Agreed, I've recently become addicted in predicting my future admissions cycle. I've formed a spreadsheet comprised of schools I like as far as their location and environment, coupled with possible LSAT/GPA combinations, and charted my likelihood of admission depending on how I perform my junior year and on the LSAT. Call me a dork, but I like to know what to aim for and what my options are:
Nicely done. I'm totally borrowing your layout.
It actually really helped me. Previously I had considered U Penn and Duke to be the high end of my possible schools, but now I don't see a reason to waste my money.
Don't entirely go off of these predictors, as a splitter the predictors tend to be wildly inaccurate much of the time. Believe me, if I had gone off one, I wouldn't have applied to 1/2 the schools I did, and wouldn't be going to the school that I am. I was just as addicted to the placebo effect that the predictors give you, but the fact is, high LSAT low GPA splitters just have NO IDEA where they are going to end up at. Your app package, your LORs and your PS matter much more in this case, and there simply isn't any way to know how that will be looked upon.
