I would be shocked if the median got up to 167 this year. I'm guessing 166, honestly. Maybe 165.

Really? I feel like they'll push hard for 167 and if they can't maintain that, draw the line at 166. 165 would indicate a downward trend, not just an anomalous year. Not that the resulting slight fluctuations in ranking matter, but it could deter future high stats applicants in a vicious cycle.

Sometimes I'm glad I don't understand people like that. I'm in awe.

It is very likely I'm way off base, but I just don't remember seeing them dip as low into LSATs as they have this year, at least not initially. I know LSN is far from representative, but they were much less relenting with their LSAT wall last year, and still only got a 166 median.

I don't know, I'm not hoping to see a downward trend, but I've just got a feeling that the hit in applications is going to hit schools without a major market (like Wash U, but also Iowa and some others) disproportionately hard.

There are a lottt of schools in that median range. I bet that big rankings drop hurt yield significantly last year. A recovery in this year's rankings, while meaningless for employers, could help WUSTL hit higher medians.

I would bet a fortune on WUSTL not hitting 168 this year though no matter what happens.

I don't have any hard stats to back me up, but in last years thread they were freaking out over some lower than usual LSAT and high GPA admits (much like me!) I think the same is happenin this year....after all they do have a Median GPA to worry about.

+1

Which, incidentally, is why I'm very optimistic for big money in this year's cycle. They don't want to fall too far from the 168 of ye olden days.

But yeah, I would put the chances of a 168 median around .1% - unless of course there's some crazy scholarship wall. Man, I hadn't thought of that...

This wait is getting to me, guys.

You have like a 2.5 right? That's probably low enough to hurt you in some intangible ways. I mean practically it's the same as like a 2.8 or even 3.0, but I would guess they are worried to some extent about how likely admits are to do well in LS (not saying you won't but that UIUC report talked about how they placed a lot of emphasis on ugpa predicting LS success).

Same. If scholarships don't come out tomorrow, I'm going to have to sleep with Jack Daniel. He's not a gentle lover, but he gets the job done.

Well...I said this in another thread but I have abouts as good of a reason as any for my Gpa. So much so that my UG took some courses off and I graduated with a higher GPA. but the LSAC counted those. I am a few years removed from college too. Plus I know someone got in with 28k last year with my exact numbers. On the other hand Im scared and convinced ill be rejected forever.

I think there is a huge difference between 3 and sub-3, but I haven't seen as much of a performance gap between 2.5 or 2.8 for example on LSN. As a similar applicant to wannabe, really our only hope is schools that don't have a hard GPA floor, which for many T-50 is around a 3. If you can just get them to read your application, I think many 165+/sub-3 applicants have some kind of valid reason for why they performed so poorly in UG. I mean as dumb as the LSAT is, there is some correlation with intelligence.

Can OP make a poll asking everyone if ill get in or not?

Eta: don't you have the same Gpa as me? Wouldn't you getting in show there's no gpa floor?

There isn't very much data available for such extreme splitters, but from the few applicants it looks like 2.8/167 and you're in; 2.5 and... You're getting WLed or out - at WUSTL anyway.

Samara's splitter thread also lists WUSTL as having a soft floor at 2.8.

That may have been the case in the past, but in the past few years there is not an indication on LSN of a 2.8 floor..
