Incidentally, as I glanced at the UW website to double-check the above, I found the following.
LSAT Score and GPA Ranges of 2008 J.D. ApplicantsThe first figure in each cell represents the number of admission offers made, and the number after the slash represents the total number of applications reviewed. For example, 40/115 in the second row, fifth column, indicates that of the 115 people who applied with a GPA between 3.50 and 3.74 and an LSAT score between 163-165, 40 were offered admission. These data represent 100 percent of all applications reviewed with score on the 180 test scale. This chart should not be used as a gauge of the likelihood of admission, and certainly not as a guarantee.
This information is presented to give applicants some idea of the likelihood of admission. It should be noted, however, that these data can and do change from year to year. In addition, there is some latitude within each category, so that a person presenting credentials at the upper limits of one cell might have an excellent chance for admission, while another applicant at the lower limits might only have a marginal chance. For these reasons, this chart should be used as an approximate gauge of the likelihood of admission and NOT as a guarantee.
So the chart should not be used as a gauge, but should be used as an approximate gauge. Hrm.
59/87 for GPAs from 3.5-3.74 and 166-168 got in? That's not a very high percentage.
17/46 for GPAs from 3.25-3.49 and 166-168?
40/115 for GPAs from 3.5-3.74 and 163-165?
That table is depressing.
Edit: If only my GPA were .02 higher and my LSAT 2 points higher, I'd be in the 44/44 section.
