Thank you for verification! :D
Why wouldn't Duke just update the webpage though?

From an email sent at Penn Law today...

Since 2000, applications have risen 74 percent. At the same time, the median LSAT score of the incoming class has risen from 165 to 170, and the median GPA from 3.5 to 3.87. In this year’s admissions cycle, Penn Law applications defied national trends, increasing by more than 13 percent, even though nationally applications were down 13 percent. The diversity of the student body continues to be strong, as well, with 41 percent of the School’s students identifying themselves as persons of color, and women making up 47 percent of the student body.

That is inconsistent with their entering applicant profile for the class of 2015.

35% and 44% respectively.

Hm, weird. Email came straight from the dean, so I have no idea. Checked and those aren't the C/O 2014 numbers either.

Is there an option for law schools to forgo reporting medians to the ABA and just say "we'll take literally anyone" instead.

The Wikipedia page for New York Law School doesn't have a section on "criticism" and is almost entirely positive. This looks like a job for TLS...

It will be interesting to see what the admission percentage was this season for low-ranked schools in particular. For example in 2011 Barry admitted 58% of its applicants. This year it managed to increase class size by 10% even though it got 15% fewer applications (obviously it did this by cutting admission standards, such as they were, even more drastically). I expect we'll learn they admitted around 70% to 75% of everyone who applied.
