Really? Reading the stats on your profile, you're right at both their medians. Great shot.


Right at both medians for Berkeley= death sentence unless URM or amazing softs.

That doesn't even make logical sense, but okay. I have no axe to grind, I'm a splitter.

With black box schools... it makes sense.

Hey guys.

Some of you may have seen some stats-based stuff I have been posting in other forums. I have been working a lot on it, trying to kill time while application decisions trickle in. Most of the stuff I did over the last couple days was based on the last cycle, or the last two cycles. I've started to put together individual school analysis based on ALL the available data on LSN now, so I'll post them to the corresponding school's threads. This would probably have been more useful/interesting for people a few months ago, but what the heck.

Image

This table is based on logistical regression analysis of data from Law School Numbers. It includes all accepted and rejected applicants from the 2003/4 cycle up until the present (2012/2013) cycle. It does not include waitlisted applicants (unless they indicated that they had been ultimately accepted or rejected). Please keep in mind the nature of the data when interpreting these results.

Also, keep in mind that this analysis is based only on the outcomes for the indicated school’s applicant pool compared to each other, and does not necessarily mean that “numbers aren’t important” to any particular school.

Eventually, once I've slogged through everything, I'll compile lists and, where they'd be helpful, charts comparing data across schools. I'm no stats expert, but I picked up some stuff in grad school, and I enjoy it.

Applied in October and still UR
LSAT 164/172
GPA 3.5
Not a URM.

I resisted looking at forums until today, but I caved in a big way and read the thread from the beginning. I appreciate all the information everyone has provided, and thought I should reciprocate. I hope the silence today means no bad news for anybody.

Elterrible,

I wanted to thank you for your analysis-it has been very helpful.

Why is the bloodbath assumed at 5PM btw? Is there a history of Berkeley always releasing decisions at that time? (for what it's worth, history would've shown it happening yesterday or last friday)

Hi all,

Berkeley is my top choice for law school since I want to stay in California. Currently in Faculty Review. Any thoughts about sending a letter of continued intent to further express interest or should I just let it sit?

Any advice appreciated,

Berkeley needs to either reject all the non-FR waiters or accept them all. There is no other option as far as I can see. And they need to do it ASAP. This is ridiculous.

Oh no, I'm still on Committee First Read. I just meant that I could say that in my LOCI if I get WL'd or something.

You must really want California. I'd take Cornell over USC in a heartbeat.

there's a few of us on here- goden and myself included- who are cali or bust. Ideally we're cali biglaw->cali midlaw->other biglaw->other midlaw. I think goden said that somewhere, can't find it now.

If you want Southern CA why would anyone take Cornell over USC with money? That doesn't make much sense to me. If someone wanted Northern CA or COA was closer then that's a different story.

Eta: also, Ithaca.
