So if you add up the vertical columns, they'll all add up to 100% (rounding errors notwithstanding) .So for example, of all of the applicants Stanford accepted, 21.5% of them scored between a 165 and a 169. (In other words, I don't care who was rejected or waitlisted--I'm only looking at the universe of those accepted to these schools.)
Oh, okay, interesting way to look at it. Of course, you're assuming that all three schools get a similar number of applicants in each range. Here's the data on total applicants in each range:LSAT Range | Harvard | Yale | Stanford
160-164 | 12% | 10% | 11%
165-169 | 30% | 23% | 33%
170-174 | 41% | 45% | 41%
175-180 | 17% | 22% | 15%
Based on this, it looks like Stanford just has less high quality applicants than Harvard or Yale. Of course, this difference isn't quite as significant as the difference shown in the percentage of admits, so perhaps it's a result of both factors. Very interesting information, either way.
Disagree. But, you're right, they have less with the highest LSAT scores.
This makes me feel sad. But then why does SLS have the same/better employment/clerking outcomes? You can't explain that!
