When do 2015 ABA 509s come out?

Postby stillplayspokemon » Fri Jun 12, 2015 1:26 pm

Do people know when the 2015 ABA 509s will come out? I'm curious because I feel like a one point drop in the median at a school you want to go to is the same as a one point jump in your LSAT (also, do people think that is true?).

I think they usually start to trickle in late November and are all up by mid-December.

If you're talking about the role of a school's LSAT median on admissions chances, it is important to keep an eye on them--most importantly, your position relative to them. If that one point drops pushes you past a quartile/median, it could be particularly impactful. It's important to remember when evaluating it though, that if a school's median drops, it only helps your position at that one school, and from a broad perspective, an increase in an LSAT point helps your chances at ALL schools, and so they're a little dissimilar.

Its only my opinion, but I am skeptical of any top14 school losing LSAT or GPA medians, and I think the UT/UCLA/Vandy tier is probably safe as well. After that, maybe.

I was wondering if being at the anticipated LSAT median for a prospective law school gives you decent scholarship leverage late in the cycle (ie in the coming month before submitting a 2nd deposit)?

Or if I would have to be above the median by a point or more?

This....but you may see updated entering class profiles as early as late Sept/early October ( not official ABA docs, but the same info as what you will see in the 509's)

Apps are down 5% so I can see some in the lower T14 losing a point
