I like the new version. It's showing decisions for me that make more sense based on the LSN dots for similar candidates.

Interesting...all of my "weak considers" disappeared, and I only have Deny/Consider/Strong/Admit. Also, I'm noticing that changing my LSAT by a point will move some schools from "Deny" to "Consider" with no room in between.

Yes, this definitely seems more realistic! (Even if sometimes it makes me do this face: :cry: )

However, I need to remind myself that people get into "Consider", "Weak Consider", and even "Deny" schools sometimes. Just because I'm listed at 36% doesn't mean I don't have a fighting chance!

YC, amazing program! Can't wait to get my score in 10 days, because I'm pretty sure I've plugged about 20 different things into this site.

Given the whole PT situation with USNWR, do you expect part time predictions to still be more or less on target? Or are the odds predicted by LSP now rendered moot?

I sort of take issue with your ED calculations. Do you just move the person's decision up 1 rank if they are ED (example, without ED is weak consider, with ED is consider)? That varies greatly by school, and I would hate for someone to think they have a better shot at someplace than they do if they apply ED. Specifically I know that after talking to the GMU dean of admissions, she stated to me that they only take a handful of ED applicants every year and actually encouraged me to NOT apply ED (even though I wasn't considering it) because the benefits at that Mason do not outweigh the risk (they apparently don't defer to the regular cycle, they either admit you or ding you).

lol. Well since I met with their dean, that was the school I chose when I was tinkering with YCrevolution's site!

While most of the boosts are pretty close to each other, GW's is set so that there's a very, very small boost (I think it's about 10% of the average ED boost at other schools that offer it).


The numbers in the SCORE and %AT/BELOW colum don't move if I have ED selected or not. Should they? The only thing that changes is the DECISION

They are a strong regional school, and IMO a great value if you can get in-state. If you plan to stay in DC it's definitely worth looking into.

True, only your prediction changes, but that's the case if you select the URM box or are getting a splitter bonus or GPA penalty, too. If the "Adj." column is returning true, that means it's adjusting your index score (the actual adjustment isn't shown) before making the prediction.


Oh ok. Just making sure it's working as intended!

what does the "adj" - true or false, mean?

YC can I post any question ITT and you will answer it? So far, it seems like yes.
