For the schools that have only released 75/25s (looking at you H), when will we definitively find out their medians? When US NEWS rankings come out?

I'm at work and won't be free til after their office is closed. You should call bro, and report back.

Just called, they said 3.8/170.


No change from 2011, bummer.

I wish we knew the scholarship totals of each entering class. It will be interesting to see if the percentage of people on scholarship at various schools has gone up / will go up, and if their average award has increased.

LSAC's guide shows 553/792 law students at Emory on scholarship (~70%), so if last year's entering class was 221/246, that's a big difference, nearly 20%. I would hope c/o 2015 is similar to that, and I'm guessing Wash. and Lee over-enrolled this year due to people taking scholarship offers, too. LSAC shows 64% of W&L students on grants, c/0 2015 is hopefully way higher.

Their 2011 medians were 170/3.75 (you can see on the ABA data), rounded to 170/3.8. Their 2010 medians were 170/3.80, without rounding. So the median GPA went either up or stayed exactly the same.

I know that the declines are a good thing and all, but it still seems counter intuitive to see them in green and increases in red. When I first looked at it, I was disappointed by all the green until I realized the transposition.

Are we ever going to find out LSAT and GPA numbers for Rutgers-Camden?

This is not surprising considering this law school is the ONLY reputable option for those who have to stay in Dallas.

Doesnt really suprise me either, considering their over all LSAT median is typically 163.

S/H/B all get shafted in the rankings because of their reputation scores.

Do you guys think that medians will continue to fall this cycle, as well?
