*The one exception was for below median LSAT going from 50-75 -> 75+ GPA. But that looks to be mostly a product of very small sample size, and I don't think LSATs of 168 and below are anyone's definition of YP anyway.
Where did you find this chart?
The only thing about the chart that doesn't strike me as convincing is the GIANT LSAT swath from 171-180. Isn't the thought of YP that these candidates would look good for HYS? If that's the case, I think this may be more telling:
GPA 3.8 and above with LSAT 170-173 (sample size 587):
Same GPA with LSAT >173 (sample size 288):
It seems pretty clear that if you're looking good for Harvard or close to $100,000 from CCN, then Penn seems more likely to throw you on a waitlist. If your chances at HYS diminish and you're only getting around $50,000 from CCN, Penn seems more likely to say "come on out to Philadelphia, friend!"
ETA: I see this is my 199th post, and given that I have 9 applications pending and it's past mid-January, I will be saving number 200 for a decision post!
