No median numbers available, but it's safe to say they haven't changed significantly.
A little surprised the GPA didn't go up more (that so-called 3.8 soft floor is a pretty porous floor), but good to see. I suppose the increase in apps won't raise your scores much if you are tied to a very small slice of acceptable LSAT scores.
Don't forget that 20% of HLS is URM, so many of them will be in the sub-3.8 group, along with the Ivy UGs, legacies, rich donors, etc. The floor is pretty much 3.8 for everyone else.
Yes, fair enough. Though it is 15% if you only count the four groups which receive a tangible boost (Afr Am, American Indian, PR, and Mex). The 20% figure counts "Hispanics" of any sort, but if there is a boost for non-Mex/PR Hispanics it is, by most accounts, pretty small.
