Princeton Review Law School Data

Postby mrtoren » Thu May 12, 2011 12:18 pm

I've looked for information about this, but I came up dry. Does anyone know how recent the Princeton Review's law school data is? It says 2011 on the website, but the U.S. News and World Report rankings are for 2012. So are Princeton Review's a year old? They also provide an "average" LSAT score for schools. In many instances it appears to be identical to the medians at the respective schools. But since they don't state it to be a median, is that figure essentially worthless? A couple of really high or low LSAT scores could skew the average. For instance, the LSAT average at Marquette is listed as a 157; this is also their current median. Michigan State's average LSAT, however, is listed as 155 when their website says the median is a 157.

Is there a thread anywhere that lists the actual median LSAT scores for all T100 schools? I know I saw the 2012 Rankings with 25-75 LSAT scores, but no medians. If it doesn't exist, could someone will full access to USNWR possibly compile one?

If you read the TLS profiles, a lot of them report medians in the first paragraph where it discusses admissions selectivity.

Many of those articles seem pretty dated; I don't think they're revised on a yearly basis. For instance, the tuition costs they list are often several thousand dollars cheaper..which would have been accurate a few years ago. For the schools that do list a median LSAT/GPA on their website, they sometimes no longer match what the TLS profile says.

I would like to have the medians compiled for future reference, but if that's not feasible right now, does anyone know Catholic U's LSAT median? Princeton Review says the average is a 158. I want to verify that that is the median as well.

I think the profiles are from 2008.

Anyone else find it entertaining that Catholic of all places found a way to secure the "law.edu" domain name? Not cua.law.edu, but just law.edu.

Must have registered their domain name early. Found the medians: http://www.law.edu/res/docs/about/AdmProfile.pdf. Its 159/3.32. From the looks of Law School Numbers' applicants, my 158/3.28 will probably get me waitlisted or rejected. Kind of bizarre.
