Not sure if this is accurate. USNWR weighs GPA at 0.10 and LSAT at 0.125, so I imagine schools would act accordingly:
That is what I have read and what the index scores I have seen seem to suggest. Keep in mind that the LSAT, unlike GPA is a standard way to compare applicants and is the most predictive measure of 1L success.
Do you have a link to this source?

This unconfirmed Iowa index formula seems to confirm that also:
Univ. Iowa Index Calculation:
(LSAT*.876) + (GPA*9.621) -.407 = Index
GPA % 19.62
Do you think GW dropped in this year's ranking because they didn't maintain their index median?
