Wow, that's... interesting. For your sake, I hope you scored in your UG's 95%.

DrackedaryMaster said he had a big gigantic 38 in that box at far right. You might want to talk to him.


My school's distribution was pretty even across most of the boxes, with a slight uptick in the above-90 range. I thought, thinking my school was a Good School, that it might be more exaggerated than that, but I talked with some people at my testing center and my eyes were opened.

if you go to the lsac.org website. Than from home go to transcripts. Than Academic Summary Report.

Show you the info about your degree granting school.

Adcomms pretty much only use that information to judge your GPA not your LSAT. I had 24 of my peers score in the top 95% with a mean LSAT of 163

I wonder what they do for people like me that have too small of a sample where LSAC does not release anything besides what you see above about my school. No GPA mean or distribution and no LSAT mean.

Does your undergrad have some sort of pre-law program that guarantees admission to its law school (assuming it has a law school)? I ask because my school has such a program that assures admission (contingent upon meeting certain GPA requirements) regardless of LSAT score. For many pre-law applicants, then, the LSAT becomes a formality and the overall score distribution suffers.

I don't know how to find that, but over half of the students - at my graduating institution - were lower than the 24th percentile :shock:

Yea, I scored a 155 on my diagnostic and was in the 160's within days.

In all honesty, with my college experience, I feel like I should write a diversity statement.

A DS because your UG is uberFAIL on the LSAT?

I saw that my school has a LSAT College Mean of 157, and for some brilliant reason, I thought they were posting my LSAT score early, and I nearly started crying. Wow. Fail on my part.

Not on that basis alone, but looking at the distribution reminds me of the idea.

I was invited to a prospectives weekend at a top 10 school for a Psychology PhD program. Students were from Cornell, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, MIT, etc.; no one was even from a school that was outside of the top 20. There were 10 of us and only 8 students were going to be offered admission. I was accepted before the weekend was out. I, actually, didn't even end up accepting their offer.

Needless to say, I am quite the rarity in my own program; where some students have Master's from LSOE and Columbia and others went to WUSTL and Northwestern, I went straight from my undergrad at a t500 school.

I think it's safe to say that, for the t6 school I'm applying to, I add diversity.

Would the OP have their GPA looked at unfavorably if all of those applicants with low LSAT scores still managed to be heavily represented at the high end of the GPA spectrum?


Ex. 32% of applicants scored in the 0-19 percentile but only 10% of the applicants at his school had GPAs below a 3.0.


Just an example but couldn't that negatively impact how his/her GPA is viewed?

I feel like I just fell for your ploy to tell everyone how awesome you are. No thanks are needed for the set up.
