Who will get into the highest school??

Best friend and I are just curious if you think higher lsat/ lower gpa or Lower lsat/higher gpa will win out. We both want to go to the same school and then open a practice together, however if one of us gets into a much better school than the other then obviously they will go to that school.

I voted higher GPA lower LSAT.  Some schools are just plain unwilling to go below the 3.0 mark.

Pretty big GPA difference; not as big LSAT difference.  167 should suffice for most schools; 2.88 probably will not.

The 3.0 GPA threshold is pretty significant.

Schools are going to be uneasy about the split; I can see the split scorer getting into Chicago, but not H, for example. The more rounded scorer has a good shot at H.

Isn't the University of Denver the highest school?

Altitude-wise?  I think you both will get full rides there.
