How do you guys calculate these indices?
Stanford's index is LSAT * .023 + GPA * .315 - 1.733
A number of schools ask LSAC to use a specific formula (like Stanford). Those can be found online in your LSAC documents. The title says something about "Admissions Index."
For Yale and Harvard, I just multiplied GPA by 20 and added LSAT. This method seems relatively accurate. My method for NYU was LSAT * .083 + GPA - 14.94
Thanks for that info. But one more question: once you get those numbers, how do you know if you have a chance or not? As in, what are their typical index cutoff?
Thanks again...this is a great resource.
