This is discouraging. I have a 3.74 and 166. I'm right below the median for both numbers. Is it really that schools actually prefer splitters to someone like me who is just average in both categories?

Another theory for the median increase - More and more people interested in the IP law apply for GWU, and the admissions became more competitive, no? Do you think there is a good chance that the median will decrease for next year?
