Using admisionquestion's (memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=67390
) method, I've been able to data mine the following information from LSN related to applicants who applied from day one to 11/2 in this cycle and compare it to last year's cycle:
Median LSAT: 169
Mean LSAT: 168.22
Median GPA: 3.71
Mean GPA: 3.648
Median LSAT: 170
Mean LSAT: 169.19
Median GPA: 3.75
Mean GPA: 3.669
2010-2011 Sample Size: 155
2011-2012 Sample Size: 83
Maybe more people will fill out LSN towards the end of the cycle but that is a pretty big discrepancy.
I thought this might be interesting to future hopeful Cornellians.
Wait, this is GOOD news, right? The people who've applied as of Nov. 2 are slightly higher-scoring than their counterparts last year (by 1 LSAT point, .04 GPA), but there are WAYYY fewer of them.
I suppose people might come on to LSN weeks from now and enter a pre-Nov. 2 "sent" date retroactively, but it doesn't seem like there would be that many of those. I think most people who are hyper enough to create an LSN profile tend to enter transactions as they happen.
