It all depends.

First, you should be above both 25ths. If not, your stronger number should be well above the 75th percentile. If you're within both 25-75 bands, marginal would be exactly at medians (you have to account for people with strong softs and URMs... in other words, the median is not the target number for the "average" applicant), slightly below each median, or one below and one at or slightly above median.

Conversely, someone slightly above both medians is probably 50/50, and someone slightly below, at, or slightly above one median and above the 75th percentile for the other number is in good shape.

ETA: Also, this is for the connotation of "marginal"... I guess the truly marginal people are the folks who no one can believe got in, but somehow did.


You, my friend, will excel in your legislative and statutory interpretation class.

I claim marginality because I am hard to predict at Cornell. I'm a major splitter with a strong GPA addendum and excellent softs. I am below most GPA floors, but I seem to be beating the odds in some (though not all) cases; for example, I got into NYU but waitlisted at Fordham. So, I'd consider myself marginal because I'm not an auto-admit despite an LSAT 10+ points above median, but I'm not also a likely ding. I'm a unique case, though, so perhaps there's not much to generalize from my cycle's results.

No, but they sent me a copy of the alumni magazine (?)

I have no idea why that is the case, but I am incredibly flattered :wink: I have to admit the "zombie Lincoln" prompt both intimidated and excited me.

Also: congrats on NYU! Maybe see you there?

Has anyone received the admitted student handbook?
BTW do you guys think that I should learn to drive before going to Ithaca?
