Lowest LSAT score you've heard of getting into _____ school?

Postby Roza P » Fri Dec 16, 2011 10:57 pm

Just curious as to what "success" stories you've heard of with kids with low LSAT scores getting accepted at accredited schools?

Personally I've heard of a 143 at Nova Southeastern, and a 147 at the University of Florida.

Any others?

i think it's quite unpredictable with URMs, sometimes admitted way below median

Yale publishes its LSAT range in addition to its 25/50/75, and I remember seeing someone in last year's class got in with a 157. (Anyone want to guess that person's softs? I'm placing my money on senator's son/daughter.)

The admissions profile link isn't working right now, but here's a cached page from '10 when the low LSAT was still an astounding 158.

Buddy of my brother got into Yale a while back with 3.7/158. He's a white male from the WASPiest family I've ever met. His father has been friends with one of the adcomms since high school. Wonder how he got in...

Several T-14 law schools have admitted students with LSAT scores in the 150s ( the lowest that I know is a 153 for a T-14 non-URM a year or two ago).

Any crazy stories/softs that you'd be willing to share?

Teach For America is about as extreme as it gets on a regular basis. Some have disadvantaged backgrounds. Others with work or life experiences.

Please tell me you're trolling. Otherwise I don't want to live in this world anymore.

I think NU admitted to admitting a 14X my year.

Many elite law schools specifically note that they are TFA partner schools. Several also reserve a few spots in each class for TFA alumni.

@emkay: If your TFA experience doesn't help your cycle, then you are not applying to enough T-14 law schools.

I think you are quite wrong. Certainly both H and Y reserve a certain number for spots for TFA corps, almost all T14s have special TFA scholarships. All the law school benefits was one of the huge reasons that I wanted to do TFA. As the poster above me said, if TFA isn't giving you a big boost then you aren't applying to the right schools.
