Hi all.

Just an fyi we are working on a calendar of dates when applications are released and will put it up on our blog when it is done. I'll let everyone know via twitter and on here once it is done. These things are a bit slower to do than it may sound, because we have to call a bunch of schools and be very precise and redundant with our wording -- as experience has taught us you often get a bunch of wrong dates given to you until you clearly establish you are looking for the date the applications are released, not accepted or due etc. But we on it!

Glad people found it interesting! I realize lsn has more info, but I found this to be an interesting subset. I plan on adding CO 2020 when we start getting info rolling in.

Anyone else having trouble entering personal data onto the awesome dropbox spreadsheet? Is there a "trick" to it? I've tried opening with different browsers, but the yellow fields seem to be fixed at points that I WISH i was entering, but alas - I must put in lower #'s! Thanks!!

How accurate would you say this is? Because if this is accurate you have made me extremely optimistic/excited, whereas everyone else is saying I need to retake... Good stuff regardless! Thank you!


Tough to say, its self-reported data and its only from the TLS userbase. I'd like to think people wouldn't lie about stuff but who knows. You can always see the raw numbers for number of other people with similar stats that were accepted / rejected / waitlisted which probably provides a better picture (i.e. if there are only 2 people with similar info it may not be that applicable.

I think you need to download to use it. I think the dropbox preview just shows a static image of whatever data I was playing around with last when I uploaded it. Not 100% on that though.

idk if this is a subset. ive looked at a couple ranges and your spreadsheet had more applicants reporting results than mylsn did for those ranges. which could mean its even more useful than mylsn. ill take a close look at the data over a few ranges before coming to that conclusion though.

does anyone ITT know of any good statistical metrics that would be useful in comparing the mylsn data and TexasENG's data? we dont have to nerd out about this... but we can

Lol it's just that if I put my numbers in I am 3/3 at Yale, even though I'm nearly 9 points below their admitted LSAT average


are you URM? bc URM sample sizes are pretty small for even reasonably large LSAT/GPA ranges on mylsn and this worksheet. Its pretty likely that you would get divergent predictions from the two databases

i doint think anyone would lie either, but i think there may be a bias towards reporting acceptances. i suspect that people are less likely to be proactive about reporting rejections. but i suppose mylsn faces this problem too.

yeah actually i just looked at it. 166 and 3.8-4.0 gets you

on mylsn:
Y - 0/8
H - 1/19
S - 0/11

on the worksheet:
Y - 3/3
H - 8/11
S - 4/4

not sure what to make of that

Dang...I tried downloading the dropbox spreadsheet and now I can enter my stats in the yellow areas, but it doesn't seem to change the results! Any other suggestions?
