Maybe they're just playing hard to get. Come on NYU, it's ok to text me every 10 minutes!

I'm not sure if everyone goes UR2, but I went UR2 a couple days before I was admitted. Unclear if there is any definitive correlation between the two, though.

Why should they admit people when they can WL, see if they go to other schools, and admit off a WL?

Went complete on 12/13 and UR on 12/15. Haven't moved at all since then. My numbers make me almost surely an auto-ding, so what's the hold up? Anyone else in this situation?

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.

I just wanted to express how much I love this thread. Like peanut butter and chocolate. As in the chocolate chips and skippy I used to microwave together in a bowl as a kid and eat with a spoon.

May our applications turn out as amazingly as every one of those bowls did.

You're asking if a scholarship to attend one of the top law schools in the country, a scholarship which is named after a railroad tycoon no less, is prestigious?

Eta: I think NYU and/or your scholarship letter can answer these questions better than we can.
