is it really? My GPA on law school predictor and my LSAC GPA were exactly the same

This is something I'm very curious about as well. Where does LSC and hourumd get the raw LSN data that they use? I was expecting to find .xls versions on LSN, but that's definitely not happening. Do you think they sell it?
At some point in the past (at least a couple years ago, I think), they used to release CSV data on LSN users. They've stopped doing that.
As for Hourumd and LSC, my guesses are:
A. They're using the old CSV files.
B. Someone good at web programming figured out a way to harvest them from LSN. This harvesting might be dynamic (real-time or close to it) or requires manual activation.
C. They asked/knew someone at LSN who gave them the data (I doubt it would be very recent just because my very limited experience with LSN tech support leads to me think they wouldn't be that helpful, at least not for free).

Or at least have that option - since I'm sure that's what is happening in the background anyway?

Thanks so much!

Revised example: University of Virginia,Accepted,170,3.85,URMTrue/False,UserName
Code: Select all
=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("URM",D2)), 1, 0)
