Well it puts you with about a 4.2 index. The results so far from the ED pool have not been good for people with a 4.2 (at the top of my head I think everyone but one or so got deferred). But you really never know because ad comms can be unpredictable despite what most people say.

That could be the big package, though. Some of the LSN people referred to a letter and a package. SO WE'LL SEE.

I reallly hope we don't have to hold out until February :( Will lose my mindddd.


One of my roommates last year got into Columbia, and her admit book was GORGEOUS!!!

If I don't get in I might consider asking if I can borrow hers for a day so I can at least flip through it and pretend.

It's also on your LSDAS report but rounded to 1 decimal.

Wellllllll I have absolutely no authority but I think you have a shot! I have the same exact index btw.

ahduth calculate your index on http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com. its under the SCORE category.

edit: didnt want to sound like i was tooting my own horn but i guess i should say i was accepted with the exact same index because maybe thats more encouraging to hear?

I'm slightly below most of you...I can't decide whether to feel cautiously optimistic or increasingly pessimistic at this new bit of information.

I think there's a chart somewhere that shows acceptances compared to index, and it basically showed that 4.2 was slim chances, 4.3 was 50/50, and 4.4+ is in and scholarship territory. Something like that, anyone have that graph?

Word, thank god for rounding, I make the all-important jump between the 2 and the 3 as my first number after the decimal...

I dont know where the graph is but I definitely remember this (edit: that 4.3 is 50/50 and 4.4 and above is solid) and the ED cycle so far confirms this.
Some ED data from this cycle can be found here: https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key ... 5boF#gid=0 although I dont know when it was last updated.

And for the 4.3 people, I think that other factors do come into play... dare I say softs/personal statement? Because there is no other way to explain why people with the exact same numbers and a 4.3 index had different outcomes.

AMEN. Mine jumps from a 3 to a 4, by the slimmest of margins.

Well if they don't average LSAT scores I am a 4.415, if they do I drop down to a 4.235 (9 point jump in LSAT). I'm a semi-splitter who applied last week so I bet my results will be different from others with a similar index, but here's hoping that they don't average!

They don't average, don't worry about it.

Yeah, especially not with a 9 point jump.

applied 10/30. when do you think we can expect decisions?

sorry, i'm sure this question has been answered already, but i don't feel like digging through a 88 page thread.

Indexes are scary. I have/had a 4.522 b/c I'm a splitter. I got deferred then wait listed last year.

Fingers crossed for better luck this time. To be fair, I didn't have like any EC's.
