You might see this happen for some schools. This year the ABA moved the census date for the incoming class numbers back to October (to accommodate the new "certification" process). Some schools have released preliminary data based on, for example, the first day of classes (which was the old standard), but if people withdrew between then and October it could be enough to impact medians and change 25/75's. This is probably why many schools still have not released their entering 2012 numbers. In the current 'gotcha' climate, some schools are likely deciding it isn't worth the risk of even the appearance that they might be engaged in shenanigans.

The LSAC Official Guide should be out sometime in early spring this year, though. Much earlier than last year.

Very interesting, thanks for clearing that up!

That's encouraging, the latest guide was released in mid-July, which rendered it all but useless for people trying to decide where to enroll in August. Do you know whether the LSAC Official Guide will be the first publication of the LSAC-certified medians?


In a manner of speaking, yes it should be insomuch as there is no other source for the "certified" data except for the law schools themselves. As with any process like this, the schools will get the data before the entire guide is released. Some might put something on their own websites at that time, while others might just wait until the guide comes out.
