Maybe this is the new normal. No waves anymore (even if those were always quite small by wave standards), just a random Poisson process of admission offers, whenever the faculty send back a file here and there.

I wonder what % of applicants are above both medians. It wouldn't surprise me if it was sub 20%

I have a hard time believing that since they reject quite a few people above both medians. But Y will do what Y will do....

Per MS9's data yesterday, there are 609 applicants at 174+ LSAT. Assuming all of these people applied to Yale and half are above median GPA, that's ~10% of apps.

On LSN, 22 applicants report > 173 LSAT and > 3.93 GPA. This is out of 263 reported applicants total. (~8.4%)

Let's be even more liberal in our assumptions. Since they got high LSATs, let's say all are above median GPA. That would still be 20%, which means it would be possible for all to go to faculty review.

This def makes me feel better.

so about 300. They must reject at a fair number of them then, right?

But I don't think all go to faculty review since Y admits a fair number of people BELOW median also (obviously, by definition)

Median GPA for c/o 2019 is 3.89, btw

Looking at LSN for the 2014-2015 cycle (since the data set for 2015-2016 was abnormally small), we see 28 applicants reporting > 173 and > 3.93. Of those, 23 reported receiving a decision (ding/WL/admit). Of those 23, 13 (~56.5%) were accepted, 2 (~8.7%) were WLed, and 8 (34.8%) were rejected.

so around 50% chance for people above both medians. I would expect it to be similar for people above/at 75s

Ah, thanks for the correction.

Looking at LSN for the 2014-2015 cycle (since the data set for 2015-2016 was abnormally small), we see 44 applicants reporting > 173 and > 3.89. Of those, 37 reported receiving a decision (ding/WL/admit). Of those 37, 16 (~43.2%) were accepted, 4 (~10.8%) were WLed, and 17 (~45.9%) were rejected.

Can you do this analysis including the medians (so at/above medians)? I'm literally dead on both medians and want hope! :lol:

From the last 4 cycles, for an applicant with a 174-180 and 4.0+, there's a 65% chance of acceptance. That jumps to 75% when you drop it to the last 2 cycles.

Also, I would be willing to bet that those that did not report a decision were much more likely to have been WL'ed/rejected.
