Admission Index Information Sheet

On LSAC, they have this admissions index, which takes your lsat score and gpa and multiplies them by some factor and adds a constant. Does anyone know how law schools read this index number? Or why my school isn't listed?

some schools won't reveal their index to LSAC which is why it isn't listed.  they don't want people to know that they're a GPA whore or a LSAT whore

if you create an account on lawschoolnumbers.com, it will calculate your index (when available) automatically and then you can look at who applied to the same schools with indices like yours last year, and whether they got in or not.

Thanks, I feel so stupid because I thought that was for undergrad, which would explain why mine wasn't on there.
