LawSchoolPredictor

It hasn't been updated with the newly released medians right?

So I'm guessing it overestimates your chances?

Are you sure about all top 100 schools? On the side I see 25th/75th LSAT and GPA and for schools like Cornell/Vandy they don't seem to be accurate (Cornell shows 165 for 25th, vandy shows 169 for 75th).

It was updated with the stats in USNWR on June 22, 2010. While there may be typos, those numbers are both what the respective schools reported to USNWR for the 2011 graduate schools rankings.


Weird, why would they report a lower median to USNWR and post a higher median on their website lol.

Remember there's a difference between enrolled and admitted.

By medians, you mean 25th and 75th percentiles?

Also, keep in mind that 2011 USNWR rankings is based on '08-'09 cycle data.


Oh no wonder. I was looking at the 09-10 data.

But I guess this doesn't change the fact that lawschoolpredictor overestimates my chances since the medians there haven't been updated to the latest... :(

Don't they just report the medians for enrolled? I don't think USNWR even cares about admitted medians do they?
