UC Davis
GPA Mean: 3.09
LSAT Mean: 153

My 3.05 in computer engineering is at the 44% mark, but I'm in the top 30% of my major.

so someone was asking before about grade inflation...  this is an example of what i would NOT call grade inflation.  the average GPA is really high, but so is the average LSAT score.  so the GPA *should* be high, because those are some really smart kids.

Then how do you account for top schools with lower average GPAs?

Here I go replying late again, heh.

UMN:

Mean LSAT: 153
Mean GPA: 3.2

My LSAT: 156 (well, at least I got over my school's dismal average)
My GPA: 3.819 (91%)

Damn, I wish my school did A+'s.  I would have at least 25 credits of A+'s in my 5 Hebrew classes alone.  That would've been wonderful. :P

I'll reply late to this one as well...

Kettering University
Mean GPA: 3.00
Mean LSAT: 153

My GPA: 3.69
My LSAT: 164

It's hard to get a high GPA at my undergrad.  0% get a 4.0+ and only 2% get a 3.80-3.99.

grade deflation/strict grading.  i'm assuming you're talking about top schools with lower average GPAs and still with high LSAT scores.
