Also, rankings come out Tuesday, embargoed rankings Monday. So it seems like tomorrow or never.

Ha.

If you win you don't get grand prize. I don't need some hipster guy coming out here and crushing me at a pickup game of basketball anyway.

I literally lol'd at that. Thanks.

Fwiw, UVA's had a big year numbers wise: Y/P is working in their favor, they were the only T14 with a boost in median LSAT, the new employment numbers work in their favor, and the bar passage rates are biased towards them vs NYU. Conversely, NYU lost LSAT points across the board and their already low median GPA really hurt them.

Still, I don't know how Morse does all of his weights, so I'm probably wrong.

I factored in all of those weights, but there are still more that I didn't know. For example, if a school's median LSAT is 170 and that accounts for 12.5% of the total score, how do you assign points? Compare it to the average of all schools? The max? There are too many ways to play with the numbers for me to feel confident about my final rankings.
