2015-2016 Admissions Spreadsheets

Postby benwyatt » Fri Sep 11, 2015 3:58 pm

Two cycles ago, lawschool22 created these incredible spreadsheets. Last cycle, Xylocarp updated them and I've taken it upon myself to do it this cycle. They're a great way for us to get some helpful information and analysis about our fellow TLS applicants and get a sense for where we fall within the pack! These spreadsheets are only useful if we keep them updated with accurate information and the more information we have, the better!

If you choose to remain anonymous, be sure to say "Anonymous" in the username column, otherwise some of the formulas break down

OPs of T14 admissions threads, I'd suggest adding these to the post so they're easy to reference!

Let me know if you notice any issues with the spreadsheets so I can fix them as needed.

Please don’t edit anything other than your own line of info, including sorting the data or filtering it in any way! If you want to do those things, go to file → make a copy, and then do whatever you want to your copied version.

Also, see this previous discussion regarding the relative strength of softs:

Below Average would likely be non-URM K-JD with little work exp. or community involvement, but what takes someone from average to above average, if they aren't URM and don't have military experience?

This was discussed a lot in last year's spreadsheets thread, and the general consensus was that it's very, very difficult to define.

Here's one list that was floating around:

iamgeorgebush wrote:"Highly Unique" : Rhodes, founder of a nonprofit/startup, chef at a Michelin starred restaurant, NFL player, published novelist, etc.
"Above Average" : Marshall/Gates/Fulbright/Truman, MBB Consulting/bulge bracket Investment Banking, production assistant at CNN, paralegal at the ACLU, software engineer at a venture-funded startup, officer of a state or national student organization, etc.
"Average" : student government, student newspaper, neighborhood outreach, fund raising, officer at a student club or two, etc. (some combination of at least three of these)
"Below Average" : one or two of "average"
"Weak" : few to no ECs/internships

But obviously it's not comprehensive and there was a lot of disagreement about it, so take that with a grain of salt.

Saw this because you quoted me, so I stickied, but in general you should PM a mod or ask in the mod Q&A thread if you want a mod to notice and sticky something for you. Wooooo spreadsheets

I noticed that Peace Corps and Teach For America aren't listed as examples for the softs. Would those be considered "above average?" Just curious

Probably not


I don't think people tend to take TFA very seriously, though I personally think Peace Corps would be above average.
