Is "LSN is 10% of T14 applicants" accurate?

Postby Yukos » Thu Jan 24, 2013 3:39 pm

I've heard that stat thrown out there on TLS and I'm curious how accurate it is. Is it possible to estimate how much a class has been filled by multiplying the acceptances on LSN by 10?

TLS/LSN has much higher acceptance rates than the general population, so it's not the best predictor in that regard. Also keep in mind that a lot of members get accepted at 3-6 T14 schools, so the acceptances don't necessarily mean that the student enrolled.

Just compare how many applicants LSN has for each school vs. total applicants, and we'll see. I believe, its right around there. Harvard had 8K applicants, 620 or so on LSN. Stanford had 4.3K total, 460 on LSN.

LSN is probably skewed heavier on the favorable outcomes though. If LSN represents 10% of the app pool, I'd be fairly confident that it is more than 10% of the acceptance pool.

Agreed. If one looks at the median GPA/LSATs on LSN, it is higher than those reported for the entire applicant pool - and this effect is probably exacerbated when extrapolated to those who do not get admitted. So I'd say it would represented 15-20% of acceptances (number totally out of my ass)

If you click on the tabs for each school, it shows what % LSN is of each's schools applicants and admits since the inception of LSN. :D

As you will notice, LSN accounts for about 10% of each of the T14's applicants, but about 20% of their admits.


So I'm right? excellent!

But thanks for the actual data, you're a spreadsheet beast

This is exactly what I was curious about, thanks!
