It's all summarized in a spread sheet. Probably not worth reading all 72 pages.

You would think that Illinois would be especially transparent regarding their medians given the scandal a couple years back and yet they STILL haven't released them. I'm left to assume the worst.

For the person who inputted the GW numbers--curious to know where you got 25th and 75th LSAT/GPA figures. If that 75th LSAT is correct, quite impressive that it's above Cornell's, especially given how GW increased its class size by over 20 percent.

Ouch. That is what, at least a 3 point median drop, right?


Correct. The class that entered Fall 2010 had a 167 median LSAT. That's a 7 point drop in 3 years!

I mean they fabricated their numbers in the past and admitted students from the UG without requiring an LSAT.

I believe the 167 that year was accurate though. IIRC, they knowingly reported an inflated median of 168 the year after.

Whatever the case, a remarkable drop nonetheless.

That's pretty crazy, but on the upside it means that I might get a decent scholarship to a school with employment that is not awful. 61% employment with a 23% chance at fedclerk and biglaw? You could do worse with entering numbers like that.

They should probably just close.

Eh, one can probably justify a school like Illinois. Kent, SIU, NIU, John Marshall, Loyola, and Depaul, however, should all just go away.
