As an ED splitter, I am definitely hoping this is the case. It could probably go either way though.
On the one hand, they could do what we're hoping and say "we don't know how this cycle is going to turn out, and here we have someone with an LSAT above our 75th applying ED, so let's just lock him down."
On the other hand, they could go the other way and say "our median LSAT is going to drop a point this year regardless of whether we take this splitter, so there's no need to mess up our GPA median over it too. Let's waitlist him and we can always accept him later."
Conclusion: unpredictable cycle is unpredictable.
What I'd really like to do is go find something else to do so that when decisions start rolling in I'm like "oh yeah! I applied to law school, completely slipped my mind!" But I know it will be more like "Log into status checker-->Refresh-->Refresh--> Refresh..."
