I plugged in my numbers and it told me "deny" at Yale, so I didn't even bother applying there initially. I only sent in my app to YLS at the last minute (on the day of the deadline, in fact) because my mom basically forced me to, and I eventually got in off the waitlist. If I had listened to that silly website, I never would've known that I even had a chance at Yale. Law School Predictor can give you a pretty good sense of what your chances are, but DON'T LET IT SELL YOU SHORT!!!
LSP can't predict Yale(or Stanford, really) due to its black-box nature in either direction. It should be ignored for those two schools.
Right. some of the top schools have criteria other than numbers, because they can keep their averages up. Or, like Boalt, they might turn down a really high LSAT if your GPA is low regardless of what it says.
