Example: Applicant #1
uGPA: 3.5
LSAT: 174
Coming directly from undergrad, no work experience

Applicant #2
uGPA: 2.7
LSAT: 180
LSAT2: 179
LSAT3: 180
2 years out of undergrad, law office experience

Experimental set up fail

Given that the LSAT is valued for predicting success.

By who? LSAT score is a shit predictor of law school grades, and a shit predictor of bar passage. Granted, it's one of the better predictors anyone has yet come up with, but it's still shit.
