Have to mention REginald Lewis also never took the LSAT and was admitted to HArvard Law. I believe he was the only person ever to do so.

Real People:
Bill Gates Sr. - U Washington Law (I believe he's a billionaire from his own money, or close to it since he invested in Starbucks and another upstart, Amazon maybe? In their early stages).

Jeffrey Brottman - U Washington Law (Costco co-founder)


Fake people:
Marshall Erickson (HIMYM) - Columbia Law (specializing in environmental law)
Sam Winchester (Supernatural) - never went, but got a 174 on his LSAT and went to Stanford UG so probably a t6 if he weren't busy chasing demons and saving the world (if Satan doesn't possess his body first).
Dr. Gillian Foster (Lie to me) - Georgetown (correct me if I'm wrong here).

Scott Rothstein -- Nova Southeastern. Disgraced and disbarred South Florida lawyer and businessman who bilked investors out of 1.2 billion dollars. Known for cheesy mafioso suits and producing fake judgments/court documents to help his sham. His entire 40 lawyer firm is now bankrupt, and the FBI is accusing him of using the firm solely to launder the 1 billion dollars. I have no idea how this didn't make national news.

Yes. The fact alone that Michelle Bachman is an attorney is mind boggling. Same goes for Ann KKK(c)oulter. The fact that Coulter got in to Michigan is frightening. Apparently many alums share this sentiment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DGMSOGdEB4

Where do you think Lionel Hutz went? And just for the hell of it, what was his LSAT?

I'm going with Barry in FL because of his 152 / 3.01 GPA.

(Cooley bashing is just too obvious)

Ted Bundy-University of Utah.....also he worked on the campaign to get Nixon elected. The next time a Republican puts down the Democratic Party for some eccentric member, remind them of Bundy, there really is nobody worse than him.

I looked him up to add him to this list, and was shocked to see he went to Vanderbilt.
