George Mason...Right on Schedule

George Mason...Right on Schedule
« on: February 16, 2005, 08:21:05 PM »
The rejection is not much of a surprise. But I have to admire the accuracy of the information I got from them last week. They said they would start sending letters out on 2/15. And sure enough, one day later, here was the very thin envelope I had been waiting for.

Only 5 more schools pending now. And supposedly Brooklyn's letter is in the mail. But I'm starting to get skeptical of that after nearly a week of waiting for it.

I really wish there was meaningful updated data on law school admission statistics.

George Mason is the perfect example in the ABA Approved law school book I have (2004 Edition). George Mason is listed as having the following stats:

3.50 - 3.74 and 160-164: 83/102 admitted.

Meaning that in total only 19 people were rejected with these statistics during the entire admissions cycle. However on law school numbers.com already the stats are 6/10 for admitted for this year. If this sample holds thats over a 20% increase in selectivity! People are getting into Emory and Fordham before G-Mason, is something wrong here?

Yes, you're using a sample size of 10 people.

The George Mason viewbook claims they are the "fastest rising school in USNWR".  Maybe it's true.
