FYI: I added additional analysis in the Harvard spreadsheet specific to JS1's. It shows the percentage of TLSers who have received one, as well as average and minimum LSAT and GPA metrics.

+1 Sadly that makes these spreadsheets not as useful as they could be...

Although that might make the "days until..." numbers more relevant.

I would pay good money to LSAC if it can tell me the equivalent of the data in the spreadsheets for all applicants.

I'm sure this was already covered somewhere, but what constitutes "Below Average", "Average", or "Above Average" softs?

And apologies, my ignorance is showing :lol:

we have no general consensus and there was quite the discussion on it. HOWEVER if you look at the "Q&A with a former admissions officer" thread in the admissions forum i think some thoughts are in there.

the federal government is much much worse. I have a spreadsheet at work that has over 8k acronyms in it. Most of the time there is multiple meanings for each acronym too
