It looks like the graphs are real-time. I updated a couple of schools and the changes took place right away. He was saying that they would probably be run overnight and archived. I guess this makes it even more useful.

Sweeeeeetttt.

I have to say - the graphs are really cool.  You can see no only who is applying but also whether the school favors LSAT or GPA - or whether they emphasis non-numeric components (look for mixed results).

Even if some people are lying I think the graphs present a really good picture of each school's admissions process.  Well done guys.

anyone have any guess as to how many of these people are lying? 

i saw a 2.9/160 get accepted at columbia.  realistic? 

trying to keep optimistic, but the graphs are now killing me...i just dont fit into the general acceptance area for the schools i want to attend.   :'(

i guess i should be doing work instead of checking the stats every 10 min...

The graphs help put things in perspective, and make the outliers seem less important.  The one thing I'm noticing most of all is that a lot of people just throw their money away, applying to schools where they end up firmly in the reject group, not even near the admitted cluster.
