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
You're misreading the grid. Those are 7 out of 12 applicants who were admitted. That does not mean that they weren't accepted. More likely, the other 5 took their business somewhere else after they were accepted at Chapman.
No. You're reading it wrong. I have the ABA book in front of me. For each school it says "number of applicants" and "number admitted"... admitted 100%, for sure, omg, does *not* mean "attending*, I have no idea where you got that from.
The word is matriculate
, for those students who accept an offer of admission. That means they enroll.
As proof that you are wrong, look at UCLA's grid. If you total up the "# of admits" for each category, it comes out to 965. However, their 1L class size is 300. Where did those extra 600 students go? Is there a black market underground UCLA law school which secretly educates 1Ls? No-- they went to other law schools.
