How do they measure it now? just take the current evaluation of work experience and expand it to 33%.They don't do it quantitatively. They don't assign weights to GPAs or LSATs; they just look at them. They want high numbers, and -- yes, they value work experience. There's no formula for this.
Well then there should be. Once again, I'm not necessarily talking about the top 20 schools, maybe even the top 50.
A school ranked just outside the top 50 should not be so obsessed with improving their ranking that they don't consider an amazing resume just because the GPA is low. An incredible performance as a professional should count for as much as a great performance in school for most schools outside the top 50
Duke is probably a good enough school that they really don't have much of a problem. They will have enough amazing soft factors to go around.
