Do splitters or reverse splitters have better admission chances?

Postby ctl95 » Thu Jun 30, 2016 2:01 am

I've read a bit on splitters having a bad cycle because of the increase in the frequency of really good LSAT scores, but from past stats it seems like reverse splitters are both rarer, and do worse with admissions/WLs? Is this a general trend or am I misinterpreting?

As a sidenote, I have a 4.02 GPA (though from a UG that gives out A+s, which I've been told adcomms take into account) and 172. Does this make me a reverse splitter for HYS?

Splitters/reverse splitters refer to people with >75 lsat and <25 gpa and >75 gpa and <25 lsat.

You're nowhere near a splitter, bro. You're going to have some great options though, so congrats on that!

come on bro, 172 on the LSAT and you can't figure out that a rise in LSAT scores doesn't mean it's significant enough a rise to change the fact that there are still more high GPA applicants than high LSAT applicants, making it harder to find a >75th LSAT scorer than a >75th GPA to maintain USNWR t14?
