Weird list... Frege or Aristotle (assuming the test would be given in their native languages) are my guesses from this list. Presumably people will just vote for their "favorite philosophers", but the anal[ytic] philosophers would probably dominate most easily.

How about Wittgenstein's brother, Paul, the one-armed pianist?

You'd say Frege > Wittgenstein?

All things being equal in terms of language, Wittgenstein would shame these fools.

I shouldn't have even put Rorty or Nietzsche for that matter, both of which would argue that the merit and results of the exam are relative to the audience.

Nietzsche would ridicule the herd mentality of the law school applicant.

I think Kant's abnormally large head would win the day.

ETA: But Cicero would have gotten a 180.

I suspect they'd all have the mental capability to do very well.

Without any prep, I'd say Ludwig.

I bet Heidegger would do pretty well. By writing Being and Time he has also displayed the necessary degree of self-loathing that many law students have...

I would have put money that Tupac would hit 170s easily.
