Interesting Idea
How to determine how many applicants have better scores than you.

88,100 applicants

4450 have scores over 167

Using Law School Numbers as a reference roughly 65% of applicants in that range have a 3.5 or above.

So roughly 2,893 people have scores over a 167 and a 3.5.

Assuming an average class size of 250 in the top 14.

So assuming all of those people get in ahead of you, what school will you end up at according to U.S. News.?

Either Duke or Cornell.

Or to be more conservative 85% have over a 3.0

which work out to be 3,700

or roughly UCLA
