GTech's average GPA is actually a bit on the high side for state schools. Most average somewhere around 2.9. Also, GTech is a technical school, so there is a good chance that the most intellectually talented students take the LSAT in lower numbers than at Brown.

We can do an equating process: 159 is 78th %-ile, 163 is 89th %-ile. Fitting both to a normal distribution assuming the SD = 10, that means that 66th %-ile at GT = 50th %-ile at Brown.

Now, let's assume the curve at GT has a median of 3.1 and an SD of 0.4*. That means the 66th %-ile GPA is 3.26, which is what Brown's median GPA should be to factor out the LSAT difference and equate the GPAs. Which means that if you use average LSAT to do the equating, Brown is pretty severely grade-inflated.

*) A school-wide average is a bit misleading for GT - the average ranges from probably about 2.9 - 3.2 between the various majors. In the AE department, 3.2-3.3 is roughly top 10%.
