When I see that statistics about the numbers of applications schools like Harvard and Yale I always wonder how there can be 8000 people with numbers that give them even a remote chance of being admitted. I wonder if a lot of people who don't even have the prayer of a chance apply? I mean, really, how many people have LSAT scores in the top 1%? That depends, of course, on how many people take the LSAT but there would have to be 800,000 testtakers for there to be 8000 people in the top 1%.
So I guess a lot of people who don't stand a chance apply which makes me wonder why do they bother?
