But....does everyone realize that the people on LSN is a tiny little sliver of the whole applicant pool? It's somewhere around 5% to 10%. So to look at that site and say that you'll never get in because XYZ didn't get in last year is kind of ridiculous. I've been reading these boards for a couple months and it just makes me want to laugh out loud every time some high horse 0L comes on to a board and tells someone they'll never get in to ABC Law School. Numbers can be an indicator, but seeing as how none of us are on an admissions committee, we really have no idea.
sure numbers may be an "indicator"
but as an 0L that's gotten into a few schools already and knows a bunch of people in law school (and how their cycles went), it is you that makes me want to laugh. Of course numbers aren't everything
but you better have a fucking INCREDIBLE story to tell...http://duke.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/0809/
statistically speaking, I'm sure that you can report a confidence interval of say 90% or so? based on 25-75%'s
I'm not saying numbers are everything, but don't come here and kid yourself, they mean more than anything else by FAR
