I would lock the tab down though - people have a funny way of messing up spreadsheets... :roll: :)

Thanks for the assist! How do you go about locking tabs?

How big are the sample sizes for each quadrant? Great work!

It really depends. Most of them have 15-30. Some of the <25% ones are a little sparse, though, especially when the school's 25th is super low.

Yeah, I was just asking because for example, it appears that a 3.67-3.89 GPA has a better shot at Chicago with a 162-165 than a 166-169. There are similar results for Penn and Berkeley. That said, those are at best slightly below median stats anyways.

Yeah, for that example it's 1/12=8.3% vs 2/38=5.3%, with Penn it's 1/19=5.3% vs 1/45=2.2%

Small differences in percentages aren't meaningful here--it's the general tendencies that are interesting.

See, for instance, how you don't have a good chance at Berkeley unless you're above both medians and have at least one above a 75th, compared to at NYU where all you have to do is get a median LSAT or have a high GPA with a below median LSAT. Or look at Northwestern, who seemed to care more about their 75th LSAT than their median (and they suffered for it!).
