If we look at Duke for last year http://duke.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/0708/ , it appears that no one got in with under a 165.
But if we look at this official LSAC data http://officialguide.lsac.org/SearchRes ... AC5156.pdf over 100 people got in with under a 165. So everything on there should be taken with a grain of salt.
(Duke is 2nd highest rank school with this chart, w/ Yale being the highest)
Good set of data, but I think you drew the wrong conclusion. I think that data provides a lot of evidence that LSN is actually quite accurate.
According to that data, 100 people were admitted with an LSAT under 165, but this was out of 1550 total admissions.
Thats a 14:1 ratio. 14 admits 165 and up, for every admit under 165.
If you look at the LSN chart, I would say that is exactly what it is showing.
Yeah, but the general consensus here and places like that has typically been that you need at least a high 160 to even have any kind of shot to get into a school like that. And that the only people who get into those schools with numbers under are URM.
