QUESTION
In the school profile, "LSAT/GPA (Class of 2009)" where is the data coming from?

Is there any way to look at applications that have been updated only for those with a status of WL or Accepted or whatever?  I could do this on the old one but can't find a way to filter them now.


There isn't currently. I'll add it to the to do list. It shouldn't be time consuming to do at all.

It seems like the graphs no longer have that function that only shows 2.8/160+

Unless I'm missing something.


That is correct. This will be back shortly, however, but in a different way. Instead, you'll be able to do a custom drilldown rather than having us choose what's best for you. I don't think a full search is necessary (though it's worth floating the idea), but it will at least be drillable by urm/int/nontrad, lsat, and gpa.

I don't like how "close up" the feel is now. It looks more confused. I liked it better when you could, for the most part, see everything about someone on one screen

Tastes vary, that's for sure. The reason it has that feel to you, however, is that studies show that small fonts are not good for keeping a user's attention (nor good for the eyes!). Attention is important for us, however, because we want to keep you all clicking around for ad revenue.

In any event, there is actually more screen real estate being used (I want to say 8% more).


Also, can we get rankings back on the Top Users tab?

Ugh. Looks like that line got commented out. It'll be there shortly.


In the school profile, "LSAT/GPA (Class of 2009)" where is the data coming from?

Those are the Class of 2009 (entered in August 2006) statistics from the ABA guide released in 2007. The recent guide (with the Class of 2010) should be up sometime in the near future (that is Anthony's department).



Thanks for all the great comments everybody. We really appreciate it.

What about being able to comment on profiles?  It looks like they're all disabled, my I checked my privacy settings and its open for comments.

I just tried to comment on someone's profile and got the following error message:

Cheers for all the hardwork and updates. I think I saw you mention this above - we'll now be able to sort info on the graphs by international student status? That was one thing I always wanted, to be able to just look at international student applications....though maybe that was always available and I just couldn't figure it out?

I think I'm going to make that an image. That should help make it more clear.

I'm having a problem logging on. My name is the same as on here, and when I do I get this:

There was a problem with the information you submitted. Please try again.
You can do an account recovery here.

I tried for an account recovery, but it sent me the password I had typed in, and that didn't work. So it obviously knows my name (I type that in to get the password sent to my e-mail) and my password, and has them connected, but all i get is the above response when I try to log in.
