I think NYU's larger class size is also a factor. Even if their yield were exactly the same, NYU would still have to accept more students in order to reach 450. Still, I'd guess that the number of students who get into NYU and don't get into CLS is pretty minimal.


Plugging in numbers around my range gets a 13% acceptance rate for CLS and 69% for NYU with pretty large sample sizes for both. NYU has the 2nd highest acceptance rate in the T-14 after GULC. CLS is much more difficult to get into.


That's funny...my chances are only 3% better at NYU than at CLS using law school predictor.


lsp is worthless. use mylsn since it has actual data.

I wonder what happened to this kid: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/PhilosophyOrLaw.

And apparently http://lawschoolnumbers.com/countercouper/jd has no idea what happened at CLS. Random YP?

And what the hell happened here? http://lawschoolnumbers.com/cg23/jd

I don't mean to be rude/bring up bad memories but I think your case with Harvard is pretty shocking too.. I never knew JS1->straight reject was a possibility.. scary

Just a really average person behind the numbers. This outcome isn't so terrible as to make me say WTF.

Maybe. This one is hardest to explain.

That's a fair observation, and probably the reason I've been thinking about some of these anomalies.

Then while we're on the subject, this profile has always been the most worrisome to me: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/wa810smart/jd

Ditto, especially since, based upon his profile, I probably go to the same undergrad as he did and have similarly weak softs.

I'm meeting a TLSer for dranks after work, so I'll definitely have to do the run home at lunch thing. I need to know whether to drink in celebration or sorrow.

could you imagine waiting week after week for your decision while seeing people on LSN and TLS get their decisions each day. it'd drive me insane!

On the subject of people with shitty cycles, take a look at these:

I was hoping we get kappycaft1 to collect a spreadsheet of some of the worst cycles, just to give some perspective to people who are sure they're having epically bad cycles.

Sweet jesus. Carterth's cycle is a travesty. Her LORs must have said, "Do not admit this person to law school."

Edit: That, or adcoms just really despise music majors

Like I don't understand. what more could she have done with a 180 LSAT and 3.97 GPA ?
