ETA: This means that only 3% of the variation in LSAT scores can be explained by the variation in GPAs. Y'all suck.

So we really are special snowflakes???


Or everyone is WILDLY incorrect about their LSAT scores.

True, I'm way more interested in how far off everyone was


Presumably the data this site has about the GPA/LSAT of hundreds of applicants would give a better idea of the true correlation between the two. At which point we could overlay that regression onto our graph and circle the people who are farthest off average.

ooooo I like this, I like the words you're using


Is there a place I can just download all the data? Because the thought of copy/pasting from http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/stats.php makes me feel physically ill


The low r squared value just means that the GPA is not a good predictor of lsat score, which it isn't.

But even if it was perfect data, the r squared would be bad.

Possibly. We don't know unless we actually run the regression. I can't imagine it would be like, 95%, but I also really doubt it would be 3%.

That's my worst case scenario.


Yea that being the best-case scenario seems like your setting your expectations quite low.


Point being, this was my first time taking it; so I will take it again regardless as it can't hurt.

Update: figured out that the pages for individual schools have a table with every applicant who applied to that school. I think I'll pull the data from just the T14 and run that.
