The chart on page 3 indicates otherwise. Also this:
With respect to LSAT data, in a spreadsheet Pless used to track applicants and to compute the Class of 2012’s median LSAT score, one student’s LSAT score was changed to 166, despite the fact that, as indicated by that student’s application materials maintained within LSAC’s CAS database, the student had an LSAT score of 165. Based on LSAC data, 117 students in the class had an LSAT score below 166; while 115 students had an LSAT score of 166 or above. Increasing this one, below-166 LSAT score to 166 thus had the effect of equalizing the number of scores below 166 and those scores at or above 166 (116 for both) andcreating a data foundation (albeit an erroneous one) for the claim that the Class of 2012’s median LSAT score was 166.
