Acceptance rate?

Postby lsatwizkid » Thu Dec 08, 2011 11:00 am

I'm copy-pasting this from another thread. Will be thankful if anyone has info on this:

Most law schools only give out numbers on their entering class size. Where do I find info on their acceptance rate? Not on their website (not for many schools). Any other place you know of? I don't have numbers for-
U of Virginia
Georgetown
U Texas, Austin
U Washington, St. Louis
George Washington
U Minnesota
Boston U

Anyone? Thanks!

Go to the official LSAC guide website, search for the school, and calculate it yourself based on their numbers (divide total accepted/total applied).

Thanks snehpets and Ingoodfaith! Data about UVA is correct. As for LSAC's link you provided, it gives enrollment data. I'm looking for admitted data. Not all admitted students enroll. And I couldn't find how many actually get admitted for those schools.

EDIT: Ah I got it! It's RIGHT there :) Thanks guys, you're awesome!!

9.3% overall...so probably like 3-4% acceptance out of state for uva

This is very helpful! Do you have any idea if this information and data is updated for the class of 2014? Not sure if the medians are accurate or for the class of 2013 instead.

I'm pretty sure the data in the LSAC guide are for the class of 2013. If I recall correctly, the guide lists Harvard's acceptances at 833, while H's website for the class of 2014 has 842 acceptances. I'll assume that the lack of correspondence is attributable to 2013 /v/ 2014.

I'm not positive, but from comparing a couple of schools' data here with their website it looks like it hasn't been updated for 2014 yet.

Yeah I'm cross checking LSAC's data with school's websites, and looks like LSAC's hasn't been updated. But it gives an idea, cause there isn't that particular info on school websites.
