I know decisions have started rolling out so maybe someone typed something in incorrectly? Nothing jumped out at me when I looked though


They're just trying to lock in their C/O 2134.

The number of people who type "2105" "3015" "3105" or "1015" is out of this world.
That's always the first thing i look for.

Welcome!

WE = Work Experience (almost exclusively used to refer to post-UG experience)
CF = Character and Fitness

Hey benwyatt, thanks for your excellent work. Would you mind taking a look at the Harvard spreadsheet? The algorithms for GPA quartiles need to be fixed so that people in 51-74% show up correctly.

I also updated the medians on the median page to reflect the most recent class, hope that's okay.

Hey there! Columbia spreadsheet analytics seem... off. Can you check when you get a second?

I've got a couple things to check out on the sheets and I'll do it on Saturday because I'm traveling today and tomorrow with little to no ability to look into it.

Thanks folks!

Is there a defintion of what all of the terms and abbreviations in the spreadsheet mean?

There's not a dictionary lying around if that's what you're asking, but all the abbreviations are pretty commonly used around the site.

Feel free to ask if there are any that you simply cannot puzzle out yourself.

Alright. Thanks. Here we go. I'm new to the site.

LS22 Index
Softs
WE? (years)
URM?
C&F Issue?
Why UVA?
ED

What do those mean in regards to the Admission Spreadsheets?

I only noticed one thing on the CLS sheet that seemed crazy out of wack and that was the c&f thing. Fixed it.

In the future, specificity is helpful so if I missed something let me know.

LS22 Index - specific to harvard, created by someone who's not me, not all that important so don't sweat it.
Softs - Factors other than GPA and LSAT (unique work experience, cured cancer, president's son, etc.)
WE? (years) - Work Experience
URM? - Underrepresented Minority
C&F Issue? - Character and Fitness Issue
Why UVA? - Did you write a why UVA
ED - Come on, man, this one is easy. Early decision.

What do those mean in regards to the Admission Spreadsheets?

It was showing the LSAT readouts as something impossible like 103. It must have been fixed. Sorry?

Ah okay. Well it looks good now. If something else comes up, just bump this thread with the details and I'll knock it out.
