LSAT and UGPA
« on: August 18, 2003, 01:00:06 PM »
So let's keep those munbers rolling:
How well did you do on the LSAT recent or not.

Also to compare what was your undergraduate GPA (if applicable):

Here's mine
3.79 (current) 3.92+ (fingers crossed @ graduation) UGPA
159 LSAT (practice tests) 170+ (fingers crossed)

AS you can see I am early in the game I am currently a sophomore/junior speeding my way through my undergrad to get to law school.  I just was curious as to all of you girls/guys numbers Thanks a bunch,  ;D

Does it matter what school one goes to as an undergrad?

I'll just say that the GPA is the lesser part of my application.

As for undergrad, it has some meaning, but I don't know how much. Here's an article with a little information: http://www.nylawyer.com/news/04/08/081204h.html

It does.

But it doesn't make that much of a difference if you have a kick ass LSAT score.

3.80 in Financial Economics and a 167 on my most recent practice test

In reality, I should be a 4.0 or really close but then again if economics has taught me anything it is that maximizing my leisure time maximizes my utility. 

Moreover, I am an unapologetically filthy utility maximizer.

I couldn't have said it better myself... And my friends think I'm weird ;)
