I've noticed some people say that HYS's numbers won't be affected by the drop in applicants, but in the past cycle applicants with 170-171 LSATs and 3.94+ GPA went a perfect 10-0 at Harvard per MYLSN. It seems like the drop may not alter the medians of these schools, but is it making it easier for students near the lower end of the former 25th-75th spreads?

MyLSN confirms this. At Harvard, the acceptance rate for 170+ and 3.80+ last cycle was 78%, while over the three cycles starting '08-'09 it was 61%.
Stanford and Yale, though, show no significant change. Stanford: 38%->44%. Yale: 29%->32%.
