I'm pretty sure UC Davis admits that the numbers on the school's website are for their ADMITTED class, not their MATRICULANT class.

Thanks JS.

Looking at this page, the table on the right-hand side of the page indicates that the LSAT and GPA percentiles are for "offers." It's seems like it's from the 2007-08 cycle, but it's hard to tell. The catalog for UC-Davis Law lists a nice table of LSATs and GPAs of applicants (and their admission rate).


That's what I get for doing law school research at work in between financials. Alright, that makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the info.

SMU is listed as one of the binding early decision schools. However, I don't see anywhere on their website/application where this option is available.

http://www.law.smu.edu/Default.aspx?DN= ... 21512c22d8 (scroll down) and http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key= ... utput=html

I'll try and verify that it's binding.


I'm almost positive that is not binding. Similar to Texas' "early decision", which also isn't binding, just a reference to getting your application in early.

This is surely a stupid question, but where do I enable the ED option? I'm totally missing it.

Not positively, but according to an email that a fellow TLSer received last cycle, it is non-binding.

"Thank you for your recent application to SMU Dedman School of Law. Since you have applied for the early decision deadline of December 1, 2008, provided your file is complete by December 15, 2008, a decision letter will be mailed no later than January 31, 2008. Early decisions are not binding. SMU policy does not allow decisions to be given out over the telephone or e-mail."

Hey, thank you for all the work you put into this site. Especially since you are already geared up to start law school and any advancements/improvements you are making are obliviously not for yourself.

I am a web programmer by day, so if you every need/want any help let me know.

Also, your site inspired to develop a machine learning version for my project for my AI course next semester. I figure a good test of the AI after feeding it all the data from LSN and other TLSers will be how good it predicts my own cycle.

Is the ED bump the same for all schools or do you assign it a different weight for each school?

Very cool by the way.

QUESTION:

Your site has an option for ED Wash U... but I can´t see anything on their website mentioning ED. Where did you find that they accept ED?

Thanks!

Right now, it's the same % boost everywhere except GW (because their binding ED program involves a full scholarship). Over time (and with ED results from the upcoming cycle), I might fine-tune it to be more school-specific.


What was the boost % and how did you come up that particular number?
