LSAC Midmonth update? Too late?
« on: April 20, 2004, 02:12:35 AM »
Oh man, I am so curious to see these numbers but they keep holding out on posting them, the ABA national stuff on the website I mean.  I want to compare them to last years and see how ridiculous things have gotten.

I'm eagerly awaiting the release of the 2003 data as well.  It should be "ridiculous" -- but I don't thin as ridiculous as it really is this year.

You enter your GPA and your LSAT, and select a percentage of acceptance (90%, 60-80, 40-60, 20-40, below 10%).  Then it tells you what schools accepted people with the scores you entered.

For example...

I enter 3.0 and 160 and 60-80%

The list of schools accepted 60-80% of the applicants that applied with a 3.0 and a 160 LSAT...

It gives you an idea of what your chances of getting accepted are.

The only problem is that the numbers getting ready to come out are from 2003's admissions. That means that the numbers everyone used to apply this year were from 2002's admissions.  And, as we all know, the numbers for 2004's admissions are more competitive than 2002's numbers.  So, we're trusting that 2003's numbers will be more accurate...

make sense?

Anyway...the site says mid April...well, that's here now...and about gone.

Judging from my experience with LSAC in the past and how they "missplaced" all of my letters of recommendation, I would bet that mid April means between May and June. But, they can do whatever they want since they have no competition.

Let's all send email asking them when it's going to be up...

lsacinfo@lsac.org

To Whom It May Concern,

Your website states that the 2005 version of the "Online Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools will be available in mid-April 2004." 

Today is April 21st.

What methodology do you use to determine the middle of the month?  Do you mean anytime between the 1st and the 30th?  Do you divide the month into thirds, fourths?

Please notify my office of when you expect that you will really have the 2005 version of the Online Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools available on your website.

Yours Truly,
