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:


Goshhh, I guess

Looking at LSN for the 2014-2015 cycle (since the data set for 2015-2016 was abnormally small), we see 60 applicants reporting >= 173 and >= 3.89. Of those, 51 reported receiving a decision (ding/WL/admit). Of those 51, 23 (~45.1%) were accepted, 10 (~19.6%) were WLed, and 18 (~35.3%) were rejected.

But you see, that doesn't give me a good outlook, like these rosy 50% numbers above. I want to live in my fantasy world where I have a great shot of getting in :cry:


If it makes you feel better, when I put in my GPA (at 75th) and LSAT (above 75th) it gives me a 25% chance. I'm hoping i's just not useful with a sample size of like 4....

I think above both medians nets you a 50% shot. After that, it stops mattering.

Seems about right, but the sample sizes also get uselessly small. At that point, knowing nothing about softs, years out of school, etc...predicting is useless

So, I guess we can stop refreshing our emails, right? Seems like this wave (or trickle) isn't really going anywhere.

While LSN may give me a 27% shot and myLSN may give me a 12% shot, this 45% is what I will cling to as I throw my lot in with numbers above mine. Thank yoooou!

Heya! Yup, gravitating towards panic like a moth to light. I mean let's be real, if I'm waitlisted from Stanford, I don't have a shot in hell at Yale. And yet here I am, continuing to freak the fuck out like I juuuuuuuuuuuuust might. lmfao

I don't think that's the case at all, fwiw.

Does anyone else regress to toddler stage when stressed out? I've been pounding candy and kiddie food, no manly stuff like wine or bacon
