Looks like the 509 product has changed for NU, so I'm guessing this is the new hotness:

http://www.law.northwestern.edu/admissi ... Report.pdf

LSAT: 163 / 168 / 170 (all same)

GPA: 3.56 (+0.13) / 3.83 (+0.02) / 3.89 (same)

Class Size: 223 (+8) (just matriculants, since they list 5 "other" first years)



Nope--that's still the 2016. (http://www.abarequireddisclosures.org/)


I pulled the 2016 one from ABA and compared them. Different numbers. Different format. My link is to the 509 form posted on NU's website, not the ABA's. I think that's just NU getting it on their page a day early. I expect the ABA version tomorrow (or when they upload) to mirror the one in the link I posted.

Am I missing something?

*Edit - Also, date up through Oct 2017 now. Has to be the new one.

They must have pulled it down for a while--when I clicked on your link it was the 2016..but just did it a second ago and it is the 2017 now...you are correct!

Ah, gotcha. I lined them both up and was like, "damn, I think these are different?"

Guess that rounds out the T13/14/15, whatever we're calling it these days.

Wonder if we can lock down the spreadsheet now and just have a few folks update.

Duke (the Blue Devils) have 666 students - how fitting!

Had medians previously, but here's the full report for Wash U:

169 / 168 / 161 (0 / 0 / +1)

3.86 / 3.74 / 3.37 (+.05 / +.07 / +.22)

personofinterest wrote:So far, predictions* based on mylsn.info are spot on, assuming median reports are correct. My method was to see what LSAT scores schools accepted for GPA range 3.00-3.74. Most schools had pretty sharp cut-offs (ex. School X would accept >50% of 169s, but 0% of non-URM 168s). Thanks to law schools for obviously gaming the rankings. Hopefully the luck continues!

personofinterest wrote:Penn - 169 - CORRECT
UVA - 169 - CORRECT
Michigan - 169 - CORRECT (predicted 1 point increase from last year)
Duke -169 - CORRECT
NU - 169 - WRONG (it stayed at 168)
Berkeley - 167 - CORRECT (predicted 1 point increase from last year)
Texas - 167 - CORRECT
Georgetown - 167 - CORRECT
UCLA - 167 - CORRECT
Cornell - 166 - WRONG (it stayed at 167)
Vandy - 166 - CORRECT (predicted 1 point decrease from last year)
WashU - 166 168 - CORRECT (although I did change from original guess, but before median was released)
USC - 165 - CORRECT


*Although I predicted Berkeley's score before they announced it, I hadn't posted predictions on TLS until after they announced. If you look at mylsn.info, you can see a clear line between 166 and 167 scores for Berkeley


Welp, the mylsn predictions were not perfect. It seems like a decent tool, but far from perfect. I would guess that two big factors for wrong guesses are (1) only a small percentage of people post on lsn, and (2) some entries could be made up/incorrect.
