Choosing the Right Law School / Emory - Financial Aid
« on: February 10, 2005, 12:19:30 PM »
Does anyone know anything about the qualifications required for significant money at Emory, esp.  The Woodruff Fellowship?  Since it is merit based, do they just use the Index number for identifying the strongest candidates?  Numbers?

Law School Admissions / The Median Question
« on: December 29, 2004, 07:49:14 PM »
I've seen this question posted before and often wondered the same thing myself, so I'd like some opinions:

We're all familiar with the selection index number, and its importance.  We are also familiar with the median LSAT and GPA numbers, and their importance.  My question is this:

   Assume school has median LSAT = 169, median GPA = 3.7, who has a better chance
          167, 3.6 kid, or 170, 3.1 kid
   It is almost always the case that 'kid 1' has a higher index.  But neither of the numbers increase the         
   median.  'Kid 2' has a lower index (though is likely not in the presumptive deny pile), but offers a median
   increasing number. 

Who has the advantage here?
