169/4.08. Not retaking because the 169 bested all my practice tests and included acing the most easily-improvable section of the test (logic games). Anyways, so far:

Accepted: Michigan, Northwestern, Chicago
Rejected: Harvard
Pending: Yale, Stanford

All of those schools consider the February LSAT as long as you already have a previous LSAT score to complete your application. I confirmed this with the various admissions offices via email. I appreciate your optimism but I'm pretty sure a 168 makes me an autoding at HY and a borderline candidate at the other schools. I think applying with a 171/4.0 is a pretty different (and awesome) situation.

168/4.0 Trying this cycle but probably retake and next cycle
Blanketing T14 will report results as they come

It's 96th or something like that, which is obviously extremely high, but then again a 168 is still below the 25th percentile at most of the T7. In some ways it's ridiculous that we consider ourselves reverse splitters with 168's but I think this says more about the crazy high standards we try to meet than anything else.

168 = 96th percentile
Sorry, LSAT between median and 25th for a lot of the T14 with GPA above 75th percentile.

What would you define as a reverse splitter?

I thought anything below Median LSAT and above Median GPA was reverse splitter. Obviously, whether anyone qualifies as a reverse splitter depends on the schools that they have applied to.

in that case i am a reverse splitter at Yale, Harvard, Columbia... i dont think the people who started this thread intended to see something like - Accepted: Chicago, NYU, Stanford, Boalt. Pending: Yale, Harvard. Something tells me that was not their intent.

I'm sorry if i misunderstood the purpose of this thread. My intention was just to find other people whose GPAs give them a leg up in the admissions process but who have LSAT scores that are comparatively weaker than their GPAs (at least according to the medians of the schools we're each applying to).

No worries. I think the issue is that some of the people in this thread (myself included) would be happy with that score, but I did say I trust your judgment. And this is TLS. :)

seriously.

I actually came to this thread specifically to see if there were any 168/4.0 reverse splitters. Those were my numbers before I retook. I'll be interested to see how your cycle goes, az21833 Aawaldrop.

az21833, I agreed with your original assessment. seen you all over and this is no place for either of us. being just below median one one criteria does not qualify one as a splitter/reverse splitter at all. "splitter" should be below 25th in one category, and for a broad range of schools, not just the reach ones. those are the data that will help potential applicants with a low number make an educated decision

I think they really do consider themselves reverse splitters at say HYS. I know that this forum was originally intended for people below 164, but the op of the forum changed due to people being upset and said that any "reverse splitter" can post. There should be another forum for really high reverse splitters or something so we can all be happy.

Hahaha yeah I just wanted to avoid controversy and argumentation. Maybe we should separate the threads.
