Yale Law is arguably the most prestigious professional program on the planet and one whose alumni have disproportionate control over the American justice system and the rarefied world of legal academia.
It turns out that its admission process is about as prestige-obsessed as a selective process which is supposed to be primarily based on objective credentials can get. September edited September Post edited by jhaverford on September September HLS operates a more meritocratic and egalitarian business What's more, YLS practices a unique admissions process, making admission to YLS a different accomplishment from admission to every other law school.
Pea replies 9 threads Senior Member. I don't find this list too surprising. The only things that I noticed was that Swarthmore, Wesleyan and Pomona did better than I would have guessed, given their size. SMCguy replies 47 threads Senior Member. Williams sent 4. I'm not sure that is statistically different from the 6 sent by Pomona or the 7 sent by Wesleyan or Amherst. I think RML is right, percentage of applicants accepted out of number of applicants who applied from a school would be more meaningful than raw numbers.
IvyPBear replies 11 threads Member. Shouldn't you be adjusting the schools by the number of their applicants? However, we can adjust schools by the total number of law school applicants form each school.
Students at HYPS etc. This is not surprising, since they were admitted to college with some of the highest average SAT scores. LSAT scores count for a lot in law school admissions. Top public schools such as Berkeley does really well compared to Cornell. Alexandre replies threads Senior Member. IvyPBear, I would take your analysis a step further and break it down according to the percentage accepted from each university. Pizzagirl replies threads Senior Member.
Yale; 89; ; 0. Sam Lee replies threads Senior Member. I'm just trying to make it more precise by adjusting for the of LS applicants than just adjusting for the size of the UGs. If you have the time to write such a long response pointing out a weakness that I think most people realize simply by looking at what I wrote, why don't you go find specific data on the number of applicants to YLS from each UG.
Sam Lee, It's not a faulty analysis. It's imprecise, but I would like to see Pizzagirl digging up specific data on the number of applicants to YLS from each UG and doing a more precise analysis.
I'd guess the level of interest in YLS is not all that different across peer schools. So yes, "imprecise" is probably a more precise and fair characterization than "faulty and flawed".
Not very surprising. One aspect of the data leapt out at me.Nichea company that researches and compiles information on schools, just released its rankings of the best private high schools in the country, specifically highlighting the best schools that prepare students for elite colleges.

Horace Mann School.Probably Not What You Think. I thought it ruined my mental health. I thought my GPA would be better if I went somewhere else. I learned that yes, I did sacrifice a lot. But it was entirely worth it. Every obstacle along the way built character. During my first week of school, I started working on a the engine of a Formula Hybrid race car, play in a poker tournament, went whitewater kayaking, starting going to the rock climbing gym, and went stupid at a dance party.
It is also good for independent people as it really is a place where you have to learn to thrive. Make sure to take some good mental health practices as people tend to over-work themselves. If you work hard, you play hard, but both can be exhausting so also take time for yourself. Great diversity of students where you can meet people from all over the world.
Safety precautions they take at the school make me feel protected.

Dorm life is amazing, where you feel like family with the students on your floor. All in all it is a wonderful school to be a part of and I find it an honor to be there! Harvard makes sure that you can afford to go if they accept you. At Yale, you get a suite, which is more like an apartment. Suites are shared between multiple people, and include a common room, bathroom, and bedrooms.
I could not ask for anything better. The suites are large, clean, and renovated regularly. Think again. Former Marketing and Business Analyst at Niche.

Of the U. There's no doubt guidance counselors at private schools have more time and resources to better guide students to college. But counselors say the Ivy League draws heavily from top-notch private high schools because most of their students had to beat out their peers academically to gain admission at that level. More than half of Yale's undergrads are public-school alumni, said Yale spokesman Tom Clancy. Harvard's online guide says two-thirds of its undergraduates are from public high schools.
And Princeton spokeswoman Marilyn Marks said "a majority" of that school's new admits last year were public-school students. And, Marks noted, the class valedictorian was home-schooled. Still, those parents dead-set on getting their kid into Harvard, Yale or Princeton may want to consider moving to the Eastern seaboard.
New York and Massachusetts are home to the top 10 schools on the list, which send between 16 and 21 percent of their students to one of the three colleges. Of the top 30 schools, only one is not in an eastern state it's in California. The Worth magazine survey also ranked the top 50 U. Twenty of those schools are in New York, and 13 are in Massachusetts. See Top and Top 50 public lists. Phillips Academy and Phillips Exeter Academy had and graduates, or There are options for parents whose kids are not likely to go to one of the top-ranked schools.
Simply having dinner-time conversations can help spark the intellectual curiosity that leads to the sharp high-school performance colleges seek, Reider said. Once kids are in high school, encouraging them to take honors courses, or even just an extra class, can mean better-looking transcripts, he said.
Some high schools aren't demanding: Make it more demanding. Read an extra book, do an extra project. That's what private schools do," Reider said.

December You really need evidence to back up your claim. Harvard faculty members are as likely to live in Brookline, Belmont, Newton, and surprise, Cambridge as in Lexington.
As far as I know, families who are keen on college matriculation and wouldn't mind high property tax tend to move to the school district from neighboring towns. Valdog replies 6 threads Junior Member. Wow, Milliee. Such sweeping generalizations! Do you really believe there are no middle-class or working-class, hard-working, unconnected kids at those private schools who were admitted to Harvard?
That it's ALL all about money and connections? And that it's only public school kids who "actually" graduate with honors and excel on their own merit?
Sorry but that theory doesn't hold true for essentially every kid I know admitted to Harvard and its peer schools in recent years. Milieee, I agree your argument is difficult to defend, particularly since Lexington is a modest Boston suburb compared to Weston or Newton for example. No reason faculty would be more concentrated in Lexington, which is a hike outside town in terrible traffic.Tucker Investigates: How did Chris Cuomo get into Yale?
In addition, the image of wealthy privilege at the boarding schools has radically changed in the last 30 years. Over half the students are minorities, and the majority of students receive very substantial financial aid.
Legacy plays a very small role these days. Harvard is actively recruiting minorities and students from underprivileged backgrounds. The prep schools may be a great choice for those students, giving a full ride to any admitted student with family income under 75K. Agree with Valdog. Many on significant FA. Periwinkle replies threads Senior Member. Lexington would certainly have Harvard faculty members, but how would you explain Belmont?
These towns are similar in many ways but one is a feeder school and the other is not. Benley replies threads Senior Member. Among the other 7, I know at least were recruited athletes, 1 URM and 1 Harvard faculty kid it's possible that one individual wears multiple hats.
Are there legacy or faculty kids among those 11? You bet, but does it matter as much as it made sound like?
Because most of those top students ended up in top colleges - Harvard or otherwise - anyway regardless their "hook status". Is everyone satisfied with their college outcome?
