Brooklyn Law. Discrepancy Btw PT and FT

Postby Kess » Sun Oct 30, 2011 10:49 pm

Can anyone explain to me why Law School Predictor gives me "Deny" for FT at Brooklyn Law, but "Strong Consider" for PT. My numbers are 155/4.0. Is there something I don't know?

part time numbers are lower (so the index is lower) so the predictor thinks youll have a better shot (all it does is measure index).
I can't speak for Brooklyn, but GT, GW, and Fordham Pt all though the numbers are lower, I think s harder than FT to get into because the class is so small (acceptance is in the single digit % I believe). The only evidence I have is anecdotal: number above median for PT is dinged at these schools, while same numbers at median are getting into FT.

I would look and see how many students are in Brooklyns PT, (at GW and Fordham I believes its ~30-40)
