landing high paying job =/= good attorney
however, i do agree that a high LSAT will open more doors for you. i think that's what you're getting at. i don't think i'd describe it has predictive of being a good attorney though.
You're right. There is a big difference between financial success of an attorney and effectiveness.
I do think that the ability to do well on the LSAT does indicate a good level of intelligence and critical thinking skills.
That's why I think it makes up 25% of being a good lawyer.
Either way, GPA means way less than most people think.
