Don't you have an over 4.3 index starry? Don't count yourself out!

I'm the one who should be worried, I've got a 4.297 that LSAC helpfully rounds up to a 4.3, but even so...

I think you'll get the round up. My 4.34 was sadly rounded down to a 4.3 :/

Wait, really? You don't think they just take index numbers to one more digit? I'm sure they do.

well, when you look at your LSAC report you can see what index you're at. They rounded mine down.

edit: quoting got mixed up there, but you know. for the record: starry wasn't talking to herself, lol.

Yeah but i'm sure Columbia isn't basing decisions off that.

It is somewhat associative with acceptances/denials. 4.2 and below not a great shot (i've heard ~25% or less), 4.3 around 50/50, 4.4+ high chance of getting in (non URMs)

Hmm.. 175/3.8 rounded is a 4.5

Maybe? Check the transcript report that LSAC sent to Columbia, and that should have it rounded up or down.

I think what Knock is saying is that regardless of what LSAC does with the index, Columbia has both your LSAT score and your GPA, and they will calculate your index how they want to.

Ugh, the gulf between 4.29 and 4.3 is really not that big, but it certainly seems that way...

Especially since a single LSAT point is worth .045

Question about the index: If you have two LSAT scores, a reason for the lower one, and they choose to take the higher one, will they recalculate your index for you? On my LSAC report it's the average index...but I added an addendum and they request the add. for score leaps as big as I had...
