Schools that average LSAT Scores

Postby logicman86 » Thu Mar 11, 2010 12:58 pm

Hey, I don't have too many points to go up on the exam. But because of my GPA (it was a school that had no A+'s and A- constituted only a 3.7 and many teachers didn't give A's), I need top 25 percentile or higher on the LSAT to get into a top-10 or about the same to get a big ride to a USC, Texas or Florida.

Because I don't have too many points to improve my score, I was wondering if anybody can point me to a website that lists what schools average. As I'd likely only improve about 4-5 points, it wouldn't be so worth it for me to go through all that again for only a point or two.

That's an OK list, but many more schools now take the higher score than was the case in 2006. Also, schools that say they average (NYU, Georgetown) don't do it very consistently.

If you think you can improve a few LSAT points or more, do it. It's going to help you immensely.

This is a more current post with more detailed info. Still, if you improve your score by 5 points or more, it seems like schools will give you the benefit of the doubt and take the higher score.

Not just a post, also as an "official" article on TLS:

I wonder why so many schools did not respond to the very practical question. Is there something in their admission procedure that they want to conceal?
