It seems like their admission probability is much inflated than I expected..

I really liked how this aggregated all the data..and also it claims "thanks to LSAC for the data"... does anyone knows if the data is fed from LSAC?

I think chiashu's data is from 2003. And really, you should only use admissions calculators to give you an idea of what your safeties are, what your reaches are, etc. There's far too many variables for LSAT and GPA alone to give you a reasonable estimate of your "chances".

thats true..
however, I think LSN numbers are way too inflated..
or LSAT scores have recently gone off the roof?
I checked the profile of my school's past applicants (for year 2004), and the average LSAT for Harvard/Stanford was around 168~170..

I'm kind of ass about this cuz my LSAT score is lingering around 168~170, and I'm not sure if I should take it in june..
