fordham's 1L stats are readily available online

god bless the interweb and those who are still incapable of deciphering its many great mysteries

all the same, the new usnwr comes out in march and you can then see what im telling you in hard print. but by all means, please feel free to disbelieve what i'm telling you until then.

GW cause of DC and their higher numbers (as compared with the rest of the group)
Fordham has the same numbers, and NYC > DC.

no it doesn't. fordham 75th percentile = 167, GW *median* = 167


Are you high? USNWR current #'s:

GW: 163-166
Fordham: 163-167

If anything, Fordham is *more* selective.

high? maybe. but all the same, i am able to tell the difference between data representing the current 2L class and data representing the current 1L class.

Great for GWU, but those are self-reported statistics, and we don't know what Fordham's '07 stats are. If we want to compare apples with apples, we have to go by USNWR published data.

Edit:I don't mean that sarcastically. 167 is an amazing median jump for one year.
Agreed

Fordham's 1L median is 166. Comprable to the opposite discrepancy that the two schools had last year.

Edit: That said, it's pretty amazing how far LSATs seem to have shot up across the board.

Gooo Gophers!!!  I voted for U of M because I'm a devout Gopher.  They're pretty legit, though.  Top dog in their market, unlike GW, Boston and Fordham that suck up the leftovers of superficial kids who feel like the only way they'll ever get ahead is by attending law school in one of those markets.  WUSTL deserves some respect, too...as does Emory in Atlanta.  Good luck with the leftovers.
