I think Northwestern and Minnesota have it close to perfect. They care about diversity (and diversity of interests, geography, and opinions). They care about grades, and take the higher LSAT allowing for people who screwed up. Most importantly they are one of the only schools that emphasis's interviews. I think the committee should make every effort to get to know the people they let in. People are just that people, which is obviously more than numbers. Oh and I think Emory does a good job of focusing on Essays. Writting is important in this profession. Along those lines...
Also I think if one can get a paper published in a prestigous law review or business journal then that should be given some serious weight. However I am biased becuase I am trying to do this.
