Sweet! I have been complete since the 13th, so they must have wanted you more than they want me! :) Congratulations again.

Does anyone else think it's weird that the majority of accepted applicants so far (at least according to lawschoolnumbers.com) are below the median in either LSAT or GPA or both? I mean I am excited for everyone who has been accepted, but isn't it sort of unusual to accept those with lower numbers first?

It makes me think somethings odd with thier numbers, because their admissions standards didnt be used to be quite so high and then they all of a sudden jumped to the highest off all the penn tier 2s...

Where are you seeing these numbers? According to the TLS ranking chart, the 75th percentile GPA at Temple is 3.65, and their high LSAT is 164. Nova's numbers, respectively, are 3.64 and 163. I'm not trying to say that you're wrong- I just want to know if I am looking at outdated stats. Thanks!

No you're right, I stand corrected.

However, I know their numbers are much higher than Pitt (157-159-161) and a bit higher than Penn State (although that might change). But I AM sure they they have gotten higher recently. And then theres still the question... why all these below 25% acceptances ? o.O

or, more to the point, why all these below-25% acceptances and very few above-median acceptances? Like, there are some folks on LSN who are still pending with LSATs into the 170s and perfectly good GPAs. Why weren't they accepted first?

Or, it could just be reporting bias. Perhaps for 170s nova is a safety school, so they dont bother updating b/c they dont care. Where as below 25% are super excited, so post right away about acceptance.

Always beware of teh_math and teh_stat

Haha ok, but what about me? My LSAT is two points higher than 88% of the admits on LSN, and my application went complete earlier than most of them too. Sure, I might be rejected because of other reasons, and I'm not AT ALL saying that I am a more worthy applicant than anyone else, regardless of numbers.

But I am an example of someone with higher numbers who is very excited to be accepted to ANY law school, and if I got in to Nova today I would totally report it enthusiastically. Surely there must be others like me, right?

Especially because Nova is admitting people this early who are all regular decision applicants (no EA, ED) it just seems strange that they don't seem to have started with the auto-admits.

In via status checker on 11/30. Complete 11/2. No UR ever on the checker. 3.92/168 non-traditional.

Edit: It was actually probably 11/30 not 12/1 since I am currently 8 hours ahead...

NICE! That's what I'm talking about! Congratulations on the acceptance, and on destroying my theory about their admissions tactics! :mrgreen:

Oh, and thank you for your military service.

Some of it may be the lack of exposure for this thread. I briefly searched for a Villanova thread yesterday and didn't find one...and assumed that one had to exist so I didn' create one.

I actually realized after posting that I had already counted you as the one anomaly on LSN. You're the only admit on LSN with a higher LSAT than me- which is why I said I was higher than 88%. Still, I think it's just a weird coincidence. Congrats again, and here's hoping these acceptances keep coming!

P.S. Is that a fierce Military Police K-9 in your avatar? :)
