Distance from GPA/LSAT medians, which is more important?

Postby Duramax80 » Fri Jan 06, 2012 7:58 pm

Non URM
2.68 LSDAS GPA
160 LSAT

University of South Carolina: (3.04-3.64) (156-161)
LSU: (3.14-3.6) (155-160)
University of Miami: (3.16-3.6) (156-160)
Mercer University: (3.03-3.62) (153-158)
University of Mississippi: (3.26-3.69) (151-158)
University of Missouri: (3.06-3.76) (157-161)

Do I have a chance at any of these schools?

I am well below the 25% GPA for all of these schools, but I am either above, at, or 1 point under the 75% LSAT... I have no idea how strong of a candidate that makes me. Any ideas?

You're a splitter. Splitters' cycles are hard to predict. Some schools have pretty hard GPA floors below which they rarely drop no matter what your LSAT or softs, some have soft floors they'll break for URMs or really impressive LSATs, and some have no floors. The graphs on LSN can give you a pretty good idea.
