Of that I have no clue, but I was also wondering how much weight do these soft factors hold? For pre-meds, basically everyone has 3.8/36 so soft factors are very important... What is it like for law?

You can sort of see on LSN which schools have admissions that are a bit all over the place, and those are generally the schools that weigh soft factors more heavily.  For better of for worse, probably mostly for worse, most law schools are pretty damn numbers focused.

The most selective schools are probably the most focused on soft factors because they can get people with soft factors and great numbers.  Yale could fill its class with 3.9+/175+ kids, but they don't, because they'd rather have people with 3.8+/170+/amazing soft factors.
