Peddling your pseudo-mathematical "statistics" might actually trick someone into believing your nonsense, and more importantly, it's just not funny. Go back to being a funny troll. I liked it when you made me laugh.

Now consider I have the 75th percentile numbers at TJSL
.25/.25=1. It is likely that I will finish in the top quartile and get a job
Now at GULC
.65/.75=87% I have an 87% chance of getting a job since it is likey I will finish below median. Therefore I have a greater chance of getting a job at TJSL then at GULC. At harvard the odds would be lower since I would probably fail. I do not support the static dignosis which considers all 1l's equal. You do not have the same chance as other people with different numbers and it effects employment outcomes

So. Much. Fail...
For starters, your method for projecting your class rank is flawed because it assigns 100% confidence to projecting Law School class rank with LSAT scores. In reality, the correlation between students' ranks among their entering class in uGPA/LSAT index and their actual class rank in law school is around 0.57. That's from memory, but it's in the ballpark. The coefficient of explanation, therefore, is around 0.325. This is the best available predictor of grades, and it only explains about one third of eventual class rank. Therefore, in practice, the best you can project yourself in final class rank upon entering a law school is 66th percentile, because the mean class rank, 50, will receive 67% of the weight in the projection and your incoming rank in the uGPA/LSAT index will receive only 33% of the weight. That means, even for students that enter with the most promising numbers in their class, there's only a 50% chance that they'll end in the 33% of the class.
