LSAT scores by State

Postby KingMenes » Thu May 26, 2011 9:44 pm

I couldn't find this topic in the archived threads; but I'm curious to know if there is any current data available ranking the Highest to lowest LSAT scores by state?

Whoa - for the most recent data, the mean score for the Southeast is 6 points lower than New England. I would have imagined some regional variation, but 6 points is a lot.

Seriously? Southern educational systems are not known for their excellence.

Clearly if you move to the Northeast from the Southeast you will score higher on the LSAT

The scariest thing about the Southeast's score being that low is that it's actually gone down pretty consistently since 2001, and even that information is kinda out of date. I'm afraid of how low it is now.

I'd like to see the variation between the Southeastern states. I'd venture to say that VA would probably be the highest.

Now that I think about it, I'm sure the low score for the southeast is due to such a high minority population in that region. If you were to factor for the boost URMs receive, I imagine the southeast would be doing rather well.

Also this region is the poorest region in the US, and therefore educational opportunities are not a good as others.

Today I learned the June LSAT has the lowest number of students taking it. That seems weird, considering Feb.

You gotta remember that the vast majority of people don't have TLS wisdom to help them pick. Feb seems like a great date if you don't know any better :-)
