Looking through the last few pages of this thread, I can give some insight...
I see some dings/WLs with low GPAs, and some acceptances with extremely high GPAs. This is consistent with what I know about UCLA; they weigh GPA more strongly than many T14s and seem to have some GPA cutoff that's at least above 3.0 but may be even higher. Last cycle I got WL'd at UCLA with a 3.0/170 and got accepted to UVA (attending now) with the same stats/statement.
They're not entirely predictable, but they are predictable enough that a low GPA is much more likely to get you dinged than it is at lower T14s that tend to be more splitter-friendly.
In fact I wonder if this is a reason why they're not
in the T14 now; if they took more splitters in order to boost their LSAT medians, that might be enough to pull them up a couple spots.
