Depends on what school you're talking about and the other candidate's LSAT.
Pending: Whittier (PT + FT)

lets say if we apply to the same schools , what higher score do i need on LSAT to keep my chances equal to the someone with 4.1 GPA.
can the chances for both get equal if i score 150 (with 3.66 GPA)  and somone else (with 4.1 GPA) score 147 on LSAT.

i think the general consensus is that 1 lsat point is equivalent to .1 gpa.  but that of course varies depending on the school, how high the lsat scores are, and other factors. 

now i have a question for you:  why is this on "LSAT horror stories"?

so are you saying i need to get 5 points more than the other person to keep my chances equal for any law school.

about your question: I dont know why is it on LSAT horror stories..
