AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
Legacies-give me a friggin break
since you apparently know almost nothing about law school admissions, they are far more numbers oriented than college. athletic prowess doesn't cut it. legacy admissions are far far less likely (the founder of the STANFORD LAW REVIEW and on its board of governors didn't get in but he managed to make the law review at a fairy equal law school)
From the horses mouth:
"What are the range of LSAT scores and GPAs of last year's admitted applicants?
Admission decisions are based on the Admission Committee's experienced judgment applied to individual cases, and many factors are taken into account. Each application is given a thorough review, taking account of all available information. Because GPA and LSAT scores alone do not fully or adequately summarize information about individuals that is important to admission decisions, these "numbers" often prove poor predictors of admission decisions on individual applications. At no point on the GPA or LSAT scales are the chances of admission to Harvard Law School 0 or 100 percent. As reported to the ABA, the 75/25 percentile GPAs for the class entering in 2006 were 3.95/3.72 and the 75/25 percentile LSATs were 175/169."
Frequently Asked Questions
tell me how a Guy with a less than 3.2 got into a school that rejected hundreds of white guys with 3.7 or so GPAs from good schools. when the Harvard Dean of Admissions came to Yale she basically said if you aren't at least a 3.8 you had less than a 1-15 chance of getting in
