Splitter friendly schools?

Postby anmar213 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 3:19 pm

I'm not sure where to post this, but I see a lot of mention of splitter friendly schools. I've browsed the forum looking for a list but i've been unable to find anything. Has someone put together a compilation?

For those who aren't sure, a splitter refer's to an applicant with either a High LSAT score and a low GPA, or of course a low LSAT and High GPA. I believe the first instance is much more common, and describes my situation.

a high lsat and low gpa is a splitter. A low lsat and high GPA is a reverse splitter. Different schools would favor each type. WUSTL is splitter friendly and I have heard that Northwestern is as well if you have work experience. California schools like high GPA's so maybe are a little more friendly to reverse splitters? Not real sure.

If you just read through some threads in the chances forum the splitter schools will become pretty clear. I doubt many people will respond to this thread because this information is everywhere on this site.

Thanks for the quick responses. While information may be all over these forums, I haven't found a compilation. I'm not just asking for my benefit. If none exists, I'm considering compiling the data for others.

There is some info compiled on the Law School FAQ forum sticky post. Perhaps a guide for splitters is in order? I just don't know if there is enough information on the subject to warrant a whole guide. Perhaps I could make a simple table for people.
