I have just recently finished applying to UG institutions and believe that the different schools' mean LSAT's could be a useful way for me to determine where I ultimately matriculate. Some of the schools I applied to have already been listed but if anybody could post the mean LSAT's for the following UG schools, I'd really appreciate it:
University of Pennsylvania
Rice
Northwestern
Cornell
Vanderbilt
Carnegie Mellon
Case Western Reserve
University of Miami

"Not really.."
It used to say 155, which apparently was too low, since it's actually 157.

University of Pennsylvania is 163, as of the 2004-5 cycle (on our career services website).

Sounds about right - while I know a few people with 175+, I also know some in the 150's who barely studied and took it on a whim.

I've noticed that this seems to be true of their law school as well. Over the past 10 years, BYU has had several Supreme Court clerks and graduates in academic, which is almost unheard of for a school with BYU's ranking. I don't have any hard data, but I would speculate that this is the result of Mormon students who picked BYU over higher-ranked schools. Anecdotally, I have a friend who got into law school at Duke but turned them down in order to attend BYU.)
Well, these kids aren't clerking for Stevens, if you know what I mean.

BYU is a pretty reliable place to get social conservatives who aren't total dummies, so certain Justices will be quite content to take the top of the class from there to clerk.

Agreed on BYU undergrad. A lot of Mormon kids wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Whenever I tell people at church that I won't go to BYU because I'm looking for a better school, they sort of look at me cross-eyed. Personally, even as a Mormon, I just can't go to a school that has the sort of limitations that BYU imposes upon students and faculty, since I believe these limitations essentially negate the possibility for critical thinking. Like I always tell people at church: best trade school in the world, but a university it is not :P

Absolutely right - there are kids who turn down much higher ranked schools for BYU law as well. These kids are obviously likely to do well there, which would put the very best of them in a decent position to score a clerkship with a conservative justice (by decent, I mean it's still a longshot, but as good a chance as you can expect at such an honor). Your Duke example is, I'm sure, just one of many, which is why their numbers are a little better than their rankings peers. If the school were willing to bump tuition a bit and do some additional investing in the law school, I'm sure they could make a significant rankings move. I'm equally sure that they're not too interested in that, as they fill a niche with which I expect they're quite content.

I also sent you a PM.

Communicate now with those who not only know what a legal education is, but can offer you worthy advice and commentary as you complete the three most educational, yet challenging years of your law related post graduate life.

You have UCLA there twice, and the 158 appears to be the more recent one.
