As a >75% LSAT extreme splitter...im not encouraged. I had noticed the same thing that you pointed out. At least on LSN, there were very few high LSAT people waitlisted in the last 3 years (including this year), and not many got in (whereas many more high GPA people got in).
Pretty much all of this...
Since (to my understanding) they generally pull people from the WL to loosely match profiles of admitted students who turn down HLS for another option - maybe the trend tends to be that those who get H and turn it down are more often really high GPA types, rather than high LSAT types.
Yep, this would also match what Stanford weights more (high GPA), and so the people accepted to H and go to S have high GPAs, which need to be filled with the WL.
Then again, maybe there are only a few high LSATers in the pool as it is, and they've accepted a large percentage, and so there just arent many of us that are left in the pool. Last year, it didnt look like there were any on LSN above 175 (I may be wrong...can't remember). So...maybe its just that there are so few of us that they look at us favorably. Thats at least the positive spin. I don't need to go through the negative spin though, for the sake of our sanity
Mr Bojangles, your GPA's probably high enough to get into one of the dropped out GPA spots though. Lots of people around there got in the past couple years.
