FYI my total numbers for the over 170 group is off because I used 98% instead of 97.5%. I'll update once I get home. The over 174 and over 177 groups are accurate.

From Prof. Campos's post:
"Rising 2L at a top 40 school here. I was offered a scholarship by Chicago to transfer. I'm taking close to a full ride from a lower T-14 instead."

Lol... the same school who offered a Ruby to someone who was withdrawing. Keep it classy, Chicago.

Seems even top schools are strongly affected.

Either a really rare situation or a flame.

Maybe. I'm just hoping the decline continues just to see how schools will cope.

Someone is claiming a school offered him almost a full ride to transfer? There are lots of reasons I doubt this.

I'm going with flame, or poster misunderstood that it was actually Chicago-Kent that was involved.

Heck, why would Chicago-Kent want to offer almost-free tuition to a transfer? 95% of the reason schools take transfers is for more tuition dollars, isn't it?

Hopefully the numbers keep dropping so we can all get large sums of $$$

At some point schools are going to have to choose to accept lower medians to stop themselves from draining endowments or running a deficit. For your guys' sake I hope that's not next year.

I think it'll come to a choice of letting one median drop in favor of the other. LSAT scores are most correlated to success in the first year, UGPA isn't as much so we may see a drop in the GPA median in favor of keeping the LSAT median constant

Updated original post with corrected numbers. These match up more with LSACs and their projections though I'm being more conservative than they are regarding the drop in testers fir this year.
