seriously lets find a way to break ties- i know its all relative to whoever is #1- but im sure there is a way----maybe make rep scores 1-10 instead of 1-5? that might allow a little more seperation--- maybe use both lsat median and midpt in determing the lsat amount

midpoint=median.

Depends on how define midpoint. A range of numbers 1 to 10 has a midpoint 5. But if the set is 1,2,2,2,6,10, then the median is 2. If you mean midpoint as in "middle number," then 2 is the midpoint. If you mean midpoint as in "point in the middle of the range" then it's 5. Of course, if the numbers are equally distributed (say, consecutive) then midpoint always = median = mean.

Fair enough.

Midpoint is a highly manipulable data piece, then, and shouldn't be used.
