I have to say, I just love the LSP. Aside from being a useful resource, it's an unlimited source of science fiction fun. I can't stop plugging in my actual numbers and then comparing them to dozens of alternate histories (What would it be like if I got these grades this term, or these grades, or if I dropped this term, or this course, or was a URM under any of these circumstances?) As a crazy splitter and transfer student, there are lots of opportunities for this kind of thing. It may be unhealthy.

YCR, you may want to consider putting a disclaimer on LSP stating that you're not responsible for the effects of overexposure (including obsession, anxiety, nausea, anger, hypertension, and intent to tort people).

I think I'll add a forum selection clause, too, and a disclaimer disclaiming any type of warranty. :mrgreen:
Too late, I'm suing you. Just as soon as I finish calculating what my UGPA would have been if I had extrapolated it from my kindergarten grades.

USC is another one-off type of school. My 164/3.85 has me at strongly consider but, in reality, I'm a reject or WL. They have a nearly impenetrable wall at 165.

You guys know that LSAC has a predictor based on last yrs cycle.

Except that the LSAC calculator does not include information for schools without published admission index formulas (Like a lot of the T14). Also YCrevolution took into account other factors for schools, such as unofficial cutoffs, in adjusting the stats models to fit closer to the actual results for schools.

i think it is based on 2 years ago, "Likelihood of admission in Fall 2008." i dont know it is unclear to my humble RC skills.

My advisor scoffed at the predictor. And that is one yr ago not two.

I'm pretty sure we'll applying for 2010 admission, right?

I'm actually applying for fall 2009 admission. Still hoping someone will drop out after midterms so I can get their seat off the waitlist.

edit: or does my reverse splitter status hurt prediction accuracy a whole lot?
I think it overestimates. You and I have nearly identical numbers. I don't think I have a 41% chance at Georgetown. :-( Or a 64% shot at USC. And I think I have a much higher than 62% shot at BU.

The LSAC predictor is just......odd. I'm not sure why it gives me a ~25% at Penn, but a better than a 50% at NYU.

It says I have a better chance at Harvard than Penn.
