heh. 3.34 here. according to the lsac report, the average at my school is about a 3.5... tons of them had harder majors than me, too... but tons had easier ones as well. I'm just average =D
Your school's AVERAGE was 3.5?? Wow! My school was 3.24 GPA median. I was 82nd percentile with a 3.65 (will be 87th percentile with a 3.75 after an old F from 2007 becomes a LW....very long and strange story).
Yeah... there were under a thousand kids in my class, and it's a research institution... and EVERYONE starts as pre-med (there's no pre-med major though... so they're like... anthropology/bme/poli sci + all the calc and chem and stuff)... basically, they're all smart.
So, can I ask what the incoming ACT/SAT 25/50/75th percentiles were? I'm not questioning your intelligence personally, and your LSAT is high, but I guess as a liberal arts person, I'm always slightly suspicious of the "science=smart" . I've been derided by too many science majors who see my major (English) as the easy way out, so it has nothing to do with your school or you.
You want the ones from my year or from this year? I have no idea about both but will gladly look it up for you. I can tell you that of the people who took the LSAT, bigger chunks scored 80-84+ than in any of the lower distributions. Also, sorry - I wasn't right about the average GPA. That was the average for the LSAT takers... overall is probably slightly lower than that. But at 3.34 I know my ranking wasn't even worth remembering... though I'm pretty sure it was somewhere in the top 75%.
I should probably also add that we have a very well known conservatory attached to us... and we frequently get the rejects from there. They come to my school so they can still take classes there (and so it's easier to transfer)
