I think only people who took both can tell you for sure :) I have equal number of friends who have MBA and who have JD degrees and that doesn't tell me anything besides that some wanted to be a lawyer, some wanted to advance their business skills. From my own view - LSAT is a difficult exam.
 I heard that if you're good at math - not even college calculus, more like High school level, plus reading and grammar, you could do well on GMAT. The benefit of GMAT, again in my opinion only, is that you can learn math with enough practice. LSAT skills are somewhat difficult to just learn, especially as in my case, the Locigal Reasoning section, because the games are kind of like math, if you have done enough of them, you will see the pattern eventually. LR... I have done a TONN of them... and I guess.. I don't even know what to think anymore... :(

I thought the LSAT was easier, but scored higher as (a percentile) on the GMAT.
