Schools that publish high & low GPA/LSAT (not just 75-25)

Postby trutherd » Sat Feb 27, 2010 12:46 am

Anyone know of a list of schools that publish their highest/lowest numbers in addition to 75/25/median? For instance, Yale accepted a 3.51 GPA and a 154 LSAT (!) for the class of 2011...

If this list doesn't yet exist, perhaps we can compile it here...

Hastings' ranges (LinkRemoved) are 2.58-4.08 and 148-179.

Just remember those numbers didn't come from the same person. lol. That 154 LSAT probably had a 4.0 to go with it. And the person was probably a black female, single mother, Columbia grad with a masters in finance and Wall Street managment experience.

The 3.51 probably had a 178 to go with it...some random white dude in his early/mid-40's who ran his own company for 20 years and was admitted to YLS right after UG but decided to wait.

Oh yeah, no doubt - didn't mean to imply I thought they were they same person :)

Yale was the only one I found and of course chances of admission as an outlier at YLS are miniscule.

The numbers could be more useful at other schools for splitters with great softs. (Of course with a grain of salt - seeing that a T14 took someone with a 2.2 GPA or a 152 LSAT means next to nothing if you have a 2.4/160)

exactly. for this very reason, i think it's pointless to know the min/max at these schools. imho.
