Hey, I don't know if the decision date stuff was uploaded into the file properly.  I see the header but not the actual graph.  Sounds like a great idea though!  Can't wait to see them!

What browser are you using?  I've tested it on Mac with Firefox and Safari.  I'll test it later today with IE and Firefox on Windows.  Thanks for letting me know.

IE

That might be the problem.  Do you have Firefox on your computer?  It really is a much better browser.  :-)  In any case, I'll try to see if I can fix it for IE.

Law School Applications / Re: 2007 chiashu numbers!!

Oh heck, I've put up 2008 numbers as well.  http://www.chiashu.com/newsitems/show/2  tells you how to see all the probabilities, but after that, if you want to see the numbers over the years, just go to "View My Schools" under "Law Schools."

The 2008 numbers are not final, but they should be pretty close.

Law School Applications / 2007 chiashu numbers!!
« on: May 01, 2008, 11:38:41 AM »
I have finally assembled the 2007 numbers. It was a much more difficult process because LSAC has not published their data either.

I also took a look at Law School Numbers, but I noticed there is a big sampling problem - people tend to put their numbers up more often when they're accepted.  For example, for some schools in the T14, there are more accepted than rejected applicants on LSN.  This is a sampling bias that leads to disappointment.

In any case, I used both a statistical model and some computer science model-training techniques to come up with the 2007 numbers. It looks like LSAC might be putting up 2007 data this weekend as well. I can compare my results with theirs and I should be able to put up 2008 numbers soon after that. Stay tuned.

Law School Applications / Safeties, Targets, Reaches
« on: April 23, 2008, 12:05:41 PM »
Hey, I've finally gotten around to looking at both what's on LSAC and what people enter to help people determine what's a safety, a target, and a reach.  I've created graphs to help you see.  Below are the graphs for T14 (sorry if I mess up the order)

Yale: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/34
Harvard: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/54
Stanford: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/185
Columbia: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/97
NYU: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/144
Chicago: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/93
Boalt: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/81
Penn: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/160
Michigan: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/131
Duke: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/110
Cornell: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/99
UVa: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/18
Northwestern: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/151
Georgetown: http://www.chiashu.com/schools/show/47

Above green generally means "Safety," below red is probably a "Reach," and in between means it's a target, but of course closer to green is better.

Not pretty yet, but if you know how to read it it's very useful:

Here's the graph for Harvard

2007 numbers are not here yet.  I'm working on it.  Talking to a statistics PhD to see how I can get those numbers since LSAC doesn't seem to want to update their website.

But the website is in a new format and I'm giving away an iPod Shuffle.
