So? Take it and apply anyway. You never know. At least it's free.

Penn State isn't a super selective school... I don't know why people are surprised...

Are you mixing Penn State up with Penn, which is ranked considerably higher?

The median LSAT is higher than their scores (159) which I believe is where the surprise is coming from. Penn State is my school so I will not claim that I am not biased, but it is probably worth the application. I have had a very positive experience so far. I have a separate thread where I am taking questions if anyone has any. Good luck!

Please don't go to Penn State.

That GPA should only find a home at a T-14.

Retake.

The median LSAT is higher than their scores (161) which I believe is where the surprise is coming from.

161? Where did you get that number? I thought 161 is the 75%... and the Median is closer to 158-159.

Either way, Penn State certainly isn't a very selective school.

Whoops, typo there, sorry about that. The median is 159, with the 75th being 161. I will fix my previous post, good eye!
