what are your "college means" for GPA and LSAT?

Postby coolymx » Fri Nov 05, 2010 4:22 pm

Hey, I've always wondered when people say grades are "inflated" at certain schools, whether it is actually the case or just a perception. And also I think it's just intersting to find out what the GPA and LSAT means are at different universities (according to the LSAC reports) to see who has the "best" students :P

I'll start. I'm from York University in Canada and our data is not very impressive....

College mean GPA: 3.11
College mean LSAT: 149 (somewhat miraculous considering 32% of LSAT takers from my school score lower than the 25th percentile....)

Where do you even get this data? I would like to know how my school stands.

University of California, Davis

Mean GPA: 3.13
Mean LSAT: 155

Would be fascinating to see how UCD compares to other UCs.

both avg GPA and LSAT were higher than I expected...


Wow 3.35 average GPA. That's pretty high. I'm guessing my uni to be around there also...seems like almost every private university inflates these days.

3.35 is not so bad. I thought it would actually be higher at private universities.

On second thought, 3.35 is not so high as I think only people with fairly good gpas would be applying to law school.

I was going to post mine, but I see someone already did! The GPA is higher than I expected too, but then I thought back to how every time I ever went into the library it was hard to find a place on M, A, or B level, and I realized that Hopkins students just spend way too much time studying.. hence the higher than expected GPA.

FYI I looked up what the avg GPA for all JHU undergraduates have been for the past few years, and they were around a 3.2, pretty close to what I would expect it to be.

Numbers from Pomona College for my '08 graduating class. I assume the GPA is higher then the true college mean.
