I was told by Santa Clara that there is no difference in liklihood of admission to their full time and part time programs. But if they don't lower their standards for and thus make it easier to get into their part time program then why the drop in UGPA (see below)? Though the LSAT numbers are close, why would there be any difference at all? I wonder if because of differing median age for incoming students from one program to the next they correspondingly 'age' the data, considering UGPA less important for older students. Any other ideas?
75th percentile UGPA/LSAT: 3.60/161
25th percentile UGPA/LSAT: 3.21/157
75th percentile UGPA/LSAT: 3.37/160
25th percentile UGPA/LSAT: 2.98/156
In any case, I note a similar situation applies to the University of San Diego and would expect the pattern to hold for all schools with full time and part time programs. Does anyone know otherwise?
