their scam isnt going as well as the brochures indicate.

Wow.

ASU

163 (162)
3.65 (3.62)

ASU has increased median LSAT and GPA both of the last two years...not sure anyone else has done that...

Any word on BC, BU, UW, or Emory anyone? I know UW jumped last year...can they do it again?



I wonder how W&L so badly overshot its target class size.

Judging from the applicants thread from this year, W & L threw out serious amounts of cash this past cycle. I feel like applicants took them up on it. Also, they randomly were ranked in the top 25 this year, which (unfortunately) means a lot for applicants.

Yeah, they use splitters heavily. I'm not sure of your numbers, but a 170+/3.4+ ED is practically autoadmit at Penn.

I don't see the money flowing this upcoming cycle at majority of places that did that to protect medians in '11/'12 cycle.

Yeah, it will be interesting to see what happens. However, I think any school that thinks last year was an exception is ignoring reality at great peril.

When do schools usually put up the new incoming class info, anyway? I keep checking this thread and their sites like a crazy person, daily.

GPA is lower, not going to predict LSAT but we'll see. Looks like I'll hopefully be riding a WL with a chance to get off it on the right side.

I think it depends on how severe the split. Splitters got decent money in the t14 last year.

This is false, unless you think applications will be higher 2012-2013 than 2011-2012. In an environment where applications are declining take your sweet time on everything. Apply in June if you like.

Iowa: 155/180 (-25)

Found just by googling. I imagine more schools are starting to put up their entering class profiles
