Which school is the biggest numbers slut?
« on: April 10, 2007, 06:30:12 PM »
All schools claim to look beyond the numbers, but not all schools look beyond the numbers.

I talked to a Yale admissions officer at a YLS prospective talk over the weekend and he said Yale accepts more kids with less than a 171, more kids with less than a 169, and more kids with less than a 165 than Harvard does (depsite Harvard's class being nearly 4 times as large).


Going by that and a quick look at numbers and lawschoolnumbers, my nomination is Harvard.

Harvard is not as much of an LSAT whore as I had hoped.

I assume you had a bad GPA?


It seems like they're completely mechanical with their decisions.


LSAT, GPA with UG institution counting for 2-3 lsat points if HYPS or 1-2 points if other ivy league school or Duke seems like it explains every single decision.

Georgetown has a somewhat well-deserved reputation for being kind of a numbers whore.

This is off topic, but just curious.  Flyaway, why did you end up picking Michigan over Duke and UVA?  Just curious

And for this board, have heard Northwestern has a rep the LSAT number.
UVA, 2010

It's the place.

No way.  There are sup 3.0's and sub 170's in at NYU.  They'll dip way under their 25th percentile for a good candidate (in fact, there's one on this board).

Obviously their number sluttiness is on a much different (read:lower) level, but take a look at GW's LSN break-down, it is almost one hundred percent uniform. 164 & 165 waitlist, below rejection, above acceptence. There are some 163s and 166s in their waitlist category, but not that many.
