MYLSN Q

Postby aryi3025 » Sun Feb 12, 2017 12:55 am

In the admissions and scholarship tabs when you hover over your selected numbers it will give you a percentage and another number in parentheses. can someone explain what those numbers mean?

I assume you're looking at the scholarship stats, where it might say something like (40%/$50000). The first number is the percentage of admitted students who were offered scholarships, and the second number is the average amount that students who were offered scholarships were given. So be careful with reading those. The example numbers I gave don't mean that the average applicant gets a $50,000 scholarship. It means that of the 40% of MyLSN-reporting applicants who were offered a scholarship, the average amount was $50,000.

Cavalier1138 is right on the scholarship graphs. on the other graph it's LSAT/GPA: Percent Accepted (Adjusted Sample Size)
