Pretty good distribution, I guess, especially since the law school doesn't require the LSATs

Mean of 159


UMich and Georgetown don't require their undergrads applying for accelerated admission to take the LSAT either.

Wow and I thought mine was bad.

I wish they had a statistic for the people who studied really hard for the LSAT, instead of bunching everyone together. They could have a scantron question to the likes of "How many hours a week would you say oyu spent studying for the LSAT?"

Would be interesting to intersect the study-time statistics with the score distributions.

People who got 177+ with less than 3 hours a week, or people under 150 with over 35 hours a week

FWIW, my undergrad has a mean LSAT of 153. I just got back from a law school fair being held in the student center in which roughly 80 schools were represented. The only T20 in attendance was WUSTL (who had to make all of a 10 minute drive to show up). The overwhelming majority of booths belonged to TTTs. I'm ready to graduate.

Percentage Distribution of LSAT

12 - 95 & up
12 - 90- 94
10 - 85- 89
10 - 80- 84
8 - 75- 79
8 - 70- 74
6 - 65- 69
7 - 60- 64
6 - 55- 59
3 - 50- 54
4 - 45- 49
4 - 40- 44
2 - 35- 39
3 - 30- 34
2 - 25- 29
2 - 20- 24
2 - 0- 19


Does the GPA distribution refer to the whole school's gpa distribution or only those taking the LSAT?

My school's distribution. I'm glad I go to a school with smarter people, I guess?

The average law school applicant's GPA from my school is 3.5. Heavy grade inflation, much?


A 3.5 isn't much inflation with those LSATS

Only those who signed up for CAS in the last three years.

Where are you guys getting this info? Do you have to have taken the LSAT already and then it comes on one of those forms?

It's from the academic summary report. It'll show up when your transcript is processed.

HYP and similar UGs have ~165 medians (92nd percentile).

I believe Harvard is 166, Princeton is 164 & Northwestern is at 162.

At first I went to a huge state school that is ranked very low, I then transferred to a private liberal arts school that is ranked very high. When comparing the spreads from those two separate schools I was shocked to find that the low ranked state school had a more impressive spread of scorers. I went into debt for nothing.... :(

Mine is almost as bad. In the 0-19 column mine is 35.

I don't have yours beat, but mine was surprising:

Percentage Distribution of LSAT
95 & up 2
90- 94 3
85- 89 4
80- 84 3
75- 79 4
70- 74 5
65- 69 4
60- 64 6
55- 59 5
50- 54 4
45- 49 5
40- 44 6
35- 39 5
30- 34 5
25- 29 7
20- 24 7
0- 19 24

Mean: 149

I certainly don't see myself as 170 material, but 149 seems attainable even after a three day bender. What the hell?

I would tend to think my school has more UG to law school applicants though, because of tuition rates and language within the province

Yea...well I graduated a few years ago

also saw a 3.35 average GPA---and most of those kids were probably Arts faculty kids...pretty sad---though I assume the 2.7 Philosophy average GPA might have brought it down

My school:

1 - 95 & up
3 - 90- 94
4 - 85- 89
5 - 80- 84
4 - 75- 79
3 - 70- 74
4 - 65- 69
5 - 60- 64
5 - 55- 59
4 - 50- 54
7 - 45- 49
7 - 40- 44
5 - 35- 39
7 - 30- 34
6 - 25- 29
9 - 20- 24
22 - 0- 19

Mean of 148. Not good, but better than I expected considering the number of mouth-breathers I heard at the October test saying they felt "safe" because they got low 150s on the June test. I felt like I was the only person there expecting a 165+. Have fun at Cooley, boys.
