Consider yourselves warned.There are certainly plenty of fake posters, but I tend to feel like there aren't enough in the middle ranges to really skew the results (there are a lot of 4.0/180s, and a handfull of 2.0/130 types who claim to be in at HLS, but those are easy to ignore). Of course, I tend to search for people with stats similar to mine and see how they fared, so I'm looking at each entry pretty closesly, and that makes it easier to spot and ignore the fakes.
maybe im just getting disillusioned by all of the conflicting info out there, but it seems like all of these calculators try to make sense out of what nobody can know. even the admit/deny grids on aba seem hard to believe. campbell, a tier 3, shows just 7 of 12 people in the 160-65/3.0-3.24 block getting in. much less than virtually all tier 2 schools and similar to some tier 1s
