ETA: Considering NYU did not reduce class size, I'm calling bullshit if they post a 172 median.
I thought people had already said NYU's median fell to 171? Or were they just rumors (or am I crazy... quite possible)?
Pretty sure it was rumors but it would seem to be impossible that the median stayed at 172.
Also, is there evidence that NYU was more liberal with scholarship money and maybe poached people that would have otherwise gone to CLS?
guys am i retarded math-wise? how can the median NOT be 171 if it's the middle point between the 75th and 25th percentiles (i.e. 173...172...171...170...169)???
It isn't the middle point between the 75th and 25th percentiles, it could equal the 25th or 75th or be anywhere in between. Typically, the way the numbers are distributed with law schools, the median is closer to the 75th.
