Median GPA was 3.66, with the 25th and 75th percentiles falling at 3.51 and 3.77, respectively."

Damn, I'm stoked now. If I score over 170 I'll have a kickass shot at Cornell.


Scoring above 170 won't make a difference. Once you get to 169 all LSAT scores are created equally for Cornell. A 170 and a 174 will both have the same impact on their medians.

Looking at last year's graph they did waitlist a bunch of 169ers, but with decreased apps and falling medians I'd bet that 169 is safer this year than last.

Vandy's numbers >>> Cornell's?

Not flaming but when will a Vandy or UT kick Cornell out of T14 status?

As soon as those numbers become the only criteria in the rankings, probably.

Bingo. Numbers are a small part of a (somewhat) complex ranking system. While Vanderbilt's numbers have been above Cornell's for 2-4 years, Cornell most likely owns (as they say) Vanderbilt in many of the other categories (reputation/expenditures/etc.).

Also, thanks tennisking88.

Was a joke, hence the pirate-talk. Ease of admission /=/ strength of law school.

They cut their class size by about 30 it seems too.

Does anyone know what BU's 25th and 75ths are? The use of the term "range" is awfully fishy when other schools are posting quartiles. I'm curious as to what this may mean for their spread.

Emory's 25% LSAT fell to 159. The 75% LSAT = 166. Underrepresented % of students seems to be 29%, not 39% as shown on their website.
Medians, as noted in above posts, are 165/3.7.
Expect many Tier One law schools to report lower 25% LSATs in light of the Illinois & Villanova misreporting practices & also due to fewer applications received.

Minnesota's medians are 167/3.8.

LSAT 25% is 157 & LSAT 75% is the same as the median (167) according to Minnesota admissions.

GPA 25%/75% is 3.41/3.9.

P.S. 25% LSAT may be in 156 territory, but reported as a 157 due to rounding. Initially I was told that the 25% LSAT was 156/157.
