Schools in NYC, due to sheer number of applicants.

San Diego is by far the biggest LSAT whore...161/3.2 gets the nod over 159/4.0 every single time.  Can you tell I'm bitter?

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

Glad someone else said it, so that I didn't have to use my obvious bias to state it.

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.

Yeah, GW was pretty blatant this year... a lot of those 165s are going to become WL/Accept though.

From what I've read:

Harvard, Georgetown and NYU rely heavily on numbers.


while:

Boalt, Yale and Stanford look past them a little more (at least past the LSAT - GPA seems to be as or more important).

'Numbers slut'?!?  No need to get all judgmental just because a school wants to cuddle up with a hot 3.95 or have a torrid three-year fling with a chiseled 176...

Will a 161/3.07 get me in? I'm sorry that you're bitter but other schools will take GPA over LSAT. Santa Clara and USF are just two examples. I was actually waitlisted at USF and I assume that this was due to either yield protection or a preference for GPA. Seriously though, will my numbers get me in?  Can anybody answer this for me?  ???

NYU or Georgetown.

NYU seems to have accepted quite a few of us who aren't all numbers.  So I'll disagree with that one, despite risking NYU Trollishness.

Actually, I got the impression that Columbia, at least this year, was way more of a numbers whore.  Harvard is pretty bad too.

NYU

Correct.

Columbia can't be that much of a numbers whore based on the number of deferrals they've sent out - NYU admitted all of those people with higher than 170/3.7.
