I realize you haven't been ITT for long but I do actually know what I'm talking about. There's a pretty big grEy area between "these two datasets have absolutely nothing to do with each other" and "this is a perfect 1:1 correlation." You don't just throw your data in the trash if the R squared is less than 95% lmao.

Reading Ulysses or Don Quijote would be faster than the arrival of our scores. Also War and Peace.


brb picking those up on the kindle store.


Fuck Ulysses tho. Never again.

I'm currently reading The Brothers Karamazov, would hope to get scores back before I finish but ya that's probably wishful thinking

We both know what we're talking about. And I didn't say that we should throw our data into the trash. I just don't think that since our R squared is low our data is suddenly trash. It could be that GPA is a poor indicator of LSAT scores. And also--feel free to call me a noob--what is ITT???

I really can't believe we didn't get our scores today. What do you think the chances of waking up to grey are?

I just don't think GPA is such a completely poor indicator of LSAT that 3% would really be the R Squared value for accurate data. It was a small sample from an informal survey which asked for predicted rather than actual LSAT scores, hence why I think the data is at least a little bit terrible. No offense Vulpes.

But I really do want that actual vs. predicted LSAT graph. I'm gonna need everyone ITT (in this thread) to make a commitment to answer that survey when it comes out, capisce?

Slim. It doesn't seem that grey has happened before noon EST in recent history. I guess maybe if you are on pacific time and you sleep past 9 there is a small chance

98% if we're talking about the weather
0.0000000001% if we're talking about the LSAT
