Can't be that bad... I remember looking over a Yale Law School class profile (I'm pretty sure it was last year's), and there was definitlely a Bob Jones student in the mix.

When you send a law school application/report to XYZ school through LSAC, you will see your undergrad school's average.

That's my point. Close-mindedness does not preclude intelligence.

Yeah, I know that guy. He got a 175 on the LSAT (And I am sure he had something close to a 4.0).

Very impressive that any school has a 166 average.

However, the question does come up:

Is it because Harvard kids are smarter or just rich kids who can afford tutors?

Probably in between.....

Also interesting: Touro's average is above the 75th percentile for its law school - I believe it's the only school on the list to have this.

my school was a dismal 148 :x . We are talking about the average of all students that take the LSAT, not law school admissions, correct?

Very curious to see my schools average since I am guessing that about 5 people MAX take it each time... I'm surprised they offer it on campus, except that we are the only school for a couple hundred miles... (Humboldt State (California State University)

Smarter. No one needs a tutor/course to prep for the LSAT. In most cases it probably doesn't even make a big difference from self prep.

You're kidding yourself if you don't think a higher % of kids from Harvard take classes, get private tutors, and study with the right materials, than kids from Local State U.

That makes them smarter even if you argue that they aren't more intelligent. I go to Local State U and it is full of idiots in all meanings of that word. It costs like $100 to get some prep books so it isn't like very many people are unable come up with the money.
