Thanks so much for the positive feedback, folks. I just updated the Columbia page to include a table and some analysis on ED applicants...since Columbia's was the first profile I put up where binding ED is actually an option, I forgot that the first time around. It's kind of interesting, actually, so check it out. And definitely feel free to post your own comments and analysis anywhere you want...the more heads put together on digging the story out of the numbers, the better.

For the splitter/non-splitter profiles, do you include or exclude URMs?

Could you include a couple of softs:
WE vs K-JD
and TFA?

Blog looks great and is very helpful.

Edit: And is splitter defined as LSAT over median, GPA under median?

They're included. In the regression results, that's controlled for, but just in that ED table, they're included.

I can try, although when you include that stuff, the number of observations is going to end up dropping to near nothing, I think...I will definitely take a look, though.

Any chance we could get another splitter/reverse-splitter/non-splitter stat table for non URM? The concept of floors seems to skew the mean LSAT/GPA for reverse-splitters and splitters respectively (I think).

Hey thanks for the great blog!

Just one thing...maybe it's just me or my browser, but on the profile pages of the schools, are there supposed to be pictures of graphs or something? I just see big white blank boxes. o_O

*Edited for request

Could you do some profiles on regional schools like BU and BC?

Absolutely. Not sure why I didn't think of this before, but I will take care of it as soon as I get a chance. Thanks!

I think it's just your browser, because there should be tables there. I plan on doing profiles on most schools, but I'll go ahead and try to put BC and BU up for you today.

Columbia page updated to include URM vs. non-URM ED/RD tables.

Nothing really changes, but it was a great idea to do it anyway, so thanks for that! I'll make sure to do it on all school's that have a binding ED option.

Continuing to work, definitely still accepting requests. In the meantime, I just put up a super quick look at the T14 vs. the non-T14 in terms of boosts.

I didn't know jack about it until I went to grad school, but once I started learning it I got hooked. By the way, as soon as I can get the data cleaned up reasonably well regarding money, I will see about that scholarship thing we talked about. Also, I will put up profiles on those schools you asked about :)

Great job. This will end up as a great resource and will provide data to go with the retake advice. One or two points can make a huge difference.

I know you said that admissions isn't all about numbers based on your Harvard waitlist.
I was wondering if you still feel this way after churning through the data.
