That is insane. It also reminds me of an article/interview I read with someone from American where they said they didn't think their employment numbers were representative because GULC/GW were taking all of their top students who would have gotten jobs (and pointed out how clever/shitty it was that the schools got away with getting all those students without having their gpa/lsat influence their numbers).

That brand new building at American must seem kinda lonely outside of the 1L classrooms.

Looks like they only lost ~10% of their class this past year?

Their 509 shows 21% attrition (most via transfer)

Doesn't account for the 30 transfers they took, though (Although I did that wrong before - the class still decreased by 15%).

Notable T20 discrepancies other than class sizes usually being one or two lower (because of dropouts) are that Yale's 75%tile is actually 175 instead of them holding 176.
NYU's GPA numbers were rounded apparently so their 25%tile is actually 3.65 instead of 3.7
Cornell's 25%tile is 163 not 164.

Also, would anyone be interested in adding the selectivity for each school? Not in any other year but this past. It would be pretty interesting I think!

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this TLS site, so I am not sure if I am posting in the correct location. My apologies, I am still trying to figure everything out. I am from Canada so LSAT/GPA medians posted on Canadian law school's admissions pages are all based on a 4.0 scale (last 60 or 90 credits depending on the school). From my understanding American schools utilize a 4.33 scale (LSAC conversion rules). I am just wondering if the reported GPA medians on American law school's admission pages are based on this 4.33 scale or on the standard 4.0 scale. If anyone could shed some light on this it would be appreciated.

Thanks

American undergrads all differ in if they award A+'s or not so while not every undergrad is on a 4.33 scale, as you put it, some matriculants report a higher than 4.0GPA. So for law schools they could theoretically have a higher than 4.0 75% or something.

Your GPA won't be weighted any differently in admissions' eyes just because you could not receive over a 4.0.

Interesting, thank you. My institution awards A+ grades thankfully. This explains some of the clustering around 50th-75th percentiles reported on the admissions pages. I guess the admission committees are left to speculate if a 3.9/4.0 is better than 4.08/4.33 for example. It is strange that not all US institutions use the same grading schema in UG.
