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
Who has the advantage here?
