i don't know what the hell lsac is thinking but i don't like the looks of this.
they (and schools like harvard) should be making it harder for people to go to LS, not easier. too bad all they care about $$$
cross post from September study group
Initial response to the abolishment of the 3x takes is that it is splitter death. I disagree. It isn't like June and September are going to have a massive influx of only 180ers hell not even 170ers, it'll probably remain the same because test takers are only marginally different year to year; and we are still at one of the lowest applicant number ever and Harvard's medians dropped as well as Stanford. Dropping medians are a thing and we all need to look at this as a good thing.
The SAT are taken unlimited times and top scores still remain about the same. I think a 174+ and especially a 177+ will hold their value
Why do you think the medians have dropped? Curious.
