Ronde, what makes you so confident about this? Certainly, there are going to be some people with 168s and GPAs down below the 25%...are you suggesting that on the strength of supporting the median LSAT score and being ED alone, they're going to get an offer of admission?
For the sake of this debate, let's assume a standing LSAT score of 168. There must be a GPA floor somewhere, right? -- the question is, where is it? 168/3.0? 168/3.3? 168/3.57?
Looking at last year's ED on LSN, UCLA did not reject anyone with a 168 or higher BUT those accepted still had a GPA of 3.5 or higher. (UCLA's ED was about 8% acceptance rate last year)
As for regular admission these are the list of people rejected with 168 or higher, out of hundreds of rejections. (without counting waitlists)
174//3.08 170//3.4 168//3.51 169//3.27 169//3.4 170//3.3 170//2.55 169//3.17 168//3.94
That's 9 rejections out of hundreds of rejections.
Nonetheless running a search on those with 168-174 LSAT and 3.0-3.3 GPA, there are only 5 acceptances. All of the 5 had 170 or higher LSAT though.
All in all it's not looking too great for me with a my 3.1 GPA... unless they're very intent in improving their 164 (25% LSAT). And since they normally have a high GPA level, #13 in 75% gpa, and #7 in 25% gpa, hopefully they wouldn't mind sacrificing that little bit for the sake of raising their LSAT.
