Splitters

Postby jng » Mon Jun 27, 2016 1:12 pm

What exactly is considered a splitter?

Is it being in the 25 in one aspect of either GPA/LSAT and then 75 in the other? Or can you be even lower than the 25 margin but have a significantly higher 75?

Both. It's when you have a 25/75 percentile split between either GPA and LSAT(Splitter) or LSAT and GPA(reverse-splitter).

But are you still considered a splitter when you're below the 25 percentile for GPA for the school or are you shit out of luck?

A splitter is someone who has at or below the 25th percentile for GPA for the school while at or above the 75th percentile for that school. You're not necessarily out of luck, as admission to multiple t-14s with money is possible for splitters.
