This is only tangentially related, but since my senior year of college I wondered if LSAC shouldn't add an additional term to the model they use to calculate admissions index: an interaction term between undergraduate GPA and average LSAT score at the student's undergraduate institution. (Currently, I believe LSAC regresses 1L GPA on LSAT and undergraduate GPA, then uses the estimates for that model to come up with the next year's admission indexes.) It seems to me this would better capture the student's undergraduate GPA in the context of his or her school--the average LSAT score for the school already appears on the LSAC form anyway, so no additional data would be need to be collected.
