index numbers?
« on: October 13, 2008, 04:48:26 PM »
so i've calculated some index numbers, based on the index formulas i got from my academic summary report page (on lsac).  and..........what exactly does this index number mean??!  is there a "cut-off" number, or anything like "if you have ____, the odds of admission are in your favor"?  thanks

I'm not sure. Your best off calling the school and asking them. There probably is cut-off score.

Most schools say they don't use numerical cutoffs, whether they use an index # or not. They likely use the index to sort candidates, so those with a higher index are presumptive admits while those with a lower index are presumptive rejections.
