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%.

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.

Most definitely
