While working at my prelaw office at BYU, I often had to make statistical reports about BYU students who have applied to law school. For some examples of what these reports looked like, and what other prelaw offices do, you can see the links below.
Eventually, I took it upon myself to try and make a tool that could search through this incredibly valuable data in a more dynamic fashion. It ended up turning into part of my Capstone project for my master's program.
Here's what the tool does:
It reports on volunteered application data from students who graduated from BYU undergrad and have applied to law school. It includes matcher, predictor (using a logistic regression), and a general year-by-year trend searching tool.
Even though this only includes BYU undergrad data, I imagine this would still be relevant for most students.

The volunteered data rate is roughly 75% of all applicants, although that number has increased sharply in recent years - something like 95%.
Not sure where your numbers will get you? Dying to know where you stand? Come have your palms read by your fellow posters!
