So do you think the inpending new rankings will have a noticable impact on the rest of the cycle? Like schools bidding up high LSAT/GPA candidates still remaining on waitlists to try to up their medians/75%? Or would they be mass rejecting in hope of lowering accetance rates?
The medians from this cycle will not be the medians that are in the rankings that will be released next month, they are the medians from last year, same with any of the other statistics.
I understand, but if one's median numbers slipped against peer schools, they will more likely under pressure to try to up this year's median, stopping the slide/keep up with the gain so to speak.
As someone with a great LSAT but a GPA that's a hair below the median, the thought of this makes me nervous (HLS stacking GPAs that are above their current median to raise it).
