Chapman says they don't use index numbers?
« on: December 03, 2004, 02:29:10 AM »
On their admissions website, Chapman states that they do not use an index system. But in LSN and the LSAC Index sheet, they are listed as having an index formula. So what could they mean by "not using an index system"? Or are they just saying that while they secretly rank applicants by index scores?

Any ideas?

What they are probably saying is that they don't use a system of automatic admits/denys, i.e., they consider non-numerical factors to be quite important as well. In other words, they most likely use the formulated numbers, but they don't want applicants to get freaked out about them.
