Index Formula for UNC Chapel Hill

Does anyone have an idea of the formula used by UNC to determine the index score for applicants?  And/or which is weighted more, LSAT score or GPA?

Thanks.

All indexes can be found on the LSAC site, but if you create a profile on lawschoolnumbers.com and punch it in, the site will caculate the index for you (though it rounds to the tenth). UNC is considered more GPA friendly than most.

If your index is above 250 according to lawschoolnumbers you probably have a decent chance of getting admitted.  The higher you go over 250, the better your chances are, especially if you are a resident of North Carolina.

Definitely more weight given to undergrad GPA.  Other factors can overcome your index score however, like URM status, WE, graduate degrees, etc.
