**Law School Admissions / 2007 chiashu numbers!!**

« **on:**May 01, 2008, 08:38:41 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.
