Yes, the school median should be listed in your LSAC report.


LSAC report? Do you get that when you start applying or when you register with LSAC?


LSAT report, sorry. it comes with your LSAT score.


Ok, for some reason I'm not seeing this. I click on "LSAT status" but I can't find it.

Ok, I am a liar. It is in your academic summary report on LSAC. Should be right next to your transcript on the website.

I think median grades would be much more accurate. It seems (at least at my school), that a handful of 120's offset the 25% who were above the 95 percentile.

LSAT mean for WUSTL according to my report (07-08 year) is 161, not 158.

Feel free to continue to make fun of it for being a school for Ivy rejects.

Yea, that's the point of this thread is that you'll report your school's median. You should be able to find it on your LSDAS report.

To all those people shocked at WUSTL, please remember: this is only the mean for this particular LSAT and could be an outlier.

I'm not finding it either, in fact I can't even find my LSDAS report. Is there something I need to do before this happens? I have paid for the CAS.

It should be on your academic summary report. You need to submit and have processed all of your transcripts.

Okay, that's what I thought, I have not yet sent in my transcripts. Wow - you all have? Am I behind on this? I'm taking summer classes and wanted to have my transcript reflect that.

What exactly is the point of adcoms looking at your UG's median LSAT? If it's a high median then...you're expected to do better? Or just that you went to a good school?

Haha don't worry about it, I'm in the exact same position as you. I don't have all of my summer grades in until mid-August, so I'm just waiting to send in my transcript until then.

Whew! Good to know! I don't want to let myself get behind here. Today I'm working on my first draft PS and next week I'm going to provide my recommenders with a folder of info (resume, PS (or atleast what I have thus far) resume, transcript, etc.) I hope I'm on schedule.

Looks like you and I are schedule twins. I'm talking to my LOR writers this week and working on my PS too (now that the LSAT is over and done with I realized all the other things I need to do for applications).

It allows the adcoms to give your GPA a perspective. If your school's average was a 140 and your GPA was 4.0, it might not be as impressive as a 4.0 at a school with a median of 150.

Georgia Tech 158
Emory 159


Emory is overrated too.

Also, definitive proof that Tech students are smarter than UGA students.


I don't think thats definitive proof. Most UGA students enjoy their 4 years in Athens while everyone I know who went to GT hated their lives. I got a 171 attending UGA. I think quality education mixed with high quality of life is the way to go. Depends on your major and goals on where you should end up. LSAT isn't the be all end all of intelligence.

considering that students choose to take the LSAT on the their own accord, and assuming every student wants to do as well as possible, seeing how these numbers line up with UG rankings makes them (the rankings) seem a little more legitimate. Clearly the higher ranked schools are, on average, turning out a higher number of high-performing students, and vice versa.

Obviously, we're just going by the kind of intelligence that is measured by the LSAT, but that is something at least, especially if we assume that a decent chunk of those who take the LSAT don't end up going to law school anyway.
