Orly? My point was that indistinguishable GPAs are going to affect application status because prestige plays a role as a soft factor at that level.
If you're going to sit here and tell me that a 3.7/171 has a better chance than a 3.9/171 from XXX state at CCN, I do not think you have a marginally tenable argument.
You are completely circular, opaque, and continually out of scope with your arguments. I agree to disagree, Mr. State.
1) My argument is substantiated by hard data - you can call it circular if you please, but you'd be hard pressed to find hard data to refute my point
2) A relatively clear, one sentence statement expressing the jist of my argument isn't opaque. I know lawyers like to find ambiguity in relatively clear language, but at least wait until you're in law school.
3) how is this out of scope? I used the numbers provided by you to prove my point. Do I think it gets closer when it's a 3.8 ivy vs. a 3.9 TTT? Yes, it does. As I stated before, UG prestige is a soft factor - it plays a marginal role in admissions decisions, but will not compensate for a poor GPA or guarantee that someone with a high GPA does exceedingly better than his peers who have even 1 or 2 more points on the LSAT.
Also, excellent use of number 2 (LinkRemoved)
