When I wrote this last night I thought it was pure gold.

:oops:


Well, it is - but the 0Ls probably don't know what Three is ;)

Fun fact: After finals, the 1Ls usually rent it out and they black out the windows. Literally finals will end at noon, and the 1Ls will be there drinking within an hour. Now that's a special memory from my first year of law school.


HAHA YES! I knew the 1Ls would get it! I spent at least some part of each night of ASW at Three.

Check your Financial Aid @ SIS. There was movement...

If I'm not mistaken it looks like the Fin Aid office sent off the loan apps to the Fed (aka loan servicer).

how many people are above "median." I know what median means... but is it like skewed that 70% of the people are actually above median or is it 50%?

tazfifi is correct in that sometimes medians can appear to skew data, depending on how you look at it. For instance, if there were 10 people in a class and the GPA distribution was: 2.5, 2.7, 3.0, 3.5, 3.5, 3.5, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, & 4.0, the median would be 3.5, even though only 30% of the people would be scoring below median. In this case 70% of the class would be scoring at or above the median (and 60% would be scoring at or below it). You'd have to have several people in the middle with identical GPAs for this to occur, but under a curved system its not unreasonable that this would be true.

correct of course, the only reason i picked at him was because he said "above" whereas your well-honed math and logic skills correctly noted what is bolded

I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt and hoping he was implying at or above. Also you would still get more people above the median than below it in my example; I'm just trying to point out that medians don't mean that 50% are definitely above and 50% are definitely below and hopefully spare him some ridicule.

fair...but regardless, still a pretty funny question. it would certainly be nice if UVA skewed it so 70% were above

It's not unreasonable after first semester that there'd be a large number of people with exactly 3.33, but after 2 semesters that number is going to decrease, and by the time we all make it to graduation it's improbable that there will be more than a handful of people sharing the median spot.

You ruined the funny though!

But yeah, USC or one of those SoCal TTTs has 167 as their median and 75%ile LSAT. It's not impossible.

I thought the place was called "No. 3" so I didn't get it at first. Still not convinced we are talking about the same place.

I'm not sure what the name is....just vaguely remember drinking at a bar called 3/Three during March ASW.
