HLS Came to my School

Postby DaRascal » Tue Oct 25, 2011 8:15 pm

The admissions representative said they weigh every single factor equally including the resume and letters of recommendation.
Why do I find this hard to believe?

Maybe because they can't just say "Oh it's 60% LSAT and 30% GPA."

That would be "politically incorrect" you see.

Because you are intuitively correct in believing that the "numbers" in the game matter a lot more than admissions personnel are willing to admit.

TBF softs matter more at HYS than anywhere else. These schools can afford to ACTUALLY do what they say and pick a "diverse" class without looking exclusively at numbers. That said, if you have a Nobel Prize, you probably did pretty well on your LSATs.
