To be clear, they would most likely use the LCM on the LSAC Report for a school they have very little experience with or knowledge of, to gain some intelligence on that school. When I first started admissions I had never heard of Transylvania University in Lexington KY and the schools median LSAT was noteworthy such that we started recruiting there.

In the big picture of admissions, I think everyone is correct that this is a pretty minor statistic. At schools where there are faculty admissions committees, though, this might come into play a bit more.


Ah thanks for clearing that up!

I imagine I was a bit unclear in my thread but I don't even want to read through my posts to find the exact wording :)

I can't believe Harvard is only a 166. Enjoy Fordham Law, Harvard kids. #stillbitter

ETA: I see mine on the spreadsheet already.

Not too bad to have 1/5 of people top 5% and 1/2 people top 15%.


You just reported the median.

Holy hell! I knew I went to a (insert expletive + insulting adjective) school, but DAMN! 145 & 3.14? That blows dead goats.
