OK- how does the LSAC likelihood calculator work?  I mean, what is considered a target, safety, and reach by percentage?

good questions...i haven't figured it out except for intuitively...

some of the 'likelihood' band are one quarter inch wide....I think however, if the center of the likelihoo band is at 70 percent...you're pretty much in.

The best calculator i've found is the applicant profile found on the lsac site...it's kind of hidden but check schools and call them  up and go to the pdf button at the bottom...you'll see how every applicant did...i think it's last year's applicant pool but i don't know that for sure.

where do you go to check schools and call them up.  I'd like to check this out but really have no idea how to find it.

Click on the PDF law school description. It is on the bottom of the second page for most. Most of the T14 do not release this information, and lots of private schools release it in different ways.
