The actual algorithm is is sort of complicated, but it weighs LSAT and GPA differently, calculates an index and then makes adjustments to it based on a number of rules.
i would say lose the graph, it's kind of annoying to use. instead, output in text form.
Thanks - there is a "next" button at the top, but it's not very clear (you're not the only one who didn't see it). I'm going to see if I can get more on one page, though.
Although I think you underestimate the impact using the quartiles to generate a mean may have on your data, I do think it's pretty cool to see a positive association between GPA and LSAT at the top ranked schools, and a negative association at the lowest ranked schools.Consider altering the scales somewhat - no need to have a scale that is so much larger than the data range.Also, why 4 separate charts based upon rankings? Is there some sort of limit to the data points you can enter in the software you are using?QuoteThe actual algorithm is is sort of complicated, but it weighs LSAT and GPA differently, calculates an index and then makes adjustments to it based on a number of rules.What in the world do you mean? How and why are you weighting the results? Something is very wrong: a 4.0 with a 170 is considered a reach (yellow) at schools 62-67 (which shows 10 data points? for 5 schools? WTF?) even though this is clearly a lock at all of these schools based upon the averages you've provided.Give me a bit an I'll see if I can figure out a way for you to use the quartile data without screwing it up...
oh, i saw it. i just want to see some of the schools even lower (down to 100 or so). i like the format of it. i think it's really easy to understand what it's trying to tell the user. i'm not sure about the accuracy (i'm a splitter...so nothing is really all that accurate for me, anyway). if it's accurate, and has more schools, i think it can be a fantastic calculator because of the ease of use.
