Holy crap, Miami's acceptance rate is 49.7%!!! I wonder if that's a typo...

I was wondering about that too.  It says they took in about 2300 of 4600.  That seems insane.

wow...that must be the highest of any T2 school.  i would think the numbers would be similar this year too.  could mean a further drop in the rankings next year.   i mean, if we assume that maybe 10% of future law students are registered at LSN--230 have said they were accepted at Miami so that would mean 2300 were accepted.  i would think the percentage of law students registered at LSN is a bit higher though.  maybe 15-17%.
Mr. Braddock: Would you mind telling me then what those four years of college were for? What was the point of all that hard work?
Ben Braddock: You got me.

But which 15-17%? I think LSN has a marked selection bias towards the top schools, and especially toward the tippy top. LSN probably captures a higher proportion of the T14-bound than it does everyone else.
This sig kills fascists.

Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.

Most definitely
