LSAT/GPA Acceptance Ratios
« on: June 06, 2004, 01:21:38 PM »
Hi, I am english student hoping to study law in the states.

I am likely to finish here with a 1st class degree, which is the highest you can get. However, I was after  a table similar to the one found on Yale's website for the complete breakdown of accepted applicants, eg their GPA and LSAT scores, to see what I mean see the link below.

Only some schools publish that information. Typically, it is available at the LSAC website.

If you look at the info on specific schools, some will have the table, and some will not.

Thanks for the info. Do you also know how I might asess my chances better, and to also decide more accurately on where to apply, given I cannot directly convert my Degree to GPA?

Well assuming that your GPA is satisfactorily high enough, it will really come down to your LSAT score.  Once you have that information, you'll have just about all you need to know where you'll be competitive.
