MyLSN question

Postby Fred Norris » Sat Feb 21, 2015 1:23 am

I'm not the best at this stuff. I'm looking for a way to calculate a person's chances of getting into school C if they got into schools A and B. Is that possible?

Not at all. Getting into a school doesn't tell you anything about their stats (whether they were on the high end or low end, did they get in because they were qualified or legacy/pull, etc) and without knowing approximately where they fall as far as GPA/LSAT go there's really no quantitative (mylsn) way to predict where else they'd get in. There is some caveats in that someone getting into Yale will likely have the numbers to get into cornell, though that's not guaranteed and again, knowing their numbers is really the only way to properly predict this and without that mylsn will be of no help.

Furthermore, each law school has their own way of making admissions decisions, so for example someone who got into the #2 school Harvard might not get into #3 Stanford or #7 UPenn. Without knowing the schools specifically it is even more difficult (if it wasn't impossibly so before) to predict where they're likely to get in.
