I don't think a 3.2 from Yale and a 3.2 from a "no name" are the same, but I think a 3.3 or 3.4 from the "no name" will defnitely be better.

As someone here previously stated, they care about their numbers and the way it will look in rankings. US news doesn't take the undergrad. institution into account.

Also, I am sure the reason why a lot of top UG schools are represented at top law schools has to with the fact that students from those schools have typically worked hard scored well on the SAT, and continued that in college and on the LSAT.

Basically, I think the undergrad. institution will be considered as a minor factor after Numbers, and extra curricular..

I took the accelerated class at Princeton Review. My first diagnostic was a 150, and i scored 166 on the real LSAT. I can't complain with a 16 pt. increase. On the other hand, after taking their course i didn't use most of the techniques they taught me. I think the course just motivated me to start studying at the right time.

I think if you need someone to tell you to study, a course is good, otherwise i don't think it helps.

I would guess it depends on how much you move up. If you move to a 164, i don't think its worth it, but if you are confident you can get a 168 or above, i think its worth it.

I am in a similar situation. I was getting about 169-172 on the practice tests, but would up with a 166. I missed 7 on that first section because of stress.
