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

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