I was so confused on this topic until this morning. Most schools have a number that they use to compare everyone. They compute this number with the equation: (LSAT score x LSAT constant) + (GPA x GPA constant) + Constant = IndexFor simplicity: (L x A) + (G x B) + C = INow, L and G are your own numbers. A, B, and C can be found on the LSDAS site. Just click on "Account Status/Transcripts" and click the link "Admission Index". So if school X has A = 1 and B = 2 and C = 3, then their maximum index is: (180 x 1) + (4 x 2) + 3 = 191. You can plug your L and G in to see how you stack up.It's actually simpler than it looks.
(btw, im in nj too ^_^)
