How accurate is Chiashu?
« on: April 18, 2006, 11:13:15 PM »
How accurate do you all think Chiashu or LSAC.org are in predicting your chances.  My numbers go like this:

SMU: 15%
Texas Tech: 53%
Mercer: 32%
Arkansas: 35%
Gonzaga: 60%

Those are all the schools that I have still up in the air.  I was waitlisted at all of them.  So, I'd be interested to know what you guys think will be the level to which they will dip into their WL.

Most people say they get into nearly all the schools where they are 50% or better and rarely get in somewhere lower.

Pretty accurate. I got into 2 schools that were around 40%, one with a half scholarship.

See... that's what I've heard too - that it's pretty accurate.  I've seen most people say that if you're over 50%, you're probably in.  If you're under 50%, you're probably out.  However, I've been waitlisted at 3 schools, deferred at 2, and accepted at none.  My Chiashu numbers are listed at the top.  Have I just been freaking out for no reason all day thinking that waitlists = delayed rejection.  In other words, does anyone know how deep schools (mine in particular if you have them or schools in general) dip into their waitlists and/or deferred candidates?

I, on the other hand only got into schools that are 70%. I got waitlisted at 2 50%ers. I considered contesting the rejections, but I am encouraged to stay where I am going.

Did you have any helpful factors, Geddon?

I guess, Chaisu tells you if you were a soft reject/accept.

I see waitlist as a delayed rejection, they are only going to need a handful of you probably.
