%tile rank on transcript report of lsdas
« on: September 04, 2004, 11:44:31 PM »
does anyone know how they figure this number out?  is it out of the people who have already submitted their transcripts? or is it the whole school? and if its just the people who have submitted, will it change once more people send theirs in??

thanks!!

I believe it is taken from the 3 previous years, from all the people who have had transcripts processed by LSAC or have taken the LSAT in that time.  There is more information in the "Academic Summary Report Key" on your LSAC account.

Good question.  I thought it was for the people who submitted transcripts for a certain period around the time you graduated from X school.

Ah, I misspoke.  It is for the "three most recent years of your attendance."  Since I'm still in school, that would be the three previous years.  For people who have been out, it would be their last three years.

edit: Not necessarily people who attended at that time, just people who had their transcripts processed or took the LSAT during that time.

What is Harvard's GPA/LSAT?  I wouldn't sweat it too much; something tells me Harvard's reputation might help out a tad.  At least for the ad comms who have heard of the school before.
